Jands supplied a demo unit of the Clear-Com Tempest wireless intercom system to St Kilda’s Australian National Memorial Theatre to test its reliability in a real theatre environment.
The Australian National Memorial Theatre is a not-for-profit 783-seat theatre and theatrical arts school that provides Australian and international students with affordable, world-class training in ballet, dance, drama and music theatre.
The theatre’s professional performance space is also available for community, educational and professional organisations at favourable rates, and operates with a minimal technical crew, necessitating the installation of a reliable wireless communications system.
Mick Crozier, production manager and head technician at the venue explained that communicating with the two technicians in the middle of performances was becoming a problem. Two-way radios were found too confusing and uncomfortable.
Requiring a system that would integrate with their existing communications equipment, Mick zeroed in on the Clear-Com Tempest2400 after considering several professional wireless intercom systems.
The Clear-Com Tempest2400 wireless intercom system offers the convenience of untethered communication for mobile users, while providing the power, flexibility and audio quality of wired systems.
Jands sent a demo unit, which was set up in just 20 minutes. The theatre technicians found the system very user-friendly and reliable in operation. The Clear-Com Tempest2400 wireless intercom system offers very good coverage in spite of the thick concrete walls at the venue, enabling effective communication between the staff.
Clear-Com Tempest2400 offers multiple modes of operations with each mode providing varying levels of communication flexibility and user capacity. An unlimited number of users is possible in split and shared modes. In normal mode, up to 10 BaseStations and 5 full-duplex wireless BeltStations can operate on one system with no frequency coordination required.
