Live Experiences Reinvented. Wirelessly.
Bluetooth® Auracast™️ wireless streaming presents a radical paradigm shift for live music and sporting events, our latest article looks at the reinvention of the live experience.
Imagine a going to a live music concert with perfect sound quality for every seat in the house. Where there is no need to bring earplugs as volume level is an individual choice, and where the view of the stage is unimpeded by huge speaker arrays blocking sight lines.
Or going to a sporting event with live commentary throughout, perhaps a football match with dedicated streams for home and away team supporters, or a motorsports race with the option to also listen in on the team radio discussions about race position and pit stop strategies.
We are all familiar with the one-to-one pairing offered by Bluetooth Classic Audio, wirelessly streaming from our mobile devices to our earbuds, headphones, and personal speakers. As headphone jacks are removed from mobile devices, wireless earbuds and headphones are becoming the norm, be they premium branded offerings or mass market clones, and replacing their wired predecessors.
Instead of this one-to-one pairing, the emerging Bluetooth LE Audio standard offers one-to-many broadcast streaming, branded as Auracast, with potentially an unlimited number of users subscribed to a single source. This new technology will permeate our lives in many ways, including how we experience live entertainment. Whilst current models of wireless earbuds and headphones still employ Bluetooth Classic Audio, in the next couple of years we will see the shift to LE Audio as the major manufacturers of smartphones and other mobile devices integrate this functionality.
