They seemed to like that one better. They liked the quality, and they liked the sound.

Schools, churches and other facilities, constantly strapped for funds, are confronted with the need for portable public address systems for ceremonies, shows, audio-visual presentations and other requirements that fulfill a variety of needs, fit their budgets and are easy to use.

"Today, sound systems are also a vital necessity in the classroom," says Summer Vyne, Team Supervisor with CCS Presentation Systems, a leading Scottsdale, Arizona, provider of PA and sound equipment. "A great deal of content now is being delivered via CD from publishers, instead of books. A lot of the curriculum now has sound to it." The portable PA system is the solution so teachers can share when the funds aren't available for each to have one installed in the room.

In recent years, portable public address systems technology has evolved to provide a serious alternative to installed sound systems. In many cases, a portable sound system will actually deliver clearer sound than an installed system because all of the components are designed to work together as a package. The amplifier, mixer, microphones and speakers are factory engineered to work together without distortion. In a permanent installation, the professional sound contractor attempts to achieve this balance of components with varying degrees of success.

Anchor Audio, based in Torrance, CA, is a manufacturer of a broad line of easy-to-use, high-quality durable portable sound system products for schools, churches, hotels, corporate, military and other institutions. The company has been specializing in portable public address systems products for close to 30 years, and has developed a range of systems to meet virtually every need from small devices for simple voice amplification to higher-end systems suitable for voice and music in larger settings.

Many permanent systems are built with separate components that must be purchased, including amplifiers, CD players, mixers, and speakers and the skilled labor to assemble and operate the system. But the portable public address systems are built to be all-inclusive of these components. "In most cases, different elements are already built in or listed as accessories. Anchor Audio has done a pretty good job of bundling systems in packages that make it easy for customers to select which is best for them," says Dave Johnson, Account Executive with Troxell Communications, a leading national audio/visual company and provider of sound equipment. "The packages also allow for expansion."

"The portable systems are much more functional and much easier to train people to use. The buttons are labeled for an individual, not a high-end engineer. Everybody and their brother can just turn it on and get it rocking," says Johnson.

Recently the K-12 schools in Vyne's area started putting mobile media carts together and needed a portable sound system solution. "We put a couple different systems in front of them, and they chose the Anchor system," she says. "They seemed to like that one better. They liked the quality, and they liked the sound."

Portable public address systems provide an economical, flexible, reliable and easy-to-use alternative to installed sound systems. High quality portable PA system solutions are becoming the product of choice for public address in the institutional marketplace.
