Augmented Reality | Offline visitor guides

Why a shoutr app?

shoutr labs has been developing apps for museums, tourism, memorials, education, trade and industry since 2014. The apps we develop are always tailored and optimized to the needs of our customers. In museums and exhibitions, apps can increase and expand the possibilities of knowledge transfer and visitor loyalty. For example, built-in augmented reality experiences offer completely new dimensions for visitors.

 

Apps for augmented reality and knowledge transfer

Among other things, shoutr labs developed the “App2Space” app together with Universum® Bremen. The app, specially developed for the special exhibition “Up to Space”, offers immersive experiences and expands the exhibition with augmented reality elements. For example, visitors can view the 3D model of a space suit or drive a Mars rover.

Apps for offline streaming and visitor guidance

The shoutr labs apps have already proven themselves several times in the tourism and outdoor sectors. For example, an app can be made available for visitors to download at the visitor reception of an open-air museum or nature park. All necessary data and multimedia functions are then on the smartphone and can be used for the corresponding tours.

The users then do not need any further data usage, only the GPS has to be switched on to enable a navigated tour. Our apps also enable offline streaming of content and orientation in the area of memorial sites and cemeteries. There is also the possibility of triggering certain elements or events in the app when certain areas (points of interest) of a tour have been reached.

the integration of Augmented Reality is also possible

Apps for inclusive visits and guided tours

Inclusion is also becoming increasingly important in the museum, exhibition and tourism sectors.

In close cooperation with the Berlinische Galerie and the DBSV , we developed, for example, the barrier-free app “Berlinische Galerie – an inclusive guide”, which accompanies and guides visitors through the Berlinische Galerie.

The shoutr.Beacons placed in ERCO rails trigger location-related content and support blind and visually impaired visitors with descriptive texts, explanations of the tactile models and orientation information.

An important aspect of how the museum app works is its compatibility with Voice-Over, a basic accessibility feature for blind people. The images of the paintings on the smartphone can also be enlarged.
