CLEAR-COM UNVEILS FURTHER ENHANCEMENTS TO ITS TEMPEST DIGITAL WIRELESS INTERCOMS AT THE 2013 NAB SHOW

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 3, 2013 ? Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communications systems, announces further enhancements to its Tempest Digital Wireless Intercoms at the 2013 NAB Show (Booth C8008). Included among the latest offerings are a new Tempest®900 BeltStation and a Remote Line Extender. These solutions further enhance the systems’ use for broadcasters requiring ultra-portable wireless communications in RF-rich environments.

The Tempest line of feature-rich wireless intercoms comprises the 2.4 GHz Tempest®2400 and the 900 MHz Tempest900 wireless systems in either a two- or four-channel offering. Both Tempest systems deliver cutting-edge RF technologies to ensure interference-free communications for mobile productions and broadcast facilities. The Tempest2400 offers a Seamless Roaming feature, which provides broadcasters with continuous wireless coverage across an expanded production space. The Seamless Roaming feature allows BeltStation users to migrate between as many as 16 different Tempest BaseStations (coverage areas or zones), allowing audio professionals to focus on critical production cues rather than on the settings of their wireless BeltStations. This gives them the ability to move freely and wirelessly throughout large venues separated by large distances, such as multi-studio complexes and sports arenas. Both Seamless Roaming and iSelect Roaming are available to accommodate virtually every application need.

As part of a continuing effort to expand the Tempest system further, Clear-Com is introducing the latest Tempest900 BeltStation. Equipped with an advanced Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA), the new BeltStation has an increased range, allowing more wireless coverage. Becoming increasingly more popular in the mobile phone market, a PIFA is low profile and has an omnidirectional signal pattern, which means it can receive a connection from any direction. Backwards compatible with Tempest900 firmware version 3.0, the new BeltStations will continue to operate within the 900MHz frequency band and are fully compatible with all versions of the Tempest900 BaseStations and BeltStations. The longer wavelengths and wider symbol width in this band allow the system’s signals to break through dense walls and other structural objects more readily, increasing the range for users and reducing any potential loss of audio.

The new Tempest Remote Transceiver Line Extender increases the systems’ cable run distance of a remote antenna by 3,000 feet (914m) with one Line Extender or 2,000 feet (609m) per Line Extender if using more than one Line Extender. This allows for the deployment of larger systems with longer cable runs from the BaseStation. A total of three Line Extenders can be connected to provide total coverage of up to 7,500 feet (2286m).

Tieline Announces Strategic Partnership With NETIA

Partnership Includes Integration of Tieline Report-IT Enterprise With NETIA

PERTH, Western Australia — April 3, 2013 — Tieline, the Codec Company, today announced a strategic partnership with market-leading content management solution provider NETIA, which includes the integration of Report-IT Enterprise with NETIA’s software solutions for managing and broadcasting radio content. This partnership delivers improved workflows to both Tieline and NETIA customers for ingest of news content and enhanced tools for mobile journalists in the field.

Both organisations worked closely with one of their mutual customers, ABC Australia, to integrate the ingest of recorded Report-IT audio files into NETIA’s Radio-Assist(TM) using FTP sharing. Tieline has also integrated iSnippet, NETIA’s latest Radio-Assist editing tool, into Report-IT Enterprise for iPhone(R)/iPad(R).

“Clearly Tieline’s partnership with NETIA opens up an entirely new world of opportunities for mobile journalism by making it easier and faster for journalists to get their stories to air via NETIA Radio-Assist systems. Journalists now also have access to improved and streamlined report editing capabilities with the integration of NETIA’s iSnippet editing application into Report-IT Enterprise for iPhone and iPad,” said Charlie Gawley, vice president of sales, APAC/EMEA for Tieline. “For engineers and all radio news stakeholders, this will deliver improved workflows which reduce time, effort, and costs.”

The range of editing tools available within Radio-Assist automation products is now available for iOS devices. Sharing the same look and ergonomic principles as the desktop interface, the new iPhone- and iPad-compatible iSnippet tool allows field reporters and other remote users to enjoy Radio-Assist audio editing capabilities — familiar from the desktop — on their portable devices.

“As the world moves increasingly towards the use of mobile devices, we are delighted to work with Tieline to deliver broadcast solutions on portable devices to bring a new level of flexibility for news operators working remotely,” said Paul Henri Oltra, vice president and chief technology officer at NETIA.

The Report-IT Enterprise application for iPhone and iPad allows reporters and announcers to send live broadcast-quality IP audio wirelessly from any remote location to a Tieline IP codec in the studio. Report-IT can also broadcast live and record at the same time, so audio can be sent in real time to a Tieline codec in the studio, or uploaded via FTP sharing to a news server with no codec required in the studio.
