Clear-Com Ships V-Series IRIS Panels with AES67 Audio-over-IP

The new Clear-Com V-Series Iris Panels, which provide Eclipse HX users with low latency Audio-over-IP (AoIP) using AES67, are now shipping. The V-Series Iris panel can monitor and send communications over three concurrent AES67-compliant uncompressed audio IP streams, enabling systems to deliver high quality, uncompressed audio from intercom user to user with significantly reduced latency. When connected to Clear-Com’s new E-IPA card, which is natively AES67 compliant, users can deploy up to 64 Iris panels per card. The Iris panel also offers fully user-configurable color OLED displays, providing the user with label, tally and port information. EHX Supervisor Mode real time control allows label updates and monitoring on the fly.

The V-Series Iris panel is designed for productions that have fully converted to IP-based communications for distribution of video and audio. In addition, production teams can take advantage of the flexibility offered by combining V-Series Iris panels and multiple E-IPA cards; for example, a large sporting event might use a single frame with many wireless/panel connections on the same intercom network to cover an entire stadium or mega-churches may create multi-region intercom networks via LAN, WAN or the Internet to help broadcast services to churches around the world.

The V-series Iris panel is optimized for use with EHX 11.0 software to fully implement its AES67 connectivity, real time control and color tallies. It also has I.V. Core IP and 4-wire connections for backward compatibility with Eclipse frames running EHX 10.0 or earlier.
