It is the first product of its kind, offering in a single wireless device, a conference microphone system, polling, text messaging, smartcard identification, distributed PA and multiple audio channels. Together with an innovative and easy to use suite of applications, the IML Connector will make meetings of all sizes, lectures and seminars, in either fixed environments or in temporary set ups, more efficient and effective by creating dynamic participatory environments.
Technical specifications of the IML Connector include: a hyper-cardioid microphone, multi-channel audio for simultaneous interpretation and assisted listening, an integrated loudspeaker for distributed PA, QWERTY keyboard for faster texting, a roller ball allowing users to switch between texting, speaking and voting. The IML Connector has been developed on a new technology platform, allowing for future application development, high scalability and security.
