SAN FRANCISCO — LISNR, the world’s most advanced ultrasonic protocol and an emerging leader in the Internet of Sound, has been named to the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 Innovation Awards list as an honoree in the Software and Mobile Apps category. This is the first year LISNR has received this honor, following its 2016 technology advancements allowing best-in-class data throughput and the launch of 2-way device to device functionality.

Each year, the CES Innovation Awards give consumer technology manufacturers and developers an opportunity to have their newest products judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade press.

LISNR is an inaudible secure ultrasonic protocol that sends data over audio. The company produces inaudible sound waves called Smart Tones™ to transmit data. LISNR transmits customizable packets of data every second that enable proximity data transmission, second-screen functionality, authentication and device to device connectivity on any device by just using sound & software.

LISNR has huge implications in the world of authentication and the world of connected devices alongside the Internet of Things. As a secure and efficient offline method of data transmission, LISNR can identify, authenticate and transmit data to enable any functionality within our data threshold and serve as offline security gateway to additional protocols. Whether LISNR is used as a standalone protocol or the Internet of Things’ security gateway, LISNR is poised to be a standard amongst the growing ecosystem of connectivity.
