When legendary football player Robert Lewandowski and his business partners decided to open a sports bar in Warsaw, Poland, their goal was to create a space where guests could watch and hear sporting events on multiple screens from anywhere in the restaurant and bar.
The problem was, having multiple games on multiple screens throughout the four-story sports bar, NINE’s wanted guests to be able to access the sound of the game they were watching.
To ensure guests could hear the audio clearly from any of the screens in the space regardless of where they are located, ESS Audio suggested Listen EVERYWHERE, an audio over Wi-Fi solution from Listen Technologies.
Listen EVERYWHERE is a simple and cost-effective solution for audio streaming for silent screens. It helps people hear clearly in any listening environment. Listen EVERYWHERE works on a venue’s existing wireless network and lets guests use their smartphones and smart devices as receivers for the assistive listening system.
At NINE’s, guests download the free Listen EVERYWHERE app on their smartphones, select their preferred audio channel, and stream sound to their smartphones. They can listen to the audio through headphones or earbuds connected to their smartphone. They can also stream sound from their smartphones to Bluetooth enabled headphones or hearing aids.
This means when NINE’s is showing different Champions League matches on different screens in the same space, guests can tune into their preferred audio feed and hear the action clearly despite nearby conversations and ambient noise or distance from the screen. The Listen EVERYWHERE app is fully customizable.
Venues can promote events and special offerings and thereby capitalize on the opportunity to get more out of their digital signage and provide an engaging and more personalized experience to every guest.
