Pliant Technologies’ latest updates to its CrewCom wireless intercom system will be on display for the first time internationally at ISE 2019 (Booth 7-V228). The newest firmware incorporates general system improvements as well as new Oceania 900MHz models. Pliant will also feature the system’s new Fiber Hub for a more efficient system deployment. The Fiber Hub (CHB-8F) expands system capabilities by allowing up to eight fiber connections using standard SFP-based single mode fiber ports along with a single RJ-45 copper port to interface to existing CrewNet connections.
The design of CrewCom offers a price advantage for larger applications, when comparing the actual cost of deploying many wireless users in a production or sizable installation project. CrewCom’s distributed architecture design provides the flexibility of a matrix/party-line without the complexity, cost or limitations of either system.
Unlike a matrix-based architecture, CrewCom is based on a decentralized network platform. CrewCom wireless products have the ability to put RF coverage where needed, all while employing a consistent user interface throughout the system. This enables the system to adapt to the RF challenges facing productions. CrewCom’s CrewNet proprietary network coordinates and transports all system timing, audio conferences, signaling and control. CrewNet can operate over standard Cat5e (or above) and single mode fiber lines.
CrewCom offers professional full-duplex Radio Packs (RPs), multiple simultaneous frequency bands and scalability for a variety of broadcast, live sound, installation and industrial projects.
