Trilogy introduces new Messenger intercom
Messenger is a matrix-based intercom that bridges the gap between the restrictions of two-wire party line systems and the cost and complexity full-blown professional broadcast systems. The entry-level Messenger system is simple but expandable and includes as standard features that are typically only found in more expensive systems.
Trilogy’s director of business development, Mark Ellis, says: “Messenger is easy to install, simple to use, cost effective and equally at home in small scale installations or highly demanding multi-studio applications. It is ideal for those who want a professional intercom system on a realistic budget.”
Messenger is comprised of an eight-port matrix running from a single power supply, with pre-stored configuration parameters and two operator panels. The matrix can easily be expanded by adding one or two eight-channel expansion boards to create a 24-port capacity. An additional interface board enables the system to support up to four channels of analogue telephone service. Also available is the option to include an in-built IP gateway with eight-channel DSP for network connectivity.
Ellis adds: “We spend a lot of time in the field, close to our customers – and theirs – to research and anticipate market requirements, and the need for a system like Messenger has been very apparent. What we’re particularly proud of is that Messenger is a precise fit for a demonstrable need. Its development draws directly from our history of providing professional communications systems that are fit for purpose, from small local productions to major networks.”
