Clear-Com will debut the E-IPA connection card at InfoComm 2018 — a high-density audio-over-IP connection card for the Eclipse HX digital matrix intercom family. Natively AES67 compliant and SMPTE2110-30 ready, the E-IPA card provides 64 streams of low-latency and high audio bandwidth connections for linking existing and new IP-based Clear-Com products. With this card, Clear-Com can deliver up to 256 IP ports in the Eclipse HX-Median and Omega systems, making it the highest-density matrix intercom system available on the market for optimizing communication needs.
The E-IPA card comes in 16, 32, 48, and 64-port options, and is compatible with Eclipse HX-Delta, Median and Omega modular systems allowing users to build an extremely dense network with a mix of connectivity options. Compared to other Audio/Intercom-over-IP connectivity options on the market, intercom users can optimize their intercom investment on Eclipse HX and conserve system card slots for other connectivity needs.
E-IPA is natively AES67 compliant and SMPTE2110-30 ready. For example, Clear-Com’s flagship FreeSpeak II wireless intercom system has an all-new AES67-based IP Wireless Transceiver (IPT): with up to 64 IP ports, the E-IPA card can support up to 64 IPTs and 64 FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks on just one card over AES67 compliant IP networks.
