FetchExpress

FetchExpress is a portable PA system that lets you broadcast audio no matter where you or your audience happen to be. Are you a fitness instructor holding classes in a park? How about a tour guide leading guests through a quiet museum? Or maybe you’re hosting an outdoor movie night and don’t want to disturb neighbors? If you want your audience to hear better without distractions (or distracting others), FetchExpress is what you need.

FetchExpress has built-in WiFi, turning you into a walking hotspot. With a 60-100 ft. coverage in any direction, you can easily broadcast to students running drills up a hill, youth groups on a hiking retreat, attendees in a large lecture hall, or anywhere you can imagine! And as with the traditional AudioFetch platform, FetchExpress is an easy way to provide TV audio to smartphones. It connects up to six TVs wirelessly for a super-simple installation.

FetchExpress is a low-cost, easy-to-install, maintenance-free package, allowing you to bring sound to any location!

NETWORK BANDWIDTH
Bandwidth consumed by each audio stream (stereo) 50 UDP packets per second averaging 201  bytes each     (includes the IP header but not physical layer header)Therefore,  UDP (+ IP header) bandwidth is:       10050 bytes/sec (average) for each audio stream (~80Kbps)Discovery and keep-alive control traffic is negligible compared to this
Bandwidth consumed by each audio stream (mono) 50 UDP packets per second averaging 121  bytes each     (includes the IP header but not physical layer header)Therefore,  UDP (+ IP header) bandwidth is:       6050 bytes/sec (average) for each audio stream  (~48Kbps)Discovery and keep-alive control traffic is negligible
