Wahsega Labs' InformaCast-Enabled Speakers Aid Tampa Bay Schools

Wahsega mass communication speakers in K12 schools

Singlewire Partner Helps K-12 Schools

Over the summer, schools in Tampa Bay reassessed their speaker and zone controller needs and installed Wahsega Labs’ Two-Classroom 2x2 Ceiling Speaker. These cost-effective speakers integrate with InformaCast to provide a secure learning environment.

The Two-Classroom 2x2 Ceiling Speaker features a two-way intercom with the ability to broadcast emergency alerts and control door locks from InformaCast. One Power-over-Ethernet run supports Wahsega speakers in two separate classrooms, conserving equipment and labor costs while reducing the amount of equipment to manage.

Simple configuration through the InformaCast server enabled immediate access to broadcast announcements. Multiple safety and audio features are also available, including InformaCast and SIP dual registration, integrated microphone, door lock relays for classroom safety, sound reinforcement, and advanced panic button functionality.

In addition, Tampa Bay schools utilize the Wahsega IP Paging Zone Controller with InformaCast and SIP for two line-level outputs that operate independently, broadcasting alerts and announcements to amplifiers in two different audio zones. Each output can play up to three simultaneous InformaCast audio broadcasts, allowing emergency alert messages to play out over music streams or school announcements.

Emergency Notification for K-12

InformaCast from Singlewire Software helps K-12 schools across the country share critical information through emergency notifications. Partners like Wahsega Labs help leverage devices that distribute this information throughout school buildings to reach everyone during a crisis. Speakers can utilize InformaCast for live, ad-hoc, prerecorded and text-to-speech audio messages. This helps spread information quickly, to keep people aware when a situation occurs, and share ongoing updates.
