The ClearCom Arcadia Central Station is a scalable IP intercom platform which integrates analog wired and digital wireless partyline systems, including the full range of FreeSpeak products. With a mixture of 2-wire and 4-wire audio ports, the 1RU device serves as the centerpiece of a system that includes Clear-Com endpoints along with third-party Dante devices.
The Arcadia Central Station is an IP-based standalone 1RU device supporting wired and wireless endpoints with up to 96 total ports of connectivity. Flexible licensing of features - including ports - allows Arcadia to expand over time as needed, making it a future-proof investment. A key feature of Arcadia is its support for the entire FreeSpeak wireless family. Users can leverage a mixture of FreeSpeak Edge 5 GHz transceivers-beltpacks, FreeSpeak II 1.9 GHz E1 and IP transceivers-beltpacks, and FreeSpeak II 2.4 GHz E1 transceivers beltpacks. In total, the central station supports up to 32 beltpacks via up to 16 IPTs or FreeSpeak Edge transceivers, and up to 10 E1 transceivers.
Operation: Built for situations that require quick changes on the fly, Arcadia can be managed directly through two large high resolution TFT color touch screens by using four rotary encoders to quickly scroll through menus and shift pages. Beltpacks can be registered via the front USB port or Over-the-air while transceivers can be added from the front panel. A headset connection as well as a microphone and speaker on the front panel allows Arcadia to serve as a user station.
Configuration the system is configured through the Core Configuration Manager software, an integrated, browser-based software utility for enabling rapid setup, configuration and monitoring. The intuitive user interface has a consistent design for a quick and simple means of configuring the base station with role-based beltpacks, including save and restore, text messaging, individual beltpack and group call signal and remote mic kill.
