Audience Response System (ARS)

Audience Response System

Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council has acquired an Interactive Audience Response System. The system consists of credit card sized keypads, receivers, and software. Participants answer questions displayed on a screen and receive answer confirmation on their ResponseCard through two-way communication. Successful transmissions are acknowledged on the participant’s keypad via a three second long visual green light signal. In addition to displaying the audience response instantly on-screen, the TurningPoint software can perform demographic slicing of all responses in countless ways. Currently the Council owns 200 keypads but can add additional keypads for larger events.

Let the Tampa Bay regional planning council move your next meeting into the 21st century!
