SAN DIEGO, Dec. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (Nasdaq:LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs) and advanced mass notification systems, today announced that Company representatives will be exhibiting at the International WorkBoat Show & Annual Conference at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana from December 3-5, 2014. At the International WorkBoat Show, the Company will be unveiling the LRAD 500RX, the newest AHD in the LRAD-RX® product line. The LRAD 500RX can be remotely operated across any IP network, enabling system operators to respond to potential threats from a safe location while creating a completely unmanned security solution. The LRAD 500RX achieves maximum output of 149 dB and highly intelligible voice broadcasts up to 2,000 meters. "The LRAD 500RX is a lighter and more compact version of our successful LRAD 1000RX system, that has been engineered and designed on a new proprietary pan and tilt system," commented Tom Brown, President and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "The smaller form factor of the LRAD 500RX expands the market opportunities for LRAD's best-of-breed AHD technology, and is well suited for the oil and gas and workboat industries. We also believe it can be a critical part of perimeter and border security solutions due to the exceptional performance that can be achieved through remote operations." The International WorkBoat Show & Annual Conference attracts over 1,000 marine product and service suppliers. The Show provides opportunities for meeting and troubleshooting with product experts, direct negotiations with multiple suppliers, discussions about the latest advancements in vessel technology, and the opportunity find the solutions that are right for businesses.
