Voice Amplification Systems

Astronaut + Orbiter Commander

Complete Voice Amplification and Mixing Station

The Astronaut + Orbiter Commander voice amplification system was designed for the most flexibility when mixing multimedia and voice in the room. This is the perfect choice for customers that do not have audio sources already routed to the ceiling (usually via a projector). The mixer can accept up to 3 separate inputs for smartphones, laptops, or any other line-level source. The mixer can also be adapted to output to an assisted listening device or voice recording system.

Simple, lightweight design for all‐day use

The Orbiter weighs just 2 ounces and is super easy to use. Set the volume using the side button. Once set, the volume will save in memory. Turn the Orbiter on with one click of the back button. A green light will illuminate on the front. Press again for mute. Then to turn off, press down and hold for 2 seconds.

Back Button: On / Off / Mute

Side Button: Volume + / -

Mix multimedia with the Orbiter Commander

The Orbiter Commander acts a wireless receiver for the Orbiter microphone and a multimedia mixer. Simply connect a smartphone, laptop, or other device to one of three mixer inputs. Then, cable the receiver to an existing wallplate or directly to the Astronaut amplifier with the included 50' speaker cable. Overhead projector is not required but is common in many installations.

Robust wireless RF designed for multi-room proximity

The Orbiter's core wireless RF technology is designed to work in multi-room environments like schools. School districts around the USA faithfully use hundreds of Orbiter systems simultaneously within their buildings with no symptoms of wireless crosstalk or interference. District technologists can rest easy knowing there are no wireless channels to manage. And, each Orbiter transmitter and receiver is digitally paired and secure.

Designed for group listening

The success of the Astronaut stems from its core audio technology that delivers 360° omni-directional sound for even frequency balance across the room. Patented worldwide, one Astronaut system replaces the equivalent of up to 4 in-ceiling speakers, delivering the benefits of less hardware, less energy usage, and simplified installation.
