Listen Technologies Offers Courses for Architects on ADA and CBC Guidelines for Serving People with Hearing Disabilities

— Courses offer American Institute of Architects (AIA) certification credits, a yearly requirement for AIA members —

BLUFFDALE, UT, October 3, 2014 — Listen Technologies Corporation, the leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of assistive listening products for over 16 years, has made it an ongoing priority to offer contractors, system integrators, consultants, architects and venue owners the most up-to-date resources on how to best serve those requiring assistive listening. These resources explore and clarify guidelines and recommendations set forth by institutions and legislative efforts including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the California Building Code (CBC), the Accessibility of Ontarians with Disability Act and other related measures. Compliance with these guidelines is not only mandatory and legally enforced, but a clear moral imperative; however, many professionals, although well-meaning, let certain considerations in regard to hearing disability fall through the cracks when designing new structures or updating existing facilities. A new set of courses offered by Listen is specifically designed to educate architects on ADA and CBC recommendations, offering credits for American Institute of Architects (AIA) certification in the process.

Listen Technologies has been approved to teach two courses, both earning (1) LU/HSW credit:
1. Course Title: ADA Assistive Listening Legislation
2. Course Title: California Building Code & The ADA Assistive Listening Legislation

Course objectives:
• Understand the impact of the new requirements of the ADA/CBC
• Understand the unique sound needs of the hard of hearing community
• Apply the ADA (or CBC, in California) to the welfare of people requiring assistive listening systems
• Recognize the technologies that can reconnect people to a positive experience in any venue

The courses are offered on an individual basis by Listen personnel at sites around the U.S. To inquire about a scheduled session or to set up a course date, please email sales@listentech.com. The company will also have the courses available as webinars at www.listentech.com.

For architects to remain certified through AIA, they are required to have 18 total learning units each year. Of these 18 required (LU) Learning Units, 12 of them must be in the category of Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW). Listen has developed these courses (ADA & the CBC) along with their objectives, to align under HSW learning units. These courses offered by Listen are informative and educational in nature and talk about the “why” of hearing loss – how many people have hearing loss, why hearing aids are not enough in a venue, what happens when people have hearing loss and what that is like – and then goes into the ADA and CBC codes, which are actually fairly straightforward. They then address the different types of solutions offered by Listen and the pros/cons of each technology.

Cory Schaeffer, Listen Technologies Vice President of Business Development, states, “Offering a presentation that provides AIA/HSW Learning Units to architects allows Listen to share our unique wealth of knowledge with this group of professionals. Often AV is the last ‘trade’ brought into a project, and for some assistive listening technologies that is way too late. These courses allow us to share information about hearing loss with architects and the fact that it’s the largest disability covered under the ADA (17% compared to 1.4% requiring wheelchair access), as well as what the ADA and other building code requirements are and what technologies meet the code and the advantages/disadvantages of each technology. We know that once participating architects have completed these courses, more consideration will be made earlier in projects.”

For more information on these courses and all other inquiries, please email sales@listentech.com.

The new website is easier to use while providing even more relevant information. The new logo and look reflects our commitment to simplicity,” said Russell Gentner, President of Listen Technologies. “The new website provides a new and improved way to launch new products, services, and solutions that our customers are demanding. Stay tuned – we are just getting started.”

Listen Technologies Provides Comprehensive Resources on Updates to California Building Code Requirements

— CBC guidelines for assistive listening go further than the ADA requirements, and Listen Technologies has gathered and clarified the information for contractors/system integrators and their clients in real-world terms —

— Company creates dedicated pages on its website with current information on recent changes to the CBC and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance —

BLUFFDALE, UT, July 29, 2014 — As part of its ongoing efforts to provide venues, contractors and system integrators with the latest resources, Listen Technologies Corporation, a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of assistive listening products, has gathered and clarified updated information on the California Building Code (CBC). The state of California relies on the CBC to outline the compliance laws for facilities that serve people with hearing disabilities in California – with more specific guidelines than those offered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The CBC is updated and published every three years, and the most recent revision took effect January 1, 2014. The new guidelines are particularly significant for houses of worship, which are now classified as “assembly areas” by the CBC and are not exempt from the laws for such spaces. In addition, meeting rooms and conference rooms are required to have assistive listening.

“We know that our channel partners and clients are often not aware of changes in compliance and how they affect AV projects,” stated Cory Schaeffer, Listen Technologies VP Business Development Worldwide. “At Listen Technologies we spend a great deal of time and effort to first understand the requirements as they relate to our category of products, then to communicate the changes and guidelines in brief so that they are understood and easy to follow. We hope these resources help the contractors and consultants working in the Golden State to communicate to the venue owners, as the venue owners can be held legally liable. Our approach is to talk about ‘why’ these requirements are in place, explain what is required to become compliant and inform the venue owners of the tax benefits available for becoming compliant. It’s a win-win.”

To access Listen Technologies’ resources regarding the current CBC revisions, please visit http://www.listentech.com/blog/california-building-code-requirements-2014/. General compliance standards outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act can be found at http://www.listentech.com/legislative-compliance/. Additional information regarding training, as well as available courses that fulfill InfoComm CTS renewal credits, can be found by visiting www.listentech.com/loop-training/.

Listen Technologies Receives 2014 InfoComm Best Of Show Award from Sound & Video Contractor, AV Technology and Pro Sound News Magazines

BLUFFDALE, UT, June 30, 2014Listen Technologies Corporation, a leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of assistive listening products, is proud to announce that it has received a 2014 InfoComm Best Of Show Award for its iDSP (Intelligent Digital Signal Processing) products from New Bay Media publications Sound & Video Contractor, AV Technology and Pro Sound News. The announcement was made on Friday, June 20, the final day of InfoComm 2014.

With thousands of new product introductions at InfoComm 2014, more than 37,000 attendees, 218 new exhibitors and nearly 200 award nominations, NewBay Media’s “Best Of Show” program helps separate the good from the great. AV Technology’s awards specifically recognize technological innovation that benefits tech managers and end users. The “Best of Show” Awards are judged by an anonymous panel of six AV/IT technology managers, AV systems integrators, and industry experts from submitted nominations. Awards criteria include ease of installation, ease of maintenance, anticipated reliable performance, richness of the feature set, relevance in the marketplace, value proposition/ROI, network friendliness, and versatility.

“To be recognized by such an esteemed group of industry experts and peers is the highest compliment one can receive,” stated Russ Gentner, Listen CEO. “InfoComm 2014 was a great show for Listen Technologies and the addition of this award is the icing on the cake.”

“We congratulate Listen Technologies on this award. We are impressed with not only the integrity of their mission but the scope and diversity of their sound solutions,” said Margot Douaihy, editor of AV Technology, EDUwire, & Tech Manager Today. “Our Best in Show judges voted in favor of the Listen Technologies iDSP RF receiver for myriad reasons: its focus on the fine details and nuances that make a great user experience; quality performance; and a surprisingly compact form-factor. Even inventory management and battery management — pain points for most tech managers & venue managers — were considered in the iDSP RF’s final design.”

ISE and Invidis to Conduct Tours Using Listen Tour Group Systems

Listen Technologies will sponsor the Invidis Digital Signage Tour and the Hosted Buyers Programme at ISE 2014 via an in-kind sponsorship of its portable tour guide solution for the third year in a row.

Bluffdale, Utah, USA—The Invidis Digital Signage Tour and the Hosted Buyers Programme at ISE 2014 will be given using portable tour guide equipment from Listen Technologies for the third year in a row. Listen’s tour group system, which transmits a tour guide’s voice directly to the tour participant’s ear, will be used to create a better personal listening experience.

The free Invidis Digital Signage tours provide overviews of a selection of various exhibitors that help participants understand the components of digital signage, including: content, screens, software, extension, totems, and audience measurement. ISE will host their preferred partners for presentations and guided tours on the show floor to visit Programme sponsor stands for an overview of their products and solutions.
“The ISE floor at RAI can be an incredibly challenging environment to effectively host our preferred partner groups from Germany at the show,” noted Stefanie Hanel, Marketing Executive, Integrated Systems Europe. “Our tours have grown every year and we know that we are able to make a good impression using the Listen audio guide system. We are most appreciative of their continued support for our success.”

Those who attend the tours will be able to hear each presentation through Listen’s tour group system, which includes a LT-700 Portable Transmitter (this includes a microphone that allows the tour guide to speak in a normal voice without having to yell). Each participant will be provided with a LR-400 Portable Digital Display FM Receiver and a LA-164 Ear Speaker. The tour guide system has a transmission range of 45.72 m (150 ft.), so that the tour guide’s voice is not subjected to strain and participants do not have to crowd in order to hear what’s being said.

“In our industry we focus on and prepare for visual content when we showcase technology. We often forget how crucial it can be to make sure that people hear the content we present to them,” stated Cory Schaeffer, Co-Founder and Vice President of Sales Worldwide, who will also be in attendance at ISE 2014. “When you combine great visuals with great audio, you create even more powerful presentations, which is what we hope to provide tour group participants at ISE by providing them with a great personal listening experience.”
