  4. What's In The Box?

The RAT wireless hand control allows total freedom for the presenter to move around a studio and control the speed of the prompted text. If your production requires your talent to move while on air a wireless device enables you to do this. With a wide and selectable channel range the unit will not interfere with any other devices within your studio. Multiple RAT's can be used in the same location meaning your sports anchor, weather anchor and news anchor can all have a wireless device if required, making for a dynamic production where the talent does not have to remain static in one place.

Available in two versions depending on your location:
