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.

Digital Network Partyline is a wired intercom platform for full-duplex dynamic group communication, with I.V.Core technologies at the core and offers all the benefits of digital audio and network-friendly characteristics.

> HelixNet

®

HelixNet

HelixNet Digital Network Partyline System uniquely delivers all features and functions of industry- standard partyline systems with digital audio clarity as well as IP connectivity to any digital network.

Not only can HelixNet operate over any standard shielded twisted-pair cable (microphone or

CAT5/6), but all audio channels, program audio and distributed Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) can run on a facility’s standard IT network infrastructure via an Ethernet/LAN connection.

HelixNet Main Station

The HMS-4X Main Station offers

24 channels of full-duplex audio and program audio. It features the legendary

“Clear-Com Sound” quality for a highly intelligible audio experience. Hardware auto-discovery, intuitive menu operations, and channel accessibility are also unique features that make system setup and maintenance effortless.

Multiple systems may also be linked together over a fiber or Ethernet connection to support an even greater number of users.

• High Channel Density. 12 channels of audio and power are standard per

Main Station. 24 channels are available via an optional expansion. Up to three

Main Stations may be linked to share

I/O expansion slots and up to 24 intercom channels of audio/power

(optional channel expansion required).

• Any combination of Main Stations and Remote Stations (up to a total of

6) may be stacked in order to have one headset and mic used to address all channels.

• No Hum. No Buzz. All-digital system offers immunity to electro-magnetic interference and ground loops.

• High User Capacity. A single Main

Station can support up to 60 users over Ethernet and 20 over mic cable.

• Single Cable Operation. All networked intercom channels and power for beltpacks or a combination of user devices can be transmitted over a single shielded twisted-pair cable

(Ex. Microphone cable for powerline,

CAT5 or CAT6 cable for PoE).

• Seamless Linking. System resources are shared over a LAN or fiber link so users can select local or remote partyline channels and program audio feeds. Optional 2- or 4-wire interface modules further extends connectivity to existing analog partyline or matrix intercoms.

• Easy Configuration. Using Clear-Com’s

Core Configuration Manager (CCM),

HelixNet system configuration and setup is easy through the free, browser-based software. It provides the same menu functionality as

HelixNet Main menus. Supported by the latest versions of all major browsers on Mac, PC and tablet platforms.
