FM and IR Systems
Hearing better in group settings
Not just about compliance, it’s good for business!
Personal FM & IR systems reduce background noise, improve clarity and reduce listening fatigue.
Legislation in Australia requires venues to be compliant with the Building Codes of Australia and the Disability Discrimination Act. Our team has over 30 years of experience designing and supplying hearing augmentation solutions that not only meet compliance requirements but are tailored to suit your needs.
What are they
Receiver Systems are like radio stations in that they require a transmitter, and every person wanting to listen requires a separate device to receive the signal. Their advantage is that they can be used by people with or without hearing aids by matching the attachment to suit the wearer. Receiving devices are distributed to the users and collected after the event.
FM or Radio Frequency Hearing Assistance Systems use a radio frequency signal that is sent by a transmitter connected to the sound system in your venue. This radio signal transmission can then be picked up by receivers worn by customers/patrons while they are attending the venue.
Customers simply wear a set of headphones that are attached to a receiver device to enjoy the signal from the sound system transmitter. For customers who might also wear hearing aids, a receiver loop worn around the neck can be used in place of the headphones that works with the telecoil setting in the hearing aids.
Infrared Hearing Assistance systems use light waves to transmit a sound signal within a venue. This technology keeps the sound/signal contained within the room/space. With these systems an Infrared signal is sent by a transmitter connected to the sound system in your venue. This radio signal transmission can then be picked up by receivers worn by customers/patrons while they are attending the venue.
