“The tests we conducted during a pilot project with Grey-Box, as part of a partnership with the Digi-Hub Shawinigan, allow us to envision greater autonomy and fluidity in the field experience we offer at the Forges-du-Saint-Maurice, by improving connectivity for an outdoor audio tour.”
Visitor Experience Manager, Mauricie and Western Quebec Field Unit
“On the road, our internet connection is sometimes problematic for our fleet of laptops. UNI is a great alternative to overcome this technical issue in the context of some of our projects. Our organization is very pleased with the customer service and technical assistance received.”

“We used UNI for our conservation education outreach in a rural village in Southern Madagascar this fall. The villagers were enthusiastic about accessing UNI through their cell phones. I would recommend UNI for anyone working internationally in rural areas where internet is not always available.”

“One of the notable advantages is its versatile connectivity options, which go beyond the conventional laptop connection. We want to highlight that the device can be conveniently connected also to power banks. This capability provides us with increased flexibility and convenience in various scenarios. With the ability to connect the device to a power bank, we can enjoy uninterrupted functionality and mobility, even in situations where a laptop or traditional power source is not readily available. This feature proves to be particularly useful in outdoor settings or during power outages, ensuring continuous operation and usage.“
