Califone Introduces Megaphones to Support School Activities and Safety

Wired or Bluetooth Megaphones Support School Activities and Emergency Response Situations

San Fernando, Calif. (Oct. 15, 2013)Califone International, Inc., a leader in the design, development and manufacturing of school audiovisual and supplemental curriculum products, today announces the release of two new megaphones for use during school activities, as well as in emergency situations.

The PA-25RBT is the first megaphone to be outfitted with Bluetooth Wireless Technology, enabling it to transmit audio wirelessly from any mobile device that supports the Bluetooth Standard. The PA-25RX is the first megaphone to connect via a 3.5 mm auxiliary input for broadcasting audio from another wired audio source.

The new megaphones can be used on an athletic field, during a school trip, on tours or to address an outside assembly. The innovative audio connection on both megaphones enables previously recorded content to be played from any connected source (including mobile devices) out to a crowd.

In case of an emergency, the megaphones are designed so that important messages can be conveyed clearly up to a range of 1,250 feet, providing wide coverage on a typical school campus. The megaphones can also broadcast a siren wail to get people’s attention, and feature a detachable microphone that can record a ten-second message to be replayed at the touch of a button.

“The flexibility of these megaphones makes them ideal for use in and outside of school settings,” said Tim Ridgway, vice president of marketing for Califone. “They are handy for regular school activities, but are equally useful in an emergency situation where the clarity of the message can determine the outcome.”
