Why Choose Arcadia?

Wired and Wireless Integration

Integration of both wired and wireless partyline systems. The 1RU device provides 2-wire, 4-wire, SFP and GPIO connections allowing both analog and digital intercom capability including the full range of FreeSpeak® products (E1/IP TCVRs; 1.9, 2.4 and 5 GHz beltpacks), HelixNet® Wired Intercom (HRM-4X, HKB-2X, and HXII-BP), and Dante Audio Network Interfaces.

Flexible and Future-Proof

The Central Station allows the user to increase the number of ports to 128 – with port licenses available in increments of 16. As the need for greater capacity grows or a new feature is needed, field deployable Licensed Port Upgrades can be used to increase Arcadia’s intercom footprint.

IP Interoperability

With a multitude of third-party devices running on IP, the Central Station provides tremendous flexibility by allowing communication routes to Dante devices via 64 licensable ports.

Easy Setup and Monitoring

The system is configured through a redesigned Core Configuration Manager (CCM™) enabling rapid setup, configuration and monitoring. The intuitive user interface has a consistent design for a quick and simple means of configuring the Central Station with role-based beltpacks, including save and restore, text messaging, individual beltpack and group call signal and remote mic kill.

Performance Center Communications

A Performance Center could have multiple theaters, multiple dressing rooms, a carpentry area and additional the box office and administrative space. The Arcadia Central Station is a 1RU device that supports up to 32 beltpacks from all three FreeSpeak frequency bands. An additional 64 ports of Dante and AES67 can be added through a flexible port licensing system. The device also houses 2-wire and 4-wire ports to add analog intercom equipment and third-party devices. This scalability makes covering the entire Performance Center with a single device a reality.

Large Church Communications

A large church production team has to manage multiple pastors and speakers, singers, band members, mobile mics in the crowd and more. Allowing the production staff to move freely around different areas of the church while still in communication with the rest of the team provides a seamless and smooth live delivery. The flexibility of the Arcadia Central Station provides the team with a single 1RU device that powers multiple FreeSpeak frequency bands. The 2-wire connection points give new life to legacy analog systems like Encore. Featured Products: Arcadia Central Station FSE-BP50 FSE-TCVR-50 FSII-SPL FSII-TCVR FSII-BP MS-704
