Sanderson Centers Become First Two Public Buildings in Utah to Install Hearing Loop Systems

Hearing Loop systems from Listen Technologies provide crystal clear sound for visitors to the Sanderson Center who need assistive listening.

SALT LAKE CITY—Nov. 13, 2013—The Robert G. Sanderson Community Center of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Taylorsville and its satellite office in St. George became the first two public buildings in the state of Utah to install new Hearing Loop systems from Listen Technologies. The Hearing Loop systems enable visitors with hearing loss who need assistive listening to receive crystal clear audio signals directly through their T-Coil hearing aids, cochlear implants or Hearing Loop receivers.

“As a government program that serves deaf and hard of hearing people, we strive to provide the best assistive listening technology available,” said Marilyn Call, Executive Director of the Sanderson Community Center. “Historically, we have focused on providing RF assistive listening systems, because even though hearing loop technology has been around for a while, we have been underwhelmed with its performance until recently. I am hard of hearing myself, so I fully understand the importance of quality sound and I can say that the new hearing loop system we have installed in the Sanderson Center and in our St. George location provides phenomenal clarity of sound. I can’t overstate how important that is for increasing understanding.”

A Hearing Loop system consists of a thin wire that is installed (usually under the carpet or in the ceiling) around the listening area. This wire is connected into an amplifier and microphone. Speech, music and other audio signals from the microphone are amplified and sent through the wire. This creates an electromagnetic field in the looped area. The T-Coil in a hearing aid or cochlear implant picks up the electromagnetic signal and allows the listener to hear a clear signal directly through the hearing aid.

The Hearing Loop systems were installed in a large classroom and at two reception counters–one at the front desk and one in the Technology Demo Lab at the Community Center. In the St. George building, the conference room area was looped—this area is used for trainings, meetings, presentations, and conference discussions.

Call said she uses hearing aids that work well in quiet, one-on-one conversations, but fail at public meetings and events. “I want to be engaged in life, but that is hard to do if I can’t hear clearly,” she said. “I am now a big fan of hearing loops and I want all hard of hearing people to experience the ease and quality of sound provided by loop technology. At the Sanderson Center we want to lead the way in having looped rooms for hard of hearing people to use when they come to events and classes. We invite all people with hearing aids to come and try it out. Beyond that, we also strongly encourage other venues, public and private, to look into hearing loop technology. Listen is bringing attention to this cause and other businesses may join the movement soon as well.”

The Hearing Loop installation also enables the Sanderson Centers to be compliant with the current Americans with Disabilities Act requirements for assistive listening. Three technologies are available for venues, including government buildings, to meet ADA compliance: radio frequency (RF), infrared (IR) and Hearing Loop. RF and IR systems transmit signals over radio waves or infrared signals to an individual through a receiver and earphones. Hearing Loop systems, however, are becoming the preferred technology for assistive listening because no receivers or earphones are required to obtain the signal, as the signals are transmitted directly to an individual’s T-Coil equipped hearing aid or cochlear implant.

Broadway’s Gershwin Theater in New York Installs Hearing Loop from Listen Technologies

New York City—Nov. 6, 2013—Broadway’s celebrated Gershwin Theater is providing a more immersive experience for all its patrons by installing a hearing loop system from Listen Technologies. The hearing loop system enables audience members who need assistive listening to receive crystal clear audio signals directly through their T-Coil hearing aids, cochlear implants or Hearing Loop receiver.

Bill Register, director of facilities and theater management for Nederlander, which operates the Gershwin Theater and eight other theaters in New York said, “The Gershwin Theater recently underwent a renovation with new seats and carpet. With the 10th anniversary of ‘Wicked’ upon us, we felt now was an opportune time to provide a different kind of upgrade to the theater. Being installed under the carpet, the hearing loop is invisible to the eyes, but for our patrons with hearing loss, the giant leap in clarity of sound is literally music to their ears.”

In order for hearing loops to be effective, an audience member must have a hearing aid equipped with a telecoil or “T-Coil”, which at the press of a button receives a signal. Nearly 70 percent of hearing aids today are equipped with a t-coil and all new cochlear implants come with T-Coil. The entire Gershwin theater, including the orchestra and upper mezzanine, is looped so no matter where a patron is seated in the theater, the signal will be as clear—or even better—than if they were sitting in the front row.

The hearing loop system from Listen Technologies was installed by Leo Garrison of Metro Sound Pros, who has installed several other hearing loop systems throughout New York including museums, tour busses, taxi cabs and other Broadway theaters. The hearing loop installation also enables the Gershwin Theater to be compliant with the current ADA requirements for assistive listening. Three technologies are available for venues to meet ADA compliance: radio frequency (RF), infrared (IR) and hearing loop. RF and IR systems transmit signals over radio waves or infrared signals to an individual through a receiver and earphones. Hearing loop systems, however, are becoming the preferred technology for assistive listening because no receivers or earphones are required to obtain the signal, its transmitted directly to an individual’s T-Coil equipped hearing aid or cochlear implant.

Hearing loop systems are ideal for a number of venues including:
• Airports
• Ticket counters and information booths
• Banquet halls
• Board rooms and large meeting rooms
• Court rooms
• Cruise ships
• Doctors’ offices and pharmacy counters
• Drive thru and pick up windows
• Elevators, trains and buses
• Museums
• Places of worship
• School auditoriums
• Sports facilities
• Theaters and performing arts centers

Sam Nord of Listen Technologies to Present at HLAA of San Francisco

Sam Nord of Listen Technologies will be delivering a presentation on legislative compliance and assistive listening technologies to the San Francisco chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) on November 9, 2013.

Salt Lake City, Utah, USA— Sam Nord of Listen Technologies will be visiting the San Francisco Chapter meeting of the Hearing Loss Association of America on November 9, 2013 to present on assistive listening technologies with an emphasis on Hearing Loop. Nord’s presentation will focus on the latest updates to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards and how these updates apply to assistive listening systems, including Hearing Loops.

The presentation will also address trends in hearing aids, what venues need to know about accommodating people with hearing loss, why Hearing Loop is the preferred assistive listening technology and the growing Loop America movement.

Hearing Loops deliver direct and personalized sound to people with smart hearing aids (hearing aids equipped with telecoils) and people with cochlear implants by working with an individuals’ settings on their device.

“I am extremely honored and excited to have the opportunity to present to the San Francisco Chapter of the HLAA to discuss the latest technologies to improve hearing and communication, as well as to inform those in the hearing loss community of the latest updates to ADA law as it regards the requirements for assistive listening systems,” said Nord. In March of 2012, the changes that were made to the ADA related to assistive listening in 2010 went into full effect. These changes state that an assistive listening system must be provided in each assembly area where audible communication is integral to the use of the space. Hearing Loops are a type of assistive listening system.

Hearing Loops, which are quite common overseas, are just starting to gain more popularity in the US due to better installation standards. “It is always a pleasure to be able to discuss technologies like Hearing Loops, because they can drastically improve the quality of people’s lives,” noted Kenny Andrews, President SF Chapter HLAA. “We appreciate Sam’s willingness to meet with our group.” The presentation will be given on Saturday, November 9 at 10:30 a.m. at the San Francisco Chapter meeting at The Sequoias, 1400 Geary Boulevard, San Francisco, CA. The presentation is free and open to the public.

McCune Audio Video Adds Wireless Conferencing System from Listen Technologies to Rental Inventory

Listen Technologies Corporation today announced that McCune Audio Video and Lighting in San Francisco, Calif. purchased nearly three dozen Wireless Conferencing units from Listen Technologies as a rental option for its client base.

The wireless conferencing system is available for McCune Audio Video clients who need flexible, multi-use sound capabilities in meetings. It allows meeting participants to hear and interact in meetings without waiting for a “hand held” microphone to be passed to them or having them step up to a podium. The system is ideal for challenging locations such as historical buildings, corporate multi-purpose rooms, as well as hotel banquet halls and hospitality rooms.

“We have been looking for a wireless solution of this high quality, reliability and technical flexibility for several years,” said Allan McCune President of McCune Audio Video and Lighting. “We added the new Listen Technologies wireless conferencing units to our rental inventory because of its ease of use and set up, strong coverage and excellent battery life. The high level of interaction as well as the ability to hear others makes this system extremely desirable for corporate events. Often when a group is larger, you see less interaction than you’d like. With the use of this new system, meetings can be productive without straining to hear or waiting to speak. Our clients are thrilled with the quality of sound as well as the labor and cost savings in the set up and removal.”

The system is a complete personal sound system and provides up to 36 or more users with their own microphone and speaker positioned directly in front of each participant. This makes it possible for any meeting to become interactive and invites participation from all meeting attendees because every participant can listen and speak with total clarity to the entire room. Their voices are easily heard through the other units as well as the overall public address system if desired. The flexibility of the wireless system is a major strength, allowing easy set up and take-down with the option to adapt on the fly to any room’s configuration. The 20-hour battery life and multi-frequency format ensures units will make it through the most demanding meetings and environments. Meeting participation can also easily be recorded for later reference for meeting attendees or for those who could not attend the meeting.
