In all cases, audio routing within the Eclipse-HX
matrix is controlled by EHX, the systems configuration software.
Typically, EHX is used to configure FreeSpeak
beltpacks keys to Talk and Listen to Party-lines, which are then implemented
within the Eclipse-HX Matrix.
It is also possible to configure point to point
communications between Intercom Panels and FSII beltpacks by assigning Talk
If the Eclipse-HX System administrator requires remote
monitoring, any of the systems control interfaces (EHX, HCI or Production
Maestro Pro) can be used to route FSII audio with or without needing a button
to be pressed at the FS II beltpack itself.
The following are examples of possible ways, which the
Eclipse-HX system administrator can setup remote monitoring of a FS II beltpack
EHX/Panels screen to configure a panel with a listen key to a FS II Beltpack
EHX/Partyline screen to make a FS II a permanent talker to a Partyline
EHX/Crosspoint map screen to route a FS II Beltpack to a destination
EHX/Local Advanced Forced listen to route audio from a FS II beltpack
EHX/Routes to Route audio from a FS II beltpack
EHX/Fast Key Assignment to enable Listen assignment to FS II beltpacks
Maestro to create a route from a beltpack
Production Maestro or HCI to route beltpack to a Four-wire
For remote monitoring
to work, the belt packs headset microphone must not be muted locally (ref CC
300 and CC 400 microphone boom switch).
The EHX system
provides no warning to an operator that his microphone is live.
The Eclipse System
provides no easy way to limit Eavesdropping to only occur when an BP operator
is pressing a Talk Key
must not be used if operators are required to know when their microphone is
This solution relates
to all Eclipse-HX system software versions up to and including HX 8.5.
