Did you know that you can supplement your live guided tours with pre-recorded commentary or music using your existing ieXplore Tour Guide System’s wireless transmitter?
Standard Process, Inc. is one of our clients that has done just that!
Standard Process Delivers Great Tours
Standard Process’s manufacturing facility is located in Palmyra, Wisconsin. They provide high-quality dietary supplements through health care professionals.
Visitors can take an in-depth tour of their facility. Visitors learn how extracts are made, view the chemistry laboratories, and watch mixed batches converted into tablets and capsules.
Walking tours of the organically certified farm are also available (weather and season permitting).
Blended Commentary – Live Guide and Pre-recorded Audio
During their informative tours Standard Processing delivers pre-recorded audio using our handheld audio guide that accompanies their live tour guide.
The live tour guide uses a wireless transmitter and head-worn microphone to communicate with visitors over manufacturing background noise clearly even if visitors are in the back of the group.
At tour stops (tour stations), the tour the guide plays audio tracks from their audio guide and all members of the tour can hear it.
This is what Karren Jeske, their Communications Manager has to say about this solution:
“Our tour guides and tour helpers have high praise for the new system and its ease of use. Our administrative assistant loves it, too, because it’s much easier for her to get everything ready for our tours.”
“…the tour guide can control the content for them. We’re finding that our guests can also pay more attention to the processes shown…”
Two Audio Sources on Wireless Transmitter for Plant Tours
The AUX IN “input” on our wireless transmitter is what makes this possible.
Using a 3.5mm male to male cable you can connect the output of most MP3 players directly into the AUX IN on the side of our wireless transmitter. You can also use most devices that output audio as long as the input cable to the wireless transmitter is a 3.5mm jack. For example, you could plug one end into a standard headphone jack of a tablet, smartphone, or an iPod Touch and the other end to the AUX IN on the wireless transmitter.
You can provide your guests with pre-recorded audio commentary or music whenever you like. Pre-recorded commentary is a great way to ensure a high quality, consistent tour experience. This gives your tour guides the opportunity to focus more on ensuring groups stay together, observing safety hazards, and fielding questions.
