Product InfoHow it WorksAccessoriesWhat's IncludedAdding PlayersSupport
Our Who's Next Buzzer System ...
is perfect for capturing the order that players buzz-in, not just the first player!
Does your competition format require you to capture the first three (or more players) who ring-in?

If a player gets a wrong answer, do you need to see who rang-in next without clearing the system and having players ring-in again?

  The "Who's Next?" Buzzer System operates like our "traditional" system, but unlike other buzzer systems, this system continues to record button presses after the first player has buzzed in. Players who ring-in after the first player can be identified in the order their buttons were pressed.
After a player has answered a question, the moderator has the option to
  • clear the system if the player got the right answer, or
  • advance to next player to see if he/she has the correct answer. 

Intuitive and easy to use!
This video shows how the system works.

Who's Next?
How it Works
(4 min video)

This continues until no more players are in the queue, at which point the system is cleared and ready for the next question.

Also works like a "first only" buzzer system
The system is versatile - it has a mode switch that allows you to switch between  who's next" mode, and "only find the first" mode.

Players compete by pressing the button on their tabletop player box.

The system sounds and the light on the first player's box lights. All other players are locked out.

Lights on the player boxes are easily seen by all participants.

The player's light stays lit until the system is cleared for the next question.

When you're ready for the next question, press the reset button to clear the lights. The system can be reset one of two ways: (1) the reset button (on the console), or (2) a hand-held button plugged into the console.
