About Intercom Technology
An intercom (intercommunication system) is a standalone, closed-circuit system for
one-way “simplex” and/or two-way “duplex” communication. The general purpose of a
professional intercom system is to facilitate simple to complex communication setups
for a few to thousands of users who need to be continuously on talk and/or listen
mode. Two-way communication systems can operate in half-duplex or full-duplex. With
half-duplex systems, one party talks while the other party listens. With full-duplex
systems, both parties can talk and listen at the same time as if they are in a natural
conversation in person.
Users, who have different roles in a particular operation, can be in a conference or
partyline together. Or they can be sub-divided into a matrix of independent groups in
any one or many private intercom channels. In addition to establishing communication
points, intercom can also interface with third-party devices such as 2-way radios,
4-wire audios, telephone, TV cameras, AES3 digital audio, relay control (for signal
light activation or door control), etc. Coordinating activities via voice or through
third-party devices such as relay controls require low-latency (delays measured
in milliseconds).
The core technology of an intercom system could be based on one of the following
platforms: 2-wire/analog, 4-wire/digital, wireless, and IP networks. The decision
to deploy one platform over the other will greatly depend on requirements,
environment and budget. These intercom platforms operate independently or
can be integrated to form a larger system in order to address specific unique
communication workflow needs. Moreover, intercom systems can be bridged
together with different communication systems as part of a multi-platform solution.
In certain applications, intercom systems need to be geographically distributed to
support the various communication positions in a given workflow. Therefore, they
can be connected over 2-wire or 4-wire; MADI for close-distance connections such
as floor-to-floor; optical fiber for short to long distances within a building; E1/T1 for
inner-city connections; and IP networks (LAN, WAN, or Internet) for connections
across a wide area, across town, and across the country.

Wireless IFB
Wireless IFB (interruptible fold back)
systems operate between 486.4 and
691.1MHz. Wireless IFBs are used
for one-directional communication.
Directors and other management can
use this to monitor program audio,
or for talent cueing and crew communications during a production.
The PRC-2 receiver provides simplicity
and flexibility in a package that is
intuitive for untrained users to operate.
Wireless IFB uses +/-20 kHz FM
deviation for efficient use of the
bandwidth, with compandor noise
reduction circuitry for an excellent
signal to noise ratio.
Operating Frequencies:
486.4 to 691.1 MHz
Block 19: 486.4 to 511.9 MHz

Transceiver Antennas
FreeSpeak II users can roam thousands of feet from the base station while staying connected.
This is achieved through the Cellular Roaming capability between distributed Transceiver Antennas.
The antenna splitter extends the base station to create an expansive coverage area with multiple
antennas, which provide connections to the wireless beltpacks.
Base Station
Expansive wireless coverage can be
achieved by strategically placing up
to 10 remote antennas across a wide
coverage area. Each Transceiver
Antenna can be positioned away from
the base station or matrix up to 3,280
feet using a CAT5 connection or as far
as 65,000 feet using a fiber connection.
Each powered Antenna can create a
coverage zone of up to 300 ft (indoor)
or up to 800 feet (outdoor).
Unique to FreeSpeak II is the ability for
1.9GHz and 2.4GHz beltpacks and active
Transceiver Antennas to co-operate in
the same system (either the base station
or integrated matrix solution), thus
increasing both the quantity of wireless
users and cell roaming area.
When using the base station, up to 25
full-duplex wireless beltpacks using
either or both 1.9GHz and 2.4GHz
bands can be connected.
