— A total of 77 courtrooms will be equipped with Listen Technologies’ ListenIR IR assistive-listening systems, which will assure total separation and security between courtrooms and ease of installation and maintenance going forward —
BLUFFDALE, UT — The new 20-story, 714,000-square-foot Broward County Courthouse currently under construction in downtown Fort Lauderdale will feature 77 courtrooms once it opens later this year. What it will also offer is pristine assistive-listening audio in each one of those judicial spaces, thanks in part to the inclusion of the ListenIR IR systems from Listen Technologies Corporation, a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of assistive listening products for over 16 years. The systems, each consisting of the LT-82-01 Stationary IR Transmitter, an LA-140 Stationary IR Radiator, and LR-44 IR Lanyard 4-Channel Receivers connected to LA-165 stereo headphones, will deliver exceptional sound with twice the power, and with coverage area up to 30,000 square feet, transmitting clear, focused audio directly to the intended audience — and no one else — with quick and easy installation and maintenance. The ListenIR systems were specified for the new Broward County Courthouse by AV systems consultancy Marsh/PMK International, and are being installed by AV systems integrator Pro Sound, Inc.’s Miami office.
“The Listen Technologies IR system is a great fit for a project like this,” observes Dave Stearns, Senior Consultant with Marsh / PMK International. “IR is the best solution for security for the kind of information that’s divulged in courtrooms, compared to RF solutions, which can spill between walls. IR keeps the audio contained within each individual space.”
Stearns says the Listen Technologies’ ListenIR solution, which was chosen by the County as part of the bid process and which has been used in other Broward County municipal spaces, offers the best sound of any assistive-listening system on the market. “What I especially like about Listen’s products is that they’re always improving them to make them perform even better, compared to other brands that tend to offer the same things year after year,” he says. “And with Listen I can get all the components I need for a system with a single SKU, which really simplifies the specification and ordering processes. I’ve been working with Listen Technologies products for fifteen years or more, and the performance is what you need in a critical installation like a courthouse — totally reliable and great sounding.”
