To ensure you are literally speaking the same language at international events AV Department can supply and install Simultaneous Interpretation (SI) systems. These consist of interpreter booths, an infrared language transmission system and delegate headset receivers. We can also arrange for qualified and experienced conferencing interpreters.
A brief overview of the process:
At a conference an interpreter, seated in a sound booth, will listen to the spoken word in the room. This sound is known as the original sound. The interpreter then simultaneously interprets the original sound into their specialist language. A microphone in the booth broadcasts the interpreter’s output to the delegates.
The audio is broadcast via infrared light and is multi channel to allow multiple languages to be transmitted at the same time. Typically the delegates receiver is tuned to a channel on which only a specific language will be heard, be it the voice of the original speaker or that of an interpreter.
