Lab 100 - the hardware option

The reliable option where space is at a premium

This digital hardware language laboratory is an extremely versatile system which can be wall mounted, desk mounted or mobile to ensure maximum flexibility. The teacher has a PC with a software control interface and the students have a hardware user panel.

The versatile Sanako Lab 100 is small and discreet in design but powerful enough to meet the needs of Languages Departments who do not have access to a computer for every student. Although many institutions have a Lab 100 supporting their main ICT system, such as Sanako Study 1200, the Lab 100 is more than capable of delivering effective language teaching through more traditional methods on its own.

Lab 100 is an ideal tool to use for drill techniques, and some of its more advanced features make it a highly effective system for audio based teaching. Lab 100 is unique in its design incorporating all the features of a traditional cassette-based language laboratory but in a digital format. It also has the added benefits of low maintenance, requiring only one PC for the teacher with students using digital handsets.
