Auri™ Increases Audio Accessibility and Provides Better Listening Experiences

For an estimated 466 million people worldwide with hearing loss, traditional sound systems are not enough. Assistive listening systems provide an inclusive and accessible experience to guests by delivering audio directly to a user’s headphones or hearing aid. Listen Technologies and Ampetronic are excited to demonstrate Auri™ for assistive listening at HLAA 2024 Convention

Introducing Auri™: A New Standard in Assistive Listening

Auri™ is the first-generation Auracast™ broadcast audio-based assistive listening solution that lets venues and end users access the emerging Auracast™ market now.

Listen Technologies and Ampetronic designed Auri™ as a complete solution that includes networked installation transmitters for multi-channel broadcast for any size space, with the option for open or secure transmission. The solution also includes dedicated receivers and docking stations. Most venues will use the dedicated receivers so guests without Auracast™ compatible devices can access Auracast™ broadcast audio.

Auri™ will feature a complete line of accessories, including headphones, neck loops (or personal induction loops), and network management and configuration software. Auri™ will offer multi-language support. When combined with neck loops and signage, Auri™ will help venues meet ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) or global accessibility requirements for assistive listening.

Auracast™: The Technology Behind Auri™

Auracast™ broadcast audio is a new standard for Bluetooth® Low Energy that can broadcast audio simultaneously to an unlimited number of Auracast™ compatible devices. In spaces where Auracast™ broadcast audio is available, people with hearing aids, cochlear implants, earbuds, receivers, or other devices that are Auracast™ compatible will be able to receive high-quality audio from a public Auracast™ transmitter without added noise or effects caused by the room environment. This will provide both improved experience and broader inclusivity.

HLAA 2024 Convention: A Platform for Innovation

The HLAA 2024 Convention, held from June 27-30 in New Orleans, is an ideal venue for the unveiling of Auri™. The convention is a hub for the latest advancements in hearing technology. It allows attendees to explore new products, attend educational sessions, and connect with others who share similar experiences.

Attendees are encouraged to visit booth 405-407 by Listen Technologies and Ampetronic. This exhibit will demonstrate Auri’s™ capabilities and provide insights from industry experts on how this technology can be integrated into everyday life.

Tracy Bathurst, chief technology officer at Listen Technologies, and Sam Burkinshaw, head of business development at Ampetronic, will join Chuck Sabin from the Bluetooth SIG, and Rich Fischer from GN ReSound, a manufacturer, to lead an educational workshop at the HLAA 2024 Convention. The workshop, titled “Keeping up with Progress and Deployment of Auracast™ Broadcast Audio – Latest Updates from the Market,” will take place Friday, June 28, from 2:30-3:45 p.m. All HLAA 2024 Convention attendees are invited to attend this workshop to learn more and experience Auracast™ broadcast audio.
