Salzburg Congress implements trendsetting audio streaming service
Salzburg Congress has always believed in staying ahead of the trends in event technology. Since this summer, the conventional infra-red technology at the venue has been replaced by an innovative, digital interpreting service. The revolutionary auXala audio streaming system is manufactured by an Austrian business, Lineapp GmbH, based on internet and cloud technologies. It has now made conventional hardware such as infra-red receivers completely superfluous.
Use you own mobile end device
The new technology in use at Salzburg Congress relies on the increasingly popular BYOD (bring your own device) approach and enables participants to work with their own mobile devices. Congress participants are sent a link (optionally protected by a password) and are then hooked up to the event via their own smartphones – without the need for an app. The link can be activated prior to the event or during the registration process. A language is selected and the simultaneous translation is broadcasted to each participant’s own device and headphones. The voice of the interpreter arrives in ‘real time’ at a record speed of under one second.
The major benefit of the new audio streaming service is its 100% scalability and the fact that it can be customised to specific needs and capacities. We will also be using the new streaming service for functions such as poster discussions using whispering interpreters, or as a support option for participants with hearing impairments – hence also guaranteeing all participants unrestricted participation and access to all aspects of an event.
