Engage Your Audience with Catchbox, The World’s First Throwable Microphone
Whether you want to increase engagement for conference attendees, activate students, or make meetings more fun, Catchbox can help
Focus On Participation, Not Just Information
People don’t go to lectures, conferences, or meetings just to listen to someone talk; that is what youtube, email, and the internet is for. Instead, events should be about engagement, participation, and discussion, not just information.
For One Way Information
For Participation & Discussion
We came up with the Catchbox because we wanted to change the status quo and make events more of a dialogue as opposed to a one way monologue. Tired of waiting for the handheld microphone to be passed around, we thought; what about making it throwable ? Turns out, not only is this faster, but it also makes events more engaging and fun.
Make Audience Participation Fast & Easy
With Catchbox, getting audiences to participate becomes as easy as throwing them the box. Because this is faster and easier than passing a handheld microphone, questions, comments, and discussion become more spontaneous and can occur throughout a presentation or lecture, not just at the end.
Breaks The Ice & Lightens the Mood
Most people are afraid of speaking in front of their peers, limiting discussion. The colorful playful Catchbox easily breaks the ice and lightens the mood at any event. Participation becomes more relaxed, fun, and game like. This means even the quietest attendees aren’t afraid to speak up, and that the all important “silly obvious” questions get asked.
Simple Is Powerful
No technology or tool is effective if people don’t know how to use it. This is why people love the Catchbox, because it doesn’t require elaborate explanations, downloads, or manuals to understand; It's just like a normal wireless microphone but you throw it. Electronics automatically mute the audio when the device is in the air or being dropped. All audience members need to do is talk into the box.
Light & Soft
The Catchbox is made from a combination of durable light foams and technical fabrics, making it extremely light for its size as well as durable. All the hard electronic components are hidden inside, ensuring that dropping and throwing the device won’t damage the device or the person catching.
To avoid unwanted noises caused from throwing and dropping, Catchbox comes with a patent pending technology called Automute. Automute senses the motion of the Catchbox and temporarily switches off the audio when the device is thrown, caught or dropped.
Professional Sound Quality
Catchbox was designed first and foremost to have great audio quality. Not only has the frequency response of the mic been optimised for speech, but the special construction of the device eliminates all handling noises, whilst the automute feature mutes the mic when it is dropped or thrown.
" Not only does the automute feature eliminate any noise from throwing or dropping the microphone, but the audio is superb in general.
The Catchbox comes in two versions to accommodate for different types of sound systems and use cases; whether it be a small classroom of 20 students, to a theatre hall of several thousand attendees, the Catchbox can be connected with ease.
Dirt repellent & Long Life Span
The Catchbox outer cover is specially treated with a nano teflon coating that repels dirt and avoids stains. The coating is also anti-bacterial. To ensure a long lifespan of the product, all of the outer components that can wear over time such as the microphone cap and outer shell can also be replaced.
A patent pending magnetic mechanism ensures the microphone and electronics lock securely into the soft outer cover and won’t come out during use. Only with a twist and pull motion can the lock be opened, allowing access the electronics and batteries inside.
