Phonak has increased the functionality and flexibility of the successful Roger Earpiece launched in 2016 with an unlimited range extension facility. From July 2017 it will be possible to have full coverage wherever you are, including across multiple rooms, such as from green room to main stage.
The Roger technology uses the latest digital standard and operates on the license-free 2.4 GHz band. The wireless Roger communication system includes the tiny, virtually invisible Roger Earpiece comfortably hidden in the listener’s ear and different types of transmitter-repeater. Roger systems are ideal for people working in broadcasting and show business, who rely on seamless communication with directors, producers, and sound technicians. They are utterly discreet, easy to use and install, and offer unrivalled intelligibility.
Phonak transmitters and in-ear monitors are ideal for use in productions where communication is a challenge. Steve Morrow, sound producer of La La Land, is an advocate of the Roger technology having used it on the Oscar-winning film. Morrow has used Phonak’s in-ear monitors since 2001, and says they have always been a reliable tool: “The quality is great, the battery life is great on it, and they just work.”
Evert Dijkstra, CEO at Phonak Communications AG, commented, “The Roger Earpiece range extension is an exciting advance for our Roger Communications system as it really allows our users in the broadcasting world limitless flexibility on what they can achieve. The Roger Earpiece has already been making waves in today’s fast-paced media world, where it is vital to have the most reliable and effective equipment to help you do your job. We are delighted we have been able to enhance it even further in such a short space of time.”
