Voice Amplification Systems

Astronaut + Orbiter Pod

Ceiling Mounted Voice Amplification System

The Astronaut + Orbiter Pod voice amplification system was designed with cost and flexibility in mind. Both the Astronaut and Orbiter Pod mount to the ceiling with ease. This is the perfect choice for customers that appreciate a simple installation while reserving the ability to move the Orbiter microphone to other rooms as needed. Easily connect multimedia from a nearby projector or direct connect sources like a computer, laptop, or DVD player.

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 + / -

Low cost wireless Orbiter Pod receiver

The Orbiter Pod simply mounts near and connects to the Astronaut speaker. Included in the package are a false ceiling mounting kit with screws, a short 3' speaker cable (3.5mm mini jack), and a triplex AC adapter to expand a 1 gang outlet to 2.

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.

Simple installation to the ceiling
