BLUFFDALE, UT, June 13, 2014 — Listen Technologies Corporation (InfoComm booth C10339), a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of assistive listening products, and U.S. distributor of Ampetronic, the world-leading provider of audio induction loop systems for assisting individuals with hearing loss, together announce a new product release at InfoComm 2014. Ampetronic will be releasing “Loopworks,” a package of tools and systems with fully integrated expert support that will transform working with hearing loops at all levels. In April 2012 Listen Technologies partnered with Ampetronic to distribute Hearing Loop solutions to customers in the Americas.
At the heart of Loopworks is an online interface that gives rapid access to a suite of knowledge and tools, including measurement systems, design tools, training materials, an Ampetronic knowledge base and rapid access to support for your projects.
At InfoComm 2014 Ampetronic is demonstrating the first module of Loopworks to go live, a completely new and automated test and measurement platform “Loopworks Measure.” Measure combines a smartphone or tablet app with a self-calibrating probe to measure the magnetic fields generated by hearing loop systems.
A back-end web tool automates the process of collecting data, creating certification or test reports and direct access to support from loop experts. Measure brings together excellent value, high performance measurement, and ease of use to create a new end-to-end hearing loop measurement system.
The new system can operate both as a very sophisticated test platform when installing loop systems, and as a very cost effective tool for regular monitoring and maintenance by venue operators or maintenance companies. Much greater adoption of high quality measurement will improve the chance of delivering high quality loop systems for the long term.
Ampetronic is also opening a Beta trial for its Loopworks Designer. Loopworks Designer is a tool for the design, analysis and output of induction loop designs. Used and developed by Ampetronic and its customers over 25 years, Designer is a highly established and proven design tool bringing the best of Ampetronic’s methodologies into the hands of specifiers and contractors.
As Designer makes a transition to an online tool within Loopworks, Ampetronic is inviting participants to join the Beta testing phase. Interested parties can sign up at the Listen booth (C10339) to get exclusive early access to the new tools, as well as the chance to access the Loopworks knowledge base and training materials.
