BCIT Chooses Pliant Technologies' CrewCom Digital Wireless Intercom

News Image
Pliant Technologies' CrewCom Digital Wireless Intercom was the clear choice when British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) was looking to replace an outdated wired intercom system.

Renowned for its esteemed broadcast-focused curriculum, BCIT teaches broadcast journalism, television production, and video production, providing students with hands-on educational experiences within its multiple production studios. With Pliant's CrewCom intercom, students can now experience a cutting edge, modernized communications solution, providing an invaluable skillset to prepare students for a professional broadcast career.

When upgrading from a wired intercom to a digital, wireless solution, BCIT needed a system that would provide enough coverage for clear communication throughout the entire building, while also being able to have coverage across the building’s two floors. In addition to coverage requirements, BCIT’s broadcast program was also looking for a solution with a 900MHz frequency to avoid interference with pre-existing Wi-Fi infrastructures within the campus.

To ensure the institute was upgrading to the best solution for its specific needs, Kal Ng, broadcast engineer at BCIT, turned to Vidcom, an international systems integrator of high-end broadcast, streaming and post-production solutions. With Vidcom’s guidance and expertise, the institute acquired two identical CrewCom systems for its two main production studios, each of which consists of one Control Unit (CU), 18 Radio Packs (RP) and four Radio Transceivers (RT).
