Pliant Technologies is now shipping its professional wireless intercom system, CrewCom. The CrewCom wireless intercom range of products will be on display at ISE 2018 (Stand 7-X200) along with additional product offerings from Pliant.
CrewCom claims the industry’s smallest fully-featured professional full-duplex wireless radio packs, multiple simultaneous frequency bands, as well as a host of truly amazing user features. With CrewCom, production crews of all sizes can now easily and quickly deploy communications solutions to connect more people in more places than ever before.
For the small system and UHF-replacement market, CrewCom offers the easiest system deployment along with the most user friendly radio pack on the market. Even the most basic CrewCom system offers full features at a very competitive price. For high user count system requirements, the revolutionary design of CrewCom offers a significant price advantage for larger demanding applications, when comparing the actual cost of deploying many wireless users in a production. CrewCom offers 1,024 conferences that provide the flexibility of a matrix/party-line without the cost. Unlike a matrix-based architecture, CrewCom is based on a decentralized platform that puts system resources where they are needed, without the limitations found in a matrix. This entirely innovative approach to professional wireless intercoms enables CrewCom to handle almost any application from simple out-of-the-box solutions to large-scale designs for a range of installation projects for live sound, broadcast and industrial environments and more.
Pliant created a proprietary network for CrewCom called CrewNet. This network coordinates and transports all system timing, audio conferences, signaling, and control. CrewNet can operate over standard Cat-5e (or greater) and single mode fiber lines, breaking the current barriers for wireless intercom range. In addition, CrewCom’s highly-intuitive graphical software, called CrewWare, provides for comprehensive offline configuration, online control and real-time monitoring of all system components. These new software tools augment CrewCom’s ease-of-use and flexible system scalability. While this is a powerful tool available to all users, it is not required to operate the system.
CrewCom wireless products are available in 2.4GHz and 900MHz (900MHz are limited to where this band is legal). Any combination of these frequency ranges may be simultaneously used on the same CrewCom system, giving the ability to easily put global-friendly, dependable RF coverage where needed, all while employing a consistent user interface throughout the system.
