Hamilton CapTel® and Partner TV Ears to Display Telephone Communication Technology Designed for Individuals with Hearing Loss at Consumer Electronics Show
(January 5, 2011)
For the first time, CES attendees will have the opportunity to experience Hamilton CapTel service at the TV Ears exhibit in the Silvers Summit
For the first time, Hamilton CapTel®
will demonstrate the CapTel 800i captioned telephone for more than 100,000 attendees at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas January 6 – January 9, 2011. In addition, Hamilton CapTel and TV Ears debut their marketing partnership while exhibiting together at CES. Through combined efforts, the companies will jointly reach millions of Americans who experience hearing loss, informing consumers about the technology that is available through their respective companies.
In Booth 2910, under the Silvers Summit banner, Hamilton CapTel and partner TV Ears will demonstrate the CapTel 800i telephone – allowing attendees to experience telephone captions first-hand at the show. The CapTel 800i provides real-time, word-for-word captions of what is said over the phone on a bright screen built into the phone. As a result, the user can see what is being said, ensuring superior clarity for both parties on the call.
"More than 30 million Americans suffer from hearing loss," said Dixie Ziegler, vice president of Hamilton CapTel. "Our technology takes the frustration out of trying to listen to what is being said on the telephone. Users can 'see what they say' using the CapTel 800i and we feel that CES is the perfect venue to demonstrate this life-enhancing technology." "Partnering with TV Ears, the leading brand for wireless TV listening devices, makes good sense since the two products complement each other and enhance the lives of individuals who may experience difficulty hearing on the television as well as over the phone," says Anne Girard, director of marketing for Hamilton.
"We're delighted to include Hamilton CapTel in our exhibit this year. The synergy between our products is clear, and consumers who benefit from one will likely benefit from both," said Tony Emma, VP of eCommerce at TV Ears.
Hamilton CapTel product experts will be in the booth to answer questions and showcase the captioned telephone technology.
