Durateq® ATV celebrates its 20th deployment: Part 1

March 8, 2014

We continue our long-term collaboration with the US National Park Service, and right before the 2013 calendar lost its last leaf we completed the DURATEQ Assistive Technology Version installations at yet another three locations. The total number of the DURATEQ installations has hit 20, and keeps expanding with the new projects of 2014.

Let’s take a quick look at the NPS landmarks we’ve helped make more accessible to visually and hearing impaired guests from all over the country coming there to delve into the patriotic and heroic atmosphere of resurgent history.

Monocacy National Battlefield

DURATEQ assistive technology at Monocacy Visitor Center

Visitor Center

The first one to be featured is Monocacy National Battlefield, a park dedicated to a Civil War’s combat known as “the Battle that saved Washington, D.C.”. Here is the official announcement.

The DURATEQ Assistive Technology System provides audio narration and assistive listening to allow people of all abilities enjoy the exhibition as on an individual guided tour.

Assistive listening and audio naration at exhibition area

Battle Map: audio description and assistive listening is provided in this exhibit area.

The battle map uses fiber optics to re-create troop movements of the battle synchronized to audio narration. Lighting of the portraits is also synchronized. The show is started via a button on the map board.

Confederate Position

Union / Confederate Position: Audio narration for this section is synchronized with the previous section so they do not overlap.


Corner Room / Artillery

Stay tuned for pics from the next DURATEQ ATV deployment at the David Wills House in downtown Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and don’t forget to plan a trip and enjoy Monocacy National Battlefield!
