Auracast™ Based Assistive Listening Will Deliver a Better Listening Experience
Auracast™ is a new standard for Bluetooth® Low Energy audio. It can broadcast audio simultaneously to an unlimited number of Auracast™ compatible devices, including receivers, hearing aids, earbuds, and smartphones.
Auracast™ broadcast audio technology will transform the way hearing assistance is delivered in public spaces, enabling any Auracast™ compatible device to easily connect directly to transmitters. People with hearing aids, cochlear implants, or receivers that are Auracast™ compatible will be able to connect to a transmitter and receive high quality audio without added noise or effects caused by the room environment. This will provide both improved experience and broader inclusivity.
Listen Technologies and Ampetronic are developing the first complete solution to let venues and end users adopt Auracast™ broadcast audio technology now. Their solution includes networked installed transmitters for multi-channel broadcast for small and large spaces, with the option for open or secure transmission. The solution also will have dedicated receivers and charging bases, and a complete line of accessories, including headphones, neck loops, and network management and configuration software.
