A public address system, sometimes also referred to as PA system, electronically amplifies and distributes sound using an amplifier, microphone and loudspeakers. Such public address systems enable an orator or a performer to address a large group of listeners. The term public address system may also refer to the equipment constituted of a mixing console, loudspeakers and amplifiers. These public address systems integrated with mixing console are suitable for both, speech and music. The primary sound input sources are the microphones.
Manufacturers offer public address systems that use automated equipment or operators to select from multiple standard pre-recorded messages. These pre-recorded inputs are sent to signal routers and pre-amplifiers. The pre-amplified input signals are further sent to the amplifiers, and the control equipment monitors the speaker lines and amplifiers for fault, and then forwards the signals to the loudspeakers.
Public Address System Market: Drivers and Challenges
Availability of advanced hand-held microphones
Manufacturers are offering hand-held public address systems (microphones) that are compact in size, and thus, easy to carry and use in over-crowded public places. Hand-held microphones improve the understandability and apprehension pertaining to live public address system announcements in noisy and reverberant places. Such upgrades are estimated to propel the growth of the global public address system market during the forecast period.
Loudspeaker selection plays a major role in maximizing SNR
Proper selection of loudspeaker, based on sensitivity, size, location, directional aspects, quantity and orientation, plays a major role in maximizing the signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio of a public address system. This adds constraints pertaining to budgets, mounting point availability, acoustics and aesthetics of the public address system. Such factors play an important role at public places, such as airports, where the announcement broadcasted by a public address system are required to be at a level adequately above the ambient noise.
