Clear-Com Reveals Eclipse Updates

News Image
Clear-Com has announced the delivery of new enhancements to the Eclipse HX Digital Matrix Intercom System.
The compact 3RU Eclipse HX-Delta matrix frame had its European debut at this year's IBC show in Amsterdam.
New capabilities of the Eclipse HX system include Ethernet/IP Intelligent Trunking with IVC-32-HX card redundancy, as well as dual-label and Arabic language support for V-Series panels.
The Eclipse HX-Delta system is optimal for installation across many different production environments, from mobile broadcast trucks to smaller and multi-level studios.
In addition, the Eclipse HX-Delta intercom system provides two CPU cards for redundant system control, along with the option of up to four varied I/O frame cards and up to three interface modules in a 3RU frame.
The Eclipse HX-Delta also gives broadcasters the option of building a distributed matrix system, offering flexible workflow and allowing shorter cable runs between system frames and intercom panels.
The size of Eclipse HX-Delta is a benefit for mobile truck installations where space is limited, but where varied and complex connectivity is required.
Similar to other Eclipse HX system frames, the Eclipse HX-Delta is also supported by the high-performance EHX Configuration Software and can be intelligently linked with Eclipse HX-PiCo, Eclipse HX-Median and Eclipse HX-Omega frames.
Clear-Com has also enhanced its 32-channel IVC-32-HX IP card to allow flexible Ethernet/IP intelligent trunking of up to 64, local and/or remote, Eclipse HX matrix frames.
A single IVC-32-HX IP card can now flexibly support both panel-to-matrix and matrix-to-matrix connectivity.
From its inception, the card has been designed to provide encrypted communications over standard IP networks and its use of the established G.722 audio codec has enabled low latency voice communications without the need for dedicated infrastructure or fiber pipes.
Consequently, IVC-32-HX IP can provide service over LAN, WLAN and Internet infrastructure, including mobile data networks.
In addition, the updated Eclipse HX offers the IVC-32-HX card redundancy feature. The new capability allocates a spare IVC-32-HX card to function as a hot redundant backup for one or more IVC-32-HX cards, which are located in the same matrix frame. On detection of a failure of the primary IVC-32-HX to communicate to its associated panels or matrices, the hot redundant backup card takes over service provision. 
Offering Arabic characters and dual label support on all V-Series panels is another significant enhancement to the Eclipse HX family. Previously, the V-Series panels uniquely offered 10-character and international character displays. Now, the panels can also support the Arabic language and allow operators to toggle between two predefined languages on the panel.
"We are very pleased to launch this latest set of capabilities to the Eclipse HX family, which further demonstrates Clear-Com's commitment to innovating intercom solutions for the broadcast market," says Peter Stallard, Senior Product Manager, Clear-Com.
"As increasingly more broadcasters are decentralizing their productions across multiple locations, the need for reliable and high-performance Ethernet/IP connectivity, as well as the extended language support, makes the Eclipse HX family the ideal matrix intercom solution for live productions on a local or global scale."
