New Stadium Listening Solution by AudioFetch

By | AudioFetch News, Stadiums | No Comments

Experiencing a live sporting event, concert, speaker or other big performance involves all five senses. Seeing the video screens and special effects. Smelling the hot dogs cooking on the grill. Feeling the cool summer night breeze. Tasting that first sip of ice cold beer. Listening to the play-by-play commentary or catching all the hit songs. Each of these senses is important, but it’s that last one–hearing–that is so important for live events. 

Hearing enables us to connect with the world and people around us, and allows us to enjoy life to its fullest. It also helps keep us safe in potentially threatening or emergency situations. So when fans can’t hear in noisy stadiums or arenas, they can miss out on the high points of the event or even critical announcements. 

That’s why we’re so excited to announce a new local WiFi audio streaming solution–Stadium Listening

“Accessibility and experience are incredibly important to stadiums and large arenas,” says Tim DePumpo, CEO of AudioFetch. “They want each and every person at that event to enjoy each and every aspect of the performance. And audio is a major, if not the most important part.”

This new solution allows thousands of listeners to hear live local audio on their smartphone or tablet using the AudioFetch app. It’s ideal for attendees with hearing disabilities or simply those that want to clearly hear the main event over hollering vendors, cheering fans, blaring vuvuzelas and other miscellaneous event din. Any venue that draws a large crowd–sports stadiums, concert arenas, large auditoriums, indoor or outdoor amphitheaters–can use this new audio streaming solution to provide hearing assistance for attendees. 

“When we first developed AudioFetch, we were focused on smaller venues and smaller crowds–maybe 50 to 100 people watching games in a sports bar, or 20 people running on treadmills at the gym,” says Tim. “As the company has grown, so have the crowd sizes that want to listen. We’ve gotten interest from stadiums and large arenas around the world, and knew we needed to come up with a solution for mass listening.” 

For the stadium or event venue, it works similarly to our other local audio streaming products. Just three easy steps get you up and running: 1. Connect the audio source(s) to AudioFetch using the included cables; 2. Connect the AudioFetch to the WiFi router; and 3. Attendees download the AudioFetch App and listen in real-time. (And if you want to get technical, that’s really only two steps on you!)

For attendees, it’s the exact same process as any other venue. Simply download the AudioFetch App for Apple or Android, connect to the local WiFi and start listening! 

“We’ve spent years developing the technology to make this mass listening possible,” Tim adds. “And also spent years making sure customers and users never know how much tech is behind it. It’s so simple to get more people hearing better, and that’s our number one goal.”

What’s Included in Our Tour Guide Accessories Kit

By | AudioFetch News, Tour Guides | No Comments

A tour guide needs to be light, nimble and prepared for anything that might happen during a tour. Any little technical or logistical mishap–a dead microphone battery, missing cables, juggling all kinds of devices and papers–can create a not-so positive experience for guests. So we’ve put together a customized Tour Guide Accessories Kit. When used with the FetchExpress wireless tour guide system, it contains all the tools tour guides need to be prepared and go hands-free during their tours.

Our Tour Guide Accessories Kit includes:

  • USB Battery – Today, battery power is worth more than gold! That’s why we’ve included an extra long life external battery pack to ensure you never run out of juice halfway through a tour.
  • Battery Charger Cable – That battery pack would be useless without a way to plug it in!
  • Headset Microphone – A lightweight, hassle-free microphone that comfortably fits around the back of your head, delivering high-quality sound and freeing up your hands for all your guiding needs.
  • Safety Band – The Elastic band allows you to secure the FetchExpress to the battery pack, keeping the devices organized and stable.
  • Instruction Cards – Each kit comes with a stack of small cards with a QR code for simple download of the AudioFetch App including brief instructions.
  • Belt Pack – A roomy hip pack that’s the perfect size for holding the FetchExpress, battery pack, and all other accessories you need. Strap it on and you’re hands free, ready to point out interesting sights, hand-out tickets, or hold open doors!
