SAN DIEGO, Nov. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (Nasdaq:LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), today announced the availability of the LRAD® 360Xm, a highly intelligible compact product designed for shorter distances and defined spaces. This product meets the customer demand for a smaller version of the 360X in the mass notification and emergency warning system markets.
The 360Xm expands LRAD's product footprint while safely delivering voice and emergency broadcasts with LRAD's unsurpassed clarity and range with uniform 360 degree coverage. The 360Xm provides highly intelligible live voice or prerecorded communications over 2.2 sq km. The product's lightweight design allows for easy installation and does not require heavy equipment for installation.
"The 360Xm complements and expands our existing mass notification and emergency warning system product line-up providing a lightweight, compact form factor that is available for both mobile and permanent notification solutions," commented Tom Brown, President and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "The high degree of intelligibility, low power consumption and flexible installation options of the LRAD 360X and 360Xm gives us a competitive advantage as we pursue the large and growing worldwide mass notification market."
"We are also pleased to have received approximately $400,000 of follow-on orders from an existing international oil and gas customer to provide perimeter security for their offshore platforms and work boats off the coast of Africa," added Mr. Brown. "We continue to work to penetrate the oil and gas markets as well as other maritime and commercial markets where perimeter security is becoming essential."
