PortaCom is a flexible, high performance wired intercom built smart and simple so it won't knock a hole in your budget. For the price of many single channel systems, PortaCom gives two channels, delivering powerful, low-noise, broadcast quality sound. The PortaCom system tailors to your needs as it is expandable to fit your situation. Two channels offers the advantage of extensive communication, so you won't get tangled in crosstalk. A director can cue cameras or talent on one channel and a lighting or sound crew on the other channel. Coaches on offense can call plays at the same time their defensive coaches are reviewing strategy, while the head coach communicates back & forth with both of them.
The main components include a power console, belt packs and headsets. Station-to-Station communication is made using standard microphone cable with 3-pin XLR connectors. The PC-100 power console has four outputs and can be expanded and configured in a variety of ways using the B3-100 branch boxes. Start with a basic two person system and expand step by step all the way up to a 20 person system - all running from a single AC power supply over standard mic cable.
PC-100 Power Console
The PC-100 has a power switch, an AC power input, and four 3-pin XLR output jacks. It can power up to 20 BP-100 belt packs over a combined 2,500 feet of cable.
BP-200 Belt Pack
The bottom of the BP-200 has a female 3-pin XLR female input (line) connector and 4-pin XLR male headset connector. The top features a volume control switch (for adjustment of the individual headset, not the system) and an A/B switch. Power is supplied via the line cable connected to the PC-100.
