Listen Technologies Corporation has announced the InfoComm webinar “Addressing the March ADA Deadline for AV Systems.”

In 2010 the Department of Justice amended the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for assistive listening and other AV systems. The new requirements go into full effect on March 12, 2012.

InfoComm has partnered with Listen Technologies and Technitect to present the details of what the new requirements will mean to the audio-visual industry. Timothy Cape, CTS-D, a principal consultant at Technitect, and Craig Paller, wireless listening product group leader at Listen Technologies, will deliver the presentation.

The webinar is scheduled for January 10, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. EST, and is free. Participants who are CTS holders can earn CTS renewal units. Advanced registration is required; click here.

“This changes the specification for all audio systems, and assistive listening is now required for all public venues that offer sound reinforcement of any kind,” said Craig Paller. “This is not a product webinar in any respect. It's about the changes in legislation and what that means to our AV community.”
