Clear-Com’s Eclipse Median digital matrix intercom and V-Series key-panels played an integral role at the recent diamond jubilee celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60 years on the English throne. Delta Sound, a UK-based provider of sound design, equipment rental and sales, and communication systems and services, employed three Eclipse Median intercoms and more than a dozen V-Series user control panels to facilitate fast, reliable communications between the event’s sound, lighting, pyrotechnics, security and stage-management production teams. Delta Sound installed a 112-port Clear-Com Eclipse Median with several V-Series panels in the Jubilee’s event control room. The system, which features eight built-in interface module slots for easy interfacing with third-party systems, allowed event workers on walkie-talkies to communicate with workers on the V-Series panels in the control room, adding greater efficiency to the overall production. Delta Sound deployed another Clear-Com Eclipse Median, along with a large number of V-Series control panels, for the Diamond Jubilee concert, which took place in front of Buckingham Palace. For the concert, Delta set up V-Series panels in front of the palace, on its roof and in its back garden. This allowed the sound, lighting, video and stage-management teams working the concert to coordinate their efforts. Workers used the V-Series panels to ensure visuals were projected on the palace during a set by the ska band Madness. A third Eclipse Median, along with a dozen V-Series panels, were used by security operations during the Royal Family’s procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace. “We found the Clear-Com system to be very straightforward to use, which is important when it comes to coordinating an event of this size,” said Phil Kidd, Delta Sound’s project and communications manager. “The Eclipse Median systems and V-Series panels were easy to set up and we didn’t have to spend much time training people to use them. We also liked the ease of interfacing with other communications systems, such as the walkie-talkies used along the route of the royal procession. Overall, the systems worked very well for us.” www.clearcom.com
