86 INC, an Indonesia-based rental company that specialises in communications equipment for broadcast, event productions and live shows, has tapped into Clear-Com’s bespoke solutions to expand its inventory.
To meet the growing complexities of communications networks, 86 INC has added Clear-Com’s HelixNetdigital network partyline and FreeSpeak II digital wireless intercom systems to its library.
The company has handled major projects in Indonesia from the country’s National Christmas Celebration, Dreamfields Festival, the IMF-WB Annual Meeting and the ASEAN Games to concerts for famous bands such as Metallica and BTS.
“Clear-Com offers a variety of flexible solutions for the communications needs of our clients that are becoming more complex,” said Dino Gonggalang, founder of 86 INC. “The addition of HelixNet and FreeSpeak II empowers us to address any application with complete confidence in ensuring sound results.”
HelixNet enhances familiar analogue partyline system concepts with additional operational and infrastructural flexibility. “We decided to expand to HelixNet as the product offers great flexibility without being difficult to use or set up,” said Dino. “For example, HelixNet completely eliminates ground loop hum, which has been a long-time request of our customers.”
FreeSpeak II is a five-channel, full-duplex wireless intercom solution that is the “obvious choice” for large-scale, complex designs or specialised applications. 86 INC provides support for some of the most technologically demanding live events in Indonesia; thus, it requires a robust intercom solution with the advanced capabilities of FreeSpeak II.
Both HelixNet and FreeSpeak II can also be easily integrated with existing products and are backwards-compatible with Clear-Com legacy products – a cost-effective advantage for many customers.
