LISNR Honored in 2 Mobile-App Categories at 2016 Webby Awards

LISNR Honored in 2 Mobile-App Categories at 2016 Webby Awards

We’re excited to announce that LISNR’s team has been named an honoree in two mobile-app categories at the 2016 Webby Awards!  We’re a 3rd time honoree.

The 20th annual awards that honor “the best of the Internet” were announced in late April and presented May 16. LISNR was among the honorees in the categories of Integrated Mobile Experience and Best Use of GPS or Location Technology.

LISNR’s data-over-audio technology — using audio that’s readable by devices but inaudible to humans — can deliver revolutionary connectivity, information and experiences to users without being burdened by the scaling issues that affect Wi-Fi and cellular signals and the distance limits faced with Bluetooth. For example, LISNR can send relevant, timely information such as access to video replays to every person in a sports stadium or offer schedule updates and concessions discounts for attendees at a music festival.

This isn’t LISNR’s first recognition from the Webbys — its app for the Budweiser Made In America music festival was an honoree last year, and its J. Cole “Born Sinner” Listening Session was honored in 2014.

We’re so proud of the team for its good work and growing recognition.

LISNR is a new communication protocol that sends data over audio using inaudible sound waves called SmartTones™.  These customizable packets of data can enable proximity data transmission, second-screen functionality, authentication and low-fi device-to-device connectivity on any LISNR-enabled device.  We enable this functionality better and more efficiently than Bluetooth (proximity), ACR (second Screen), and NFC/RFID (authentication). Contact us to learn more.

Look Who’s on the Cover of Black Enterprise!

Look Who’s on the Cover of Black Enterprise!

Say hello to “The Next Big Name In Tech” — Black Enterprise magazine says it’s LISNR and our CEO and co-founder, Rodney Williams!

Williams graces the cover of the May 2016 issue of the magazine, and is featured in the corresponding article that profiles several entrepreneurs who are making use of cutting-edge technology.

The magazine cites proximity marketing — letting retailers deliver content, information and experiences direct to consumers’ devices wherever they are — as one of the promising applications for LISNR’s data-over-audio technology. Williams notes that a major update is on the way that is likely to significantly expand the protocol’s capabilities to areas including contactless payments and other transactions, security, and transportation by helping “devices connect in the world’s most complicated environments.”

The article also cites the successful demonstration of LISNR’s device-to-device connectivity at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and Williams’ hope to have LISNR become an alternative to Bluetooth and other short-range connectivity protocols.
