Four teaching spaces have wireless microphones installed.

These are: Waterfront WAD, Waterfront LT1, Waterfront LT2 and Atrium A001.

We are limited to the number of wireless microphones that can be used in the Waterfront building because of restrictions on the use of radio frequencies.

Wireless microphones come in two versions

Handheld

This is a one piece device.

Lapel (or lavalier)

This comprises of a body pack and a small microphone on a lead which is plugged in to the body pack.  The microphone can be attached with a small clip.  When this guide refers to lapel microphone it means a body pack with its wired microphone.

Currently provision in each space is:

WAD

Has two wireless receivers in use.

The pack from reception contains two hand held microphones and one lapel microphone.

The lapel microphone body pack has a pink label.  One handheld has a pink label and one a green label. 

As only two receivers are available in the room - ONLY ONE GREEN AND ONE PINK LABELLED MICROPHONE CAN BE USED AT THE SAME TIME - NOT TWO PINK

 

LT1

Has three wireless receivers in use.

The pack from reception contains two hand held microphones and one lapel microphone attached to a body pack.

LT2

Has one wireless receiver in use.

The pack from reception contains one hand held microphone and one lapel microphone.

Only one of them can be used at a time.  You choose which one.

A001

In the room are one hand held and one lapel.

Both can be used at the same time

 

 

The microphones are NOT interchangeable between rooms- please make sure you have the correct set for the theatre you are in.

The wireless microphone receivers are integrated into the AV desk in the room.

 

 

Lapel

Switching On and Off and using

Half way down the body-pack there are small buttons on either edge which when pressed, allow you to swing the front hatch open. You can now see an ‘ON/OFF’ button. Press this once to switch the unit on. The small screen should turn green and your voice should now be coming out of the sound system.

Switching Off

Press the ‘ON/OFF’ button for a few seconds until the small green screen switches off.

On the top of the transmitter pack there is a mute switch which will mute the audio.

Hand held

Switching On and Off and using.

On the bottom of the microphone, turn the selector round until the ON button is exposed. Press and HOLD the ON button until the green display on the side of the microphone lights up. Wait a few seconds for the microphone to register and then use it as normal. When it is in use, a receiver in the right hand desk cabinet should be lit green.
To switch the microphone off, press and HOLD the ON button again until the green display on the side of the microphone switches off.

Please note, there is NO VOLUME CONTROL for these microphones. The volume is preset on the entire re-enforcement system and cannot be changed.

Please do not touch any other controls on the bottom of the microphone all frequencies and channels have been preset to allow hassle free use- making changes to this will cause problems with the microphone’s connectivity.
