Typical daily communications such as morning and afternoon announcements, safety drills, bell schedules, VoIP paging, and All Calls can become more effective and efficient with features like ambient noise sensing, pre-recorded messages, color-coded visual notifications, handsfree 2-way talkback, and more.
Products designed to live and automatically register on existing network infrastructure while accommodating future growth and a wide array of call platforms such as Cisco and Avaya, and 3rd party notification software including Singlewire’s InformaCast applications.
Allows for two-way, hands-free conversations which can assist teachers requesting assistance in their classroom or office staff providing student communications.
Monitor noise levels in areas such as hallways, gymnasiums, and cafeterias and automatically adjust the volume of audible communications to help ensure messages are heard.
Simple capabilities of traditional and VoIP phone systems, as well as Microsoft Teams and Zoom phones, can be expanded to deliver clear and concise audible and visual communications to specific zones or an entire campus.
Easily program common functions such as a school’s daily bell schedule, while also providing flexibility to support half-day, assembly day, teacher in-service workday schedules and more.
Authorized users can control specific aspects of the system from their personal or school issued mobile device reducing touch points where germs can be transferred from person to person.
Integration with fire, security, access control, and other safety systems can ensure emergency preparedness plans are executed by triggering a variety of automated communications providing calm and effective instructions during high stress situations such as lockdowns, fire alarms, severe weather, and medical emergencies.
Manage emergencies in high stress situations with automated, pre-programmed, event-specific communications that reduce potential for human error.
Emergency plans can be supported by automated communications, in a variety of formats, to dispatch local authorities, and notify both onsite and offsite administrators, parents, and staff.
Lockdown protocols for security breaches, gunshot detection, and intruders can require specific, discreet communications to inform internal staff and, when necessary, notify people offsite or outside the building not to enter.
Teachers respond to automated alerts that request confirmation as to whether their classroom is safe, which enables first responders to quickly focus their attention on the areas of immediate danger or those in need of care.
Voice lift systems, or “amplified classrooms,” use traditional audio components such as a microphone, amplifier, and speakers to amplify a teacher’s voice. These systems offer higher intelligibility and improve overall coverage so students can hear the instructor regardless of where they are seated.
A teacher can speak at normal levels and his/her voice will be distributed evenly throughout the classroom without strain, reducing the potential for related teacher absence.
Educators and administrators have an obligation to ensure classroom designs, teaching strategies, and technological aids accommodate students with disabilities.
Students in K12 classrooms spend 75% of their day involved in listening activities. Voice amplification provides better attention, comprehension, and retention, resulting in more successful learning.
When a teacher’s voice is heard at a consistent level and with ample room coverage, students are more attentive, more engaged, and less distracted.
Analog audio systems typically used for background music, live events, and public address in multi-purpose rooms, auditoriums, gymnasiums, cafetoriums, sports fields, and parking lots can be integrated with network based, VoIP, or digital audio systems as part of a unified communications ecosystem and can be leveraged during emergency and non-emergency situations.
Durability to withstand harsh weather in both hot and cold climates while also offering flexible mounting options for a variety of indoor and outdoor installation requirements.
Support school spirit and community pride by improving guest experiences and attendee satisfaction with great sounding, highly intelligible audio.
High output, wide dispersion, long throw audio systems with a variety of options for maximum coverage and pattern control.
Specialty systems in acoustically challenging locations should accommodate multiple uses, be easy to operate, and be budget friendly in order to be more widely accepted by staff and guest users.
