Greensburg, PA (September 12, 2019) – Westmoreland Cultural Trust is excited to announce the installation of a new assistive listening system at The Palace Theatre in Greensburg, PA. The Listen Technologies infrared devices will provide an exceptional listening experience to audience members with hearing concerns.

Eight new units will be available to guests at no charge during every theatre performance.  An integrated neck loop/lanyard with DSP loop driver, worn like a necklace, will provide better audio for people with cochlear implants and telecoils and allows the sound to be transmitted directly from the lanyard to the hearing device. Universal stereo headphones are also available with each unit and can be beneficial to those with other types of hearing aids or those that simply require a higher degree of amplification. A dual 5.5 mm output jack allows the receiver to be shared between users if desired.

The devices are half the size and weight of other models making them easier for patrons to wear and are designed to deliver higher quality audio with 20dB less hiss than other receivers. Users are able to control the volume of each unit to their own personal comfort level.

“We want to make sure all of our patrons, including those that are hearing impaired, are able to enjoy each and every performance at The Palace Theatre,” stated Terry Reese, Westmoreland Cultural Trust Board Chairman. “Patrons who are in need of audio amplification can now receive the best possible experience from almost anywhere in the venue.”

Patrons wishing to use the device when visiting the theatre may inquire with the house manager prior to the start of the performance.
