LONDON.- AudioCompass, a division of Ras Maestros Technology of Mumbai, and imagineear of London have worked together to deliver the first ever audio visual guide to one of the wonders of the world: the Taj Mahal, on the mediaPacker™ platform.For almost 400 years since Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan built a mausoleum on the banks of the Yamuna River in Agra in memory of his young wife Mumtaz Mahal, visitors have been fascinated and awed by the scale, the opulence and the sheer beauty of the Taj Mahal. From March, the site was brought to sparking life as never before with a personal guided multimedia tour available at the site itself.

AudioCompass, a leading Indian tourism and cultural interpretation services provider, has worked with the Archaeological Survey of India, script-writers, translators, studios and producers, together with their experienced London partner imagineear, to create the perfect visitor experience. Imagineear’s producers worked to polish the script, and AudioCompass engineers helped optimise the latest imagineear technology platform, the mediaPacker™, in order to ensure a seamless tour delivery in English, French and Hindi.

Gautam Shewakramani, CEO of AudioCompass, said “Imagineear’s deep experience has resulted in our relationship growing from one of technology partners, with their mediaPacker™ platform, to advisors for our script, site operations, and the development of our in-house technology platform the AudioCompass MX1. We are thrilled to collaborate with them as we shape the Indian interpretation industry.” Andrew Nugée of imagineear added: “we are delighted to partner with AudioCompass on this project at one of the world’s most recognisable tourist destinations, and one of our most enduring love stories. AudioCompass has brought energy and dynamism to the market in India, and we look forward to working more closely together within the region and elsewhere.”
