SAN DIEGO, June 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (Nasdaq:LRAD), the world's leading provider of advanced mass notification and Long Range Acoustic Device® systems, today announced that the Government Security News ("GSN") 2015 Airport, Seaport, Border Security Awards Program has recognized the LRAD 450XL as the "Best Acoustic Hailing Service" and the LRAD 360X as the "Best Mass Notification System".
"For the second consecutive year GSN has awarded one of our long-range communication solutions as the Best Acoustic Hailing Device," noted Tom Brown, President and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "The LRAD 450XL is the communication industry's loudest, most intelligible acoustic hailing device (AHD) for its size and weight and an integral part of airport, seaport and border perimeter security programs."
Low profile, lightweight and designed for temporary or fixed mounting on tripods, vehicles and vessels, the LRAD 450XL uses an enhanced, patent pending technology to generate the audio output of a unit almost twice its size and weight with the same high level of clarity and intelligibility consistent with the LRAD product line. Featuring LRAD's optimized driver and waveguide technology, the LRAD 450XL ensures every broadcast cuts through wind, engine and background noise, and is clearly heard and understood, even inside vehicles and buildings.
"GSN recognized our mobile mass communication system as a finalist last year. This year our LRAD 360X was voted Best Mass Notification System, over a number of strong competitors," added Brown. "During emergency and mass communication situations, the ability to broadcast crystal clear voice messages is crucial for ensuring the safety of personnel and the public. The LRAD 360X delivers LRAD's renowned, highly intelligible voice broadcasts and warning siren tones with uniform 360° coverage over large areas."
LRAD 360X systems broadcast with exceptional intelligibility and vocal clarity to provide authorities ONE VOICE™ to communicate everyday announcements and potentially lifesaving information. LRAD systems are self-contained and do not rely on external power or communication infrastructure.
