Infrared systems

As with a loop system the input source might be microphones or a feed from your sound desk.  This signal then passes through a modulator, to the radiator, through the air and on to the head sets.

The modulator works in a similar way to a domestic radio.  It converts the input into an FM frequency modulation which means that the signal can then be transmitted through light.  The receiver converts the signal back into audio.
