Our latest advanced wireless communication technology that not only provides natural voice tone and clarity, but also knows your home room!
Take control of your classroom and provide the best sound clarity
Education is evolving—from the school's physical construction and the layout of the class to the technology stack in the class and online learning needs. We created ELEVATE to meet the changing needs of the modern, connected classroom. ELEVATE powers our new Action! microphone to help effortlessly deliver clear instruction and control educational technology. Using multiple transmission technologies like DECT and IR, ELEVATE unlocks capabilities not found in any other system.

Elevate Teacher Voices
ELEVATE continues the FrontRow mission of delivering best-of-class, highly intelligible audio that enhances teaching and learning. The new teacher Action! microphone, powered by Elevate and optimized with our OptiVoice+ technology, brings the proven benefits of teacher voice enhancement to new heights. Every soft consonant or resounding vowel sound can be clearly heard from anywhere in the room or online.
Elevate Student Engagement, Equity, & Access
Elevating a teacher’s voice benefits all students, especially students who are special needs, English language learners, or using assistive listening devices (ALD). Instruction that can be clearly heard promotes engagement, equity, and accessibility to students wherever they are learning.
Students are more likely to participate when their voices are elevated as well. The Bravo! microphone ensures that a speaking student can be heard by their fellow learners in the classroom and online. The student microphone is a great tool to engage students and build their public speaking confidence.

Elevate Teacher Mobility
Instructors can move freely and control technology easily throughout the classroom with Elevate's Action! microphone. With Adapto+ feedback suppression and audio controls—like Solo to mute all audio sources and PrioriTeach+ to automatically lower audio sources when a teacher speaks—teachers can seamlessly conduct lessons from anywhere in the room. ELEVATE also features PrivaSee to automatically turn off the Action! microphone when a teacher steps out of the classroom, so hallway conversations—and any sounds outside the classroom—stay outside the classroom!
Elevate Campus Connectivity & Safety
ELEVATE extends beyond the classroom. Systems with ELEVATE are ready for online learning and can integrate with popular video conferencing solutions. With our Class2Home Kit—a simple connection between an ELEVATE system and a teacher’s computer—the superior audio quality possible is streamed for online learners. When paired with FrontRow Conductor, Elevate-based systems can be used for school-wide communications.
To further meet connectivity and safety needs, the Action! microphone has a dedicated alert button and “action buttons” that are programmable. They can be programmed to do anything from calling the office to activating a classroom display. The possibilities are countless.

Elevate Your Campus
ELEVATE was purpose-designed to make it easy for schools to communicate, even in high-density education environments. Up to a hundred ELEVATE systems can operate in the same building without interruptions or crosstalk. ELEVATE employs technology that allows interference-free operation up to 100 meters and can be used in any type of classroom construction—from traditional designs to glass-walled modern architecture.
Elevate - System Components
Simply put, the Action! microphone is a powerful teacher microphone, thanks to next-generation FrontRow technology. Teachers can teach, move around, and control technology seamlessly and worry-free. Adapto+ provides next-level feedback suppression and OptiVoice+ enhances sound intelligibility. Solo allows teachers to mute all audio sources excluding the Action! microphone with a push of a button, and PrioriTeach+ automatically lowers audio from media and student microphones when a teacher speaks. The built-in AnyWear feature auto-levels sound output, so teachers don't need to fuss over making sure the microphone is placed correctly. Best of all, the microphone includes PrivaSee to automatically turn off the microphone when a teacher steps out of the classroom. Our teacher microphone has a lightweight lithium-ion battery that charges quickly and has 8+ hours of talk time.
The “action buttons” on the microphone are programmable. Schools can have the buttons programmed to do any number of functions from calling the office to activating a classroom display. The programming capabilities are countless and customizable to a school’s needs.
Students are also more likely to participate when their voices are elevated as well. The Bravo! microphone ensures that a speaking student can be heard by their fellow learners in the classroom and online. This student microphone is a great tool to engage students and build their public speaking confidence. Just like our teacher microphone, the lightweight lithium-ion battery charges quickly and has 8+ hours of talk time.
Microphone Cradle Charger
The FlipCharge microphone charging cradle can be placed on a surface, like a desk or shelf, or mounted vertically on a wall. This smart charger keeps microphone batteries healthy and ready for eight hours of use.
Classroom Alert System
The system includes ClassLight, a multi-color visual beacon that can indicate when there is a campus alert, or if the system is in page override mode. When using FrontRow Conductor for campus communication, it can also indicate when an intercom session is in progress.
Elevate Base Station
The ELEVATE base station is the hub for all connected microphones. With no limit to the number of Base Stations in a school, classroom density is not a problem. The ELEVATE Base Station lives inside of your ezRoom enclosure and integrates seamlessly with the CM900 amplifier to provide unprecedented intelligibility in voice amplification for the classroom.
