'Soundfield' classroom amplification systems are enjoying growing success with school directors, teachers and parents

The DigiMaster 5000 classroom loudspeaker by Phonak has been awarded a 2011 red dot Product Design award.

A red dot jury of 36 distinguished design experts examined 4,433 entries from more than 60 nations this year – from Algeria to the United States - with the DigiMaster 5000 now officially considered by reddot to be "among the best of the design industry worldwide".

“'Soundfield' classroom amplification systems are enjoying growing success with school directors, teachers and parents as they learn more about the speech intelligibility and student performance benefits this technology offers,” said Alexander Zschokke, acting CEO of Phonak. “This red dot award once again shows how Phonak not only leads in technology but also in design, making Dynamic SoundField a stylish and aesthetically pleasing addition to any classroom.”

The DigiMaster’s red dot award means both key components of the Dynamic SoundField classroom amplification system are now red dot recognized, after the system's inspiro teacher transmitter was awarded a similar product design award following its launch in 2007.

The DigiMaster 5000 loudspeaker will now be featured at the red dot design museum, Germany and within the red dot Design Yearbook 2011/2012 (available in the coming months from http://www.red-dot.de).
