Caption Display - Systems

Depending on your requirements, Compusult has five models of the Closed Caption Display System available. All are complete, ready-to-run, remote systems. The varying feature is the size of the character height that determines the maximum viewing distance from the units.

All units are an ideal solution for the deaf and hearing impaired persons as well as noisy or very quiet settings such as museums, trade shows, airports, churches, exhibitions or hotels. The systems can be wall or table mounted making installation a breeze.

We also design and build custom systems. Call us with your requirements.
