Pliant Expands Its Professional Intercom Range With New CrewCom CB2

Adding to the success of its renowned CrewCom digital wireless intercom system, Pliant Technologies announces the CrewCom CB2 Professional Wireless Intercom system.

The new full-duplex, install-friendly and feature-packed CrewCom CB2 is an ideal solution for small to mid-level applications requiring a reliable, great sounding wireless intercom with excellent RF coverage and range.

Available in both 900MHz and 2.4GHz frequency options as well as 900MHz Oceania and 2.4GHz CE compliant models, the system includes the CrewCom CB2 basestation and up to six CRP-12 two-channel radio packs to create a powerful but economical wireless intercom system. This latest solution from Pliant provides customers with two intercom channels as well as interconnectivity to all industry standard two- and four-wire intercom systems.

“Ideal for a wide range of applications and budgets, the new CrewCom CB2 is perfect for customers who are looking for an intercom with more capabilities than our MicroCom products, but do not require roaming or the full feature set of our larger CrewCom system,” says Gary Rosen, Vice President of global sales for Pliant Technologies. “As a member of the CrewCom brand, CrewCom CB2 offers a lower cost per user with the excellent RF and audio quality of the CrewCom system—allowing customers to benefit from the exceptional performance of CrewCom technology, at a lower price point.”

Based on the same RF and audio technologies as Pliant’s successful CrewCom system, another feature of the CB2 is system expandability. Two CB2 basestations can be connected and the audio synced to create one system with up to 12 full-duplex users. Two separate CB2 systems can also be synced to ensure RF performance if they need to be co-located in the same RF area. The CB2 can also sync and be co-located in the same coverage area as an existing CrewCom system.

The new CrewCom CRP-12 radio packs feature the same batteries as CrewCom, making the batteries compatible with its 6+6 Drop-In radio pack and battery charger. The system is also compatible with Pliant’s complete line of SmartBoom headsets.

This affordable, out of the box wireless system boasts simple set up and its small, lightweight IP65-rated beltpacks are reliable, durable and easy to operate. Featuring 7K audio quality, CrewCom CB2 users are sure to experience crystal clear communication in a range of production environments such as theaters, houses of worship, and other small events.
