frontrow.png

Front Row

Stand: 18
Juno is the most advanced soundfield system available.

It has been long established that making listening easier for children helps with their attention, aids their development and generally improves the soundscape in the class for the overall benefit of the students. Teachers often remark how a Juno enabled class is quieter with students responding better. Juno allows teachers to use their most important tool, their voice most effectively. Using a quieter, calmer voice often helps children focus and leads to reduced vocal strain for teachers.

Soundfield benefits all children but especially those with Special Educational Needs.

Previously to get the desired sound quality a relatively expensive and disruptive installation was required. Now Juno spreads the teacher’s voice evenly around a class from one attractive speaker cabinet which is installation free (although it can be wall mounted if required). Training and set-up takes a few minutes enabling a class to immediately benefit. Support staff are available should there be any on-going questions.
