ICON Application: Signal from Venue to Truck

Today's productions are becoming more complex as facilities need intercom connectivity between multiple locations. It is crucial that the production teams have a seamless connection, whether they are in the same building or in a different country. Clear-Com's ICON Connectivity Solutions help bridge the communication connections, regardless of distance, for any given situation.

Here's a real life example of where ICON can help:

A Clear-Com user asks, "I need to send audio and intercom signals from my venue to a recording truck in the parking lot. How do I make that happen?"
Optocore Interfaces

Answer: You can use Optocore interfaces and run these signals over a fiber connection from your venue to the truck. 

The advantages of using Optocore are that:
1. It is a one duplex fiber connection.
2. It's a secure connection.
3. It works well over long distances.
4. It's clean--in that the signal is nor converted or decoded in the transfer process.
