NAB 2012: Tempest2400 MasterBelt goes down a storm

Clear-Com’s Tempest2400 MasterBelt digital wireless intercom offers all the features of the Tempest2400 rack-mount BaseStation in a wearable package. The Tempest2400 MasterBelt provides mobile broadcasters the ability to coordinate and communicate hands-free within the form of a Tempest2400 BeltStation. The MasterBelt can be paired with any standard Tempest2400 CP-222 two-channel BeltStation to create a full-featured two-channel system in the 2.4 GHz band. The MasterBelt itself also functions as a BeltStation allowing up to six full-duplex wireless users to be in communications. The MasterBelt Station and all Tempest BeltStations are protected by a durable, weather-resistant ABS co-polymer blend with a high performance polyurethane overmold. The MasterBelt is provided with a rechargeable Li-Polymer battery capable of up to eight hours of operation or can be powered by three Standard AA Alkaline batteries as backup, providing four hours of operation. “The Tempest2400 system has proven itself as the go-to communications solution for remote productions operating interference-free even when other wireless devices are in the same vicinity,” said Craig Frederickson, Clear-Com wireless product manager. “The MasterBelt is the latest development in the Tempest2400 line, giving broadcasters an even more flexible alternative for mobile productions, such as reality TV, sports side-line communications or ENG, where a stationary BaseStation is not desirable, feasible or optimal.” Because the MasterBelt can also function as a BeltStation, up to six full-duplex wireless users can be in communication in Normal mode. In Shared mode, an unlimited number of wireless users can listen while five have PTT capability. In Split mode, four wireless users are full-duplex while an unlimited number may listen.
