New Clear-Com E-IPA Is Audio-over-IP Card

Clear-Com has introduced a high-density audio-and-intercom-over-IP connection card for the Eclipse HX series, called E-IPA. 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 as well as for interoperating with AES67 compatible products. With this card, Clear-Com can deliver up to 256 IP ports in the Eclipse HX-Median and Omega systems.

The E-IPA card comes in 16, 32, 48 and 64-port options, and is compatible with Eclipse HX-Delta, Median and Omega systems. Eclipse HX-Delta can support up to three E-IPA cards, while the Median and Omega can carry up to four, allowing users to build an extremely dense network with a mix of connectivity options.

E-IPA is natively AES67 compliant and SMPTE2110-30 ready. Now Eclipse HX systems with the E-IPA card can easily interoperate with other AES67 compliant products. 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.

Here are all the specs.
