Clear-Com unveils software-based intercom system

Clear-Com
Communication Systems first software-based intercom system, Clear-Com Concert, is
now available through its worldwide network of dealers and distributors. This
new multi-user conferencing and intercom product provides organizations of all
sizes with a reliable and cost-effective way to easily intercommunicate.
Based on
Voice-Over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, Clear-Com Concert’s enhanced
audio features deliver crystal-clear sound and non-blocking communications over
a standard Local Area Network or Internet between local and remote users.
This eliminates the need for picking up a phone or connecting to a conference
bridge. An intuitive interface facilitates ad-hoc communications and makes the
user the conductor of his or her own audio conference with easy drag-and-drop
functionality and simple point-and-click controls. The ‘Presence Awareness’
feature monitors participants’ availability, allowing users to communicate more
efficiently in highly demanding and collaborative settings.
“Clear-Com
Concert is one of the most flexible and innovative intercom products on the
market,” explains Jake Dodson, Clear-Com Vice President of Product Management.
“It makes communications seamless and accessible to all users without the need
for a large hardware investment. Conferences can be initiated within minutes
and are of such high clarity that it actually sounds as if they’re in the same
room with other participants.”
The
system, scalable to many hundreds of users, is designed with proprietary
protocols and error recovery algorithms for mission-critical applications. The
system uses AES 128-bit encryption to provide “online banking” grade security
for protecting privacy of transmissions. With texting and online chat
capabilities that offer easy escalation to a voice session, users have
increased control and flexibility. Supporting a variety of CODECs including
wideband and ultra wideband, Clear-Com Concert provides realistic audio that
captures more components of the human voice for speech quality enhancement than
those previously available on the market.
