Clear-Com systems deliver a dynamic and engaging live event experience for PUBG Nations Cup Esports
When the PUBG Nations Cup, one of the biggest tournaments in esports, returned to a live audience format in June 2022, event producers One Up Solutions and Banana Culture were well‐equipped to deliver a dynamic experience. The two teams deployed a hybrid intercom network using the Clear‐Com® Eclipse® HX Pico Digital Matrix and FreeSpeak II® Digital Wireless systems for reliable, high‐quality and seamless audio communications among technical teams, stage crews and talent.
FreeSpeak transceivers were installed at key positions throughout the venue, allowing the technical teams to communicate with the control room or FOH using wireless belt packs whether they were inside or outside. The Eclipse HX Pico system was installed as the main matrix, with 21 V‐Series panels deployed across multiple zones including the main control room, Stage Left and Stage Right, OB rooms, live stream, tournament operations, and the front‐of‐house position. One Up linked the Eclipse to the audio console using a 4‐wire connection, which was also used to send intercom signals to the IFBs for talent, analysts, and cast as well as the radio devices used by camera staﬀ.
The FreeSpeak II wireless system was allocated between the broadcast production group and the FOH and director’s teams. One Up spread eight FreeSpeak II transceivers around the stage, in the main venue lobby, and at the FOH position, using 11 FreeSpeak II belt packs. One Up also configured the FreeSpeak II belt packs with a V‐Series user station panel to work with the FOH console for backup redundancy.
