Systems’ User-Friendly Interface, Expandability and Extensive Coverage Thrive in Live Production Applications
NEW YORK — ATD Audio Visual, a full-service rental and staging event production company with offices in New York City and Los Angeles, provides high-end AV solutions for a range of clients in the live event space. The company was looking to add a reliable intercom solution to its AV equipment inventory and found exactly what it needed with Pliant Technologies CrewCom® wireless intercom system.
A standout feature of the CrewCom system for ATD Audio Visual is its flexibility to meet the requirements of live productions of any size. “CrewCom has unlimited possibilities – you can expand it, you can split it into two separate systems; it does whatever you need it to do,” says Or Israel, president, ATD Audio Visual. “We can easily add more transceivers to extend coverage in a larger venue, and/or additional Radio Packs (RPs) to increase user counts. The system is extremely flexible and modular, and simply a joy to work with. In addition, the cost-effective price point makes the system even more attractive.”
Before testing out the Pliant system, ATD Audio Visual had purchased another manufacturer’s intercom, and was dissatisfied with the system’s functionality.
“As soon as we demoed CrewCom, I immediately returned the other system,” says Israel. “CrewCom checks off all the boxes when it comes to what we are looking for in a wireless intercom solution; and the competitive price point is a nice bonus. When we first tested out the system, we had one person stay inside the warehouse and another person walk four blocks away from the warehouse. The audio quality was crystal-clear – we were all really impressed with the system’s extensive range.”
Additionally, ATD Audio Visual has received unanimously positive feedback from its customers regarding the CrewCom system. “We rented out the Pliant system for various corporate-level conferences and high-profile events; everyone has been extremely happy with the intercom,” says Israel. “From a client standpoint, CrewCom is reliable and very easy to use. When we set the customer up with the system, they know how to use it intuitively. This has been a benefit and time-saver for us.”
To complete the intercom system, ATD Audio Visual offers Pliant’s updated line of SmartBoom LITE and PRO headsets. They feature enhanced audio quality as well as improved comfort and stability.
