"Many credible studies have shown that students benefit from lifting the teacher's voice level in the classroom with increased student attention, improved speech recognition, lower distractions, and increased on-task behavior," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron Electronics. "Our new VoiceLift wireless microphone is easy to use and helps teachers with increased mobility and reduced vocal strain."
The microphone uses infrared signals for transmitting the teacher's voice to the receiver. Infrared signals do not pass through walls and are not subject to interference, offering clear advantages over systems that use radio frequency technology. Up to two microphones can be supported per classroom. Each microphone is powered by an included rechargeable 2500 mAH NiMH AA battery. 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. 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 3-year parts and labor warranty.
