    Audio Over Simpad - Linkbox Network

    We have moved our control out of the SimLab using an ad hoc network. We have a wireless router in the lab and a wireless access point in the control room 100 feet away. Control of the mannequins is fine, but the audio is not very good. The lapel mic/headset combo does not provide very clear audio, especially from the lapel mic through the Linkbox and back to the headset-wearing operator in the control room.


    Has anyone been able to find a decent workaround?

    WE were very disappointed by the quality of the sound over the inbuilt system, and the fact that there is a noticeable delay between things being spoken and heard


    In the end we used Sennheiser wireless sets (with a pillow speaker attached to the reciever and placed in the simulators neck), more expensive but efficient and reliable.

    Peter, can you be more specific in model numbers etc?  It is so difficult to hear 3G with 3 speaker buried under plastic/ skin and a wig for me!

    we record all of our simulations and put in A/V equipment that includes two way microphones.   We don't rely on any of our simulation vendors for the audio.  They have come a long way over the years; but, this has always worked best for us.
