Encore™ Party-line Communication Systems
Raising Performance
Raising Performance to New Levels
Clear, reliable, and proven
party-line communication solutions
Based upon Clear-Com’s market proven communication
technology, Clear-Com Encore™ delivers improved audio
performance and offers a more streamlined, contemporary and
user-intuitive design.
Clear-Com Encore is highly compatible with other Clear-Com or
third-party components. This level of flexibility enables users to
assemble the right system for their unique needs and can easily
scale to support the growing production environment.
All components are constructed and proven to withstand
rugged usage in fast-paced, demanding and high intensity
applications. Even under the most challenging conditions, the
noise attenuating headsets and noise-cancelling microphones,
combined with anti-sidetone circuitry, minimize acoustic noise
and feedback to provide superior sound quality.
Clear-Com party-line intercom systems are widely used in live
performance theaters, concert halls and sport stadiums. They
are also found in small to mid-sized TV/broadcast studios,
smaller broadcast production trucks, industrial settings, houses
of worship and in simulation applications.

TW-47 2-way radio/walkie-talkie interface
EF-701M Interface
Compatible with both Clear-Com and RTS®, TW-47 connects
virtually any set of walkie-talkies to anyone on the wired
party-line intercom; simply use one walkie-talkie as a basestation. The base-station radio is keyed from the intercom call
signal. Extensive RF and EMI isolation prevents interference
from entering the intercom system. Separate transmit and
receive level controls are provided, along with audio level
and transmitter keying indicators. The stand-alone interface is
powered by the intercom line.
The EF-701M interface converts a single channel of standard or
TW party-line intercom to four-wire audio, while also converting
call signals to RS-422 data (and back). The resulting four-wire
audio plus RS-422 data can then be sent to a Clear-Com Matrix
port, fiber-optic converter (modem) or connected to another
EF-701M over twisted-pair cable such as CAT-5E.
TW-12C System Interface
The TWC-701 2-channel cable adapter combines two
intercom channels on to a single 3-pin XLR cable. All two-wire
(TW) beltpack models require this adapter to support a two
channel connection to a multi-channel Clear-Com system. The
TWC-704 provides four TWC circuits in 1RU. Each TWC-701
and TWC-704 module can drive up to fifteen RS-603 series
TW-12C connects one intercom system to another.
Optoisolation eliminates hums and buzzes. Compensates for
level and impedance differences between systems. Allows
