Overview

Planning

Sennheiser IR systems are ideal for single-channel systems for assistive listening or two-channel language translation systems. Care must be taken to consider the room's dimensions and layout (including balconies and side rooms).

Planning

Coverage

Consider an infrared emitter as a light source. Panels must be selected in the appropriate size and quantity as per the square footage of the room in which the system will be used. Sennheiser emitter panels all contain the ability to daisy chain multiple panels together to cover wide or odd-shaped rooms. Our emitter panels also feature automatic gain control so that there is no loss of signal in a multi-panel array or configuration.

Placement

Sennheiser offers the ability to mount emitters on a variety of ceiling or wall mounts. Smaller emitters such as the SZI30 can even be assembled in an array to create a longer throw or wider spread of the IR beam. When selecting an appropriate position for your emitters, keep in mind that they should be placed in a manner to provide even illumination throughout the room. They should be mounted high (generally 10-14 ft.) pointing down towards those wearing receivers. If emitters are placed on both sides of an altar they should be aimed diagonally across the room. Except in rare occasions, any number of panels can be placed in a room without concern of interference between panels.
