Wireless Keypads Replace Hand-Raising

The Reply wireless group response system is joined by the new Reply DL and Reply PS systems.

Participants interact by responding to the instructor's questions with a wireless keypad that transmits responses via radio frequency to the system's computer-interfaced receiver. Software then processes, records, displays and reports this interactivity.

The Reply DL uses the same 12-key keypad as the base system but adds voice transmission via radio frequency, establishing greater group cohesiveness and assuring timely feedback.

Suited for meetings and distance learning environments where richer, more individualized responses are desired, the Reply PS features an alphanumeric keypad and easy-to-read 2-line x 24-character LCD display that permits audience members to express answers in their own words.

Reply PS also features 128K of memory that allows one to store and compare pre- and post-test results. This feature also lets the audience go from self-paced testing to group instruction without having to change seats, swap equipment or interrupt presentations. Fleetwood, Holland, MI, (800) 257-6390.
