Anaheim, California (June 25, 2013) – Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the new VLP 202 Compact Pendant Microphone for use with Extron VoiceLift systems. The small form factor makes the VLP 202 comfortable to wear on a lanyard or clipped to the instructor’s clothing. The VLP 202 is loaded with features, including a Power/Mute switch to silence the microphone for private conversations or when not in use, volume controls, and an auxiliary input jack for connecting additional audio devices like MP3 players. Signals from the VLP 202 are transmitted wirelessly to an IR receiver mounted on the ceiling or wall. The signal is then passed to an Extron PoleVault switcher where it is amplified and distributed to speakers placed throughout the classroom.

“Our VoiceLift System enables every student to hear the teacher’s voice more clearly,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “This new smaller, lighter microphone will make it even easier for teachers to be heard while moving freely around the classroom doing what they love most.”

The VLP 202 operates for an entire school day on a single, rechargeable AA battery. It is also a key component in the Extron Instant Alert system which allows the teacher to request assistance at the push of a button.
