PRODUCTION Clear-Com covers solar eclipse

On 8 April 2024, North Americans gathered to watch the solar eclipse: a rare astronomical event that occurs once every few decades. Clear-Com’s solutions helped NBC KXAS and Telemundo KXTX cover the excitement through live broadcasts from Dallas, Texas. Clear-Com’s aptly named Eclipse HX Digital Matrix intercom system and Agent-IC mobile app played a pivotal role in providing eclipse coverage, allowing broadcasters to coordinate and communicate in real time – and not miss

a potentially once-in-a-lifetime event. Broadcasters were on the ground at Dallas’ Reunion Tower, witnessing the natural phenomenon alongside the general public, and feeding back to an off-site studio. “We utilised Clear-Com’s solutions to facilitate 28 live shots, seamlessly transmitting content back to our studios,” said Martin Dzurenko, engineer at NBC KXAS and Telemundo KXTX. “Clear-Com’s technology allowed us to capture the pure magic of this celestial event and share it with audiences worldwide.”
