The Tempest Wireless Platform
®
Wireless communication is an essential part of modern day
productions and has become a vital piece of most intercom
systems. With fewer resources and larger production areas,
crew members need to do more, go farther and be mobile—
and do so without missing a beat. Having reliable wireless
intercom systems has never been more critical.
Areas of the frequency spectrum that have traditionally
been used for wireless intercoms are crowded and more
difficult to use. Licensing requirements, radio spectrum
reallocation and the wide variety of technologies compete
for the same air space.
The Tempest ® Wireless Platform offers a flawless solution
to break through wireless interference and offer a comprehensive wired-intercom feature set with the convenience,
flexibility and freedom of wireless operation.
Tempest2400
Available Worldwide
The Tempest Wireless Platform currently comprises the
Tempest2400 and Tempest900 systems, available in
2- and 4-channels, and in 2.4GHz or 900MHz frequency
bands, respectively.
The Tempest2400 and Tempest900 were designed to
complement one another and to address the inherent
characteristics of each RF technology. In appropriate
environments where both systems are allowed to
operate, the two products can also supplement one
another, allowing an increase in the number of users
that may be utilized in any given environment.

“We wanted to be proactive and ensure that we
gave ourselves as many options as possible.
Tempest2400’s ability to operate in the 2.4GHz
band worldwide was very attractive, but an added
bonus was how easy it was to configure the
BeltStations. Our crew really appreciated that
they can customize their BeltStations, label their
options and then use those same configurations
around the world.”
