Pliant Technologies is exhibiting CrewCom at Integrated Systems Europe 2017 (ISE, Booth 7-E223). “Since introducing CrewCom last year, we have received amazing responses from many of the industry’s top professionals that can’t wait to try our new intercom product,” says Pliant Technologies CEO and Founder Peter Amos. “They have been specifically drawn to the systems expandability, adaptability and versatility. CrewCom is an intuitive communications solution that can enhance any installation and is extremely cost effective, making it ideal for productions of all sizes.”

Pliant states that CrewCom is an entirely new, innovative approach to professional wireless intercoms, designed to handle almost any application from simple out-of-the-box solutions to large-scale designs for a range of installation projects, live sound, broadcast and industrial environments. It is a versatile communications solution built on a highly scalable platform in which a family of products utilizes a proprietary network.

Pliant designed a new proprietary network for CrewCom called CrewNet. This network coordinates and transports all system timing, audio, signaling, and controls. CrewNet can operate over standard Cat-5e (or greater) and single mode fiber lines, breaking the current barriers for wireless intercom range. In addition, CrewCom’s highly-intuitive graphical software called CrewWare provides for comprehensive offline configuration, online control and real-time monitoring of all system components. These new software tools augment CrewCom’s ease-of-use and flexible system scalability.

CrewCom wireless products are available in 2.4GHz and 900MHz (900MHz is limited to where this band is legal). Any combination of these frequency ranges may be simultaneously used on the same CrewCom system, giving the ability to easily put global-friendly, dependable RF coverage where needed, all while employing a consistent user interface throughout the system. This enables the system to easily adapt to the RF challenges facing production and entertainment professionals worldwide.

Every element of CrewCom is designed around a system architecture that offers a high density of users with an easily manageable infrastructure and lower cost per user than typically found in large-scale wireless installations. The CrewCom system consists of a range of CrewCom products that work together to enhance the capability of intercom system administrators, designers, integrators, and users.
