Linguali adapts its interpretation solution at Vivatech!

Thales adopts Linguali Cloud for a brand new configuration at VivaTech

In only 3 editions, Viva Technology, the exhibition organized by Publicis and Les Echos, has positioned itself as the key event for digital transformation and technology players. 124,000 visitors gathered this year to discover the stands of the major groups and their satellite start-ups, listen to internationally renowned speakers, network and live experiences.

This year, Linguali was at Viva Technology, not as an exhibitor, but as a service provider, on Thales group’s stand. A 3-day simultaneous interpreting mission during which Thales guests listened to the speakers or the interpreters from the Linguali web app.

Thales, which has a longstanding commitment to open innovation, participated in VivaTech 2019 in Paris. During this edition, the French flagship of cutting-edge technology showcased its partnerships with many startups in 4 critical technologies: equipment connectivity, cybersecurity, big data and artificial intelligence. About thirty start-ups were invited to the Innovation Lab. Thales also offered innovations demonstrations, immersive experiments, and knowledge of technical and scientific professions. Throughout the 3 days, its stand offered a programme of more than 50 conferences on various topics: autonomous transport, the future of space exploration, smart cities, advanced medical technologies…

The professional part of Viva Technology being an English-speaking event, Thales had chosen to offer simultaneous interpretation of its conferences, with Linguali. The audience therefore used the web app to listen to either the speaker on the English channel or the interpreter on the French channel. And vice versa when the intervention was in French.

To meet the needs and constraints on an animated stand, Linguali deployed its Cloud technology by separating the acquisition function – in control room behind the stand – and the interpreter’s booth, isolated in an area where the two interpreters could practice their Art under the best conditions. Much better than if they had to work in the midst of the hubbub and the crowds movements. Participants could access the service either with the powerful Wi-Fi deployed for Vivatech or with their 4G package. However, given the attendance, the 4G connection was preferable.
