Fall 2013 Trade Show Wrap-Up

In September and October, we were quite busy at many different trade shows! Clear-Com exhibited at the 135th AES Convention, IBC, and ITC, not to mention our presence at the First Choice Marketing A/V Show, the Alliance Tech Expo, Rocky Mountain AVX, the Wisconsin Broadcasters Clinic, and the Broadcast and Technology Expo.

If you had missed any of them, check out some of our highlights below!

IBC (Sept. 13th-17th / Amsterdam) 

A total of 52,974 attendees – conference delegates, exhibition visitors, exhibitors and press –  from over 170 countries came together at IBC 2013 to share knowledge, conduct valuable business and set the industry agenda. The show provided nearly everything you may need to know about electronic media and the  entertainment industry. Perhaps you knew that already, but did you know that Clear-Com's partyline and matrix intercoms have been used for IBC TV News for years?

Also, while at the show, Clear-Com (Stand 10.D29) announced some new capabilities of the Eclipse HX as well as the latest enhancements to the Tempest2400. In fact, the new Tempest Line Extender won the “STAR” Award from the Editors of TV Technology Europe.
