Not just for silent fitness classes but for assistive listening too!
The AppAudio Assistive Listening System uses the power of Wi-Fi and smartphones to provide clear audio to those who need it. From the back-of-the-hall and overflow rooms it will reach the hard-of-hearing attendees.Everyone will have a better experience at a fraction of the cost of the old style assistive listening systems.
The system is easy to use: 1. Listeners download the free AppAudio App from www.app4audio.com 2. In Settings select the Wi-Fi name for the venue’s service. 3. In the App, tune into the streaming audio feed and, if appropriate, pick which language they want to hear.
Easy to set up.
Connect one (stereo) or two (mono) line-level audio sources using the cables and connectors provided.Typical audio sources are from microphones or line inputs via pre-amplifiers, audio mixers or TVs with audio outputs. Connect the AppAudio MAA2AW to the Local Area Network (LAN) or to a wireless router. As the unit streams it's signals to a router a cable connection is not required. Plug in the power supply, and the system is up and running.
How it works.
The system works by sending digital audio over wi-fi to Android and Apple smartphones. The system scales from a lobby to an auditorium, with the support of wi-fi access points. The MAA2-AW can support either one stereo or two mono audio streams. It is excellent for bilingual relays, since two languages can be broadcast at once. You won't have to buy a second transmitter - you listen to the one earbud with the language you understand.
The AppAudio MAA2-AW makes it possible to turn a smartphone into an Assistive Listening Device. Those with a mild hearing loss will find that their smartphone earbuds work fine.
There are many advantages to using Wi-Fi Audio from AppAudio. The lip sync is excellent - the delay is a small fraction of a syllable. Fidelity is CD-like. AppAudio has been working with this technology for more than six years. Their systems are robust in all sorts of network environments. Because Wi-Fi is universal, it works around the world without spectrum issues. It uses negligible Internet bandwidth and does not interfere with Internet access.
When connected to the internet you can use it for in-app marketing, social media and PDF info. You can include a welcome video, sliding banners, and event schedules within the app. An internet connection also allows for remote software updates. This antenna version streams the signal to the router without a need for a Cat. 5/6 cable run. Also available without the antenna. Both models are rack mountable to 10" wide IT Router Racks using the optional extra Rackmount Ears.
