On Monday, Pliant Technologies, the new professional products division of CoachComm, introduced a new professional wireless intercom product, CrewCom. This is the first product launched by Pliant since the division was announced earlier last month. CrewCom is based on a totally new technology platform that offers “the industry’s highest user density, unparalleled range and scalability,” according to the company.
It features excellent voice quality, 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 large or small can now easily and quickly deploy communications solutions to connect more people in more places than ever before.
Pliant designed a new proprietary network for CrewCom called CrewNet. This network coordinates and transports all system timing, audio, signaling, and controls. CrewNet is capable of operating over standard Cat-5e (or greater) and/or single mode fiber lines, breaking the current barriers for wireless intercom range and expandability. In addition, CrewCom’s highly-intuitive graphical software called CrewWare provides for 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.
CrewCom wireless products are available in the 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz (900 MHz is 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. This enables the system to easily adapt to the RF challenges facing production and entertainment professionals worldwide.
