Pryme Radio Unveils Latest Innovations For Public Safety
Pryme Radio Products recently unveiled its arsenal of newest technologies at the IWCE Las Vegas earlier this month. All of the innovations introduced at the show are brand new this year, including two new additions to its award winning PRYMEBLU line, a wireless PTT adapter and a number of solutions for high-noise environments.
The PRYMEBLU PTT wireless Bluetooth push-to-talk adapter that can either be handheld, worn on a lanyard, or secured to just about anything using a Velcro fastener (both lanyard and Velcro fastener come standard).
“Maybe you have a SWAT team member with a rifle in his hand and it’s inconvenient for hit to push the PTT switch attached to his radio; he wants to keep his hands on his weapon while keying up the radio that’s attached to his head,” posed Dave George, President of Pryme Radio Products. “All he needs is a PTT controller that he can easily attach to virtually anywhere on his weapon.”
In addition, Pryme has introduced a Bluetooth adapter for mobile 2-way radios. The PRYMEBLU BT-MOBILE adapter works with thousands of off-the-shelf consumer Bluetooth headsets, and stores paired connection to the wireless headset even if the radio is powered off or adapter is removed from the two-way radio.
“We’ve eliminated the impediments to adding Bluetooth to mobile radios, you don’t have to go to a dealer and have him drill holes in your radio and run wires through the back,” said George. “The Radio Operator can just plug in the adapter into a cigarette jack, plug it into the front of their radio and, using a standard Bluetooth headset, he/she is hands free, which is much safer.”
Pryme also introduced a number of solutions for high-noise and Hazmat environments. Pryme’s Bone Conduction wrap around headset features dual microphone elements that rest against the user’s temples, allowing them to transmit audio directly from vibrations below the skin using advanced bone conduction technology. “The new Pryme temple worn Bone Conducting headset offers a user-friendly solution to the problems presented by a high noise environment,” explained George. “In contrast with some of our past solutions (namely our Throat Mic system), the BC headset generates and picks up sound directly to/from the users skull without blocking the users ears, and if very easy to put on and take off.”
