Hi - I'm hoping the forum can help me find an answer to this.  I'd like to be able to broadcast audio to about 400 different mobile phones through bluetooth.  All the people would be in a specific area, i.e. a concert hall.  Has anyone ever done this before? What kind of technology is available to do this kind of thing?

Good luck with that. Bluetooth devices can only connect to a limited number of other devices on a PAN. This would require a large number of devices to cover an area - and the range is limited to 10 m.

By the way, I've deleted your duplicate post. Only one is needed.
