Abstract

A method and apparatus is provided for setting up a wireless conference call, wireless non-call conference, and sharing audio and/or video content. The method includes the steps of providing an audio mixer that receives an audio input from each of at least three audio interfaces, mixes, cleans, and amplifies and/or de-amplifies the audio signal from the audio inputs and provides an equalized audio output to each of the at least three audio interfaces; providing a first local wireless interface between a first audio interface of the at least three audio interfaces and a wireless headset of a first local participant; providing a second local wireless interface between a second audio interface of the at least three audio interfaces and a wireless headset of a second local participant; and, providing a third wireless interface between a third audio interface of the at least three audio interfaces and a remote communications means for communicating with a remote participant, wherein the communication paths to the first local participant, second local participant and the remote participant are all discrete, so as to permit simultaneous two-way (incoming and outgoing) communications between each participant during wireless conferencing between the local participants and during wireless conferencing between the local participants and the remote participant, and so as to permit simultaneous one-way communications between an audio and/or video content source and each local participant during wireless sharing of audio and/or video content between the local participants.
