Chris Ostoich is the co-founder and chief innovation officer of Lisnr, a communication protocol that uses ultrasonic audio to translate and transfer information. “Sound is infrastructure that’s all around us- in every room, car, office, device, concert- it’s there already, and historically we just haven’t used it as a communication mechanism,” says Ostoich. With about 30 million devices today and the expectation of close to 100 million this year, Lisnr has already powered the grammy app and boasts Ticketmaster as one of their biggest clients.
So, what are the benefits of this protocol versus so many others? Ultrasonic data transmission is easily embedded into existing infrastructures and ecosystems, does not require wifi or bluetooth, and is hardwareless, requiring nothing but sound, a speaker and a microphone.
