Clear-Com, which makes critical voice communication systems, named industry veteran Larry Estrin its new strategic technology specialist. As a result of the merger of HME's Pro Audio Division with Clear-Com, Estrin is now joining the Clear-Com team to promote the brand globally, build sales opportunities, and assist with product development and marketing activities, according to company officials
Estrin will be leveraging his knowledge and experience in the live sound and broadcast markets to help promote the Clear-Com brand to industry professionals, the company said. His involvement in many landmark events, such as the first multisatellite global broadcast of a major concert, live stereo broadcast of the Olympic Opening Ceremonies, stereo broadcasts of the Grammys and Academy Awards, as well as numerous other high-profile projects for the White House, NFL, and Disney, has earned him the status of being an educational and informational resource.
In addition to working with users, he will act as a resource to Clear-Com's product management department, taking an active role in the development of products, solutions, specific workflows, and framing existing capabilities of the company's products in ways to better solve the challenges of this industry. To date both Clear-Com and HME have received Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards. Clear-Com was recognized for the creation of The Belt Pack: Distributed Amplifier Systems in Live Production, and HME was awarded for the Development of the Wireless Intercom System.
