Let’s talk about tour guide systems.
Tour guide systems usually consist of a microphone and a number of radio receivers. These are perfect for small events where only a small number of people need to receive interpretation or where delegates are ‘on the move’ rather than at a static event. Examples of the latter might be factory tours where the interpreter will accompany delegates as the move around a site. The interpreter will wear a small lightweight transmitter with attached microphone and the delegates will listen through an earpiece attached to an equally lightweight receiver. We have even deployed them to weddings where they have been used to provide simultaneous interpretation to non English speaking guests.
Of course, away from interpretation, they can be used for what the name suggests, tour guiding. An excellent way for the guide to be heard by their guests without having to raise their voice.
