Wireless accessories maker Hollyland has released Solidcom M1 wireless intercom system for live events and video/Film/TV productions.
Hollyland’s Solidcom M1 is a new generation 1.9GHz full-duplex professional wireless intercom system. Furthermore, it supports up to 8 channel belt pack simultaneous communication plus cascaded connection of multiple additional devices.
In addition, the M1 is ready for set right out of the box and boasts powerful noise cancellation and broadcast-quality audio.
With a host of industry-first innovative features, Solidcom M1 is pitched as “the go-to wireless communications choice for micro-mid events with a capacity from 100 to 1000 guests, including church events, electronic field production, exhibitions, concerts, etc.”
Wireless Range up to 1300 ft with clear sound
According to Hollyland, their new Solidcom M1 scores an industry first with its ability to integrate a panel antenna into the base station. Thus providing an instant out-of-the-box communications solution at unobstructed venues, such as church events and concerts.
The built-in panel antenna alone supports a range of up to 1300ft (400m) in front of the base station and 160ft (50m) behind. Additionally, if users opt to attach the two included external FRP antennas, then the system can provide reliable 360 degrees transmission in a radius of about 985ft (300m). This is perfect for large-scale spaces and obstructed venues, including sports events and exhibitions.
Moreover, the Solidcom M1 also provides clear broadcast-level audio no matter how intrusive the background noise is, thanks to Hollyland’s own noise-cancellation algorithms, high 16KHz sampling rate, professional dynamic microphones, and super-wide 200Hz – 7KHz frequency response.
The included LEMO headsets feature side tone, reducing user fatigue and greatly improving voice intelligibility.
This means that your whole production team will be able to communicate unimpeded, with no confusion about the speaker’s identity or tone of voice, even during a rock concert.

Easy Single-Tap Grouping and Versatile Cascading
According to the manufacturer, the M1 offers an intuitive setup for grouping for team members such as lighting crew, camera crew, or PAs. To start, users need to select the number of each belt pack in the group. Up to three groups can be created and managed in seconds by using the base station, Hollyland app, or private webpage.
The base station can be cascade-connected to multiple sets of audio equipment, including most common legacy intercom systems from other manufacturers, simply by connecting them with a standard network cable or XLR cable.
Furthermore, there are four different interface connectors – 2W XLR, 4W RJ45, POE/LAN (Power Over Ethernet) power supply, and cascading interfaces.
Each standard Solidcom M1 comes with eight beltpacks, and there is also a package with four beltpacks for micro-sized events.
Simultaneous group calls for 16 people in three groups are possible with two cascaded M1 sets. With a standard network cable of 328ft (100m) for cascading, the M1 is perfect for almost any event.
Rugged beltpack and headset design
The beltpacks are rugged, yet lightweight and comfortable to hold, with a detachable, replaceable antenna to enhance durability and an HD LCD screen to show status at a glance.
Additionally, the three function buttons on the front of the belt pack are ergonomically designed and of different shapes to prevent accidental clicking, even in darkness and high-pressure situations.
Each Solidcom M1 set includes professional LEMO headsets with the intuitive microphone on/off control via raising or lowering the mic boom. The standard 3.5mm socket on the belt pack supports third-party headsets.
Dual Batteries for All Day Power
Each beltpack holds two removable Li-ion batteries, which can be charged independently in only 2.5 hours, and each battery provides up to 6 hours of runtime, ensuring uninterrupted operation.
Likewise, the base station has a dual Sony style NP-F battery plate, plus a POE power supply port, guaranteeing a continuous, uninterrupted power supply.
