Infra-Red

Infrared hearing systems can be used in public buildings as an alternative to an induction loop system in order for someone with impaired hearing to hear more effectively.

 

An infra-red transmitter is connected to the sound system to transmit the audio to any infra-red receivers nearby.

 

If wearing a hearing aid, an infra-red receiver is simply worn around the neck to produce a localised induction loop. However, these systems can also be used by people with 'normal' hearing in order to hear a soundtrack associated with a museum exhibit, for example. In this case a 'stethoset' receiver can be worn. 

 

 

In the same way that a television remote control needs to be in 'line of sight' of the television, the same is true of the transmitter and receiver in an infrared hearing system. Because of this, infra-red assitive hearing systems offer more privacyandsecurity than an induction loop, as there can be no 'overspill' into adjacent rooms / areas.

 

Infra-red is recommended for courtrooms, interview rooms, banks and doctors rooms because of the need for confidentiality, but they are also perfect for assisted hearing in buildings where induction loop cables would detract from the architecture or fabric of the building, such as in a church or building of historical interest.
