I have twice recently come across a 'wearable P/A system in use which would be a valuable dcevice at a group meeting I attend in a church hall. 1. A travel guide in Norway who spoke as he walked and the following crowd could hear every word, and recently at the Greenwich Planetarium where the lecturer as he moved[in the dark] the sound moved with him. In each case they appeared to wear a head boom mike and were wearing a 'Wallkman size device around their waist. As 1. was in the open streets of Bergan and the other moving around the the dark in the planetarium- I do not think they were a wireless devices. A quick search of the obvious places [Maplins] did not come up with anything Ideas anyone?
Thr church hall has its own P/A and the group has it own wireless set up- the problem is the speakers asre a permanent fixture high on the wall near the stage- intended obviously to work with the speaker[s] on stage. As soon the speake [s] work from the floor in the main- we are constantly beset with a feedback problem unless the talker is 'pinned' back to the stage and told not to move.
Do any of your group have hearing difficulties? They may need access to a loop system. Most church halls should have this installed and linked to their sound systems. It is something covered under the disability discrimination act.
