The “live real time” programme was designed so that visitors can listen to a sound bite (generally translated into their native language), synchronised with a show or film that is being performed or played in front of them. Each visitor therefore has their own perfectly synchronised version.
This technique is perfectly reliable and potentially adapted to a large number of users at the same time. It can be used for Progressive Web Apps or native programmes.
“Live real time” means that a visitor to a museum, a live performance or a show can have their own version of sound that is perfectly synchronised with the show.
Live real time can be used in a wide range of scenarios:
- Shows: The original version is shown in the room and the translated versions are available on smartphone.
- Museums, Heritage sites: For each video or sound bite, the foreign visitor can listen to a translated version synchronised on their smartphone. As they move from one show to the next, the positioning system will automatically provide them with the right show that corresponds to their location.
- Video mapping for evening shows: the sound is not provided through a powerful sound system after a certain time, and thanks to this technology, the spectators, who are sometimes quite far away from the show, can hear the sound and it is synchronised with the show.
Live Real Time is an interface that is used with all the main show control systems on the market and with the most commonly used video mapping software.
It can make use of a specific network (controlled infrastructure WiFi) to guarantee an optimal experience for many users at the same time (sometimes up to 2,000 at the same time), or available 4G networks via operators.
5G coverage would mean that this capacity could be increased even further and synchronisation would be even more precise, thanks to reduced latency.

Cosmo AV – Les Sables XXL
Les Sables d’Olonnes – France
The video-mapping show, conceived by Cosmo AV, was projected onto huge silos at the harbour in Les Sables d’Olonne, to tell the story of the town and to be seen from all over the town’s harbour. The sound to accompany the showing was only provided for early evening sessions. For the rest of the showings, to avoid disturbing the locals, viewers could listen to the sound through their smartphone using a Progressive Web App, created thanks to Wezit technology.
Puy Du Fou
Les Épesses / Toledo – France / Espagne)
In France (Vendée) and Spain (Toledo), the programmes are based on live shows, the sound is produced through a mobile visit application and is sometimes used for 14,000 people in an arena at the same time. Some of the visitors using the application are foreign. This service is built into a global mobile application, providing a structured visit.

The Alsace Moselle memorial in the Vosges is more than just a museum, it is an interpretation centre that welcomes visitors from all over Europe.
