FreeSpeak Edge promises to deliver the best audio quality and enhanced performance in live performance environments.
Professional voice communication systems for live productions provider Clear-Com has announced that its wireless intercom system FreeSpeak Edge is now shipping, following extensive field tests and final engineering testing to ensure the most robust and capable product possible. The latest addition to the FreeSpeak family of digital wireless intercom solutions, FreeSpeak Edge promises to deliver the best audio quality and enhanced performance in live performance environments.
The system gives users more control and configuration options, thanks to advanced frequency coordination capabilities and design features in the system’s transceivers and beltpacks.
FreeSpeak Edge is the result of extensive feedback from existing FreeSpeak II power users and exhaustive field tests across applications including sports stadiums, live events, military installations and broadcast facilities. Final testing efforts resulted in an impressive IP54 rating for the beltpack, ensuring that it could withstand harsh production environments.
FreeSpeak Edge has been built using audio-over-IP AES67 connectivity, an advanced 5 GHz chipset with a proprietary radio stack development optimised for intercom, and exclusive RF technology from Clear-Com based on OFDM. By investing engineering and development resources in a completely new wireless band, Clear-Com hopes to deliver a future-proof product that protects the investments of partners and customers.
“We are thrilled that FreeSpeak Edge is now available to our partners and end-users,” said Craig Fredrickson, Senior Product Manager, Clear-Com. “There is truly nothing like it on the market, and we can’t wait to see the new and exciting ways that it’s put to use.”
