Pliant Technologies New CrewCom Wireless Intercom System

Pliant Technologies will be demonstrating its innovative professional wireless intercom system at this year’s shows. CrewCom can be simultaneously used in both 2.4GHz and 900MHz frequency bands.

The CrewCom range of products will be on display at the 2018 IBC Show, along with Pliant's line of SmartBoom PRO professional headsets. CrewCom is based on a new technology platform that offers the industry's highest wireless user counts, unparalleled range, and unprecedented scalability for a range of installation projects for live sound, broadcast, industrial, and more.

CrewCom features excellent voice quality, the industry's smallest fully-featured professional full-duplex radio packs, multiple simultaneous frequency bands, as well as a host of truly amazing user features. With CrewCom, production crews of all sizes can easily and quickly deploy communications solutions to connect more people in more places than ever before.

CrewCom wireless products are available in 2.4GHz and 900MHz models (900MHz are limited to where this band is legal). Any combination of these frequency bands 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.

For the smaller 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 an exceptional value. 

Unlike a matrix-based architecture, CrewCom is based on a decentralised network platform that puts system resources where they are needed. This 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 diverse range of installation projects.

Pliant will also display CrewCom’s graphical software, CrewWare. It provides 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 for productions of any size. 

While this is a powerful tool available at no additional charge to all users, it is not required to operate the system.

The SmartBoom PRO series of communications headsets are specifically designed for exceptional comfort, flexibility and durability. In addition to the innovative SmartBoom on/off microphone muting feature, the closed back, on-ear headsets feature enhanced acoustic isolation. The mic boom is flexible and has a dynamic noise-cancelling cardioid microphone optimized for voice communications.
