American Technology Corporation (San Diego, Calif.) announced factory production of the first commercial units of its HyperSonic Sound (HSS) system, which creates highly directional sound using the air itself.

The first HSS production model, PB1200, is a dual-emitter, digital playback version, which is fully self-contained in a compact enclosure. Other models are planned for introduction over the next several months based on customer application and requirements.

“HSS is an exciting audio innovation that is shaping the future of sound,” said Terry Conrad, president of ATC. “Our proprietary production methods have now made HSS economical, and it will become even more economical as unit volumes and applications expand.”

The wide range of applications was a result from recent improvements made by ATC in the sound quality and output level of HSS. The design of the current production HSS model has resulted in a system optimized for low distortion and smooth frequency response.

“Orders from existing ATC customers and licensees have already absorbed our full production capabilities through this fall,” said Bob Todrank, VP of business development of ATC. “Initial applications for HSS include point-of-purchase displays, kiosks, retail store advertising, museum guides and exhibit booth sound.”

The HSS systems being produced for ATC by HST Inc., its manufacturing partner, meet all appropriate government regulatory requirements and will carry the UL and CE labels, indicating that all safety requirements have been met. The FDA also has issued a “clearance to market” to ATC for HSS, as it pertains to ultrasonic devices for other than medical applications.
