Over 15 years ago, Emil Matignon, one of Clear-Com’s application engineers, had the opportunity to advise a camel race venue in Australia on how to utilize Clear-Com’s RS-501 beltpacks, CC-85 headsets, and PS-232 power supply.
When the camels cross the finish line, the Finish Line Spectator needs to immediately communicate to the Public Address Announcer the winner of the camel race. However, the PA Announcer is among the noisy crowd and away from the Finish Line Spectator who is near the race track. To eliminate the communication gap between the two individuals, the camel race venue adopted Clear-Com’s RS-501 beltpacks, CC-85 headsets, and PS-232 power supply. They were utilized at the area near the race track as well as where the PA Announcer was situated. This allowed the Finish Line Spectator to clearly communicate to the PA Announcer the camel that won that race. The PA Announcer can then instantly broadcast the results to the crowd.
Not only was the PA Announcer, Finish Line Spectator, and crowd happy to immediately hear accurate results, but the winning camel and its rider was pleased to get the recognition that they deserved.
