The resulting experience is the foundation for creating mobile, socially interactive communities in a number of vertical markets, such as health clubs, sports bars and restaurants, casinos, and other venues where televisions require their audio to be muted for practical noise considerations. Audioair also has a “second screen” component that serves as a powerful interactive mobile advertising and gaming platform.
