LAS VEGAS, JUNE 14, 2012 â”€ Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communication systems will feature the Tempest®2400 MasterBelt digital wireless intercom at InfoComm 2012 (Booth C10345). Ideal for smaller, more mobile applications, such as live outdoor productions or tour-guide setups, the Tempest2400 MasterBelt offers all the advanced features, reliability and robustness of the Tempest2400 rack-mount BaseStation, including the new version 3.0 features, in a compact, portable and easy-to-deploy package that can be conveniently worn on the hip.
The Tempest2400 MasterBelt provides users the ability to coordinate and communicate hands-free within the form of a Tempest2400 BeltStation. It can be paired with any standard Tempest2400 CP-222 two-channel BeltStation to create a full-featured two-channel system in the 2.4-GHz band. The MasterBelt itself also functions as a BeltStation, allowing communications between up to six full-duplex wireless users.
Designed to be comfortable, rugged and robust, the MasterBelt Station and all 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.
“The Tempest2400 system has proven itself as the â€˜go-to' communications solution for live productions, operating interference-free even when other wireless devices are in the same vicinity,” says Clear-Com Wireless Product Manager Craig Frederickson. “The MasterBelt is the latest development in the Tempest2400 line, giving users an even more flexible alternative for smaller mobile applications where a stationary BaseStation is not desirable, feasible or optimal, such as live outdoor theater productions, concerts or even as a tour-guide system.”
Tempest2400 operates in 80MHz of spectrum in the 2.4-GHz ISM frequency band. Tempest wireless systems do not interfere with traditional wireless microphone or in-ear monitor systems that operate in the UHF band. Because of its Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, the Tempest system does not compete with signals from other 2.4-GHz wireless devices, minimizing frequency coordination and enabling flawless performance. Further, with state-of-the-art Redundant Data Transmit (2xTX), which sends each packet of audio data twice on different frequencies, the system ensures uninterrupted audio communications.
Similar to all Tempest systems, the Tempest MasterBelt offers three modes of operations: normal, shared and split. Because the MasterBelt can also function as a BeltStation, up to six full-duplex wireless users can be in communication in normal mode. In shared mode, an unlimited number of wireless users can listen while five have PTT capability. In split mode, four wireless users can employ full-duplex talk while an unlimited number may listen. The “fifth user slot” is an unlimited single channel shared between the users with momentary-talk buttons only.
