					                An Introduction to Simultaneous Interpretation Equipment




 Language interpretation equipment is used to facilitate simultaneous oral interpretation from one
language into another without interrupting the speakers or the listeners. This is achieved using a
wireless signal, either FM or infrared, to transmit the interpreter’s voice to headphones worn by
those that do not understand the main language spoken.

The key advantage of simultaneous interpretation over consecutive interpretation is that the
interpretation is performed real-time, hence it does not extend the time of the presentation or
event. The other form of interpretation, Consecutive interpretation, can almost double the length of
a presentation or speech. FM wireless interpretation is by far the widest used technology and the
easiest to set-up and operate. Since interpretation equipment transmits wirelessly, it can be used
in large venues, both indoor and outdoor, as well as in very small settings, like boardrooms or
conference rooms. Other types of technology used are Infrared and DSSS. Typically,
interpretation equipment consists of two main components: the transmitter and the receiver. The
receiver is wireless, battery operated, about the size of a small pocket radio, and will work on an
FM frequency range specially designated for Assistive Listening Devices (ALD). Therefore,
interference on the interpretation equipment from other FM frequencies is minimal.
