Pliant To Showcase Latest Update To CrewCom Wireless Intercom At IBC

Pliant Technologies will feature the latest firmware update for its CrewCom wireless intercom system along with its newly enhanced SmartBoom series of headsets at IBC 2019. 

Pliant will also show new accessory products including a Drop-in Charger, Fiber Hub and FleXLR gender adapter, which provide solutions for customers using legacy headsets with CrewCom or other four-pin devices.

The newly released CrewCom firmware update includes system improvements as well as the incorporation of new Oceania 900MHz models. The company has recently updated its SmartBoom LITE and PRO headsets to offer improved audio quality and comfort.

The newly enhanced SmartBoom LITE Single Ear Headset (PHS-SB11L) features an updated dynamic noise-canceling microphone with wider frequency response and increased sensitivity. The enhanced speaker has a wider frequency response and reduced distortion.

It also features an updated foam ear pad for added stability. SmartBoom PRO headsets, offered in both single (PHS-SB110) and dual-ear (PHS-SB210), are available in several terminations and feature a reduced mic housing enclosure and windscreen for maximum wind noise reduction.

The new 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 for a more efficient system deployment by allowing up to eight fiber connections using standard SFP-based connectivity supplied with single mode fiber ports along with a single RJ-45 copper port to interface to existing CrewNet connections.

The addition of a compact FleXLR gender adapter gives users the flexibility to connect headsets to devices with non-matching four- and five-pin XLRs, such as CrewCom radio packs or control units, while allowing customers to choose from a larger range of compatible headsets.
