SENNHEISER EXHIBITS NEW guidePORT DESIGN

guideport_charger.JPGOLD LYME, CONNECTICUT – AUGUST 2008: Audio specialist Sennheiser introduces its highly successful guidePORT visitor information system in an attractive new design. Trendy silver and black modules will now be guiding visitors around theme parks, museums and exhibitions all over the world. Inside the units, digital RF technology guarantees that an exciting visitor experience will be achieved with Sennheiser’s premium audio quality.

The guidePORT system offers exhibition organizers the benefits of a single system for all types of use – whether they want automatic, freely available visitor information, a guided tour, or even an interpreting system. Depending on the application, guidePORT consists of compact receivers for the visitors, mobile transmitters for the guides and identifiers that automatically trigger audio information, as well as cell transmitters and antennas if large amounts of new information need to be transmitted to the visitors’ receivers.

“Hearing is a very important means of experiencing something. Merely looking at things and reading explanations is not very satisfying,” David McNutt, industry team manager, installed sound at Sennheiser, said. “The guidePORT system, on the other hand, provides a true multi-media experience in the visitor’s own language, and allows information to be tailor-made for specific groups – a guided tour for children, for example. Videos and show elements can be integrated into the presentation – enhanced by lip-sync translations. Narrative, music, and sounds turn an exhibit into a vivid experience into which visitors can immerse themselves.”

The guidePORT system is being further developed on a continual basis. The latest software release 2.2.4.0 enables the visitor receivers and the mobile transmitters for the guides to be easily programmed via a small identifier. By sending out a short signal, it immediately connects the tour group with the guide’s transmitter. It also makes adjustment of the language and volume level at the receiver much easier. “At the entrance, the visitor receiver is simply scanned across the corresponding identifier and the right language is instantly programmed,” McNutt explains.

The guidePORT system is offered through a network of highly trained system integrators. These partners provide exhibitors throughout the world with expert support, not only for technical issues but also when it comes to preparing the contents of an exhibition. “The guidePORT system partners offer a comprehensive information system from a single source-from the preparation of the multi-media contents, the sound recordings and the translations, right through to the installation of the system itself,” McNutt said.

The range of services also includes financing and leasing concepts. Some system partners even offer the option to have guidePORT operated by an external service provider free of charge for the museum.

The first receivers and transmitters in the attractive new design are already in action at one of Mexico’s most important historical sites. In the ancient Mayan city of Tulum, guidePORT takes the guests on a spectacular illuminated journey through the city at night. Around three hundred receivers in six languages are there to guarantee a unique and unforgettable experience.
