Supplier of wireless headset technology for events, Silent Seminars, has launched a mobile app designed to allow audiences to listen to live audio at events using their own headsets.
Intended to work alongside its existing physical headset systems, the app aims to give users choice when accessing audio at live events. By offering audiences the option to use their own headsets, Silent Seminars hopes to “generate user confidence and demonstrate that delegate health and safety is being taken seriously” in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Via the app, users can connect to content from their smart phones and listen to the audio using their own headphones. The app aims to help event organisers deliver clear audio with the option to stream in as many different theatres as required, and in multiple languages.
The app can also be used outside of the conferences and exhibitions. As it is mobile and power free, it can be used for other events such as fitness classes, yoga, cinema, tour guides and film screenings.
On the app, each event has its own tab accessible by a password distributed by the organisers. It is fully customisable, so event information, branding, and sponsorship can be included in the individual event tab with the additional option to capture and encrypt email addresses, names and numbers. For the technicians delivering the audio, a tablet with a separate broadcaster app is provided.
Duncan Strain, director at Silent Seminars, said: “We are incredibly excited at the launch of this innovative app which will make delivery of seminar content even easier and safer for delegates to access.
“It is a great time to be launching our app as planners are currently preparing to make up for time lost in 2020 and are keen to use technology to help them adapt in line with Covid-19 regulations. The app offers all the benefits of our headsets – great audio quality, multiple breakout spaces in the same room and reduced noise levels within the space so that multiple exhibitors and presenters can communicate clearly and simultaneously – plus, the process of tuning in is even easier than before.
“The app is another big development in our technology which is continuing to reshape the way audio is delivered within the conference and exhibition industry.”
