Scope of Work
Design, engineering, fabrication, installation, training and
documentation of background audio, interactive video and audio
enhancement of various mechanical interactives.
ETI provided the audio installation of the mixed background audio play back system of various animal sound effects along with the creaking sound of a wooden ship floating in water. ETI integrated technology in such a way as to not interfere with the function and appearance of the various existing interactives.
Examples of existing interactives and functions:
The trunk could be moved by pulling a rope. When kids pull the rope, it triggers the elephant sounds.
When a nearby lever is activated it triggers the head to pop up and the mouth to open emulating the sound of a howling coyote.
The existing acoustic “thunder” audio sound was too low. ETI enhanced the audio by amplifying the sound without taking away from the acoustic nature of the interactive.
