TUALATIN, Ore.-- (BUSINESS WIRE
)--Lightspeed Technologies is pleased to introduce the latest in classroom audio solutions. REDCAT Media
strengthens the connection between teachers and students with no audio compromises and immediate results. The all-in-one system delivers high intelligibility of the teachers’ voice, full-range sound for movies and music, and even-distribution throughout the classroom. Elimination of installation and simplicity of design make REDCAT Media highly affordable and easy to adopt.
|Combining 2 speaker technologies makes all the difference
This innovative design uses hybrid speaker technology and
sophisticated cross-over circuitry to deliver its high quality audio.
REDCAT Media utilizes NXT™* flat-panel speaker technology (popularized
by the original REDCAT) and adds a
built-in woofer-style cone speaker.
A single NXT flat-panel speaker has a decisive advantage over other types of speakers because of its ability to enhance the voice frequency range, creating a high degree of speech intelligibility. The NXT speaker also provides excellent sound distribution throughout the classroom making it an ideal sound solution for the learning environment.
Adding a woofer-style cone speaker to REDCAT was a natural evolution of the product. “ As multimedia plays a bigger role in today’s classrooms, REDCAT would need to replicate the lower, richer sounds associated with videos, movies and music,” comments Tom Koller, VP of Research and Design for Lightspeed Technologies. “The addition of the cone speaker with our proprietary cross-over circuitry has produced a classroom audio system that maintains high speech intelligibility while adding exceptional low frequency sound for multimedia presentations.”
Total Classroom Audio Solution
All classroom technology can quickly be integrated using Lightspeed’s iR Media Connector
. Audio from laptops, iPods and DVDs is wirelessly transmitted to REDCAT Media to provide the total classroom audio solution.
Educators around the country have praised REDCAT as the quickest and most effective way to implement classroom audio. The new REDCAT Media is poised to become the number one selling classroom audio system in the industry.
“The overall appearance, performance and operation on the REDCAT Media is a 10!” Comments Marilyn Winter, Teacher at Harrisburg, SD who beta tested the new system.
Jeremy Long, a 7-8 grade Math Teacher in the same school district enthusiastically shared his experience with REDCAT Media. “I was very impressed with the overall sound quality of the new system. It was really clear and clean. The students were even amazed.”
“As soon as I turned [REDCAT Media] on I noticed how much better it sounded with music and movies,” comments Tessa Sims, a 1st grade teacher at Harrisburg SD. “The even distribution of sound throughout the classroom was great.”
An added benefit is the capability to wirelessly route any audio source through REDCAT Media. Laptops, CD players and iPods can be amplified quickly and easily using the optional iRMC Media Connector.
The new REDCAT Media classroom audio system is available for delivery in April 2010.
