Marketwired

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2013) - Parametric Sound Corporation (NASDAQ: PAMT), a leading innovator of audio products and solutions, today announced that its proprietary audio technology is being marketed to and evaluated by banks and hardware providers and consultants within the retail banking sector.

HyperSound allows banks to transform their branches by enhancing their digital place-based media with customized audio, and supports their efforts to strengthen brand loyalty and cross-sell product offerings. HyperSound-enabled digital signage can be placed in many areas within and around the bank to engage banking customers. Potential locations currently being evaluated by the sector include the entry, foyer, teller and private client areas, drive-throughs, and ATM locations. The Company believes ongoing banking pilot installations demonstrate the ability to enhance customer engagement at these types of locations. HyperSound allows a banking institution to deliver audio to specific, targeted areas without creating sound bleed into adjacent zones.

"Enhancing digital signage with directional audio offers a compelling product bundle," said Todd Savitt, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Parametric Sound. "We are aggressively pursuing opportunities that enable banks to engage with customers quickly and with more effective and diverse messages. Our focus on the banking sector follows positive reception we have received in retail and restaurant sectors of the large and rapidly growing digital signage market."

HyperSound delivers high fidelity audio in a directional beam using thin sound emitters -- a radical innovation in speaker technology. Currently used in commercial applications including retail digital signage, the innovative technology is expected to have transformative applications in video game audio, personal computers, mobile devices, televisions and home theater. The Company's patented and patent-pending technology continues to demonstrate positive results for those with hearing deficiencies and shows strong potential for future health care applications.
