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.

Active 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 Active Antennas.

The Antenna Splitter extends the base station to create an expansive coverage area with multiple antennas, which provide connections to the wireless beltpacks.

Expansive wireless coverage can be achieved by strategically placing up to 10 remote antennas across a wide coverage area. Each Active Antenna can be positioned as far as 3,200 feet away from the base station or Matrix, and each powered Antenna can create a coverage zone of up to 1,475 feet.

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 20 full-duplex wireless beltpacks using either or both 1.9GHz and 2.4GHz bands can be connected.

In an integrated Eclipse HX matrix setup, as many as 50 1.9GHz and

40 2.4GHz (or 25 1.9GHz in North

America plus 40 2.4GHz) full-duplex wireless beltpacks can be used at the same time by positioning up to 20 or more distributed remote antennas at strategic locations. These beltpack users are then able to directly communicate with any other remote or local matrix panel or other wireless or wired beltpack user who is on the Eclipse HX

Matrix System network.
