Digital Acoustics' New TCP/IP Intercom with Power over Ethernet (PoE)

The ii3 IP Intercom PoE draws power directly from the Ethernet network. Power-over-Ethernet eliminates the need to run power to the ii3 on a wired LAN allowing greater flexibility in locating the ii3 Intercoms and decreasing installation costs.

New TCP/IP Intercom with Power over Ethernet (PoE)

Digital Acoustics ii3 IP Intercom™ provides push -to -talk, point -to -multipoint communications

External power supplies are no longer required for the ii3 IP Intercom. The ii3 IP Intercom PoE, which draws its power directly from the Ethernet network, was announced today by Digital Acoustics Corporation, developers of award winning, patented technology products.
Power -over -Ethernet (PoE) or `Active Ethernet` eliminates the need to run 110/220 VAC power to ii3 IP Intercoms on a wired LAN. Using Power -over -Ethernet system installers need to run only a single CAT5 Ethernet cable that carries both power and data to each device. This allows greater flexibility in the locating of the ii3 Intercoms and significantly decreases installation costs.
The ii3 IP Intercom™ Series, with Talkmaster™ management software, are quick -to -install, scalable, highly configurable two -way intercom stations. The intercom delivers high quality audio over Ethernet, wireless and fiber in local or wide area networks.
Using the TCP/IP network for two -way audio is simplified by Digital Acoustics' TalkMaster™ PC Server Application. TalkMaster provides a central command and control solution with critical support tools to manage communications easily and to set up all products in the ii3 family.
"Our objective is to make digital audio available anywhere customers want it,` said Chris Coffin, executive vice president of Digital Acoustics. `we provide intercom integration products that are cost effective, easy to design -in and simple to use.`

In ii3 IP Intercom configurations, a standard PC handles all master station functions for a single intercom to hundreds of stations. TalkMaster manages the basic two -way audio, as well as advanced operations for waiting calls, storing messages, sending alerts and call transferring. Auto -detection and proprietary auto -latency insures reliable connections and crisp, clear digital -quality voice audio.
As an added feature, the ii3 Series provides `Direct Mode` communication enabling ii3 IP Intercom pairs to communicate directly without network server support or a host PC.
Typical installations include two -way audio upgrades to existing network camera stations, access control, security systems, intrusion detection systems, military command and control, checkpoint management, IT help desks, school classroom communications, remote audio relay, and more.
In a unique offering for the security industry, Digital Acoustics released the TalkMaster i/TalkX ™ Software Developer Kit (SDK). Designed specifically for ii3 IP Intercoms, iTalk/X provides programming language support forMicrosoft ActiveX, giving OEMs and integrators the ability to develop custom audio interfaces for video, monitoring stations and entry systems.
The ii3 IP Intercom Series, designed for security and industrial communications, include OEM plug -in cards, wall panels and desktop stations.
The ii3 IP Intercoms are available for under $335. Visit or contact Digital Acoustics Sales at (847) 604 -9256 for more information.
