We are so confident that you will
love using the IR Swift + Classroom
Soundfield system that we are
offering UK schools a Free Trial!

for UKrial
scho
ols!
The Free Trial will be very easy for you... at a convenient time, we will
come to your school, set up the IR Swift+ and show a teacher how easy
it is to use. Setting up will usually just take around 15 minutes, all we
need is a mains socket at the back of the classroom to plug in to.
At the end of the 3 - 4 week trial period, assuming you like using the IR Swift+
and it has made a positive difference to the teaching and learning in your
classroom, then you can keep the system and pay the invoice – alternatively,
you can just send it back to us – it really is that simple!
To arrange a free trial for your school,
please just email our director Phil Boswell
phil@connevans.com and leave the rest to us!

Soundfield for teachers
Do you regularly have to raise your voice to be heard
Is your voice tired at the end of the day
Are the students at the back of the class inattentive
Would you like your students to get better results
A soundfield system from Connevans
can help you resolve these questions, and more!
Soundfield systems enhance the sound of your voice throughout
the classroom, so the students at the very back can hear clearly
and concentrate fully, as well as the students at the front.
Natural voice
Reduce classroom noise
Soundfield systems are specifically designed
to provide a nice natural sounding voice
tone – they are not PA systems!
Many classrooms are noisy and have poor
acoustics, making it difficult for students to
hear your voice. If they do not hear clearly,
they will find it hard to concentrate.
Reduced voice strain
Continually raising your
voice in class can be
stressful and can lead to
vocal health issues.
Less supply teaching
With reduced voice strain,
teacher sickness time is
reduced.
Relaxed learning
Soundfield
systems help
you through
the sound
barrier
Student understanding and
learning improves and
classroom control is easier,
creating a relaxed learning
environment.
League tables
Improved learning will lead
to improved results for
both students and school.
It’s easy
We come to you to show you how a soundfield
system can make a big difference for you.
Soundfield is spreading
It’s no surprise that more and more of the
UK’s educational professionals are singing
the praises of soundfield. Once you use
one, we know you’ll see what we mean!

Your
teaching
is important,
you need to
be heard
...clearly!

Phonak Roger Dynamic SoundField
The Phonak system uses unique digital Roger technology,
automatically adjusting to enhance comprehension, even in noisy
situations.
A particular strength of this system is the easy integration with
Radio Aid systems, especially the Phonak Dynamic FM and Roger
Ear Level Receivers, which helps hearing impaired students
integrate into the mainstream classroom
environment.
At its core, the Roger SoundField system comprises the
DigiMaster 5000 loudspeaker unit and Phonak’s inspiro teacher transmitter.
Up to 34 additional transmitters (either Roger inspiro or Roger DynaMic passaround
mics) can be used alongside the first Roger inspiro to widen the discussion. The
DigiMaster loudspeaker can be wall-mounted or positioned on a sturdy floor stand.
Key Features:
Fully automated settings – the system
measures the room’s actual noise levels and adjusts
the frequency and volume levels accordingly
Exclusive built-in FM and Roger compatibility
no re-broadcasting necessary for deaf students with Radio Aids
Intelligent frequency hopping preventing
interference between systems on the same site
Software updates available as new features
are released
Roger inspiro AudioHub can be added to play
one or two audio sources
Unique speaker design – 12 speakers in one!
Emits cylindrical sound waves giving good room
coverage and directionality
John says:
The Phonak Roger
system is great for
schools already using
Phonak Radio Aid
systems for their
deaf students.
