We determined that the single-ear headset was the perfect solution for the sports bar environment since it allows you to converse with others while hearing your favorite event.

One of the biggest dilemmas that sports bar managers face is deciding what game to broadcast and whether to broadcast the sound through an overhead speaker system or directly from the TV itself. With many facilities playing 15 or more events, deciding which game appeals to the greatest number of patrons can be a challenge and the simultaneous sound from multiple games and TVs creates major noise pollution and can be very uncomfortable for guests.
One company, Broadcastvision Entertainment (http://www.broadcastvision.com) who pioneered a similar solution for fitness centers many years ago, has come up with a very affordable and effective solution for the legendary Ocean View Inn and Sports Pub of Islamorada in the Florida Keys (http://www.theocean-view.com).
Broadcastvision, a leading manufacturer of wireless transmitters and receivers for health clubs, fitness centers, sports bars, and correctional facilities worldwide has recently installed its new digital FM single ear headset system at the Ocean View Inn and Sports Pub, a sports bar owned by former Pittsburgh Steelers, Gary Dunn. Ocean View was the first pub to be issued a liquor license in the Florida Keys!
In early summer 2009, Ocean View general manager Larz Tatro contacted Kevin Fee, director of business development at Broadcastvision, to find a solution that will allow patrons to privately listen to the many sporting events being played on the pubs' high definition televisions within the bar and outside patio areas. "I had seen a Broadcastvision wireless system at one of the fitness centers in the area and contacted them about what innovative solutions they might have for a sports bar environment." says Tatro.
A new FM wireless system released this summer by Broadcastvision, wirelessly transmits the TV audio on vacant FM frequencies, allowing bar patrons to listen to any of the sporting events on a small digital single-ear headset radio. Patrons can easily adjust the volume or change games on the earpiece. "We determined that the single-ear headset was the perfect solution for the sports bar environment since it allows you to converse with others while hearing your favorite event." says Fee.
A popular benefit of the single-ear FM headset is that it can be branded with any company or sponsorship logo. The headsets are also inexpensive enough to resell or gift to patrons for promotional purposes.
In addition to large screen LCD TVs and brackets, music/messaging and sound systems, Broadcastvision also manufactures wireless 900MHz transmitters, receivers and personal viewing screens for military fitness centers, multi-unit housing properties, universities and medical environments.
