Clear-Com enhances its Arcadia Central Station system with the integration of HelixNet Digital Partyline
Clear-Com has recently announced new features for Arcadia Central Station. The solution powers the company’s wired and wireless analog and digital intercom systems, together with Dante connectivity. The enhancement includes the integration with HelixNet Digital Partyline. New features also include a 5 GHz scanning tool for FreeSpeak Edge systems, along with increased beltpack capacity for FreeSpeak systems and an increase in licensed port capacity.
With full support for up to 64 HelixNet endpoints –including HelixNet Remote Stations, Speaker Stations, and Beltpacks– over 24 HelixNet-enabled channels, Arcadia is equipped to support even the largest of systems. The 5 GHz scanning tool will display and recommend open frequency channels for FreeSpeak Edge transceivers and beltpacks, assisting audio engineers in deploying their wireless system without interference from other Wi-Fi device traffic.
Arcadia now offers up to 128 IP ports, (previously 96), to allow for an additional eight FreeSpeak beltpacks, for a total of 40 (previously 32), and up to 24 ports for HelixNet channels – all while still providing additional intercom access through eight 4-wire ports, four 2-wire ports and up to 64 Dante audio ports.
“HelixNet integration is what everyone’s been waiting for,” explains Product Manager Kari Eythorsson. “Customer excitement upon hearing about this new feature has been encouraging, and people are really pleased with how comprehensive the integration is, along with the sheer capacity we’re able to offer in a single rackspace. With this latest update, Arcadia supports up to 24 channels of HelixNet across 64 endpoints, and we’re planning to integrate even more features in the future.”
