Parametric Sound Corporation Files US Patent Application for Emitter Innovation

Parametric Sound Corporation Files US Patent Application for Emitter Innovation 
Expected to Broaden Range of Applications for HyperSound(TM)
Technology 
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 --  Parametric Sound
Corporation (NASDAQ: PAMT), a leading innovator of audio technology
and solutions, announced today that it has filed for patent
protection on novel new emitter technology that it believes will
significantly expand the applications for its directional 3D audio
systems. 
The Company's audio systems reproduce standard audio content through
patented and patent-pending processing and control electronics that
reproduce audio in the air along an ultrasonic beam. The beam is
generated by custom emitters, similar to speakers in conventional
audio systems. The latest innovation offers higher fidelity
performance in a much wider range of form factors. 
"While it is not our normal practice to announce patent filings, we
believe this particular filing is especially important to our patent
portfolio and will expand the market opportunities for
commercialization of HyperSound technology," said Ken Potashner,
executive chairman. "In addition to performance enhancements and cost
savings our new emitter technology allows easy and rapid deployment
by prospective licensees in diverse consumer and health applications
where directed audio and 3D sound are highly relevant. We are very
excited to demonstrate our latest innovations to potential customers
and licensees." 
"We are demonstrating emitters as thin as a credit card that can be
sized, shaped and molded to reproduce directional and 3D audio and we
can easily and economically control the width of the beam," said
inventor and chief scientist Elwood Norris. "The frequency response
is impressive and the design flexibility of new form factors offers
the promise of new applications for directed audio."
