Being part of the audio industry for nearly two decades, we’ve seen an unbelievable amount of change and growth. We’re excited to see that with each passing year, while the technology becomes more advanced and sophisticated, the listener experience becomes more user-friendly and simpler.
Yet, some of the terms we use to describe various concepts, products and features can be confusing. So today we’d like to address one of those potentially puzzling topics–wireless audio distribution.
Let’s dive in!
What is wireless audio distribution?
Wireless audio distribution is a way to deliver high-quality audio content without requiring hard-wiring. It’s a great option for public events or activities that require sound, but do not have the infrastructure (or budget!) for a complex installation of hardware and cables.
While there are numerous types of wireless audio distribution systems out there, they all include the same four components:
1. Audio source
2. Audio transmitter
3. Audio receiver
4. Audio reproduction or playback device (i.e., amplifier or speaker)
How does wireless audio distribution work?
A transmitter receives an audio signal from a source (e.g., TV, music, person speaking, etc.) then transmits the signal over a wireless network. The receiver picks up this wireless signal and sends it to an audio reproduction devices (i.e., speaker or amplifier) which turns the signal into audible sound.
Who uses wireless audio distribution?
Numerous different types of businesses and events use wireless audio distribution systems. Here are just a few examples:
– Race tracks
– Sports stadiums
– Live music events
– Business conference rooms
– Legislative proceedings
– Educational institutions
– Churches and houses of worship
– Event centers
– Community centers
