Getting intelligible announcements/messages in airport & public spaces is always a challenge. Most often, these audio contents are difficult to hear, and message is not understood or lost.
Moreover, airports are evolving to become more and more a giant mall surrounded by boarding gates. Therefore, broadcasted audio contents can't be limited to flight announcements anymore. Passenger experience is a reality and airports around the world are fighting to be listed in the Best Airport Awards.
Passengers need comfort also for audio in the different section of the airport: Boarding gates call, entertainment corners, duty free shops, bars/restaurants, waiting areas...
This means that audio has to be intelligible yet non-invasive.
Old fashioned loudspeaker suffer from a poor pattern control, it cannot focus sound on a precise point. This creates unwanted noise, which is the N°1 annoyance. Result is stress, fatigue, rigging in the ears, sleep disorder, high blood pressure, and even cardiovascular disorders.
ODIHO is using passenger own smartphone (which equipped 80% of the passengers to broadcast any sound contents in the airport. The smartphone becomes a personal speaker, and each passenger can take back control of what and how they want to listen.
