Why Choose Us
What is an Audience Response System
An audience response system (ARS) collects data from an audience. It consists of three components:
Participants use response devices to reply to questions crafted by an operator using interactive presentation software. The response devices transmit the votes to a response receiver, which communicates with the interactive software to display the collected data in a graphical form. Once a presentation is completed the data is available in a variety of reports for analysis. Audience response systems are commonly used for electronic voting, live surveys, audience polling, interactive games, testing, and market research. All of Meridia’s ARS systems are sold with live training, phone / email support, and unlimited access to variety of online learning tools.
