RP Dynamics Acquires FreeSpeak II

News Image
AV equipment rental firm, RP Dynamics, has purchased FreeSpeak II 1.9GHz roaming wireless solution.

The system is the first to be sold into the Canadian rental services market, and the deal was completed by Clear-Com's Canadian partner Gerr Audio.

RP Dynamics is now renting FreeSpeak II systems either as standalone wireless intercoms or in combination with a Clear-Com Eclipse-HX Matrix digital intercom frame, with up to 15 FreeSpeak II programmable beltpacks.

With its ability to support up to five separate channels per beltpack, providing complete roaming coverage using multiple antennas, the FreeSpeak II standalone and FreeSpeak II Integra (integrated Eclipse HX combination) is head-and-shoulders above the typical partyline intercoms offered by most equipment rental firms. When combined with the unbelievable flexibility of the Eclipse-HX Digital Matrix Frame, the result is a wireless intercom system with connections to well over 16 partylines and the flexibility to seamlessly cover difficult buildings and remote zones – fulfilling the intercom needs of any broadcaster or event planner.

"We recently deployed a Clear-Com Eclipse-HX matrix intercom to the Rogers Sportsnet hockey TV coverage facility at CBC Toronto's downtown studio," said Christie. "We had such success with Clear-Com's earlier model, the CellCom wireless intercom system, in achieving complete RF coverage throughout this 11,000 square foot studio that we jumped at the opportunity to purchase the FreeSpeak II system when it became available, because our customers deserve access to the very best and the most flexible wireless intercom systems on the market today."

The FreeSpeak II wireless intercom system operates in multiple license-free bands (1.897-1.933GHz), delivering improved roaming capability for reliable wireless connections, superior digital ‘Clear-Com Sound’ for clear intelligibility, and the ability to serve large-scale, multi-zone production areas. The FreeSpeak II's Active Antenna system provides cellular-like roaming to beltpack users, using distributed antennas to provide complete venue coverage.
