Listen Technologies' solutions have brought clarity to critical sounds by overcoming the challenges of noise, distance and hearing loss

Hyannis, MA. July 11, 2013-Savant Systems, LLC has announced the addition of Listen Technologies to their PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE cooperative program. Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE initiative has been targeted to achieve global compatibility between Savant's control systems and a diverse group of best-in-class manufacturers from the audio, video, lighting control, HVAC, and security industries, as well as value-added partners from many related markets.


For more than a decade, Listen Technologies' solutions have brought clarity to critical sounds by overcoming the challenges of noise, distance and hearing loss to deliver precise and personalized audio in any environment. Listen's wireless digital conferencing products provide an enhanced audio experience for anyone attending a board meeting, conference session, or larger classroom environment. Savant recently completed development of their profile for Listen's wireless digital conferencing products, thereby making them much easier to integrate and control within the Savant platform. This new profile will dramatically cut back on software development time for integrators. Savant's control systems now provide an intuitive interface for any end-user to operate the Listen wireless conferencing systems. "We are excited to achieve compatibility with premium control solutions such as Savant to bring Listen Technologies customers a broad array of interface options," stated Tim Schaeffer, Listen Technologies VP of Strategic
Development.

Participation in Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE cooperative program will facilitate the seamless integration of Listen
Technologies' products within the Savant system environment. "Listen Technologies offers unique and respected auditory
assistance solutions and Savant is pleased to be able to deliver control compatibility with these innovative and vital products," stated
Savant's Director of Business Development Bob Ross. "We welcome Listen Technologies to our PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE
program," Ross added.

The core of Savant's technology is an open programmable platform built upon the Mac OS X operating system supporting various
communication protocols and offering high speed A/V switching, scaling and processing.

Savant's PARTNERS IN EXCELLENCE program will open new doors for participating manufacturers seeking to expand their
business in a rapidly growing industry.
