Equipment is a very important part of a conference with simultaneous interpretation. High quality equipment is required in order to provide an impeccable service.
UHF bidule receivers for simultaneous interpreting
Simultanea was the Linguistic Partner for the simultaneous translation of the Institutional Conferences at IAB FORUM 2018
Why is quality equipment important?
The speakers’ audio has to reach the interpreting booth, where the interpreters listen via headphones and simultaneously translate the speech into a microphone, which in turn transmits the translation to the receivers worn by the audience. All of this requires special equipment – microphones, loudspeakers, booths, receivers, infrared transmission, etc. – as well as a qualified technician in attendance for the duration of the conference to ensure that the equipment works correctly, without interruption, unwanted noise or interference with any other electronic equipment.
