The Network Intercom is designed for network audio communication over Ethernet or the Internet.
These Network Intercoms are easy to install using existing LAN wiring and have
dozens of applications. Our Digital Intercom technology offers many
advantages over analogue systems. The scalable design of these IP Ethernet
Intercoms allows for intercom installations from one intercom to hundreds of intercoms.
The Wall/Surface mount model is easy to install and designed to be screwed down
securely on any flat surface or wall.
IP Intercom systems can be designed with any combination of intercom endpoints:
Desktop Models, Wall/Surface Mount Models, or Paging Units, or
Call Station Models. There are two types of IP
Intercom systems, paired, or console based.
For paired systems, two endpoints can be configured as paired point-to-point units. These two intercoms can talk to
each other from anywhere in the world over the Internet. They are configured using the free TalkMaster™
LE Software running on a PC, and once set-up, the PC is removed, and the two endpoints will forever talk to each other
exclusively. You can change the configuration later by running TalkMaster LE
again. You can have an unlimited number of paired intercoms on the
same network - they
will not interfere with each other.
Console Based Systems:
A console based system, has one or more
PC Consoles, communicating with any number of endpoints. Different
software is needed to run a single-console system versus a
Single-console systems can be
implemented using TalkMaster LE Software that comes free with the purchase of any
A single-console systems utilize a PC running standard Talkmaster LE Software to
communicate with IP Intercom Endpoints. This is a "virtual" star
configuration, where all endpoints report to the console. The console can
communicate with any endpoint using the PC's speaker and microphone.
Using the Talkmaster GUI (Graphical User Interface), the console operator can
initiate or receive calls to/from endpoints. The operator is
notified of waiting calls, and customized "please wait" messages can be created
for calls waiting in queue. The console operator may also select groups of
intercoms to broadcast a message, or for paging. TalkMaster software
can be loaded on any number of PC's, so the Console can move from one PC to
another. In addition, a "live-standby" can be configured, so that console
control can be passed back and forth between two PC's with ease.
Multi-console systems require the
purchase and installation of TalkMaster™ Enterprise Edition (EE) software.
This advanced software allows for multiple, simultaneously active consoles.
A server is required to host the Talkmaster-EE Application. This
system features real-time call handling, using rules-based queue management.
Intercom queues are groups of intercoms that may be assigned to human console
operators acting in management teams. To assure service quality, TalkMaster-EE
incorporates a powerful set of rules-based controls to handle incoming call
counts, waiting time in queue and call priorities. By applying these rules, the
TalkMaster-EE Administrator is able to establish call response hierarchies for
virtually any organizational requirement.
Typical Desk Model Applications:
- Paired point-to-point with another desk model or
wall model (GC-IPIC-ESW)
- Paired with an external call station unit with relay (GC-IPIC-IP7-ST) to provide access control for a door or gate.
- Paired with a paging unit (GC-IPIC-IP7-SS8) for simple paging configuration
- Used as an end-station with a PC Master Console running TalkMaster
LE Software (point-to-multipoint). The PC Master Console can control and communicate with a single end-station intercom, to hundreds of intercoms in a larger installation.
