Bluetooth technology is an often underrated product that has quietly grown in popularity over the last few years. First developed in 2004, this product is now featured in home entertainment systems, individual headphones, vehicles of all shapes and sizes, and large venues designed for audio visual displays.
This seemingly magical connecting force has transformed the way we interact with media and entertainment. Here’s how Bluetooth works and how audio video companies have benefited from its use.
What is Bluetooth technology?
Bluetooth technology is a type of wireless internet connection established by an antenna-equipped chip. When this chip is implanted in an electronic device, it serves as a signal receiver for another Bluetooth device, forming a connection between the two without the need for cables or wires. It does so by relying on a specific frequency transmitted between the two devices.
When the frequency is received, it’s laden with information that the secondary device can read and understand. For example, if you connect your phone to your car, your car will understand the type of file it receives along with any changes in volume you make on your phone.
The only limitation of Bluetooth is that it has a small range. This makes it difficult to implement throughout a building, but a series of Bluetooth-equipped devices can cover a vast range, from a museum hall to a small amphitheater.
How has it impacted the AV world?
Audio video companies throughout the world have benefited from the use of Bluetooth technology. No longer do AV systems for businesses rely on a series of complicated, messy cables; with the help of Bluetooth technology, audio video displays provide a streamlined look for half the effort. When sound system installation is more efficient, both the end client and the audio video company benefits.
This has made AV design look better for the clients, simpler to understand for new members of the AV community, and easier to use across the board. Whether you’re setting up a sound system in your restaurant or establishing an audio visual display in a museum hallway, there are countless benefits Bluetooth technology has provided for clients and audio engineers alike. It’s no wonder the Bluetooth market has grown from nine million unites sold in 2013 to more than 42 million as of 2016.
