Simultaneous Interpretation System for Government Events
For international conferences, where representatives from different nationalities participate, it is of greatest importance all participants to listen to a language they understand all the time. Therefore, it is mandatory to use a system allowing simultaneous (synchronous) interpretation to the floor language used. This is achieved by using professional for simultaneous interpretation, where the interpreters are accommodated. The translation of the different languages is distributed in such a way that each of the delegates could choose, by means of a special device, the language he/she understands.
Wich is the best Wireless Interpretation System for Conferences?
The most effective way of distribution of interpretation is through use of infrared (IR) system. It is wireless, which gives the delegates full freedom of movement. However, this means also full confidentiality of the information as the distributed signal cannot go outside the room. The new systems offer better than ever digital audio quality without any disturbances from the lighting in the room or other external sources of noise. This is also the only system, which is not affected by the safety systems of radio jamming used by the security services. This is what makes it the only system which could be used for meetings and events at highest level.
Benefits of an Infrared Interpretation System
The conference discussions often affect sensitive topics and confidential information is shared there. In such cases it is very important the audio broadcasting not to threaten the security of the information. As the infrared rays do not pass through opaque materials, from which the walls are built, the conference hall itself serves as a barrier for this type of rays and protects from unwanted interception. All other RF (radio) systems, offered to the market, do not cover this requirement and could be listened to remotely without the knowledge of the organizers, lecturers and delegates in the room.
Quality Of Sound
The digital infrared system offers significantly improved quality of sound. The better technology of compression and the higher signal/noise ratio lead to much bigger clarity of the accepted signal and high speech intelligibility as well as full resistance to disturbances from sunshine and the lighting in the room. Because of the greater distinctness, its use is less tiresome for the participants in case of a long use. This leads to increasing the capability of the delegates to preserve their concentration during prolonged conference meetings.
Freedom of Movement
By using the infrared system, the delegates receive significant freedom of movement within the frames of the conference hall. As the translation is spread in the air and the delegates are not physically connected to the system, they could move freely within the frames of the room, restricted only by its walls. The receivers and the earphones are light, easily portable and unobtrusive.
Are these systems legal to use for public US institutions and government?
Yes, our systems comply with all FCC and government guidelines for both RF emitting devices and import regulations.
How can we tell the difference between a system that has been granted FCC approval and one that hasn’t?
The simplest way would be to check for the FCC ID on the transmitter unit. It should be clearly displayed on a sticker or printed on the device itself. It’s also important to confirm that there is an actual FCC ID, which consists of an alphanumeric code and not just the FCC logo.
In our office building we use several different devices that emit FM signals, would there be any interference if we start using one of these systems as well?
Professional interpretation systems like the ones listed on this page work with a narrow range of frequencies that the FCC sets aside specifically for interpretation and assistive listening purposes. This range lies outside the regular commercial and civilian frequencies that other devices use, therefore there is no risk of interference.
You sell systems with both portable and desktop transmitters, can the portable one be used indoors as well?
Yes, you can use portable transmitters indoors and they will fulfill the same function as the desktop version. However, we strongly recommend that if you don’t need to use the transmitter outdoors where there may not be an electrical outlet available, you use a system with the desktop-based one. This is because it has several advantages and features that the portable version lacks, including more than three times the range and the possibility of the interpreter listening to the speaker’s voice though headphones thanks to the unique interpreting monitoring function of the T-500 stationary transmitter.
Are you a registered vendor with the US Government?
Yes, our company is registered in the federal government's System for Award Management (SAM) and we accept government-issued POs. We are also approved vendors with many different towns, municipalities, and districts. We offer competitive pricing and net payment terms. If your entity is in Florida, you can also send us your tax-exempt certificate and sales taxes will be waived. We do not charge sales taxes for orders billed and/or shipped outside of Florida.
