Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak Edge is now shipping
Clear-Com® has announced that FreeSpeak Edge™ is now shipping, following extensive field tests and final engineering testing. The latest addition to the FreeSpeak™ family of digital wireless intercom solutions, FreeSpeak Edge 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 built using audio-over-IP AES67 connectivity, an advanced 5 GHz chipset with a proprietary radio stack development optimized for intercom, and exclusive RF technology from Clear-Com based on OFDM. The 5 GHz band is “an ideal choice” for large scale communications, as it can be managed with frequency coordination for reduced interference and offers “the widest” range of RF channels available. FreeSpeak Edge can be combined seamlessly with FreeSpeak II 1.9 GHz and 2.4 GHz systems, supporting three wireless bands across a single unified communications system.
FreeSpeak Edge is ready for applications including sports stadiums, live events, military installations and broadcast facilities. Final testing efforts resulted in an IP54 rating for the beltpack, ensuring that it could withstand harsh production environments.
