Lighting and sound in K12 schools

Whether it’s lecturing in a large classroom, a play or concert in the auditorium, or a football game on the athletic field, the proper lighting and sound equipment throughout a school can make a difference. Having the right technology, such as speakers, microphones, and lights in these environments can make for clearer communication, increased engagement, and an overall enhanced learning experience for teachers, students, and the school community.  

ME 36
This condenser microphone head is used with Sennheiser MZH goosenecks. Due to its small size and non-reflective paint, it can be inconspicuously placed and is suitable for lecterns and conference rooms. The ME 36 microphone’s tube also rotates for proper alignment to the speaker.

Extron Electronics
VoiceLift Microphone Systems
This system uses infrared signals to evenly distribute the teacher's voice throughout the classroom. Infrared signals do not pass through walls and are not subject to interference. The lightweight pendant microphone operates for an entire school day on a single, rechargeable AA battery. The system supports up to two microphones at a time for team teaching or student participation.
