CONCEPT

The Hong Kong West Kowloon Cultural District installed a Clear-Com Eclipse HX-Median intercom matrix, a 64-port E-IPA IP interface card, an E-DANTE64 64-channel Dante interface card, and a 12-channel HelixNet digital main station with support for up to 72 beltpacks and headsets. In addition to the main theatre for the Chinese Opera, the Clear-Com system is also being used in the venue’s freespace and Lyrics Centre, making the most out of the Cultural District’s investment.

According to West Kowloon Representative, live performances require instant and accurate communications, so that cues happen exactly when they are supposed to happen.

In live theatre, you never get a second chance, Clear-Com was the best choice for the new theatre’s intercom system, delivering reliability, a high performance-to-cost ratio and an integrated platform. The item that impressed them the most was the E-IPA IP interface card. With this newly released card, they can install an IP transceiver at any time and in any location within a network-accessible area, further improving the quality of intercom within the production.

Once again, Clear-Com has proved excellent performance within a high-pressure environment. The Xiqu Centre based within the Hong Kong West Kowloon Cultural District selected Clear-Com for reliable communications between the Chinese Opera’s stage manager, lighting staff and audio staff. The theatre purchased the Clear-Com system through its Hong Kong partner, BDI Technology. Having installed an Eclipse HX-Median intercom matrix, a 54-port E-IPA IP Interface card and a 12-channel HelixNet digital main station with support for up to 72 beltpacks and headsets proving that the reliable system can handle multiple users under pressure.
