There are 2 main types of Assisted Listening and Translation Systems: FM and Infrared.
FM systems, for most customers, offer the best combination of lower price, ease of use and versatility.
These FM systems include everything you need for assistive listening. For translation use, you may need to add a microphone (the TGS Tourguide systems include a mic, but the PPA systems do not).
Each system consists of a transmitter and a certain number of receivers. Some also include a carrying case and other accessories.
By buying a prepackaged system, you save money compared to buying the individual components.
The transmitters and receivers are covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Accessories are warrantied for 90 days.
If none of these systems offer the exact components you are looking for, you can build your own system using the Transmitters, Receivers and Accessories in the menu on the left. Or just give us a call and we'll help you design the system that is right for you.
