Parametric Sound’s directed sound product selected by Build-A-Bear

BY Katherine Boccaccio

San Diego, Calif. — Audio products company Parametric Sound Corp. said Tuesday that Build-A-Bear Workshop will include its directed sound product in six newly designed stores that will be opened across the U.S. this year.

The HyperSound product will allow Build-A-Bear to simultaneously operate multiple interactive kiosks within the store, each playing its own specific audio message.

"We are very excited to merge this innovative technology with our newly designed, interactive bear-making process," said Dave Finnegan, head of information and interactivity for the chain.

The acoustic technology beams sound to target a specific listening area without the ambient noise of traditional speakers.

Orvis selects Comosoft for multichannel media production

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Frisco, Texas — Multichannel media production software developer Comosoft said Tuesday that Orvis has selected it to begin implementation of a system to manage Orvis’s multichannel media production process.

The outdoor retailer is currently currently implementing Comosoft’s multichannel media production system, LAGO, which is designed to drive the planning, creation, and management of multichannel marketing and product promotion.

"We realize the need to consolidate our print and digital production workflow into a single content management system," said Meg Kearton, director of catalog production for Orvis. “We are searching for a more efficient way to promote our products through all of our print and digital channels. This is why we are implementing the LAGO system from Comosoft."

Comosoft said its goal is to develop, a single, fully integrated content management system for Orvis that gives the retailer the freedom to create content more quickly and with greater efficiency for all media channels.

I've just seen on my newsfeed that, "Comosoft company implements a multimedia production system for Schawk retail." I actually don't know about this stuff. But some of my friends were ranting because of this. I feel so stupid not being so aware on this matter! www.collegepaper.org | Dancing Dove Lane, Garden City, NY 11530
