What is Vox Connect?

‘Vox Connect’ is intelligent smartphone guiding for groups. It is a sophisticated state-of-the-art app that harnesses smartphone technology to wirelessly connect tour guides and their groups.
It is simple to set up and use and delivers crystal-clear communication with low latency. Moreover, group members will feel secure and safe, because everyone will be using their personal smartphones and headsets (extra single user headsets are available), and they will be able to socially distance with ease. With Vox Connect, touring becomes even more of a pleasure as advanced mixing technology allows guides to use voice and music to enhance their guests’ experience; and they can conduct polls or answer questions at any time. A record function allows later playback and long-distance streaming will allow a tour in Italy to be listened to in New York.

How it works

Vox Connect turns the phone of a group leader or guide into a transmitter and the visitor’s smartphone into a receiver. A simple app is downloaded on both devices and the whole system then works across a data transmission protocol, which could be any of the following:

Vox Box, a portable connectivity device (see below)
A venue or location Wi-Fi.
The user’s personal internet provider
(4G, LTE or 5G networks)

The tour guide creates a channel in the app and informs the group of their choice of data transmission protocol. The participants of the tour simply select the channel in the app and join. Multiple guides can connect to the system by creating different channels, and the number of connected receivers is unlimited. Vox Connect operates on both iOS or Android platforms.
