The latest in a series of IP-focused product launches RTS ODIN is a major new addition to the portfolio

NBC Olympics selected RTS to
provide broadcast intercom
systems for its production of
the Winter Games

areas with reduced communications
needs. There are two versions, a
freestanding version, AVN-TB6, which
can be rackmounted with separate
rack plates, AVN-TB6RK, and a desktop
version in a smaller form factor with
an elegant sloped front, AVN-TB6D.
Both have mic and headset inputs,
+48V phantom power for the mic
input, headphone and speaker outputs
with volume control, and loudspeaker
mute and mic mute buttons.
The AVN-TB20AR & AVN-TB20AD
are two versions of the 20 station
intercom, rackmount (AVN-TB20AR)
and desktop (AVN-TB20AD), and
they share the same feature set as
the AVN-TB6 units and have more
station buttons allowing greater
communication for larger facilities.
They have 20 illuminated key-cap Talk
buttons plus Listen & Page buttons.
Unique to the 20 station units are a
Phone button for remote dialling and
control of external telephone hybrids
and a GPIO button for triggering
remote functions.
RTS has launched the ODIN OMNEO
digital intercom matrix. The latest
in an ongoing programme of IPfocused product launches, including
the ROAMEO DECT-based wireless
system and KP-Series keypanels, ODIN
is a major new addition to the RTS
portfolio.
ODIN
condenses
decades
of

experience and the latest RTS
innovations into a compact single
rack unit package that offers stateof-the-art IP technology along
with analogue connectivity. Where
previous-generation digital matrix
products were significantly larger
and more costly to own and operate,
ODIN's feature set and form factor
are designed to make a professional
matrix solution more accessible
and easier to use than ever before,
opening up the benefits of IP-based
communications for a wide range of
new markets and users of all levels.
In keeping with the RTS principles
of forward thinking and backwards
compatibility, ODIN can seamlessly
integrate into the most sophisticated,
large-scale
intercom
operations,
extending the value of the initial
investment, while also providing a path
for system expansion for smaller users
who want to upgrade existing RTS
systems to the latest technologies.
With connectors for OMNEO IP
technology, analogue two-wire and
four-wire, ODIN supports IP-based
ROAMEO wireless systems and KPSeries keypanels, and, as always,
analogue RTS legacy keypanels.
Dante-enabled OMNEO is standard on
RJ-45 connectors or is available using
optional optical fibre connectors. Users
can flexibly define ports to use any of
the available connector types. As a

user's capacity needs evolve, a single
ODIN can grow from the basic 16 ports
to a maximum of 128 ports; up to eight
ODIN units can be connected via an
optical Inter-Frame Link to create a
single matrix with up to 1024 ports.
Additional features include redundant
power supplies and five cooling
fans (two of which are redundant).
The unit's energy-efficient design
uses less than 50 watts of power,
minimising operating costs.
Clear-Com has released its allnew FreeSpeak II IP Transceiver
(IPT), one of two product debuts
based on Clear-Com's new IP
Platform solution, featuring AES67
compatibility, low-latency signal
distribution, high performance
audio routing with high audio
bandwidth. As a result, FreeSpeak
II wireless beltpacks can now be
addressed across a user's LAN.
Additional enhancements support a
higher density of users per transceiver
as well. Existing FreeSpeak II beltpacks
may be upgraded to work with the IPT
through a simple firmware update.
All transceivers are connected to an
AES67 IP-router and to the Eclipse HX
system fitted with Clear-Com's E-IPA
high density audio-and-intercom-over
IP system card. Each E-IPA card - also
native AES67 based - provides up
to 64 ports of IP connections which

effectively supports 64 IPTs. The IPT
Transceiver can be powered from
a PoE switch or local power source.
Direct fibre connection is also available
on each IPT.

Clear-Com showcased
its all-new FreeSpeak II IP
Transceiver (IPT) as a Technology
Demonstration at NAB 2018

"With the addition of the new IP
Transceivers, FreeSpeak II users now
have even more options with their
wireless solution than any other
system on the market," said Simon
Browne, Vice President of ClearCom. "Today, FreeSpeak II operates
on 1.9Ghz and 2.4GHz bands over
fibre connections. By allowing the
IP Transceivers to connect over AES
IP networks, we have enhanced
FreeSpeak II's flexibility, providing
an additional option for addressing
customers' ever-shifting intercom
requirements." Existing FreeSpeak
II beltpacks can easily be made
compatible with the IPT through a
simple firmware upgrade, eliminating
the need for costly replacements.
NAMM 50 years of service
award was presented by
NAMM President and CEO Joe Lamond
to Clear-Com President Bob Boster
