Widget maker RapcoHorizon has a new Blox problem solver, the BTIBlox, a Bluetooth interface in an XLR plug-on package.
The BTIBlox has a male XLR plug on one with a translucent other end covering status LEDs. It can plug into a mixer input to provide a streaming input from a Bluetooth transmitting smart device such as a smartphone or tablet.
It operates under phantom power or an internal rechargeable battery. It follows Bluetooth 4.2 spec and has a line of sight range of 75 feet.
Rapco’s Darius Seabaugh said, “NAB presents a unique opportunity for us to display our BTIBlox to a crowd that might not otherwise consider this product … This new self-contained device allows users to simplify their audio streaming workflow by eliminating the need for multiple wires to connect to an audio device.”
