"Many credible studies have shown that students benefit from gently lifting the teacher's voice evenly throughout the classroom. This produces measurable increases in student achievement in many areas," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron Electronics. "Our new VoiceLift wireless microphone is easy to use and provides teachers with increased mobility and reduced vocal strain"
The VoiceLift Microphone uses powerful infrared signals for transmitting the teacher's voice to the receiver. Infrared signals do not pass through walls and are not subject to interference, providing clear advantages over systems that use radio frequency technology. Up to two microphones can be supported per classroom. Each microphone is powered by a single rechargeable AA battery that operates for an entire school day without recharging. A standard AA Alkaline battery may also be used.
The desktop charging station charges two microphones and protects them when not in use. The pendant microphone features easily accessible controls for volume and power/mute. In addition, the Instant Alert email notification capability enables the teacher to request assistance with the push of a button. An auxiliary input is also included for use with an MP3 player or other audio source, along with an auxiliary microphone input for use with an optional boom or lapel mic. The VoiceLift Microphone is designed and manufactured by Extron Electronics and includes a three-year parts and labor warranty
