Enhance shopper experience and boost in-store sales

HyperSound® Pro Audio creates targeted audio zones, allowing retailers to add audio content to kiosks and displays without sound bleed. Retailers have long faced many challenges when implementing audio in their in-store messaging campaigns. For example, wayfinding kiosks or looping promotional displays are typically kept silent because conventional loudspeakers produce audio at uncomfortable levels—and allow sound to spread in all directions. This type of audio tends to be perceived as intrusive noise by retail customers. It also frustrates employees, who struggle to ignore audio that bleeds into their workspace all day long. The solution? HyperSound® HSS300 – an innovative system that can control the footprint of audio, creating virtual reality sound zones without bleeding into nearby areas.

Digital Signage

College Football Hall of Fame digital signage

Double the impact of your marketing messages.

Digital displays that show programming, menus, or advertising are found in hotels, supermarkets, airports, banks, and increasingly in retail stores. Controlled remotely, they are used to grab audiences with a visual medium. Adding HyperSound® HSS300 to include directed audio can more than double the impact of marketing communications.

Savvy retailers and other marketers are catching on to the power gained when messages can deliver sound to targeted patrons, reducing ambient noise clutter, with minimal disruption of commerce.

Sometimes known as dynamic signage or narrowcasting or electronic signage, digital signage incorporating HyperSound® HSS300 is one of the most effective sources for providing information, advertising and marketing messaging that can be changed instantly.

Retail, corporate and transportation, as well as other sectors such as health care and hospitality are rapidly adopting this technology.

Digital Signage is powerful yet cost-effective.

Today’s solutions support remote manageability, energy efficiency and enough performance for advanced capabilities such as anonymous video analytics (for audience metrics and enhanced ROIs), and the ability to process and blend rich media content.

Explore the flexibility and cost-effectiveness digital signage can provide compared to traditional media, i.e., content can be changed remotely; customers can be targeted more accurately.

No other marketing media can match the value proposition that digital signage delivers: the ability to reach a mass audience with such a high level of flexibility in creative, placement, cost and (with the addition of audience metrics) proven performance. As the market data are already showing, that value proposition is a winner.

Boost sales by jumping on the digital sign revolution.

Digital signage can reach large audiences in a targeted way at a point where it really matters: at the point of sale or, at a very minimum, when consumers can easily alter their travel plans to go to a point of sale.

Many airports have digital kiosks that allow nearby merchants and others can use to advertise to travelers and patrons within the airport. These digital signs display content rich video and animation can be shown, and the signs can adapt to the context and audience — even use an interactive application on large LCD touch screens.

Add to this, a growing sophistication in how brands want to manage the consumer experience. Brands want to deliver interactive, personalized and enjoyable experiences to end-customers wherever they are located, on whatever device they are using or seeing or interacting with. Digital signage is a critical medium for making this happen.

Kiosk & POS

Best Buy Kiosk

Simply the finest sound you can buy for your business

Kiosks (both static and interactive) are an effective place to use directed sound — as a part of the move to reduce employees and allow customers the ease of self-checkout from grocery stores to fast food outlets. Computerized kiosks also offer helpful product information to consumers. Add HyperSound® Pro Audio to the mix and increase customer engagement.

Using directed sound at kiosks and point-of-sale (POS) terminals provides many marketing and informational advantages:

  • Directly and clearly communicating to your user
  • Increasing privacy and reducing the effect of ambient noise
  • Allow multiple adjacent devices to have the same or different messages

Outside the shopping environment, interactive kiosks and related computer terminals power applications for communication, commerce, entertainment, and education.

According to ABI Research, the number of interactive kiosks deployed globally will rise from 1.6 million in 2011 to nearly 3 million in 2016. The HyperSound® HSS300 is a proven solution that increases sales and dwell time across a broad range of consumers1.

Recreate a headphone effect, without headphones!

Binaural sound reproduction uses a special microphone arrangement to capture sound to mimic sound at each ear and is intended for replay using headphones. Generally a bust with outer ears captures sound directionality. To reproduce the effect and spatial confusion the crosstalk between speakers must be eliminated which is why binaural sound traditionally is only practical with headphones.

The HyperSound® HSS300 can recreate an effect beyond headphones by directing sound to each ear. Beaming stereo content “in-the-air” from just two ultrasonic emitters (the speakers in traditional audio systems) creates a distinct and robust immersive sound image not possible with headphones or costly and complex surround sound systems. Crosstalk is eliminated when HSS is positioned properly (for example in front of a listener at a computer or TV screen). And special recordings are not necessary – standard stereo output creates startling immersive spatial enjoyment. HyperSound® HSS300’s immersive directed audio enhances standard stereo output to produce a robust immersive sound image to complement any video, audio, and mobile devices.
