Crailsheim-based BMS Audio will be exhibiting its latest tour guide systems at the RDA Group Travel Exhibition in Friedrichshafen from 20 to 21 April. The BMS Audio TOM-Audio TG-101 eTour provides a digital tour guide system that for the first time provides the opportunity for real communication between the speaker and participants.

Over 1,500 international trade visitors attended the first RDA Group Travel exhibition held last year. The organiser, RDA-Workshop Touristik-Service GmbH, was pleased to report a 35% increase in exhibitor registrations in January 2017. Higher visitors numbers are therefore expected at this years event held in Halls A7 and B5 at the Messe Friedrichshafen Exhibition Centre. Reason enough for BMS Audio to showcase its tour guide systems to the group and coach travel sector.

The BMS Audio digital TOM-Audio TG-101 eTour is a tour guide system that, for the first time, permits real dialogue. Unlike with the pure communication of information, on guided group tours, participants can now put questions to the speaker. As soon as communication is activated for the group on the transmitter, a listener can enable the microphone by pressing a button. The rest of the group can follow the conversation. Other participants can only use the feedback/query function once the button is no longer pressed, thereby avoiding lengthy and uncontrolled discussion. The feedback function can be disabled at any time and the tour continued.

The entire system comprises transmitters, receivers and the SyncKit, which provides an easy grouping function when needed. Transmitters and receivers are placed in the transport bag, the required channel is selected using the SyncKit, then that too is placed into the transport bag’s station. All groups are switched onto their own channel in this same simple way. The system is virtually self-explanatory. There are 56 channels available for wireless transmission.

Weighing only 33 grammes and with a running time of up to 20 hours – the receiver module is a real lightweight. The lithium-polymer battery is fully charged in approx. 6 hours. To do this, the equipment is placed into the charging bag, which also transports and stores it securely. The bag is designed for 35 or 50 devices. And if you need more capacity, then a stacking metal charging drawer accommodates up to 60 terminals. The charging trolley is the XXL solution for 70 units. All versions feature a compartment for microphones and handsets. Organisers have the choice of permanently installing a system or opting for a mobile solution. The systems are extremely robust and easy to maintain. The handy disinfectant wipes enable handsets, headsets and devices to be cleaned with ease.

Interested trade visitors have the opportunity to thoroughly test the system. We will be happy to answer all questions at Stand D22 in Hall B5.
