Clear-Com Tempest2400 with Seamless Roaming/MasterBelt
Clear-Com has released the Tempest2400 with Seamless Roaming capability and Tempest2400 MasterBelt digital wireless intercom, bringing extended coverage options.
Target end-users for the new system include broadcasters working multi-venue sporting events and those requiring ultra-portable communications.
The Tempest2400 with Seamless Roaming is pitched at large venues separated by sizeable distances such as multi-studio complexes and sports arenas, Seamless Roaming gives broadcasters the ability to move freely and wirelessly from one coverage area to another without interference or dropout of intercom communication.
With the Seamless Roaming feature, BeltStation users can migrate between as many as 16 different Tempest2400 BaseStations (coverage areas or zones). This allows users to focus on critical production cues, rather than having to change the settings on wireless BeltStations when moving within a venue. Both Seamless Roaming and iSelect Roaming are available to accommodate virtually every application need.
Tempest2400 BaseStations are linked together with the newest ZSync (Zero Synchronisation) Technology. The ZSync Technology provides a zero-sync reference that coordinates the hopping patterns of all connected BaseStations every time the system is powered up, irrespective of random time variation in power-up sequences. This provides improved system performance and a seamless wireless experience. The
The Tempest2400 MasterBelt is intended for mobile productions, extending the facilities of the Tempest2400 rack-mount BaseStation to a compact, portable package. It can be paired with any standard Tempest2400 CP-222 two-channel BeltStation to create a full-featured two-channel system operating in 80MHz of spectrum in the 2.4GHz band. The MasterBelt itself also functions as a BeltStation, allowing communications between up to six full-duplex wireless users. As with all Tempest wireless systems, it does not interfere with traditional wireless microphone, IFB or in-ear monitor systems that operate in the UHF band.
Tempest BeltStations can operate in harsh weather conditions and are protected by a durable, weather-resistant ABS co-polymer blend with a high-performance polyurethane overmold. The MasterBelt includes a rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery capable of up to eight hours of operation or can be powered by three standard AA alkaline batteries as a backup, providing four hours of operations.
All of the Tempest2400 family of products are designed with Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, which uses a narrow signal band that is continually changing frequencies to burn through RF noise and interference. Due to the FHSS technology, the Tempest system does not compete with signals from other 2.4GHz wireless devices, minimising frequency coordination and enabling flawless performance. The system also features Transmission Voice Data Redundancy, which sends each packet of audio data twice on different frequencies and through different antennas, ensuring uninterrupted audio communications.
As with all Tempest systems, the Tempest2400 offers three different modes of operation –normal, shared and split. All modes are supported under the Seamless Roaming function. A single Tempest2400 in normal mode can support between one and five full-duplex wireless users who always need to speak on the intercom system. However, in split or shared mode, an unlimited number of users can monitor the conversation and share talk capability. A combination of Tempest systems operating in either normal or shared mode can co-exist in the same environment.
