RIBs, Small and Mid-size vessels

System Concept

The importance of clear and uninterrupted communication at sea can not be underestimated. In many cases it is what separates success from failure. Weather conditions, surrounding noise, distance to coworkers – all factors potentially making clear communication difficult or impossible.

The iriSound system combines your existing VHF/UHF radios with a State-Of–The-Art, waterproof intercom system enabling clear and trouble free communication under the most demanding conditions.

iriSound is a highly advanced audio unit that processes all sound signals to and from external units whether they are headsets or external radio units. The built-in intelligence allows for easy plug-and-play installation when used with other Iridium products – like the iriConnect for wireless headset communication. iriSound’s rugged, cast aluminum enclosure and the IP67-rated connectors offer a fully waterproof exterior construction designed specifically for the harsh conditions on board small and medium sized vessels, with freedom to install it either inside or outside.

The electronics design is based on the newest 24bit/48kHz Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, which offers superior sound quality and a world of software features like dynamic noise reduction, user controlled voice groups etc., some of which are offered as additional features.

iriSound is available in various configurations matching your specific needs, while allowing for future extensions of functionality should your requirements change. The basic unit offers 4 audio channels, which can be configured freely between wired/wireless headsets and external radios. The most advanced version offers 10 audio channels and an LCD display allowing for user configurable features.
