FreeSpeak II gives wireless freedom to National Gallery Singapore
SINGAPORE: A new Clear-Com FreeSpeak II wireless intercom system has been installed at the National Gallery Singapore, an art gallery located in the Civic District of Singapore. Providing wireless communications over a wide area, the FreeSpeak II system was selected for its capabilities and audio clarity following demonstrations from Clear-Com’s Hans Chia. It was purchased through systems integrator, Electro-Acoustics System Pte Ltd, with training and after sales support provided by Clear-Com.
‘We have several multi-purpose venues within the Gallery, and we often run different events during the week that require a different amount of wireless beltpacks,’ explained Roy Xu from the National Gallery Singapore. ‘Because the wireless intercom is a shared resource across venues, the system has to be portable, easy-to-use and efficient to setup for providing immediate coverage. The FreeSpeak II base station and its distributed antenna network fit the bill perfectly.’
National Gallery Singapore offers visitors the largest public collection of modern art in Singapore and South East Asia. The Gallery is housed in two iconic national monuments – the former Supreme Court and City Hall. Blending rich history with exciting modernity, the Gallery’s unique spaces are often the host to a variety of events, from conferences to product launches and cocktail receptions.
One of the biggest benefits that FreeSpeak II delivers to the Gallery is said to be the streamlining the of the setup process. It is now reportedly able to deploy the base station in a venue, pair the beltpacks over the air, get immediate coverage with the strategically-placed antennas, and be up-and-running in a matter of five to 10 minutes.
