Once upon a time, San Diego intercom maker HME maintained a small presence in the TV production world. But they took a sharp turn and began to dominate wireless intercom, especially in the fast food vertical. Chances are, if you have ever ordered a meal at a drive-through restaurant, you’ve communicated over an HME device. The company used its fortunes to merge with Clear Com, a traditional leader in advanced broadcast intercom solutions, with a big share of the market. They maintain a factory in the Poway industrial zone.
HME hosts SBE Chapter 36 at our July 17th meeting. Hosts John Kowalski and Simon Browne will discuss IP and wireless intercom systems for today’s broadcast workflow.
The meeting starts with food and drinks at 6:30 PM. HME will give us a tour of the factory where they design, test, and manufacture products for both the Clear-Com and HME product lines. Expect the tour and presentation to last under 90 minutes. Find HME at 14110 Stowe Drive in Poway.
SBE members and guests are welcome.
