Dynamic SoundField

A new era in classroom amplificationSoundfield

For the best possible learning experience children must be able to hear the teacher’s voice clearly in class, but unfortunately this is not always possible. Factors such as classroom noise, the distance between teacher and students, and challenging classroom acoustics can make understanding the teacher difficult, even for children with normal hearing.

For teachers meanwhile, noisy classrooms mean raising the voice to be heard, which in turn often leads to vocal hoarseness, pain and in the case of temporary voice loss, time off work.

These reasons are why soundfield technology was born - to clearly amplify the teacher’s voice and, in doing so, help students to hear and understand directions more easily. This in turn leads to improved student performance.

Proven soundfield benefits:

  • Children’s’ listening and learning skills improve
  • Teachers repeat directions and information less often
  • Amplification aids class instruction and management
  • Less vocal strain for teachers

Today’s problems

Despite soundfield’s benefits, there are very real issues associated with traditional soundfield systems. These range from in-class echoes and feedback to overly complex settings and incompatibility with FM systems for hearing impaired students.

This situation even led The Acoustical Society of America, in its position statement on sound amplification in the classroom, to state that sound amplification “increases rather than reduces overall classroom sound levels” and that “improperly maintained microphones and loudspeakers or poor user skills can cause even poorer speech communication than no amplification systems.
 

Today’s answerInspiro

Dynamic SoundField by Phonak ushers in a new era in classroom amplification, solving today’s soundfield issues by offering industry-leading sound performance, fully automated settings, and hassle-free integration with Phonak’s FM systems for hearing impaired children. Just plug it in, turn on and teach!

 The Dynamic SoundField system offers an array of benefits including:

  • Ease of use – the Dynamic SoundField system is easy to use, simply switch on and teach!
  • Greater engagement and improved behaviour of children – proven benefits for ALL children, not just hearing impaired.
  • Increased participation in class – non participating children become involved in classroom discussions using the ‘DynaMic.’
  • Less vocal strain on teachers – no need to raise voices, and less likely to need to repeat information and instructions.
  • Fully automated settings – with Dynamic SoundField teachers do not need to monitor or adjust frequency settings and volumes. The system automatically measures the classroom’s actual noise levels and optimises its own settings to provide optimal signal-to-noise ratios.
  • Portable – the system can be moved between classrooms as required when in
    freestanding mode.
  • 100% future proof – the system features USB connectors, through which firmware
    updates can be downloaded via an internet connected PC, so no need to replace it with a ‘newer’ version.
  • Unlimited use - use as many systems as you need in a school, with no interference and without having to change channels and frequencies.
  • FM compatible – usable as an FM transmitter (radio aid) for students with
    hearing aids.
  • Integrates with other multimedia equipment – the Dynamic SoundField system can also be used with interactive whiteboards and other multimedia devices, making other loudspeakers unnecessary and the system even more cost effective.
