Linguali took care of the simultaneous interpretation at the Azure Red Shirt Dev Tour, at number 104, Paris on the 23rd of January. Here’s why and how. Edit: the Video!
The Azure Red Shirt Dev Tour brings together app developers in the Microsoft Cloud. All six hours of demos and live coding were provided by Scott Guthrie; the executive VP of Microsoft Cloud himself!

At their Paris event, Microsoft offered English-French interpretation to its participants; through Linguali! By choosing Linguali, Microsoft is one of the first multilingual event organisers to move on from traditional interpretation systems.

We chose Linguali in order to offer an innovative yet simple solution, so that each of our participants could make the most of the presentations delivered by our American speakers

Under the bonnet and in the booth

For this event, Linguali deployed our Linguali Event software, which consisted of a floor laptop, taking in the audio output for the sound desk, and an interpreter’s laptop in the booth, which performs all the functions of a console, and the two together were coordinating with the operation server on site. The live interpretation was broadcast to the participants via the Ruckus Wi-Fi network, deployed and managed by the agency Résolutions, which manages the network services at the Centquatre.

For an interpreter, Linguali is intuitive and even more simple than some standard consoles, and offers a great level of comfort with ISO audio
