University Cultural Centre at National University of Singapore upgrades communication system with Clear-Com

The University Cultural Centre (UCC) at the National University of Singapore features a 1,700-seater Hall and a 425-seater Theatre. The venue has upgraded its communication system and is now supported by Clear-Com FreeSpeak II digital wireless intercom and HelixNet digital network partyline.

Telly Hartanti, senior associate director, NUS Centre for the Arts, said: “The importance of a reliable and stable communications infrastructure for a performance venue cannot be emphasized enough. Our communications system needed a refresh so that we could ensure seamless operations for our increasingly complex technical needs.”

The new system will not only be connecting production teams to each other, but it will also connect various venue managers to the production team members. The added flexibility of FreeSpeak II’s multiple channels allows for the creation of separate communication groups, and HelixNet integration ensures quick setups, scalability, and intuitive workflows.

Hartanti said: “The system will be used by new hirers and visiting production teams, so it was imperative to keep it user-friendly with a low learning curve.” Ms. Hartanti said. “And the flyaway FreeSpeak kit is crucial when we need to quickly deploy comms for events which are held outside UCC.”

The system was facilitated by Clear-Com’s Singapore-based partner, Electronics & Engineering.
