|After Prolight+Sound Show 2011, Frankfurt/Main, Germany, Optocore GmbH, a pioneer in fibre-optic based audio and data network distribution, announced that the company had enjoyed one of its best trade shows so far.
The fruits of Optocore’s new strategic partnership with Clear-Com, demonstrated in the new V3R-FX-Intercom for Clear-Com (four Intercom channel unit) and X6R-FX 8 Intercom for Clear-Com (eight Intercom channel unit), received an enthusiastic reception. Also showcased at InfoComm11, along with all other Optocore's network solutions.
Clear-Com are the latest high-profile manufacturer with whom Optocore have formed a successful alliance, with more expected to follow. “We are delighted and proud that our concept of offering open-platform technologies, enabling the transport and routing of standard pro audio formats, has culminated in this cooperation with leading intercom company, Clear-Com,”stated Optocore marketing director, Tine Helmle.
“From the outset, our philosophy has been to act as an open platform network provider. This has led to great success and many key manufacturers are now recognising the advantages of working with Optocore, as our technologies are market proven. Operating over an open professional audio network means we can easily adapt to clients’ needs.”
In the case of Clear-Com, both devices have been built on Optocore’s X6R and V3R signal converter platforms — but instead of analogue I/Os they are equipped with intercom standard RJ45 connectors. This enables Clear-Com Eclipse Matrix Systems, 4-wires and intercom control panels to be easily connected.
The intercom audio data will pass through the Optocore network together with the intercom control data, enabling the Optocore router to couple intercom panels with remote matrices and route audio channels between every device in the network.
Setting out the advantages, Clear-Com Product Manager, Simon Browne, confirmed: “The integration with the Optocore system enables our Eclipse intercom systems to operate on the same redundant fibre, or SANE network, providing remote users with fully intelligent panel operation, PC management, audio programme and IFBs with ease.”
