Listen Technologies Corporation has acquired ExXothermic, Inc., a provider of Wi-Fi audio technology. ExXothermic has several patents for its Wi-Fi streaming technology and has delivered thousands of Wi-Fi audio channels for use in assistive listening, fitness centers, waiting areas, hospitality, and other applications and environments around the world.
Listen Technologies and ExXothermic, Inc. have worked together in partnership for more than two years. In 2017, Listen Technologies acquired ExXothermic’s Audio Everywhere brand and licensed its Wi-Fi technology. ExXothermic technology also provided the foundation for Listen Technologies’ audio Wi-Fi products.
“Listen Technologies’ partnership with ExXothermic over the years, and the combination of our two companies today, enables us to provide even more Wi-Fi-enabled solutions for customers,” Russ Gentner, CEO of Listen Technologies, said. “As the availability of Wi-Fi and number of smartphone users increase globally, so are applications for our solutions. We have several new products in development that will address these new applications.”
Dr. Lance Glasser founded Silicon Valley-based ExXothermic in 2012. He has authored several dozen articles and more than 30 US patents. Glasser will join Listen Technologies’ board of directors and head the company’s research group.
