Altair unveils new-gen wireless intercom a decade on
Spanish intercom and pro audio manufacturer Altair has launched a next generation version of its HD wireless intercom system. This follows a decade of feedback from end users with regards to the system’s stability, hardware resistance, radio coverage and audio quality. When used with an HD base station, the WBP-210HD (single channel) and WBP-212HD (dual channel) belt-packs deliver enhanced clarity within a 100 Hz to 7KHz bandwidth.
Enhancements to the Compact series beltpacks include a convenient Mic button located on the upper part of the case, a stronger battery holder, Reset button, belt clip and stronger headset connector. The antennas are now located within the 160g case, whilst the battery status and ‘out of range’ indicator can be checked using the front panel LED bar graph. With a battery life of up to 10 hours in full duplex mode, the Compact beltpacks can operate between 50m-350m distance from the base station.
The Extreme Series of beltpacks feature more advanced features such as a built-in Bluetooth interface that promotes the use of Bluetooth wireless headsets, whilst maintaining all their previous characteristics including Twin Mode operation. Designed for robust use with a colour display screen, the antennas are once again built into the enclosures to provide a more comfortable fitting.
