Early Television Museum

Museum Audio Tours

We have started installing devices in each area of the museum to provide a brief audio description for visitors. A box about 6" x 6" x 4" deep is mounted on the wall. The front is painted bright green for easy identification. Inside the box is a Micca solid state playback unit (the same as we use for video playback). The remote control of the Micca is attached to the front cover of the box, with a hole drilled in the box to allow the "OK" button to be pushed. A SD card contains a brief audio tour (3 to 4 minutes) of the area.

A small wired computer speaker will be placed on top of the boxes.
