Fairlawn, OH (July 1, 2016)—St. Hilary School, in Fairlawn, OH recently integrated 32 ATW-1301 System 10 PRO digital wireless systems from Audio-Technica into 32 classrooms as part of a larger overall classroom audio/video/computer integration.
The wireless systems included 32 ATW-1301 UniPak body-pack systems with AT831cW unidirectional lapel microphones, and two ATW-1302 handheld systems with handheld microphone/transmitters. The System 10 PRO wireless were installed and integrated by MjS Electronics of Richfield, OH.
“The System 10 units make a huge difference in the clarity of the classroom sound at the school,” observes Mark Schwenning, president and director of Engineering for MjS Electronics, noting that they address multiple issues in modern technology-driven pedagogy.” For instance, he says, “The System 10 PRO units allow the teachers to be heard clearly by all students, especially students with challenged hearing. They also help save teachers’ voices, because they can be heard easily without having to raise their voices.”
From an installation perspective, Schwenning says, “It is clearly beneficial to have a single system family of components that can be utilized throughout a campus with little or no need to do frequency coordination and planning. In fact, despite the extensive deployment of 2.4-MHz Wi-Fi throughout the school, they have experienced ‘zero interference issues’ with the System 10 PRO.”
