Radial’s BT-Pro Bluetooth Direct Box Now Shipping

May 31st, 2016 | Posted in News, newsletter

The BT-Pro is a Bluetooth direct box designed to capture the wireless transmission from a Bluetooth enabled device and convert the signal to a balanced line for use in a PA system. According to Radial President Peter Janis: “It seems that today, Bluetooth wireless technology is everywhere. You can connect your phone to your car, your laptop to your house and tablet to your TV. It only makes sense that Bluetooth wireless technology would hit the stage. In recent months, we have had a number of requests to bring Radial’s legendary build quality to this endeavor and we are pleased to announce the BT-Pro as a solution. I think it is most impressive how our engineering team managed to solve the problem of durability with the need for wireless transmission. The BT-Pro employs a T-shaped access cavity behind which we located the antenna. This is protected by a milled Sintra insert made from a rugged closed-cell PVC that allows the wireless transmission signal to pass. This innovation allows reception distances of 12 meters (40′) or more.” More »
