BTX Named U.S. Distributor of Soundog® Wireless Tabletop Audio System

HAWTHORNE, N.Y. ― May 19, 2008 ― BTX Technologies, Inc. today announced that it has been named as the U.S. distributor of the Soundog® audio system. Manufactured by Sprox®, Inc., the Soundog system consists of a 4-, 6-, or 8-channel transmitter and wireless tabletop speakers. The Soundog speakers allow restaurant and sports bar patrons to hear audio right at their tables from any of the displays stationed around the establishment.

Soundog’s wireless audio technology has unleashed a new way for sports enthusiasts to enjoy sporting events in a bar or restaurant setting — seeing the game while simultaneously hearing the play-by-play commentary. Employing a long-range frequency, the Soundog speaker allows customers to audio surf through eight programs being broadcast simultaneously. While the establishment selects the programming, the customer can control the volume using digital push buttons and an easy on/off volume control on a hand-held unit.

“We selected BTX as the U.S. distributor for Soundog based on the company’s history of quality representation, dedication to innovation, and its vast network of representative channel partners,? said Doug Buday, CEO of Sprox®, Inc. “We are confident that this agreement will provide greater access to Soundog for a broader customer base, while also offering hands-on, high-quality service.?

The digital eight-channel transmitter, which broadcasts sound over a low FM frequency, does not interfere with other wireless devices. Soundog works with any standard or high-definition cable or satellite receiver, including DirecTV or any other audio source. The system runs for a minimum of 16 hours on a single charge, and recharges overnight on a wall-mounted charging station called the DogHouse™.

“We are proud to be the Soundog distributor in the U.S.,? said Greg Schwartz, president of BTX. “We have a history of providing innovative A/V solutions, and Soundog is certainly no exception. It is a real breakthrough product that brings the game to life for sports fans, while also increasing profits for bar and restaurant owners.?

BTX’s representative channel partners are offering live demos of the product throughout the country. Live demos will also be held in the BTX booth at InfoComm 2008.
