Califone Upgrades PA419-02 Wireless PA System with Bluetooth Accessibility

Portable speaker includes enhanced features for optimal instruction delivery

San Fernando, Calif. (April 15, 2015) – As educators continue to deploy more sophisticated audio-visual technology in the classroom and outside, Califone International LLC, the premier manufacturer of quality audio technology and sound presentation solutions for schools, houses of worship, industry, institutions and presenter uses, has upgraded its portable PA419-02 wireless speaker with new wireless capabilities.

With a single unit being loud enough for three hundred people, the 30W PA419-02 is easier to play music from synced smartphones and other mobile devices through an industry-first addition of Bluetooth and NFC (near field communication) capabilities. Added connectivity can also be made with the inclusion of an SD card slot and a USB port to broadcast previously recorded content. A convenient 3.5mm port was also added for a wired connection to a smartphone, another industry first initially seen on the recent introduction of the upgraded PresentationPro.

Portability has been enhanced with a new lithium battery, which in addition to bringing a 15 percent weight reduction to the PA419-02, also holds a charge longer.

Classrooms are no longer limited to a single device. Students and educators are using multiple tools to deliver and receive instruction,” said Tim Ridgway, vice president of marketing for Califone. “With the PA419-02, devices with Bluetooth, NFC, USB or an SD card can connect and share audio with students for active and engaging lessons.

The PA419-02 comes standard with dual wireless mic receivers, enabling two wireless presenters and a wired presenter with a wired mic to speak into the PA all at the same time. It also includes a smaller, simplified remote control, built-in handle for carefree portability and a standard 1 3/8” pole mount for optimal tripod placement. Packages are available with a variety of wireless microphones.

The speaker is protected under a 2-year warranty for standard use. Learn more about the PA419-02 and other innovative products from Califone at califone.com.
