Clear-Com Announces Scalable IP Arcadia Central Station Platform
Clear-Com announced the Arcadia Central Station, a scalable IP platform that integrates all wired and wireless “partyline” systems, including the FreeSpeak family of digital wireless solutions and HelixNet Digital Partyline. The system can license up to 96 IP ports in a single RU device, with further licensing add-ons anticipated in the future, making Arcadia the intercom centerpiece for a range of application and partyline workflows.
Arcadia combines digital, analog and AoIP intercom technologies into a single integrated system. From the Broadway stage to a growing community congregation to the largest and most complex live events, Arcadia is ideally suited for a wide variety of applications.
Arcadia provides general connectivity to a wide range of Clear-Com endpoints through a mixture of two-wire and four-wire audio ports, together with third-party Dante and AES67 AoIP devices. Additionally, it supports the full range of FreeSpeak digital wireless products, encompassing the 1.9 GHz, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It also supports the upcoming integration with HelixNet, the wired digital partyline system.
Arcadia has two large front panel touch screens, with four rotary encoders to quickly scroll through menus or for use as a four-way key station. The system is configured and monitored through a new, re-imagined version of Clear-Com’s browser-based CCM software featuring an interface that guides users through all steps of the process.
