Silent Disco Equipment: Using AudioFetch for a Soundless & Safe Party

By | Music | No Comments

For those of you out there looking to keep the party spirit alive while maintaining safe social distances, we have the answer–Silent Discos!

Silent discos are events where people dance to music listened to on individual headphones. Rather than using a speaker system, silent disco equipment broadcasts music to the headphones, providing an experience that is unique for participants, considerate for neighbors, and in today’s environment, the most responsible choice for music events.

Silent discos started gaining popularity in 2005 at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, and are seeing a resurgence as people look for creative and safer ways to bring communities together. AudioFetch’s wireless audio streaming technology offers several benefits for silent discos:

Innovative Audio Streaming Technology

Traditional silent discos use FM radio transmitters to broadcast the music to wireless headphone receivers. This process works, but it’s an old school way of doing things! 

AudioFetch provides a next-generation solution that streams music wirelessly to smartphones. Listeners simply download the free AudioFetch app, connect to the WiFi and they’re able to hear the music immediately. 

No Headphones to Disinfect

Rather than providing shared headphones for listeners to use, AudioFetch allows users to listen with their own smartphone and headphones. Nothing to disinfect after each use and no worry of spreading disease. No rental gear to send back and no extra equipment to store after the event. No mess, no risk, no hassle!

Flexible Music Streaming Options

Want to keep the music going into the wee hours while adhering to noise ordinances? Planning a music event with multiple acts or DJs and need to provide listening options? Thinking of unifying your apartment complex with a unit-wide dance party? Have another silent event in mind? We offer several wireless audio streaming solutions to fit your needs.

Our Express model is a single-channel unit, which lets you broadcast from one artist or DJ. If you’ll have multiple audio options, our Lite or Signature Line is what you need. Lite allows you to broadcast four audio sources simultaneously, and Signature covers you from 4 sources all the way up to 512! 

Listeners can easily choose the DJ or artist by swiping right/left in the app to find the appropriate channel number. 

More Affordable Than Other Silent Disco Gear

Other silent disco equipment providers charge you for each headphone at a whopping $50 a pop (and that’s typically the budget option!). Then you have to buy the audio broadcast equipment, which can be anywhere from $150-500 for a single transmitter (which may not be enough for your event). And then you need to purchase all the accessories–cables, batteries, signage, storage containers, setup fees. All of those items together can really add up!

With AudioFetch, you only need to purchase the audio over WiFi equipment, and that’s it! There are no other accessories to buy–all cables and signage come with the equipment. There are no support or setup fees (not that you’ll need it, AudioFetch is extremely simple to install!). And listeners use their own smartphones and headphones, so you don’t have to worry about footing that bill either (or worry about spreading disease with shared equipment)!

Personal Volume Control

One volume does NOT fit all. 

Using AudioFetch for a silent disco, each participant is able to easily control the volume on their smartphone, reducing the risk of hearing damage. 

Encourage Conversation

No more yelling over blaring music or losing your voice the next day. A silent disco allows those people who are not dancing, or those simply taking a break, to converse at a normal level. And with the need for social distancing today, this is even more important. Individuals can talk at a safe distance from each other without even needing to raise their voices. 

If you’re interested in hosting a silent disco, we can help! Whether you’re planning a full music festival or a small neighborhood dance party, our AudioFetch wireless audio streaming products are a simple and affordable solution. Contact us today!

How to Attract More Customers For Sports Viewing

By | Sports Bars, Restaurants | No Comments

After going months cooped up in their homes, unable to watch live sports, fans are thirsting for the opportunity to cheer on their favorite team with friends and family.

Following are four ways you can attract more customers to your sports bar or restaurant to view the game, and meet social distancing regulations:

1. Create Food & Drink Specials

One thing is still the same in this new normal–food and drink specials are one of the most successful ways to draw in new customers and bring regulars back time and again. Happy hour prices, 2 for 1s, sports-themed fare are all ways to entice customers to choose your bar over others. 

To account for the reduced capacity and longer seating time during games, consider implementing check minimums during games. You may also want to adapt your menu to add in more appetizers and snacks, to keep customers ordering throughout the games. 

2. Provide an Innovative Listening Experience

Provide an innovative and safe way for customers to listen to the game with our TV app for sports bars.

AudioFetch technology allows you to broadcast audio from muted TVs to your customers’ smartphones and tablets. Customers can hear the TV audio from anywhere in the bar, even on the patio or in the parking lot, which means you can maintain the proper distance between tables without needing to blast the TV volume.

3. Create VIP Experiences

To create a unique offering that stands out and secure ongoing business throughout the season, some sports bars like the Buffalo Wild Wings locations in Cleveland have opted to create VIP experiences.

For $750, Buffalo Wild Wings season ticket holders get a reserved spot in a special section called the Dawg Pound, along with a welcome package, and wings, fries, nachos, and drinks during each game. If you do the math, that nets out to just $50 a game for customers, and guaranteed revenue for the sports bar. Not such a bad deal for all!

4. Make Sure Customers Know About Your Unique Offerings

Whether you’re doing one or all of the things on this list, you need to make sure your regulars and potential customers know about it. 

Use sidewalk sandwich boards to bring in passersby, send out emails to tell customers about your specials and unique listening and viewing options, post it on your website and social media channels, update ads on your local radio stations or news publications, and hang posters around your bar.

If you’re using AudioFetch, we provide a marketing kit to every customer with posters, table tents, and digital assets to help you get the word out. 

It’s never been more important to bring people together and unite them, and we’re proud to help businesses do this in a more responsible way. Through the end of September, we’re offering 35% off all AudioFetch sports bar and tailgating applications and upgrades. 

When purchasing our portable FetchExpress online, use the discount code FOOTBALL2020. For AudioFetch Signature or any of our other sports bar audio solutions, simply give us a call at 1-844-443-3824 or drop us a line today. This great deal is up at the end of the month, so don’t wait!

Celebrating the Start of Football Season

By | Sports Bars, Drive-in Audio, Restaurants, Stadiums | No Comments

The start of football season is always an exciting time of year. Not only does it mean action-packed viewing parties with loved ones, it also signifies the start of Fall and all the warm and cozy foods, clothing and environments we can look forward to. 

While fans may not be able to pack into most stadiums to watch the action this year, they can still enjoy the camaraderie (and competition!) with friends and family at sports bars and outdoor tailgating events. 

Our AudioFetch wireless audio streaming solutions are a great way to help fans hear the game while maintaining safe social distances in sports bars, restaurants, or even stadium parking lots!

Local Audio Over WiFi Solutions for Sports Bars & Restaurants 

Our AudioFetch local wireless audio streaming technology allows you to broadcast the game audio from muted TVs to your customers’ smartphones and tablets. Customers can hear the game from anywhere in the bar or patio by using the free AudioFetch app. This allows you to keep tables spaced farther apart and discourages gathering around a single TV. 

If you have multiple TVs airing different games or other programs on each, that’s no problem. AudioFetch can accommodate 16 audio inputs with a single unit, or up to 512 by using additional units! This allows you to attract more customers by offering several viewing options for fans (or something for those not-so-fans, who still want to go out with their friends!). 

Drive-In Audio Solution for Tailgating Parties

Stadiums may be sitting empty during live games, but the parking lots don’t have to be. Hosting tailgating viewing parties in stadium parking lots provides a safe viewing option for eager fans, and could help to recover some of the losses from in-stadium ticket sales. 

A big outdoor screen, our audio over WiFi streaming technology, and solid wireless internet is all you need to create this drive-in viewing experience. Fans can remain in their cars or truck beds, and listen to the game audio through their smartphone or tablet, or connected bluetooth speaker. 

To celebrate the start of football this year, and help businesses and organizations serve their guests in a more responsible way, we’re offering 35% off all AudioFetch sports bar and tailgating applications!* 

Use the discount code FOOTBALL2020 to purchase our portable FetchExpress online, or contact us to order AudioFetch Signature or any of our other sports bar audio solutions.

*35% off MSRP. Discount available from September 7, 2020 through September 30, 2020. Cannot be combined with other offers or discounts. One discount per customer.
