post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 



Parametric Sound Corporation is a sound technology company focused on delivering directed parametric sound solutions to customers primarily in digital signage, point-of-purchase, in-store networks and related markets that benefit from sound that can be focused and controlled in specified locations. The Company is a wholly owned subsidiary of LRAD Corporation in order to effect the separation and spin-off of its Hypersonic Sound (HSS). The Company has designed a new generation of HSS technology and produced in two initial products: HSS-3000 Twin Emitter Stereophonic and HSS-3000 Single Emitter Monaural. In January 2011, it introduced and began demonstrations of pre-production prototypes of its products, ordered tooling and began selecting suppliers with initial product deliveries. Directed sound solution includes the ability to accept various user media sources as input, typically a computer, a DVD player, mp3 player, radio, television or microphone and custom processing.

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 3, 2013) - Parametric Sound Corporation ( NASDAQ : PAMT ), a leading innovator of directed audio products and solutions, announced today a collaboration with the California Hearing & Balance Center (the "Center") to investigate health applications of the Company's HyperSound ("HSS") audio technology.

The Center recently reviewed preference testing reported by audiologists and observations from listeners speaking to the clarity and improved comprehension possible with HSS. Preference testing by third-party audiologists using the Company's HSS sound technology side-by-side with traditional audio indicated that a broad range of these listeners preferred the improved clarity of HSS. Most of these observations focused on television viewing where clarity and comprehension are important factors as people age.

"In our review of comparison testing observations, HSS appeared to provide a richer, more robust listening experience compared to traditional audio," said Dr. Ritvik Mehta at the California Hearing and Balance Center. "We are evaluating the mechanisms at work with HSS and we look forward to collaborating with Parametric and their advisors to further assess the possible benefits of and applications for HSS sound technology."

The Company and the Center have agreed to collaborate on a range of activities and studies to explore the use of HSS in personal sound amplification and in both group and individual assisted listening applications for those with normal hearing and those with various stages of hearing loss. Amongst other health applications targeted by the collaboration is the investigation of using HSS for those suffering with tinnitus.

"We are very pleased the Center has agreed to collaborate with us to help validate our technology's potential in the large health care market," said Kenneth F. Potashner, executive chairman of Parametric Sound. "We are extremely pleased with the initial observations we are seeing and look forward to pursuing potential licensing opportunities in this sector."

According to a study in a November 2011 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, hearing loss affects nearly 48 million Americans. For individuals 12 years and older in the United States, nearly 1 in 8 has bilateral hearing loss, and nearly 1 in 5 has a unilateral or bilateral hearing loss severe enough to interfere with day-to-day communication. The study further states that the prevalence of hearing loss is expected to rise because of the aging of the population. The Company believes one of the major issues experienced by the hearing impaired is lack of clarity in differentiating words from each other even with loud volume. The Company also believes its emitters may provide benefits in this area by delivering with clarity the frequencies important in speech recognition, thus improving the TV viewing experience by those with normal hearing, and by providing amplification for those with some hearing loss without the need for headphones or any coupling to the ear or body.
