Oasis of the Seas, the largest and most elaborate cruise line of Royal Caribbean International, depends on Clear‐Com’s Eclipse‐Pico digital matrix, Encore partyline, HME DX200 and FreeSpeak wireless system for clear communications as well as efficient and wide collaboration during broadcast and live productions.
Oasis of the Seas, which is one of the world’s largest cruise ships, spans 16 decks and can carry over 6,000 guests along with 2,394 crew members. Not only was Oasis of the Seas the first of Royal Caribbean’s ships with an Aqua Theater and carousel, but it was the first to implement the idea of seven distinct themed areas. This impressive cruise line had more theaters than former builds and the physical size of each theater was larger and staffed by more personnel than ever before. Accordingly, their Entertainment and Technical Design Team wanted to maximize their communications technology so that guests can receive the very best on‐board entertainment.
The Clear-Com Intercom Solution
· UHF wireless beltpacks in former ship builds were subject to interference, hampering information exchange. Freespeak digital wireless beltpacks delivered clear audio quality for faster response to shifting demands.
· Production team must coordinate across multiple production venues. Since all intercoms through the ship are integrated to the Eclipse digital matrix, they can converse anywhere, enabling wider collaboration.
· The larger, highly sophisticated shows required robust systems with expanded functions. Feature-rich V-Series intercom panels and beltpacks with customized channels dramatically increased efficiency and production capability.
