New HX-Delta Frame Offers High Performance Across Multiple Performance Spaces
FRANKFURT, APRIL 10, 2013 Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communications systems, will debut the newest addition to its line of Eclipse HX Digital Matrix Systems, the Eclipse HX-Delta Matrix Frame, at Prolight + Sound 2013 (Hall 8.0, Stand L51). The Eclipse HX-Delta offers the connectivity and high capacity of a larger matrix system in a 3RU frame, giving users more flexible installation options.
The cost-effective and compact Eclipse HX-Delta is optimal for installation across several areas of a large performance space or concert venue. It provides two CPU cards for redundant system control, with the option of up to four varied I/O frame cards and up to three interface modules in a 3RU frame. Instead of installing large system frames in just one location, the Eclipse HX-Delta gives users the option of building a distributed matrix system. This offers a more flexible workflow and permits shorter cable runs between system frames and intercom panels, cutting down on cabling costs.
“No other matrix line offers such a wide range of advanced control panels, intercom interfaces and system frames as the Eclipse HX,” says Stephen Sandford, Product Manager at Clear-Com. “With the addition of the Eclipse HX-Delta to the already extensive variety of Eclipse HX frames, Clear-Com provides users with a complete intercom solution for every type of live production.”
The HX-Delta interface cards provide users with a variety of connectivity options. The Eclipse HX-Delta frame uses all of the current Eclipse interface cards, such as the E-MADI64-HX 64 bi-directional channel card, the IVC-32-HX IP connection card and the E-Que Integra integrated wireless or E1/T1 trunking card, to name a few. In addition to the four interface card slots, the HX-Delta also provides three internal slots for interface modules. These allow the HX-Delta to integrate seamlessly with other third-party communication devices, such as telephones, two-way radios and camera intercoms.
The Eclipse HX systems, comprising the Eclipse HX-Omega, Eclipse HX-Median, Eclipse HX-PiCo and Eclipse HX-Delta matrices, along with the EHX Software, allow users to make system-wide changes rapidly. They also provide simplified setup, operation and administration as well as high system capacity for many audio and user connections. Clear-Com’s V-Series and iStation user panels, existing frame I/O cards and interfaces, are all compatible with the Eclipse HX range, providing a seamless and logical upgrade path for most existing Eclipse customers.
