Audio HotSpot for Audience Discrete Listening

by Mayo DeLeon on September 30th, 2015

The Audio Hotspot first takes analog audio feeds and converts them to digital audio signals.  The digital audio signals are sent to a processor, which converts them to bitstreams and assigns each bitstream a unique channel number.  The channelized bitstreams are sent to the hotspot network, where wi-fi access point(s) broadcast them to portable devices. 
Each portable device uses a downloaded App to tune to the channel for the audio they wish to hear.  In this diagram, channels 1-4 contain the audio for television displays 1-4.  In a sports bar, or exercise club, the client would choose the channel for the TV, and hear the audio through their portable device speaker or earphones/headphones plugged into the headphone jack.
The Audio HotSpot requires a connection to the internet.  An Administrator Portal allows the Audio HotSpot owner/manager to create advertising and other content to be displayed on the portable devices.  The internet connection from the HotSpot system to the Administrator Portal maintains the operating software and HotSpot service. Since the HotSpot includes external internet access, the client's portable device can also use the internet while they are connected to the Audio HotSpot network.

 

 The Audio HotSpot is an innovative, new listening technology that allows any venue to stream audio via Wi-Fi from TVs, music sources or live programs directly to an individual’s smartphone or tablet.  To listen, an individual simply connects to the local Wi-Fi, downloads the free Audio Hotspotâ„¢ app from the Google Play or Apple App Store, and selects the audio channel they want to hear.

Each Audio HotSpot system is customized, consisting of hardware components and a proprietary software license.  Once a system is installed in a venue, the software license is activated based on the number of channels (up to 56) at that venue.
