@BC Theatre Guy Another post in support of Production Intercom / Pro Intercom. EVERYTHING they manufacture is 100% ClearCom compatible and always has been.several years ago I purchased a system from Production Intercom and was pretty happy. The belt packs were rock solid. The headsets reasonably comfortable, but not indestructible. The price was quite reasonable.
When we did a remodel the belt packs interfaced pretty seamlessly with a new clear com system.
Production Intercom went out of business but has been restarted with what appears to be the same equipment as pro Intercom http://prointercomllc.com/
Worth taking a look at. I have been happy.
You are correct. We don't build a wireless product and instead use one of adapters to interface with ListenTalk.
Hope it works out well for you. My review of the system in another post is pretty in-depth, and the only thing I can add is that, 18 months or so in, we have a talk button that's intermittent; everything else, even the batteries, is still purring like a kitten; it is the device in the theatre we have to eff around with the least.
yes very good recommandation about the channel EarTecThanks for the input. Lots to consider. We actually did try the one channel EarTec route and it has been surprisingly effective. I would recommend it to any small venue looking to add one wireless headset to their current wired system (our is clearcom) . It worked well through our whole building, very rarely dropping signal. And since the headset is the type sold with cordless phones I was able to pick up endless extra ones for virtually nothing and thrift shops. It does however limit us to one wireless and the design isn't indestructible by any means so it is time to upgrade.
The Clear-Com (HME) DX is the cheapest we usually specify.
