The global pandemic has changed life as we know it for most of 2020. Event planning and production companies are adapting and finding new ways to do business. Mel Speed at The Music Company and TMC Productions had a request for an outdoor drive-in movie night where people could maintain a social distance while enjoying a movie on the big screen.
Initially, Mel Speed planned to use a traditional FM transmitter to broadcast the movie’s audio to cars. When someone mentioned that Listen Technologies has a device that transmits the sound via cell phones, he decided to try it. Audio streamed over Wi-Fi is a more reliable solution delivering superior audio quality compared to sound delivered over an FM system.
Listen EVERYWHERE broadcasts crystal-clear audio over Wi-Fi to a free app (available on both Android and IOS devices). Featuring a customizable app, the device allows business owners to add welcome videos, upcoming event promos, text banners, and more.
TMC Productions has hosted six pop-up drive-in movie nights in mall parking lots with an average of 50 cars in attendance. Listen EVERYWHERE allows guests to enjoy crystal clear audio while watching a movie on the big screen from the safety of their own vehicle.
• Sanitary with no shared equipment or receivers to distribute.
• Portable, easy to set up, and simple to use.
• Broadcasts via an existing Wi-Fi network.
TMC Productions has four future pop-up movie nights planned, with hopes of hosting drive-in concerts once local mandates allow live music.SYSTEM COMPONENTS
