Induction Loop Systems
Are your presentations heard clearly by everyone in the audience?
Do you have individuals who require hearing assistance systems?
Loop systems are the more popular form of assistive hearing systems because they do not require individuals to wear specific equipment or ask to borrow communal devices, which would identify the user as different or defective. The hearing loop assists individuals, who use hearing aids that are equipped with t-coils, to hear sounds from a PA system transmitted directly to their hearing aid. How does it do this? It reduces and sometimes eliminates the background noise so they can hear what they are supposed to be hearing crystal clear.
How does the Induction Loop System work?
First, the spoken word is picked up by a microphone. That sound from the microphone is then sent through an amplifier. The amplifier sends the sound through the induction loop and wire. The induction loop and wire are placed around the perimeter of a room. The induction loop and wire act like an antenna, which sends the magnetic signal directly to the individual’s hearing aid.
Advantages of a Loop System?
- Virtually Unlimited Amount of Users
- More Personalized System
- Less Maintenance
- Clarity and Understanding
- Virtually Unlimited Amount of Users: There is no limit as to the number of users who can use the system at one time, which makes it optimal for places like a conference room
- Discrete: Users do not have to advertise their disability by asking to borrow headphones to hear
- More Personalized System: Listeners have the ability to use their own compatible hearing aids
- Less Maintenance: Businesses or venues do not have to purchase, maintain, sanitize or repair individual items like headphones or receivers, such as those used with infrared or FM systems. Once installed, multiple people can use your assistive hearing/loop system simultaneously at your facility
- Clarity & Understanding: Improvement in clarity and understanding is mutually beneficial to the business and the individuals; make sure that everyone is able to hear what you have to say
