Listen Technologies is showcasing Listen Everywhere, its new and improved Wi-Fi product, at ISE 2019. Listen Everywhere replaces Audio Everywhere and features upgraded hardware, a streamlined finish and a new server with professional audio outputs.
Listen Everywhere enables personal listening experiences in any venue. With proprietary Listen Technologies hardware, the system is easy to add to a venue’s existing wireless network and can accommodate thousands of users and over 50 channels. In venues featuring Listen Everywhere hardware, patrons and guests can experience wireless audio streamed directly to iOS and Android smart phones and tablets via a free downloadable app.
Visitors to Listen Technologies’ booth (number 7-C192) at ISE 2019 will be able to download the Listen Everywhere app and stream audio from any one of four channels to their smart phones or tablets. There will be two channels streaming audio from video screens in the booth to personal devices, one channel streaming recorded audio and a fourth channel featuring audio streamed from a live mic that will demonstrate the product’s very low latency.
The Listen Everywhere app can be customised to promote a venue’s brand and further enhance the user experience. When patrons and guests open the app, they will see the venue’s unique welcome message. Venues can upload ads, coupons and special promotions as well as links to menus, class notes, meeting agendas and other content. Custom labels and logos make it easy for users to find their preferred audio channels.
Listen Everywhere is an affordable, low-latency solution that is ideal for houses of worship and classroom settings where ambient noise and distance can make it difficult for congregants and students to hear audio clearly. The product also can be used in indoor arenas and airports and in combination with other ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) systems such as ListenRF, ListenIR or ListenLOOP for assistive listening.
“The Listen Everywhere product is one more way Listen Technologies is reimagining wireless listening,” said Doug Taylor, chief product officer, Listen Technologies. “Listen Everywhere allows people to be engaged by listening to audio in their own way through their own smart device. The product also allows venues to brand the Listen Everywhere app, offering a richer, more engaging experience to the user.”
Listen Everywhere is available now. A free upgrade is available for Audio Everywhere users to get their servers on the latest Listen Everywhere software and cloud service.
Also at ISE 2019, Listen Technologies will showcase two new receivers – the LKR-11 and LKR-12 – and the latest accessories for its mobile communication product ListenTalk.
The new LKR-11 Receiver Pro features volume control, crisp, clear audio, near field communication (NFC), a storage tray, software pairing and OLED digital display. Unlike the original LK-1 Transceiver, it only features one-way communication and does not have an internal mic or talk back button. The LKR-12 Receiver Basic is similar to the LKR-11, but does not feature NFC or the OLED digital display. The new receivers extend the flexibility of the ListenTalk system. Users start with one original ListenTalk LK-1 transceiver and add more transceivers or receivers as needed to suit their unique sound environment requirements and budget.
