Clear-Com’s Arcadia Central Station, the next-gen partyline workflows
Clear-Com’s new Arcadia Central Station is a next-generation scalable IP platform that integrates all wired and wireless partyline systems, including Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak family of digital wireless solutions and HelixNet Digital Partyline.
The system can license up to 96 IP ports in a single RU device, with further licensing add-ons anticipated in the future, making Arcadia the intercom centrepiece for a vast range of applications best served by partyline workflows.
Clear-Com also calls Arcadia “the next evolution in partyline workflows”, offering the combination of digital, analogue and AoIP intercom technologies into a single integrated system. It provides general connectivity to a wide range of Clear-Com endpoints through a mixture of 2-wire and 4-wire audio ports, together with third-party Dante and AES67 AoIP devices.
Moreover, Arcadia supports the full range of FreeSpeak digital wireless products, encompassing the 1.9 GHz, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, and the upcoming integration with the HelixNet wired digital partyline system, delivering architectural flexibility with simplicity for the end-user.
Bob Boster, President of Clear-Com, said, “Arcadia Central Station is essentially the universal translator, integrating all our partyline systems together in a single, compact 1RU package.
“With the flexibility and power of a licensing-based model, functionality will increase over time and eventually this central station will become the ultimate group communications hub.”
