Do we have to buy a rig for 3 screens or can we have a hand out like a walk-man? We almost never get asked for this. But one guy is asking. What do we do?

Mike,

We have a simple Williams rig. The transmitter plugs into a 1/4" out jack installed in our sound rack by our tech. This allows it to be moved and plugged into another system (we will move it occasionally to PA since we're just a one-screen.) If you're only getting one request, you could get the one system, and move it from screen to screen depending on his viewing choice. However, you may also find it more popular than you realize. We have 6 headset units, and there are times when they all get used at once now. We recently had to send our transmitter to the shop (some freak condensation problem) and have been getting non-stop calls from our customers as to when it will be returned. It's definitely a must-have for us.

Some theaters have a set up where the words will scroll backwards on a marquee box at the back of the theater, and the hearing impared use a mirror that attatches to the back of the seat in front of them, to read the words.
