Clear-Com’s New Agent-IC Mobile App

News Image
Clear-Com, the leader in wired, wireless and IP communication solution, has announced that the company is now shipping Agent-IC, a new mobile app that enables users of Eclipse-HX (EHX) Matrix intercom systems to remote access from an iPhone or iPad over 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi / IP networks.

The app provides capabilities similar to an intercom control panel for connecting studio staff and OB teams in remote locations, or crew spread across wide areas for live events. Agent-IC fits in a shirt pocket and connects users from virtually anywhere in the world.

The Agent-IC app is both cost effective and easy to deploy, providing global access to a host Eclipse-HX matrix intercom system. Users of iPhones or iPads running iOS 8.0 or later can install the app directly from the App Store. Accessing the app requires proper authorization and system pre-configuration from the broadcaster’s system administrator using EHX.

“Current Eclipse-HX users who have received the new Agent-IC system are pleased with the global on-demand access to Eclipse resources,” said Peter Stallard, Senior Product Manager at Clear-Com. “Clear-Com is known for its breadth of hardware control key panels, integrated wireless beltpack and IP-based PC client panels. Now, as Agent-IC hits the streets, any authorized mobile user can enjoy high quality, full featured access to their Eclipse-HX system from anywhere around the globe using their tablet or smartphone.”

Managed under central administration control from the host Eclipse-HX system, the Agent-IC app is fully featured with point-to-point calling, point-to-multi-point group calling, partyline, PTT, local cross-point audio level control and notification functions. Access to the host Eclipse-HX matrix is secure, using NSA-approved audio encryption.

Remote users are provided with an ergonomically-designed user interface configured like a dedicated intercom panel, which enables them to monitor and/or contribute to assigned matrix resources. Agent-IC also provides excellent audio quality based on the G.722 codec and is accessible via multiple IP networks, with user selectable optimization for network conditions.

Agent-IC, together with the complete Clear-Com line of new and enhanced products, will be available for demonstration at IBC 2015 on Stand 10.D29.
