Wireless IR Microphone Operation

Redmike or Redmike VC

  • Ensure the Redcat is powered on.

    • Blue LED will glow.

  • Remove the microphone from the charging cradle and turn on.

  • Using magnetic lanyard, place microphone around neck, as shown.

  • While speaking in a normal voice, slowly increase the volume of the corresponding channel (A or B) on the Redcat. Note: It is recommended for the Teacher to use only the "A" channel microphone.

  • Once volume level is set, walk around the room and listen for audio drop-out and overall audio quality.

  • Fine-tuning the audio is accomplished by making minor adjustments to the Tone Control, located on the Redcat side panel.

  • If a second Redmike was purchased, repeat above steps for second microphone.

Redmike Share

  • Ensure the Redcat is powered on.

    • Blue LED will glow.

  • Disconnect microphone from its charging cable.

  • Turn on the Redmike Share by sliding the switch to the up position.

  • Grip the barrel in the center section. Note: Avoid covering the infrared emitters circling the base of the screened microphone element. This could interrupt signal transmission.

  • While speaking in a normal voice, slowly increase the volume of the B channel on the amplifier.

  • Once volume level is set, walk around the room and listen for audio drop-out and overall audio quality.

  • Fine-tuning the audio is accomplished by making minor adjustments to the Tone Control, located on the Redcat side panel

 

Note: Adjust the microphone audio level to be just above the ambient noise levels in the classroom. This equipment supplements the user's voice so they are able to speak in a conversational tone. Having the volume set too high will result in feedback and listener fatigue.
