Technomad Introduces Ethernet Intercom System for Military and Security Applications
BOSTON, August 13, 2007 – Technomad Associates, LLC introduces its new Ethernet Intercom unit, a simple, networkable IP-based intercom system for robust, intelligible voice communications on military bases and within demanding security systems. The Technomad Ethernet Intercom is a 1RU system with a built-in loudspeaker, push-to-talk microphone, Ethernet interface, and auxiliary audio inputs and outputs. The Ethernet is ideal for everything from large-scale mass notification to basic control center-to-guard post intercom voice communications.
The Technomad Ethernet Intercom can be attached to an existing facility network and/or LAN infrastructure; multiple units are easily integrated to create a simple, robust and scalable communications network. A systems operator can set up audio streams to target devices in point-to-point or multipoint configurations using a simple Web interface. Target devices can include basic intercom stations at guard posts, in communication centers and in equipment rooms, or Technomad Military PA systems for alerting troops and personnel.
Technomad Military PA systems, available in Turnkey and Modular packages, come complete with weatherproof loudspeakers, a pre-wired amplifier, and a signal processing rack with microphones, CD/tape players, speaker stands and cables. The Technomad loudspeakers offer speech intelligibility and CD-quality audio far superior to traditional horn speaker systems that suffer from inherent distortion and narrow audio bandwidth. The rugged, durable systems are ideal for permanent and mobile installations on military bases and in high-security applications.
The Technomad Ethernet Intercom is an ideal way to extend to these systems, particularly to Modular Military PA systems which are designed to cover a wider territory. Technomad offers optional digital IP-based Link Kits for its Modular systems to form very large-area, networked PA systems (10 square miles or more) without complex programming. The Technomad Ethernet Intercom can join these PA system networks, allowing the user to alert staff in different areas of the base. An optional Zone Control function can be used in these situations to talk to specific targets.
The Ethernet Intercom can also receive audio streams from the PA system Audio Source Packs, allowing the Ethernet Intercom to play all-call or zoned audio alerts through its internal loudspeaker. This feature allows the Ethernet Intercom to function as an alerting system for guard posts, trailers, offices, and other compact spaces.
The Technomad Ethernet Intercom, now shipping, is available for purchase as part of a Technomad Military PA system or as a separate unit to plug into an existing system. It can be configured as a desktop system or a standard rack-mount unit, and offers a quick and simple set-up process.
Technomad Associates, LLC, founded in 1995, designs and manufactures loudspeaker systems for the professional audio and security / military technology / mass notification industries. The company invented the first reliable full-range military PA systems and now offers eight networkable models with range up to one mile, as well as the SuperConductor military MP3 player and Firefly ultra-lightweight PA system.
