We’re excited to announce that LISNR’s team has been named an honoree in two mobile-app categories at the 2016 Webby Awards! We’re a 3rd time honoree.
The 20th annual awards that honor “the best of the Internet” were announced in late April and presented May 16. LISNR was among the honorees in the categories of Integrated Mobile Experience and Best Use of GPS or Location Technology.
LISNR’s data-over-audio technology — using audio that’s readable by devices but inaudible to humans — can deliver revolutionary connectivity, information and experiences to users without being burdened by the scaling issues that affect Wi-Fi and cellular signals and the distance limits faced with Bluetooth. For example, LISNR can send relevant, timely information such as access to video replays to every person in a sports stadium or offer schedule updates and concessions discounts for attendees at a music festival.
This isn’t LISNR’s first recognition from the Webbys — its app for the Budweiser Made In America music festival was an honoree last year, and its J. Cole “Born Sinner” Listening Session was honored in 2014.
We’re so proud of the team for its good work and growing recognition.

LISNR is a new communication protocol that sends data over audio using inaudible sound waves called SmartTones™. These customizable packets of data can enable proximity data transmission, second-screen functionality, authentication and low-fi device-to-device connectivity on any LISNR-enabled device. We enable this functionality better and more efficiently than Bluetooth (proximity), ACR (second Screen), and NFC/RFID (authentication). Contact us to learn more.
