Directed sound can replace headphones in many applications to communicate information about a display directly so only those interested in the information will hear it without disturbing others.
Gone are the days of our grandparent's vending machines. Today, they're becoming increasingly sophisticated, with more user-friendly interactivity. Marketers and advertisers realize the benefit of hosting exciting opportunities on the face of a vending machine. That is why audio interaction focused on the consumer, like HyperSound, is an effective use of directed audio.
Electronic Gaming Equipment (slot machines)
Increasingly sophisticated slot machines that display video and advertising are ideal applications for HyperSound -focused directed sound solutions. Watch as passing by patrons are pulled in and attracted by HyperSound. Once there, players will hear the machines they are using and not adjacent game play. This helps keep them interested in what's right in front of them. Game play and the level of fun are both significantly enhanced.

Trade shows are full of video, but the noise level requires sound to be eliminated from individual displays. Parametric's HyperSound offers an ability to communicate information at the precise point of interest without polluting the entire exhibit space.
Movies and Cinema
HyperSound is expected to have future applications in the entertainment industry including movie theaters, music venues and more.
We plan to scale our technology for larger environments for use in cinemas. There are approximately 40,000 movie screens in the United States according to the National Association of Theater Owners.
There is growing adoption in both mature and emerging markets of new mobile platforms for consumer and business use of digital content, such as tablets and smartphones.
Currently sound from mobile devices is of poor quality and low volume. This requires users to use headphones to hear the audio. HyperSound technology can be used to direct sound to a single listener. This gives the user a higher quality private experience without the use of headphones.
Because of Parametric Sound's amazing innovations, new uses for directed sound are constantly being tested and expanded, plus new product designs are opening unique special markets. As HyperSound directed audio improves sound quality and improved volume, new applications for directed audio not previously possible with earlier versions of the product line will begin to emerge. Check back often to see where Parametric Sound is taking the future of sound.
