A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting, if the device is equipped with this option.

That way, deaf people or people with difficulties to hear are able to hear music transmitted through a PA / hi-fi system, conferences, music concert or seminars directly through their hearing aids, without the interference of surrounding noises.

At Le Camp, our seminar and banquet halls "René Guisan" and "Charles Béguin", located upstairs of our "Old Main" (Bâtiment Principal), are equipped with these kind of Audio induction loops for deaf or hearing impaired persons. As soon as the halls very own audio material is used, the induction loops are automatically activated. This equippement was certified and validated last february by the Forum Ecoute, which is an association for deaf and hearing impaired persons in french speaking part of Switzerland.

The hearing loop consists of the device that sends the signal (our "in house" audio system); an amplifier which processes the signal which is then sent through the final piece; the loop cable, a copper wire placed in the floor plate around the perimeter of the halls to act as an antenna that radiates the magnetic signal to the hearing aid. The position which guarantees the best receiving and hearing is the centre of this loop.

After the installation of different devices and aids for handicapped people, Le Camp is proud to be from now on equitable equipped to receive, host and entertain deaf and hearing impaired people.
