Classroom Behavior Problems Disappear with the OWI Inc. CRS -101 Infrared Wireless Microphone System

Compact, Wall-Mounted System Gives Every Student a Front Row Seat

Carson, Calif. -September 24, 2008 - - OWI Inc, a manufacturer of advanced audio equipment for AV integrators, commercial, industrial and residential markets, recently installed a CRS -101 Infrared Wireless Microphone System in Lisa Meza's English as a Second Language classroom at San Fernando Middle School in San Fernando, California. The results have been nothing short of miraculous.


The OWI CRS -101 System provides clear sound throughout the classroom even when the teacher is writing on the whiteboard with her back to the class. "With the wireless microphone I can easily keep all the student's attention focused on the lesson being taught, without raising my voice. As a result, classroom behavior problems have all but vanished. The classroom atmosphere is so peaceful now," said Lisa.

"I don't go home exhausted with a strained voice any more. The other teachers at San Fernando have noticed the positive change and keep coming by my classroom to see for themselves," she added. "My own children attend a school with amplified classrooms, so I was already aware of all the benefits. When I was offered the opportunity to test drive a CRS -101 Infrared Wireless Microphone System, I jumped at the chance. The installation was so simple -in less than an hour one installer had the entire system up and running."

The Infrared Wireless CRS 101 Microphone System is ideal for Classrooms, Boardrooms, Training Rooms and Hotel Meeting Rooms. The slim, fully lockable, wall mounted, infrared receiver/amplifier/mixer accepts three different line level inputs. Because the CRS -101 is wall -mounted, there are no freestanding or rack -mounted components to take up closet space or be knocked off a shelf, and no unsightly tangle of wires.

The CRS -101 System can simultaneously control two included infrared wireless microphones, and each device can adjust its volume by independent controls to obtain the best audio effects for each individual room layout. The CRS -101 System comes complete with two OWI ceiling speakers. Further sound customization can be achieved by adding two more optional OWI ceiling or surface mounted speakers. The complete system is attractively priced at $990.
