Clear-Com Launches V-Series Iris Color Panel for AES-67 Audio Over IP

The new V-Series Iris panel can monitor and send communications over three concurrent AES-67 uncompressed audio IP streams, enabling systems to deliver high quality, uncompressed AES-67 audio from user to user with significantly reduced latency

The new V-Series Iris panel connects to Clear-Com’s new high-density E-IPA card, which is natively AES-67 compliant. The card supports up to 64 Iris panels. The Iris panel also offers fully color configurable OLED displays, delivering the user label and port information in dimly lit areas or full daylight. While the V-series Iris panel will be optimized for a future accompanying version of Eclipse HX software when running over AES-67, it will still have IVC and 4-wire connections for backward compatibility with Eclipse frames running EHX 10.0 or earlier.

The V-Series Iris panel is ideal for facilities that are already converted to IP-based communications, enabling them to leverage the AES-67 based V-Series Iris panels to piggyback intercom on a network. Live production teams will also benefit from the full color OLED displays, allowing teams to quickly view and process channel information simply by the colors displayed, keeping their focus on the performance. 

In addition, production teams can take advantage of the flexibility offered by combining V-Series Iris panels and multiple E-IPA cards; for example, a large sporting events might use a single frame with many wireless/panel connections on the same intercom network to cover an entire stadium or other multi-region applications.
