New exhibitor Audio Everywhere is using ISE to introduce what the company describes as a next generation patented solution for streaming audio from TVs and other audio sources to smart phones and tablets over WiFi.
The heart of the Audio Everywhere system, the ExXtractor, connects each participating venue’s audio sources, such as DirecTV receivers, to the internal local area network (LAN). Each audio signal is then streamed over the venue’s WiFi. By downloading the free Audio Everywhere app, users access the venue’s WiFi to hear the audio from one or more TVs on their smart phone or tablet.
The Audio Everywhere ExXtractor features a 15cm deep rack-mountable 1U form factor and up to 16 inputs. Combining systems with an Ethernet switch enables more inputs.
The new system is said to feature lower latency and soft limiting on over-driven inputs. A key enhancement now enables the system to receive differential signalling, which provides increased immunity to electromagnetic noise on long wire runs. Fine control of data packet prioritisation is now inherent, along with better troubleshooting tools.
Audio Everywhere customers can power their marketing through the company’s Cloud portal to create in-app pre-roll videos, clickable scanning banners, channel artwork and other features.
