Wireless Broadcasting To Mobile Phones (Simultaneous Translation)
This arrangement was designed for a conference requiring simultaneous translation into 3 different languages, with the listeners being able to hear the translation on their mobile phones by logging onto a local wireless network.
Of course it may be easily adapted for any number of languages.
The end user uses their mobile phone to login to a local "captive" wireless network (similar to those in airports). They turn on wireless on their phones, scan for networks, then use the designated network which might be named something like "conference-translation" .
After logging into this network, a web page would pop up with links to each of the different translation streams e.g. French, Spanish, English, German, or whatever the conference or church is using. After clicking on the link they will get the MP3 stream on their phone.
When you set this up, I would recommend you use good quality mics rather than just the built in mics of a notebook computer.
