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.

Loop Utah Movement Underway with Support from Listen Technologies

Listen Technologies joined Loop Utah in September to Kick-Off the Loop Utah Movement at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Festival.

Salt Lake City, Utah, USA—Listen Technologies joined other hearing loss advocates at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Festival for the kick-off of the statewide movement to get Hearing Loops installed in public spaces throughout Utah.

The Loop Utah Movement is dedicated bringing more awareness to the subject of hearing loss by educating Utah communities about assistive listening systems, in particular Hearing Loops, which provide individuals with hearing loss a better way to experience what they fully deserve when they visit public places like churches, theatres, museums, auditoriums, and concert venues.

As a co-sponsor of the event, Listen installed two temporary Hearing Loops, one around the main stage for presentations and a smaller one at their own booth to demonstrate the technology to visitors. A Hearing Loop, also known as an Induction Loop or T-Loop, is an assistive listening system that provides access to facilities for those with hearing loss. It takes a sound source and transfers it directly to a hearing aid without background noise.

The increasing popularity of Hearing Loops has seen a steady increase in the inclusion of telecoils in hearing aids. At present just under 70% of hearing aid models on the market are fitted with them. This number is as high as 95% in countries where Hearing Loops are already established, and all new model cochlear implants now offer telecoils.

“I am involved with Loop Utah, because I believe in the technology,” says Dr. Lobdell, Loop Utah Steering Committee Chair. “My passion for loop technology began early in my career when my hard of hearing grandmother explained how a loop system allowed her to continue to participate in church services, which made me wonder why the technology wasn’t available in more places.”

Loop Utah planning meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Sanderson Community Center. For more details on what you can do to be a part of the movement visit www.looputah.org.

AV Week Proclamations Issued by Governor Herbert and Mayor McAdams

InfoComm members’ petitions to the State of Utah and the County of Salt Lake to issue proclamations have been realized.

Bluffdale, Utah, USA — Listen Technologies Corporation today announced that the week of October 13-19, 2013, has been proclaimed “AV Week” by Utah Governor Gary Herbert and Salt Lake County Ben McAdams. Both proclamations state the impact of the audiovisual industry on everyday lives, noting AV applications in architecture, medicine, government proceedings, education, entertainment and business.

“The audiovisual industry affects everyone, every day” said Cory Schaeffer, Vice President of Sales Worldwide at Listen. “Anytime you walk into a school, church, theater, sports arena, shopping center, government office or other public venue, AV equipment is present to give you directions, help you hear better, enhance your visual experience, and improve communication with others.”

“It was my pleasure to sign the AV Week proclamation” commented Governor Herber as he met with InfoComm members. “The proclamation was a good reminder of the importance of AV in business and our daily lives.”

AV Week is presented by InfoComm International, a worldwide association serving the audiovisual industry. The association offers regular training and support to its members and sponsors the annual InfoComm trade show, which attracted over 50,000 attendees in 2013. InfoComm members in the State of Utah representing 40 companies and individuals include manufacturers, AV consulting and design firms, system integrators, and end users.

To raise awareness of AV Week, Schaeffer petitioned the State of Utah and the County of Salt Lake to issue proclamations. “We wanted Utahans to see how many companies in the state are involved with audiovisual technologies,” she said. “The AV industry is very healthy in Utah and benefits our economy not only through the technologies that are available, but also through job creation and revenues.”

Listen Technologies, along with other AV companies in Utah, will be participating in and hosting several events during AV Week (October 13 – 19, 2013). GENCOMM is planning their annual Tech Show on October 16 and Avidex is planning a Technology Tour of the new Adobe building on October 17.

Dr. Anne Lobdell Appointed as the Chair of the Loop Utah Steering Committee

Audiologist, Dr. Anne Lobdell, will chair the Loop Utah Steering Committee, which serves to educate venues about hearing loop technology throughout the State of Utah to enrich the experiences of their Hard of Hearing visitors.

Salt Lake City, Utah, USA—Dr. Anne Lobdell, an audiologist who has been practicing for more than ten years, is now the Chair of the Loop Utah Steering Committee. The Loop Utah Movement is dedicated to educating Utah venues about the many benefits of hearing loop technology. Hearing loops deliver sound to an individual’s t-coil equipped hearing aid or cochlear implants wirelessly. This empowers hearing-impaired individuals who visit public spaces and venues of all types can enjoy a clear, immersive listening experience that they could otherwise not receive.

“I am involved with Loop Utah, because I believe in the technology,” says Dr. Lobdell. “My passion for loop technology began early in my career when my hard of hearing grandmother explained how a loop system allowed her to continue to participate in church services, which made me wonder why the technology wasn’t available in more places.”

The Loop Utah Steering Committee’s goals are to build more awareness in and around the State of Utah on how prevalent hearing loss is and to work to get all types of venues, whether they are places of worship, theaters, businesses or sports arenas, to understand the need for assistive listening (especially hearing loop) technologies.

“Through education of the community, government, health care professionals, and the hard of hearing population, we can improve the lives of those living with hearing loss. They can return to fully enjoying activities that they may have abandoned due to difficulties stemming from hearing loss and diminished hearing and communication capabilities,” Dr. Lobdell added.

The Loop Utah Steering Committee’s ultimate vision is to make Utah a model state where t-coil and cochlear implant users can take full advantage of assistive listening systems, such as hearing loops.

The group will focus its main efforts on advocacy for the individuals who are hard of hearing. This will include education on how to approach venues about hearing loop technology, and what to do if a venue doesn’t offer assistive listening technologies at all.

“I am honored to chair the Loop Utah Steering Committee. Working with such a dedicated and passionate group of individuals to push the Loop Utah Movement forward has already been exceptional. Through the collaboration and creativity of the Steering Committee, the ability to bring this technology to the community has never been so promising,” concludes Dr. Lobdell.

The kickoff event for the Loop Utah Movement, proudly sponsored by Listen Technologies, will take place at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Festival on September 21, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Sanderson Community Center. The event is free and open to the public.

Education Sponsorship Provides K-20 Students the Opportunity to Attend the Women Tech Awards

Listen Technologies joins Utah businesses in support of the Women Tech Council’s commitment in nurturing students’ interest in science and technology careers.

Listen Technologies is proud to announce its participation in the Education Sponsorship program for the upcoming Women Tech Awards. The Women Tech Awards, directed by the Women Tech Council (WTC), recognizes women who are leading technology companies, promoting innovation in their industry, and are making contributions to the community.

Over the past six years, the WTC has had the opportunity to honor 90 amazing women working in various technology fields and 15 university students. They’ve also sponsored over 100 high school students for the awards in order to inspire the next generation of young women.

Current Education sponsors include; Patent Law Works LLP, Holland & Hart LLP, Nelson Laboratories, Listen Technologies, Symantec, and Truenorthlogic.

When asked why it was important to be an Education Sponsor for the Women Tech Awards, Schaeffer stated, “I wanted to make it easier for young women to attend the Women Tech awards. I’m a firm believer that when these young women see and interact with the many women who’ve been nominated for awards, as well as, have the opportunity to network with other women in technical fields, they’ll see a career path for themselves in technology. The technology field needs and wants more talented, smart, young women and there’s no better way to get them involved than getting them to attend WTC events.”

Halle Veysey, a student at Lone Peak High School noted, “This year I plan to start my own club at Lone Peak High School to interest female students in science and technology. I want to spread the word to other teens that a career in technology can be fun and exciting.”

The Sixth Annual Women Tech Awards will honor 17 women in the technology field. The Women Tech Council is looking to continue its success of hosting over 125 STEM students at the awards. The awards will be announced at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 12, 2013 at a luncheon.
