AURACAST + AUDIOLOGY
While at the show, the majority of audiologists present had never heard of #Auracast and didn't understand that Bluetooth, by nature, is a developing technology held accountable by standardization and a commitment for constant reform. We sent as many show attendees to Bluetooth SIG's Auracast booth to experience Auracast live in a variety of use-case staged scenarios. The response was better than we hoped for. There was a shared excitement for the idea of standardization, products held accountable to technical development and an eagerness for environmental adoption of network listening options.
