Why we exist
We are passionate about improving the listening and learning environment for every child. We believe this will strengthen the connection between teachers and students that is at the heart of learning.
Lightspeed excels at applying innovative technology to design intuitive, effective classroom audio solutions. These easy-to-use audio systems deliver optimum speech intelligibility, overcome classroom noise and provide crystal clear sound to all students regardless of where they may be seated or where the teacher may be standing. Teachers report reduced vocal fatigue, improved classroom management, and increased academic performance without changing curriculum or teaching methods.
Where we started
Established in 1990, Lightspeed Technologies, Inc. manufactured aviation headsets and later professional wireless microphones used in the entertainment industry. In 1994 Lightspeed introduced a line of high-quality classroom audio systems and made a total commitment to improve the learning environment for students.
Lightspeed continues investing in research and development to provide the best technology and most reliable products in the industry.
How our products make a difference
Our Redcat and Topcat products utilize a series of exciters that apply sound energy directly to our unique sound panels “exciting” the voice signal. Since the energy from the exciters is transferred to the surface of the flat panel, every point across the panel radiates the sound—distributing it evenly throughout the classroom. The high frequencies of the human voice, so easily lost amid classroom noise, come through clearly and intelligibly so every child hears (and understands!) every word.
What kind of service customers can expect
Lightspeed’s local classroom audio consultants are experienced professionals dedicated to improving the learning environment for all children and providing superior customer service. We provide teacher in-service, advance replacement, and a five-year warranty at no additional cost.
Our employees are committed to living out our core values every day. We believe that how you do something is as important as what you do.
