Comfort Contego HD Courtroom Listening System
Everyone has the Right to a Fair Hearing
ADA requirements and fairness doctrines stipulate that anyone attending a Court session should be able to hear clearly and participate fully. Reality however indicates otherwise. And you do not have to be hard of hearing to find the acoustics lacking.
Jurors, Defendants, Lawyers, Interpreters, Reporters and the Public
Poor acoustics and a crowded, noisy room can severely interfere with our rights to fully hear and understand proceedings at the Court. And with 1 in 10 Americans suffering from hearing loss, the need for effective sound amplification and noise reducing equipment exists in every courtroom.
Comfort Contego HD Courtroom Listening System is a High Definition digital wireless FM system that transmits encrypted over secure channels. The basic
system consists of a Transmitter that can send to one or more Receivers.
The lightweight units, each about 2 oz., have built-in zoom microphones that can be adjusted remotely from each receiver for maximum sound customization.
Comfort Contego, Made for the Hard of Hearing
Comfort Contego provides high definition digital sound over multiple secure channels. The HD sound is based on Comfort Audio?s unique digital signal processing technology.
It filters out background noise, and delivers crisp, audible sound from afar. Use with or without hearing aids. The Comfort Contego is FCC and CE approved and follows mandated guidelines by ADA to accommodate individuals with hearing problems.
With no wires or any other installation, the system is preeminently portable, within the courtroom, or the Court system. The portability, secure transmissions, multiple channels and additional transmitters and receivers presents a very flexible and expandable system for many needs in a courtroom.
Client - Attorney Confidentiality
A client-attorney team can have private conversations, while a second transmitter can provide access for others to the general proceedings in the room. Encrypted signals ensure no one can eavesdrop on the proceedings.
Any number of interpreters can translate in multiple languages, each transmitting on a separate, secure channel.
The Court Reporter's job is to be a quiet fly on the wall, and to accurately record every word of the proceedings. Poorly delivered comments and a noisy room can cause even those with normal hearing to miss key words. With the Comfort Contego, noise is filtered out, and speech becomes clear and audible.
