Tour Guide Systems Products
Tour guide systems make it possible for your listeners to hear a speaker in a large, busy, or noisy room. You can run equipment that allows either one-way or two-way communication, depending on the interaction you need during a plant tour.
Primary Tour Guide System Parts
For clear communication, you need to correctly install all your tour guide equipment parts. Each system is a little different, but most of them have the following components:
- Transmitter – You need this to send your audio messages to other people. It takes information from the microphone and transmits it wirelessly to the listener’s receiver units.
- Receiver – This part of the unit receives the data from the transmitter and sends it to the headset or earphones to be heard by the user. Usually the receiver is in the earpiece or as a separate unit. Some receivers are carried on a belt.
- Microphone – Handheld mics often come with tour guide systems for enhanced sound during presentations. Another option is to have it built-in to a headset as a hands-free option.
- Headset or earphones – Worn on the head, this part of the system gets information from the receiver and plays the audio to the listener.
- Charging stations – Since the equipment is portable, it relies on battery power. A charging station ensures equipment will always remain ready to use - especially for unscheduled, unplanned tours.
How Tour Guide Equipment Enhances Speech and Listening
Different features of tour guide parts contribute to enhanced speech and listening. The following describes how the right communication system can make a difference.
For speakers – Tour Guide systems allow speakers to be heard clearly without having to shout. With this in mind, some systems enable guides to reach people at up to about 150 feet away, or even further with more advanced systems. Group leaders also can speak without interruption by participants or other sources. In addition, guides can hear themselves speak to confirm that their listeners will hear the message.
For listeners – Listeners will be able to hear and understand messages from the speaker, over background noise, and in a clear format. Hearing becomes as easy as if they were standing only a few feet away from the presenter.
For both speakers and listeners – It allows for convenient interactions, especially during tour sessions or break announcements. If a speaker asks the listeners a question, the listeners will be able to respond clearly and articulately.
Features that Make a Successful Plant Tour
The compatibility of Tour Guide systems components makes set-up easy. In addition, the compactness of tour guide systems makes carrying equipment less cumbersome. As a bonus, wireless equipment will prevent tripping and accidents. No attached cords also make moving from one room to the next simple.
Having a system that has 15 or more channels also helps you have successful tours. This will prevent interruption and cross talk by other groups.
Having a better way to talk and listen when giving tours will increase your chances of having a successful presentation. Easy to set up, high-quality tour guide systems will ensure you have a smooth tour without complication.
