Servoreelers were developed to provide servo control of microphone cable. Their initial use was in the U.S. Senate Chamber. This first Servoreeler System has continued to operate flawlessly since its installation in 1994. Applying the unique patented designs that were developed, an entire family of Servoreeler mechanisms is now offered that permits remotely deploying, retracting and positioning any suspended microphone. Servoreelers make the use of suspended microphones plausible in environments where they would otherwise be unwelcome.
