For many years now, Bluetooth has been making connections really easy – for example between mobile phones and various accessories, such as headsets or speakers. Today, it's hard to imagine life without it, so we'll take you on a short trip into the past and first give you a brief insight into the history of Bluetooth development.
In 1966 already, a technical standard was born to replace telecommunication cables, however it only used UHF radio waves with a very limited range. Based on this, in 1994 Dr. Jaap Haartsen developed the Bluetooth standard as we know it today. By the way, it was named after the Danish Viking King Harald Bluetooth, whose initials “H” and “B” combined in Nordic runes make up the Bluetooth logo. Isn’t that cool?
This new Bluetooth radio standard which is still valid today is very similar to WiFi and depends on the device being used. As the main purpose is to get away from cumbersome cable connections, it is designed as an interface to wirelessly connect devices over relatively short transmission distances from 10 to a maximum of 100 metres.When using Bluetooth, the user needs to make sure that the respective end device is able to transmit, receive, or even both. Smart devices such as mobile phones or tablets, various headsets or computers can both transmit and receive, whereas devices such as printers or most Bluetooth speakers are only able to receive.
Reloop is also successfully integrating Bluetooth technology into a range of different devices: The RMX-10 BT or RMX-44 BT DJ mixers, the portable Groove Blaster BT speaker or the Spin portable turntable are just a few examples. They are all classic receiver components, as smart devices are only required here for playback and no other Bluetooth devices need to be connected or linked up. The Groove Blaster BT also has an integrated smart link function which allows two Groove Blaster BT's to be connected wirelessly to each other. The result: twice the total volume and a convenient distribution of speakers over several rooms (speaker pairing).
As already mentioned, Bluetooth makes it easier to connect between a range of different devices. Presumably most people have at some time used their smartphone to play music or have linked streaming services with a Bluetooth box speaker. These universal connection options (smart connectivity) don't just replace cumbersome cable connections, such as loudspeaker or printer cables and keyboard connections, but also allow data to be exchanged directly between smartphones, laptops or iPads and tablets.Upshot: Today, the continuously evolving Bluetooth standard is increasingly optimising the range and speed of data transmissions and therefore is being used in more and more areas – both in private life and in industry. The advantages are obvious: considerably greater flexibility and a clear overview thanks to seamless networking between end devices and peripherals.
