BUS CALL, the professional public announcement mp3-player for bus and train stations, cruise vessels, airports, supermarkets, public buildings, factories.
For stations of a public bus company, at large supermarkets, on a cruise liner, in a public building or a factory site, several repeating public announcements are to be made daily.
A public bus company in a tourism area has e.g. 100 busses and 50 final destinations. Because of daily shift changes different busses are heading for different destinations every day. The station master on duty announces the departures including bus numbers and destinations, as well as other information in several languages by microphone and public-address system to the passengers. The quality of the announcements by microphone differs very much, depending on the speaking employee. The speakers may change with different shifts. Announcements in different languages are often very difficult to understand by the recipients, because the speakers do not have the desired skills of pronouncing the announcements in a foreign language correctly. In our example with 100 busses and 50 destinations in 3 languages there are 15.000 possible combinations.
THE PROBLEM’S SOLUTION: Semi automated announcements supported by a computer program using pre recorded and compressed recordings of all kinds of repeated announcements like dates, times, bus numbers, destinations departures, arrivals, hints, whatever. The program finds the data belonging to the announcements, puts the texts together in until 10 languages and plays them using the client’s existing P.A. system.
