The Toa Electronics IR-802 Infrared Wireless Classroom System includes an IR tuner / mixer, an amplified speaker / IR sensor, an IR wireless pendent (teacher's) microphone, two rechargeable NiMH AA batteries (for IR-300M), and a dual mic charging station. This system features a ceiling-speaker with built-in IR (infrared) receiver and amplifier, and is designed to enhance educational performance and simplify installation in a typical 30.0 x 30.0’ (9.1 x 9.1m) classroom setting. It provides greater speech intelligibility, which studies have shown help boost student achievement in primary school education.
The system's integrated wide-dispersion speaker (with a built-in Class D amplifier) distributes uniform, quality sound throughout the classroom, without inconsistency or dead spots associated with multi-speaker systems.
The lightweight, IR wireless Teacher's microphone helps reduce physical and vocal fatigue during classes.
A compact, yet flexible IR tuner / mixer allows 2 IR wireless microphones to be used simultaneously in a given classroom while remaining totally isolated from other IR microphones used in adjacent classrooms. The transmission is immune to eavesdropping and interference from broadcast signals (such as digital television and dispatch radio) that can be frequently experienced with RF transmission.
The mixer also provides inputs for audio sources, such as DVD Players, PC audio, and MP3 players, and has an adjustable output for connecting other systems such as Assisted Listening, Recording and Remote Classroom. Mute Input allows connection of school paging signals for priority override of classroom audio. The IR tuner / mixer is compact enough to be mounted on a wall for convenient access or under the teacher's desk for security (Mount kit sold separately).
The speaker / amplifier / IR sensor connects to the tuner / amplifier via a single CAT5 cable, so installation and setup are fast and simple. The IR-802 system is UL 2043 rated for installation in air-handling plenum spaces.
