Listen Technologies Corporation, the Bluffdale, Utah-based provider of advanced wireless listening solutions, has added to its Listen EVERYWHERE product line a new Listen EVERYWHERE server with Dante onboard.
Per the company, the LW-150P-02-D Listen EVERYWHERE two-channel server has a Dante input on the rear panel. This enables easy routing and management of Listen EVERYWHERE audio on a network via Dante Controller, the easy-to-use software from Audinate.
The company states that Dante replaces point-to-point audio connections with easy-to-use networking. Administrators can thus route high-quality audio on networks using intuitive Dante software. Additionally, networked audio systems using Dante deliver superior audio performance, are flexible, and are less expensive to deploy. Dante enables robust monitoring, user access controls, and integrates existing IT infrastructure and processes.
Features of New Server
Meanwhile, Listen EVERYWHERE is Listen Technologies’ audio over Wi-Fi solution. It streams audio over a Wi-Fi network to personal smart devices or the LWR-1020 receiver currently available in the U.S. The smart devices thus function as receivers for the assistive listening system. In venues offering Listen EVERYWHERE, guests can listen to the audio from their smartphones using headphones or earbuds. They also can stream sound directly to Bluetooth-enabled headphones or hearing aids.
The new server is also available in the U.S. in a bundled ADA compliant assistive listening system SKU (LWS-10-D). This includes the Dante-enabled two-channel server, rack mount kit, two LWR-1020 receivers, two protective cases for the receivers, two neck loops, two ear speakers, and a signage kit.
“Guests love Listen EVERYWHERE because it provides equal access to audio and allows for an inclusive experience,” says Cody Hall, product manager for Listen Technologies. “Venues appreciate that Listen EVERYWHERE allows their guests to have the same great experience and that the system is simple to set up and operate. The new Dante-enabled server makes it even easier for administrators to manage audio and equipment across the network.”
Listen Technologies adds that the Listen EVERYWHERE server with onboard Dante is compatible with all Dante-enabled products. The two-channel server is also available without Dante. Both servers offer the lowest latency in the industry and are easy for venues to install on their existing wireless networks.
“The new Listen EVERYWHERE server with Dante is another example of Listen Technologies listening to and incorporating partner and customer feedback into its solutions. The system is truly plug-and-play for administrators and delivers outstanding audio quality for end-users,” added Sam Nord, vice president of global sales, Listen Technologies.
How Listen EVERYWHERE Works
Listen EVERYWHERE works on either an existing or a separate wireless network. The Listen EVERYWHERE server sets up easily and broadcasts any audio across the network over Wi-Fi to smart devices. Venue operators can customize the Listen EVERYWHERE app with welcome videos/ads, brand colors, sliding banners, and logos.
To access Listen EVERYWHERE for assistive listening, guests download the free Listen EVERYWHERE app on their smartphone. They can then select their preferred venue audio channel and hear clear audio in their headphones via their devices.
Listen EVERYWHERE is ideal for classrooms, theatres, museums, houses of worship, lecture halls, corporate boardrooms and conference rooms, etc. It is also suitable for other spaces where hearing loss, noise, distance and acoustics makes it difficult to hear clearly.
The LW-150P-02-D server with Dante onboard is available in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia. Additionally, the LWS-10-D Dante-enabled system with LWR-1020 receivers is available in the U.S.
