Record Audio MPEG Player (RAMP)

MISSING IMAGEDesigned to address paging and mass communication needs, the RAMP™ (Record, Audio,Mpeg Player) offers the necessary features for a variety of audio announcement applications, ranging from public addresses to safety announcements.

  • Eight independent, randomly accessible messages are available through both local and remote control. Messages may be recorded directly to the RAMP, expediting the update process in environ­ments where messages change frequently. Continuous playback is available, allowing the operator to leave the application site while broadcasting. In addition, if more messaging is required, up to two twenty-five message modules can be added for a total of fifty-eight messages. The RAMP also incorporates the latest dynamic message length (DML) technology for increased memory efficiency.
