LRAD® Corporation Expands ONE VOICE® Mass Notification Product Line with LRAD DS-60X and LRAD DS-60XL
SAN DIEGO, CA – April 11, 2017 – LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world’s leading provider of acoustic hailing devices (“AHDs”) and advanced mass notification systems, today announced two additions to the Company’s ONE VOICE product line, the LRAD DS-60X and the LRAD DS-60XL.
Built for outdoor mass notification and public address applications, both systems broadcast voice messages and alert tones in scalable 60° – 360° coverage patterns with the exceptional vocal clarity and intelligibility featured in all LRAD systems. The LRAD DS-60XL incorporates LRAD’s XL driver technology, which generates greater audio output for up to 38% more mass notification area coverage.
“We are expanding our mass notification product line to offer more broadcast area coverage and price options for our growing customer base,” commented Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. “With scalable area coverage and ease of configuration and installation, the LRAD DS-60X and LRAD DS-60XL provide highly intelligible, cost effective public address and emergency communication for campuses, industrial plants, military bases and other large complexes.”
The LRAD DS-60X has a 650-meter range. This rugged acoustic horn system is efficient, low power, and built for permanent outdoor installation. For more information, please click on LRAD DS-60X.
Powered by LRAD’s proprietary XL driver technology, the LRAD DS-60XL has a 900-meter range and the same form factor as the LRAD DS-60X. When configured in a 360° ring array, the broadcast coverage area extends to 2.5 sq. kilometers. For more information, please click on LRAD DS-60XL.
LRAD’s compact, high-efficiency amplifier cabinet powers both systems and includes an Ethernet based audio streaming device that supplies crystal clear live voice or prerecorded message transmission across a TCP/IP network. The Ethernet interface provides flexible communication and control for simple systems integration with IP enabled networks that modernizes mass notification installations and eliminates audio hissing and crackling.
