Williams AV announces the launch of the WaveCAST 8 multi-channel Wi-Fi assisted listening platform designed for use in larger assistive listening applications requiring up to 32 channels.
The latest addition to the WaveCAST family was designed for larger pro-audio applications where high-quality sound is required from streaming multichannel audio in real-time to smartphones and/or tablets. Built on a hardware-based DSP audio system architecture, WaveCAST 8 ensures system optimization to achieve the highest quality experience for the particular audio stream being delivered. Optimized for hearing loss, WaveCAST 8 provides clear speech intelligibility, musical detail and high-fidelity playback. Custom presets can also be established for specific performance applications.
The WaveCAST Series is the first-ever ADA compliant Wi-Fi assisted listening system for users who prefer not to install the WaveCAST Listening App on their personal devices or for those who what to have dedicated receivers available through ADA compliance. Easy to use, it offers a digital display and touch-screen channel selection that automatically selects the available channels and dynamically displays them on the screen.
“Williams Sound will always be about assistive listening and audio products,” says CEO and president, Rob Sheeley. “We continue to be very focused on leading the assistive listening marketplace with our growing selection of Wi-Fi assistive listening systems – the latest WaveCAST 8.”
WaveCAST 8 supports multicast network configurations. Up to four WaveCAST 8 systems can be connected to the same Wi-Fi network to provide multiple listening channels – supporting up to 1500+ users in multicast mode. A new WaveCAST app provides an easy-to-user, intuitive user interface and is available on iOS or Android. Listeners can easily select channel and volume level once connected to the network.
