Do You Love Fireworks?

Do you love fireworks? I do. The warm summer air, the quality time with family, the sense of community. Nothing feels more like summer than venturing out to the park to watch fireworks. Even though I love fireworks, it’s important to remember that they present more than just a fire hazard, they can also damage your hearing.

Blog from the Booth: IR that Sounds Like RF at InfoComm 2015

If you think you know IR, think again. ListenIR sounds more like RF. Case in point: a Consultant just stopped by booth #959 for a chat with Cory Schaeffer and Peter Papageorge. As one who is devoted to RF products, this Consultant was a bit doubtful of our claims, but we switched on the LT-84 Transmitter/Radiator, had him take a little walkabout with one of our iDSP IR receivers, and then showed him the iDSP software suite and he was convinced. ListenIR offers an unparalleled IR experience.

What Audio Should You Feed to the Assistive Listening System?

When setting up an assistive listening system in your venue it is important to remember that speech is paramount. However, in many religious contexts and performing art venues, music will accompany the spoken word and is generally mixed through the sound system at a higher volume than the spoken word. In order to account for this, when setting up the assistive listening system, it is best to take a feed from the main (L/R or Mono) output of the console and run that signal through a compressor before sending it to the assistive listening transmitter.

I found that they were available in one of the coat check locations on the main floor. There is a sign for assistive listening devices availability above the coat check window.
