Pliant Technologies upgrades its CrewCom solution to enable high-density mode

Pliant Technologies has recently announced the CrewCom v1.10 Update. This firmware and software update adds two features as well as several enhancements to its capabilities.

Topping the list is the addition of the High Density mode. It is a selectable mode of operation that allows user densities to increase by more than five-fold. When implemented, this mode supports up to 32 Radio Packs (RPs) on a single Radio Transceiver (RT) while allowing any of the RPs to communicate using four available full-duplex talk paths. In addition, users could simultaneously deploy Normal mode-enabled RPs and RTs along with High Density mode-enabled hardware.

“At Pliant, we pride ourselves on providing advanced communication products to the ever-changing needs of the industry, continuously updating our product offerings to provide cutting-edge communications solutions,” says Gary Rosen, Vice President of Global Sales for Pliant Technologies. “By offering this new software and firmware update at no charge to our flagship wireless intercom system, all CrewCom users can now access an additional mode of operation and more features than ever before at no additional cost.”

Pliant has also made system setup easier with its new Auto Configuration function. This makes the out-of-box experience simpler as a series of menus walk the user through the setup process by simply plugging in the needed hardware using standard Cat-5e/6 or fiber connections, turning on the Control Unit (CU), and selecting the Auto Configure menu option. If more customization is required or a larger system with more than three RTs needs to be deployed, the CrewWare application can be used to create a tailored system configuration specific to the application.

The system has also been improved, including external sync indication on both the CU and in CrewWare, auto system reboot when changing applicable system setup parameters, remote microphone kill per conference, and a new RP Summary menu added to the CU.
