Clear-ComHelixNet 3.0Clear-Com has announced HelixNet Version 3.0, a free software-only update to the HelixNet digital network partyline platform, which provides more communication channels for live performance and live production applications.

The update allows HelixNet to multiply its basic channel count by three, with a new offering of 12 channels per HMS-4X Main Station – previously, users had to link three HMS-4X Stations in order to achieve the same number of channels. This capability brings greater capacity and flexibility to productions that require more distinctive talk groups. An additional 12 channels can be added by purchasing a licence, effectively enabling a single HMS-4X to provide a total of 24 channels.

In order to support this expanded channel count, any combination of Main Stations or Remote Stations (HRM) can be configured to function as expansion key stations. With multiple devices acting as one system, users are able to address all users on HelixNet with a single headset/mic/loudspeaker. Pressing the All Talk key will affect all channels in a linked and expanded system.

HelixNet 3.0 also features a free browser-based software tool for the first time – Core Configuration Manager (CCM) enables easy online set-up and configuration of all HelixNet devices via the latest versions of all major browsers on Mac, PC and tablet platforms. CCM offers visual representation of all connected devices and functions, and the save/restore function allows easy duplication of systems. All configurations can be edited via the CCM software, or via the traditional menu system on the HelixNet Main Station.

‘Because HelixNet is based on the I.V.Core technologies, users can harness the advantages of an IP-based platform for easily linking and managing HelixNet without giving up the simplicity and familiarity of partyline functions,’ says John Wyckoff, Clear-Com Product Manager. ‘Best of all with this version, we are allowing customers to do so much more with less hardware.’

HelixNet 3.0 is expected to ship in Q3 2015.
