Książ Castle chooses Imagineear for Onsite Interpretation

One of Poland’s most colourful and well-known castles has chosen Imagineear’s high performance MPti™ device to support its museum visitor app.

Built in the late 1280s by Bolko I “the Strict”, Duke of Świdnica and Jawor, Książ Castle in Walbrzych, was acknowledged to be “the key to Silesia” because of its important strategic significance as a defensive fortification. The Castle is also famed for its picturesque location, formal gardens and elegant palm house.  The Castle Museum’s app provides visitors with a self-guided tour of its long, fascinating and turbulent history under the ownership of kings and archdukes.  Also known as Schloss Fürstenstein, it was seized by the Nazi regime during WW2, before being occupied in turn by the Soviets in 1945.

The purpose-built MPti™ offers a robust casing, all-day battery life and intelligent screen management to provide optimal repeat visitor rentals both indoors and outside.  Designed on an Android operating system, it offers a powerful proprietary app-building environment, TourBuilder™, but is fully and immediately compatible with existing Android apps.

“Our MPti™ devices were chosen to host the Castle’s app, and to provide access to visitors who don’t want to use their Smartphones.  It provides a seamless, high quality experience that reflects the Castle Museum app’s own excellent content and design,” explains Mariusz Marszałkiewicz, Imagineear’s Regional Manager for Poland.

Imagineear’s MPti™ players have been installed at Książ Castle with headphones and a charging racks.
