Listen Technologies & Ampetronic Debut AURI

Share preview of first installed Auracast broadcast audio-based solution for assistive listening.


2 February 2024

Listen Technologies and Ampetronic debuted AURI today at ISE 2024. AURI, powered by Listen Technologies and Ampetronic, is the first installed assistive listening system utilising Auracast broadcast audio technology. The new system will ship later this year.

Auracast Broadcast Audio

Auracast is a new standard for Bluetooth Low Energy audio. It can broadcast audio simultaneously to an unlimited number of Auracast compatible devices, including receivers, hearing aids, earbuds, and smartphones.

Auracast is part of the new Bluetooth Low Energy audio specifications. This is the first time Bluetooth has supported broadcast audio, which unlocks a variety of new use cases, including wide area assistive listening.

Listen Technologies and Ampetronic are active members of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) working to make Auracast broadcast audio technology as reliable and widespread as possible.

AURI – The Evolution of Assistive Listening

AURI, powered by Listen Technologies and Ampetronic, is the first Auracast broadcast audio-based solution for assistive listening.

“Auracast broadcast audio technology will enable Auracast compatible devices to connect to transmitters in public spaces and receive high quality, low latency, energy-efficient audio, but it will take time for all devices to support Auracast,” said Tracy Bathurst, chief technology officer at Listen Technologies. “Listen Technologies and Ampetronic have developed the first solution to let venues and end users adopt Auracast broadcast audio technology for assistive listening applications. AURI harnesses the power of Bluetooth Low Energy so venues and end users can enjoy improved audio accessibility and better hearing.”

AURI is the first product Listen Technologies and Ampetronic have developed together since the companies announced their partnership and creation of a single source for assistive listening technologies and solutions.

AURI will include networked installed transmitters for large and small spaces, dedicated receivers and charging bases, and a complete line of accessories, including headphones, neck loops, and network management and configuration software.

AURI will

  • Provide high quality multi-channel broadcast
  • Support open or secure audio transmission
  • Feature Auracast compatible dedicated receivers venues can provide guests to use if they do not have Auracast compatible devices
  • Offer multi-language support
  • Help venues meet global accessibility compliance requirements

AURI will ship later this year.
