Small all-round device

The Podcatcher is an interactive audio handset. The Podcatcher can be used for all types of interpretation and interaction, anything from a simple audio guide, to a remote control for an interactive exhibition or game.

App for smart-phones

Offer something for everyone

When you develop your guide you automatically get a matching App. The App is for IOS and Android. In the App visitors can access content either by scanning QR codes, via a number keypad or by selecting an object from a list. Having an App will enlarge your target-group. The Apps also offer a tool for hearing impaired visitors, it uses text overlay so visitors van read the tour as well.

Accessing audio

Just point and listen

Visitors simply point their Podcatcher at a trigger, called an IDentifier, to activate the information. If a visitor is using the App, they just scan a QR-code. The audio will automatically start playing. Both devices work in-and outdoors.

Keep it Simple

No distractions or wasting time

The Podcatcher does not use a screen, headphones or lots of buttons. This results in visitors not being distracted, still being able to interact and that it is suitable for visitors of all ages. It also keeps things quick and efficient for you and your staff.

Sync audio with tv screens

Offer large scale visual content

To offer visitors video content the Podcatcher can sychronize lip-sync audio with screens. Visitors are able to watch video on large screens and listen to the audio, in their own language, on the Podcatcher.

Docking stations

Small, lightweight & easy to use

The docking stations are used to charge and sync the Podcatcher every day. 10 Podcatcher fit in 1 dock and 1 dock is the same size as A5 piece of paper. The docks can be placed on a desk or fixed to the wall. Updating is done via internet.
