Southtowne is a popular luxury apartment complex and retail center in Pensacola, Florida. Developed by Studer Properties, it features 258 residential units, an outdoor pool, rooftop lounge, two gyms, a game room, cybercafé and business center.
Studer Properties wanted an audio system that included speakers for the Southtowne fitness center and wireless radio frequency (RF) transmitters that would allow gym visitors to dial into the audio of one of the three TV’s in the room. It sought help from Greg Klimetz, an AV system integrator at Relevant AV Solutions.
Klimetz proposed an audio over Wi-Fi solution from Listen Technologies. The Audio Everywhere product* could easily and affordably be installed over Southtowne’s existing wireless network. Residents and guests would be able to download the free Listen Technologies audio over Wi-Fi app on their smart devices and stream audio from one of four Southtowne audio channels.
Using headphones, earbuds, or Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids, they would be able to experience clear sound regardless of distance from the audio source or competing background noise.
Studer Properties liked the ability to deliver a customized audio experience to residents and contracted Relevant AV Solutions to manage product installation. Klimetz also customized the product’s app to reflect the Southtowne logo and unique audio selection options for residents.
