RFO installs Clear-Com

Thursday, 05 November 2009

Réseau France Outre-mer (RFO) has purchased Clear-Com's IP-based intercom software, Clear-Com Concert Version 2.0 to improve staff communications at its HQ.

The network has also purchased a 96-port Clear-Com Eclipse Omega digital matrix intercom system and 39 V-Series panels, along with 12 FreeSpeak Integra digital wireless beltpacks.

RFO installed the Concert software in the editing suites at its headquarters. The system enables editors working in the suites to connect with other staff in the building - they only need to log on to the Concert software from a laptop or desktop computer to communicate with their colleagues using the Eclipse Omega digital matrix system. Concert's ability to connect to Eclipse is enabled by I.V.Core, Clear-Com's revolutionary IP technology for intercoms.

"RFO had already experienced success with Clear-Com, with some equipment previously installed at the Réunion [overseas TV and radio] location, so we thought it might be interested in Concert as well. We demonstrated how the Concert software, in conjunction with other Clear-Com products, would address the latency issue and other challenges. The network station was very impressed and sold on the solution," said Jean-Philippe Blanchard, director of the Broadcast Division for Audiopole, Clear-Com's distributor in France, and the systems integrator on the project
