WHEN INTELLIGIBILITY REALLY MATTERS: WASHINGTON PRO AUDIO TAKES NEUMANN UNDERGROUND FOR PUBLIC SAFETY

washington_metro.JPGWASHINGTON, D.C. – MARCH 2009: Despite the fact that the 86-station Washington Metro rapid transit system in Washington, D.C. serves the seat of U.S. government and would be an obvious target for a terrorist attack, the intelligibility of its paging system was seldom adequate even for routine announcements about train arrivals and schedule changes, let alone sufficient to direct panicked riders to safety in the event of an emergency. In a bold move away from the stereotypically squawky and distorted pages of yesterday, Washington Metro replaced all of its head-end paging-industry-standard announcement microphones with high-end, broadcast-quality Neumann TLM 103s. more
