HEARING Loop

(INDUCTION Loop) Technology.

Hearing loops (also known as induction loops) are an assistive listening technology installed in millions of locations throughout the world, providing the accessibility many need to engage and communicate freely.

Devices such as hearing aids amplify all sounds.  In noisy environments, this can make it difficult for those living with hearing loss to distinguish the speech, music or conversation they are trying to hear.

Hearing loops improve communication by enabling users to hear sound sources directly by cutting out background noise.

HOW IT WORKS?

When signs indicate that a hearing loop system is installed, all a user needs to do is turn their hearing device to the ‘T’ position and they will be able to hear with clarity.

A hearing loop provides a direct link to the sound source such as a microphone or television so people with hearing loss can clearly hear what they are trying to listen to. Speech is picked up by a microphone, converted to a magnetic signal by an amplifier, and transmitted towards a user via a hearing loop aerial.

The magnetic signal is then picked up by a telecoil within a user’s hearing device and they will be able to hear with clarity.

Infrared systems.

INFRA_ICON.png

Our infrared systems use invisible light to carry audio signals wirelessly between a transmitter and receivers. Transmitters flood infrared light into venues so that the required area is covered, allowing users to pick up an audio signal using a range of compatible IR receivers.

 

These systems are ideal for venues where confidentiality is important or users need to move between areas with different sound sources.

Radio frequency systems.

Our radio frequency systems use wireless radio waves to transmit sound directly to listening options such as headphones or inductive neckloops.

 

This range includes portable as well as large-scale transmitters; large scale transmitters work across a wide array of environments, while portable transmitters enable tour guidance in educational or entertainment venues. Signals are transmitted through walls, glass partitions, ceilings or other obstacles.
