Visit Audio Spotlight by Holosonics at Booth 1248 during the AAM Museum Expo to experience the future of touchless directional sound technology!
Audio Spotlight speakers are a smart choice for museums and are rapidly replacing antiquated and unsanitary headsets. Emitting sound beams as precise as a beam of light, the speakers can be used in areas that are close together because while the listener is immersed in sound, the surrounding area is quiet. Plus, their inherently touchless design delivers personalized audio experiences without requiring any physical contact by the listener, which today is an indispensable quality.
People everywhere have become increasingly cautious about the objects they come into contact with in their daily lives and, as a result, “touchless technology” is more important now than ever before. For over two decades, Audio Spotlight SoundBeam® technology from Holosonics has provided touchless directional sound in a wide range of directional sound applications throughout the world.
Audio Spotlight sound beaming technology provides a safe, sanitary, and touchless interactive audio solution. Our no-touch sound beaming device with Bluetooth and motion sensor options eliminate the need for people in public spaces to use inferior devices such as headphones, handsets, or listening wands that have been repeatedly handled by other users.
In museums, older technologies such as headphones and handsets are often re-used by hundreds of people or more in the span of just a single day. Simply cleaning such devices with anti-bacterial or anti-viral products does not guarantee an item has been adequately sanitized. Additionally, if a patron knows that he or she will need to use a hand-held device as part of an exhibit tour, they may be less likely to go to museums.
“We’ve seen many articles and reports online that highlight the unsanitary nature of using traditional hands-on devices such as headphones for audio tours in museums and other public settings,” said Dr. F. Joseph Pompei, Founder and CEO of Holosonics. “People may be surprised to learn that the foam used in headphone cushions is like a sponge that absorbs body moisture and allows the transfer of skin cells, biological material, germs, bacteria and viruses that can potentially transfer from one user to another. The touchless and sanitary directional sound that Audio Spotlight delivers is a much safer alternative compared to hands-on devices like headphones.”
As a result, businesses like museums are seeking ways to quell public fears and eliminate unsanitary devices by providing touchless audio narratives. Since 2000, thousands of Audio Spotlight systems have been installed in a wide range of applications around the world, as thousands of companies have chosen this unique, patented, touchless technology to provide high-quality, precisely controlled sound, while preserving the quiet.
