Pliant Technologies will be presenting its new High Density mode for both its CrewCom and CrewCom CB2 wireless intercom systems at NAB 2022 (Booth C7118). High Density mode is a selectable mode of operation that greatly increases user densities.

For CrewCom, this new software-selectable mode supports up to 32 Radio Packs (RPs) on a single radio transceiver (RT) while dynamically allowing any four of the RPs to communicate in full-duplex across four available talk paths. For CB2, the High Density mode supports up to 16 radio packs (RPs) on a single base station. In addition, users of both systems will have the flexibility to simultaneously deploy “Normal” mode-enabled RPs and RTs (synced base stations for CB2) along with High Density mode-enabled hardware, providing adaptability for application-specific setups.

The latest member of the CrewCom family, the new full-duplex, install-friendly, and feature-packed CrewCom CB2, is an ideal solution for small to mid-level applications requiring a reliable, great-sounding wireless intercom with excellent RF coverage and range.
