SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 30, 2024 / -- Packetcraft®, a global leader with production-ready embedded Bluetooth® LE stacks and software solutions is commercially shipping all the key software components to enable Bluetooth LE Audio and Auracast™ broadcast audio in some of the market’s most innovative solutions, including assistive listening and TV streaming. These and other commercial products were on display during CES 2024 in the Bluetooth SIG’s Auracast Experience showcasing how one can “unmute your world” with Auracast.

“Packetcraft software engineers have been very engaged behind the scenes working with both product and semiconductor companies, helping bring Bluetooth LE Audio to market,” said John Yi, CEO at Packetcraft. “It has been our privilege to work closely with market leaders including Ampetronic, Listen Technologies and others to ensure the future of wireless audio is compelling and inclusive.”

Packetcraft first announced Bluetooth 5.3 Qualification with support for isochronous channels, which enable multi-stream audio and Auracast broadcast audio, back in October 2021. Today, Packetcraft’s comprehensive and fully-integrated Bluetooth LE Audio solution includes Packetcraft Host, Packetcraft Controller, and Packetcraft LC3 and is both successfully licensed to multiple chip and product companies and is shipping along with Packetcraft BLE software test tools.

In December 2023, Ampetronic and Listen Technologies announced the first complete installed Assistive Listening System utilizing Auracast™ broadcast audio technology. The new solution includes networked installation transmitters for multi-channel broadcast for any size space, with the option for open or secure transmission. Also, during the CES Auracast Experience, one could listen to a presenter speaking in a simulated auditorium using these new products.
“At Listen Technologies we’re leading the evolution of assistive listening,” said Tracy Bathurst, Chief Technology Officer, Listen Technologies.” Leveraging Packetcraft’s proven LE Audio software has empowered our engineers to quickly and efficiently develop market leading assistive listening solutions that will increase accessibility and improve listening experiences.”

“It is exciting to be pioneering LE Audio for large public spaces with our new products, coming to market just as the very first hearing aids have appeared from GN Resound and the first earbuds from Samsung,” said Julian Pieters, Managing Director of Ampetronic. “It is also a major challenge to be early to market when the whole ecosystem is completely new and evolving – our partnership with Packetcraft has really helped us to navigate that with confidence and speed.”

Listen Technologies will be exhibiting the latest in Auracast-enabled Assistive Listening products during ISE 2024 in Spain this week, and the Bluetooth SIG will showcase The Auracast™ Experience alongside Listen Technologies in booth 3Q220 at Fira Barcelona.
