quiet classroom conditions, most teachers have enough natural volume
in their voice to communicate effectively with a standard sized
class. However, a number of acoustic factors (lively/noisy classes,
reverberant room conditions, ambient noise from equipment and outside,
hearing difficulties, etc.) can have a significant effect on clear,
effective teacher/pupil communication. More
inclusion of a Sound Field System in the classroom will raise the
teacher’s voice above this ambient noise level, to give even
voice coverage throughout the room and without the need to shout
or raise one’s voice. This will provide significant benefits
for teacher/pupil communication and understanding.
is a Sound Field System?
In it's most
simple form, a Sound Field Voice Reinforcement System consists of
the following components:
Wireless Microphone and Receiver
• Connection Cables
to the many differing conditions one may find within the classroom
(type of classroom, size, number of pupils, ambient noise level,
etc.), a Sound Field system can be designed and specified to give
the best results for a given application, using a different number
of speakers, different types of speakers, system positioning, inputs
for AV equipment, etc.
