The Bluetooth® community makes major strides each year that drive wireless innovation, overcome challenges, and create stronger, more interoperable connections around the world. Community members work closely with the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) to deliver informative presentations at global events that showcase the benefits of Bluetooth technology and outline how it is being used to create a more connected world, free from wires.

With the onset and impact of the pandemic and the amplification of our remote work culture, we have seen a surge in recorded presentations delivered at a host of virtual events. Here is a look back at some of the top recorded Bluetooth webinars of the year.

Previewing Bluetooth LE Audio

Bluetooth® LE Audio will provide tools to extend the range of embedded applications for audio. Watch this detailed examination of LE Audio to see how embedded designers will be able to take advantage of the new capabilities. Watch the presentation.

Upcoming Bluetooth Enhancements to Improve the Lives of People with Hearing Loss

Several years ago, the Bluetooth SIG and hearing aid industry began a collaboration to enhance Bluetooth® technology to better meet the needs of people with hearing loss. See how the results of that effort will soon improve the availability, performance, and interoperability of Bluetooth enabled hearing aids and enable deployment of a true next-generation assistive listening system (ALS) capable of providing a significantly better user experience than existing inductive loop systems. Watch the presentation.

Improving Lives through Assistive Listening Technology

See Jesal Vishnuram with Action on Hearing Loss discusses the need to increase support for the growing number of people with hearing loss and the benefit assistive listening technologies can have on their lives. Watch the presentation

Low Latency, Deterministic Bluetooth Technology

Watch Pelle Svenson of ublox provide an overview of low latency deterministic control using Bluetooth® technology and highlight existing applications that industrial control companies have developed using Bluetooth technology. Watch the presentation.

The Expanding Role of Bluetooth® Technology in Location Solutions

Location services is one of the fastest-growing solution areas for Bluetooth® technology. Jim Katsandres from the Bluetooth SIG covers the latest advancements and use cases in Bluetooth location services, including the use of Bluetooth technology to help with safe return-to-work solutions. Watch the presentation.

Location Services and Direction Finding with Bluetooth Technology

In 2019, Bluetooth® technology acquired a new capability that allows the direction of a signal to be accurately determined using two methods known as Angle of Arrival (AoA) or Angle of Departure (AoD). Watch this session to learn about Bluetooth location services and the new direction finding feature, how it works, and its key use cases. This session also previews upcoming enhancements to the technology that will help usher in the next step in increasing the accuracy of location services solutions. Watch the presentation.

Bluetooth® Mesh Masterclass

This webinar covers a wide range of aspects relating to Bluetooth® mesh lighting control networks and provides next-level understanding of the following principles: radio network principles, Bluetooth mesh principles of operation, security and provisioning, information publishing and subscribing, lighting models, and distributed lighting control. Watch the presentation.

Bluetooth® Mesh: The Benefits for Lighting

There has long been a debate about which wireless protocol is best for use in lighting products and applications. In this session, Edward Lees, Global Head of Technical Product development at Feilo Sylvania, will give you a perspective on the benefits that Bluetooth® mesh can realize for lighting OEMs and lighting customers. Watch the presentation.

Qualified Bluetooth® Mesh in the Real World

Bluetooth® mesh is disrupting and revolutionizing lighting control. In this special session, we’ll look at the opportunities and benefits and refer to real-world projects including the installation at Osram’s HQ in Munich. Watch the presentation.
