Pliant Technologies to Showcase Newest CrewCom Wireless Intercom at NAB 2019

Newly Enhanced SmartBoom LITE headset, Drop-in Charger, Fiber Hub and FleXLR adapter will also be on display at NAB 2019.

Pliant Technologies will showcase the latest updates to its CrewCom wireless intercom system along with its newly enhanced SmartBoom LITE headset, Drop-in Charger, Fiber Hub and the new FlexLR connector at NAB 2019. 

The new CrewCom firmware provides multiple system improvements as well as the incorporation of new Oceania 900MHz models.

The SmartBoom LITE Headset (PHS-SB11L) features an improved dynamic noise-canceling microphone with wider frequency response, increased sensitivity, an enhanced speaker with wider frequency response, reduced distortion and an updated foam ear pad for added stability and comfort. The Drop-in Charger (PBT-RC-66) allows six Radio Packs (RPs) plus six additional batteries to charge in the same device for more effective battery management on location.

The CrewCom Fiber Hub (CHB-8F) expands system capabilities by allowing up to eight fiber connections through standard SFP-based connectors. 

The headsets are supplied with single mode fiber ports along with a single RJ-45 copper port to interface to existing CrewNetconnections. The addition of a new compact FleXLR gender adapter gives users the flexibility to connect headsets to devices with non-matching 4- and 5-pin XLRs, such as CrewCom radio packs or control units, while also allowing users to select from a larger range of compatible sets.
