The first Silent Event of Linguali

by | Sep 4, 2018 | Events, News | 0 comments

Men fencing world cup “Challenge SNCF Réseau” was standing at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin on the 12th of May. Jean-Jacques Béna, ancient fencer, delivered its comments all along the competition. SNCF Réseau’s VIP’s guests could listen to him from the stands: first silent event for Linguali.
Challenge SNCF Réseau is the most prestigious World cup event for men in fencing. It brings together the best fencers. The competition took place on two days, separating solo and team competition.

Since 2 years, the SNCF Réseau has been offering live comments to its VIP guests. And this year it is via Linguali!
With the help of Jean-Jacques Béna, SNCF Réseau is one of the first event organizers to offer a silent event during a sporting event.

Our willingness to bring a commentator to precise both rules and each events of the matches, was to answer the demand that everyone coming to this world cup could benefit live comments. Live comments that could help people understanding concretely the precisions of the touch and the specific rules of fencing.

Silent Event ?

For its first silent event, Linguali deployed the Linguali Event solution. It consists of an acquisition laptop and a neckband microphone for the commentator. Comments were circulated to VIPs via a Ruckus Wi-Fi hotspot network, deployed and managed by Resolutions.

This time, no interpretations, we simply broadcast the comments live.
