Clear-Com Releases Station-IC Virtual Desktop Client

Clear-Com has released the new Virtual Desktop Client, a Mac and Windows-based software application that connects to Clear-Com’s Digital intercom Matrix and coming soon, the Series of IP interface devices.

Station-IC users connect natively to a central intercom system that hosts essential services such as audio and control systems, as well as panels, beltpacks, and even two-way radios or endpoints from other intercom manufacturers. Bringing Agent-IC’s intuitive UI to the desktop, with the added benefit of more licensing options and a flexible application window, both local and remote users can benefit from high-quality audio with very low latency. Designed to be quick to deploy with a straightforward configuration process and minimal network configuration, users can be communicating in a matter of minutes.

The application features an adaptable UI that can be dynamically adjusted to meet the user’s desktop needs, effectively consolidating the user’s workstation. Normal and Full-Screen mode provides the user access to large buttons, suitable for either mouse or touchscreen operation, and a Compact mode floats non-intrusively over other active applications, providing direct access to favorite and reply keys without interrupting normal workflows.

Clear-Com offers Station-IC as both Event and Subscription licenses to better meet the needs of a broad range of applications. For production companies who need to ramp up their intercom instances for a one-off event or other users who need intercom capabilities for a shorter amount of time, the Event license is a cost-effective and flexible solution available in one-week or one-month increments. For Broadcast studios, theaters, and other users who will be using Station-IC as part of their everyday workflow, the annual Subscription license offers a lower cost-per-day and the ability to be transferred between computers as needed.

Station-IC is available to download and try in demo mode from the Clear-Com. The current release works with Eclipse HX digital matrix, and a subsequent release in Q2 2021 will allow the software to work with the LQ Series of IP interfaces.
