Clear-Com Clear-Com has released the new Station-IC Virtual Desktop Client, a Mac and Windows-based software application that connects to Clear-Com’s Eclipse Digital intercom Matrix and coming soon, the LQ 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 favourite 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, theatres, 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.
“As workflows evolved over the last year and the demand increased for our Agent-IC mobile app, it only made sense to look at bringing this functionality to our user’s PC desktops,” remarks Kari Eythorsson, Product Manager for Clear-Com. “I’m especially pleased that we’re able to offer the Event licensing option for rental Partners and others who will benefit from that flexibility.”
Station-IC is available to download and try in demo mode from the Clear-Com website at www.clearcom.com/station-ic. 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.
