Pliant Technologies Announces Latest Updates To MicroCom XR Digital Wireless Intercom

by | May 20, 2021 | News, Production

Pliant Technologies has announced the addition of two new operating modes — Repeater Mode and Roam Mode — to its MicroCom XR digital wireless intercom system and has also unveiled the new MicroCom 900XR receiver with a 2-channel design that allows unlimited listen-only users to stay connected.

“We are excited to announce that new features are now shipping with the MicroCom XR wireless intercom system,” says Gary Rosen, Vice President of global sales for Pliant Technologies. “The new Repeater and Roam modes, as well as the MicroCom 900XR Receiver, have been specifically designed to enhance production workflows, ensuring uninterrupted, clear communication between users, all at a groundbreaking price point.”

The new Repeater Mode connects users working beyond the typical range by locating the master beltpack in a centralized location helping to overcome RF barriers. All MicroCom XR beltpacks now ship in Repeater Mode by default. MicroCom XR’s new Roam Mode further expands the coverage area of any MicroCom XR system. This mode links users spread throughout a venue by assigning a strategically located master pack as well as a secondary Submaster pack, designed to allow users to move more freely throughout a venue while staying connected through typical communication barriers such as walls and floors.

The new MicroCom 900XR receiver provides customers with a way to add unlimited listen-only users; they can listen in using the receiver’s built-in speaker or can connect an earpiece to listen to the audio privately and discreetly.

“Support for the new MicroCom XR Receiver is included in the new firmware, providing customers with easy-to-use, listen-only communication,” notes Austin Jackson, Product Manager for Pliant Technologies. “With the ability to connect unlimited listen-only users, the MicroCom 900XR Receiver allows production crews of any size to monitor conversations throughout an entire event or show, keeping all production aspects running smoothly when it matters most.”
