Orlando, FL, USA — Oceaneering International Inc., Entertainment Systems Division in Orlando is launching their RevOlution™ trackless ride vehicle featuring one of Alcorn McBride’s newest products, TourTraXX, a compact multi-channel audio player with high-quality MP3 playback and built-in GPS functionality.
“It’s a Tru-Trackless™ ride vehicle capable of motion in any direction at any time,” says Bill Bunting, manager of business development at Oceaneering. “The system has a three-axis motion base, can follow multiple ride paths, and transports eight people.”
A division of the global oilfield provider, Oceaneering is building Alcorn McBride’s TourTraXX into the trackless ride to distribute audio to the vehicle. “We wanted to provide an onboard audio experience that will match the ride,” says project coordinator Matt Kent. “We picked TourTraXX to give us the most flexibility, and it offers creative capabilities for 5.1 sound.”
TourTraXX plays up to 16 audio tracks in a small rugged form factor. It stores clips in MP3 format on CompactFlash for a reliable and maintenance-free solution to playback needs on the go. It’s lightweight (4 lbs) and sized to fit almost anywhere; with no moving parts it’s a great choice for high-vibration environments.
Kent gives kudos to the ability of TourTraXX to deploy audio recorded on flash drives. “It’s very easy to change out, very easy to record – there are no moving parts. Easy maintainability is the hallmark of Oceaneering products, so keeping our system as maintenance-free as possible is a key consideration for us.”
Oceaneering plans to sell its trackless ride vehicle to theme parks around the world. Its first application will be at SeaWorld’s newest attraction, “Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin,” which opens late spring.
TourTraXX is uniquely designed for a wide variety of mobile applications. With it’s built-in GPS functions it can also play audio files from latitude and longitude triggered points making it ideal for pre-recorded bus and boat tours, trolley’s, trams and a host of other mobile appliations. Spot-logging capabilities add a revenue generating opportunity, logging and time stamping advertising spots along the routes. All audio files are stored on CompactFlash cards for ultra-high reliability. TourTraXX fits into Alcorn McBride’s line of mobile audio and video players.
