MV-AUDIBLE Wireless Coaching Intercom

By TexasHSFootball.com – PROVO, Utah and HOUSTON, Texas — July 16, 2015 — MULTIVOICE™ today announced the MV-AUDIBLE™ — the company’s newest Wireless Mesh-Network Intercom™ — a system that will be unveiled publicly next week at the Texas High School Coaches Association trade show in booth #5103.

The first Wireless Coaching Intercom™ designed specifically for today’s Up-Tempo game of football, the MV-AUDIBLE is a state-of-the-art coaching communications system with revolutionary technology that enhances the coaching experience. “MV-AUDIBLE takes communications on the gridiron to a whole new level,” said MULTIVOICE CEO and President, Ron Fraser. “The way we’ve designed the MV-AUDIBLE, it’s now possible to start out with a handful of systems and then add more as needed, without having to buy expensive Base Stations to upgrade. That means every single coach can have his own headset — which is absolutely critical to run, and defend, today’s go-go-go offenses. Why? “Because it’s not just about having the right game plan in place; you also need to ensure that every coach and every player is on the same page as quickly as possible. That means having the right technology, on the field and in the press box. And if you really want to perfect your Up-Tempo offense or defense, then you really need to practice while using your headsets — otherwise you’ll never be able to practice perfectly. And that’s what it takes to be perfect on the field come game time.”

A Communications Game Changer Each wireless MV-AUDIBLE Intercom comes paired with either a double- or a single-ear, heavy-duty headset, and each paired system arrives at each school pre-configured by MULTIVOICE specifically for the requirements of each team. MV-AUDIBLE allows up to 17 coaches to speak simultaneously, with an unlimited number of coaches on each system in Listen Mode. However, any coach can quickly switch into Speaking Mode by quickly lowering his boom microphone and entering an open Talk Slot. Teams can also designate certain MV-AUDIBLE units as Priority systems that will always be guaranteed a Talk Slot, such as those used by head coaches and/or offensive or defensive coordinators. Setting up an MV-AUDIBLE network is as simple as powering on the units, connecting headsets, and turning on the microphones. In other words, coaches can be up and operational with MV-AUDIBLE in literally seconds. And because there are no complicated or expensive Base Stations with MV-AUDIBLE, the MULTIVOICE comms system is ideal for use during practices, scrimmages, and games — whether at home or on the road. “We really have done our best to make the MV-AUDIBLE so simple that a coach could have a Fifth Grader run and manage the units,” Fraser said. “But not only that, MV-AUDIBLE has a range of up to 4000 ft. (greater distances possible with upgrades) and delivers up to 18 hours of actual Talk Time. In other words, coaches can spread out all over ‘Kingdom Come’ with our MV-AUDIBLEs during sultry summer two-a-days and not worry about batteries failing or not being able to hear each other. And because we’ve based the MV-AUDIBLE off the same platform we’ve designed for Police, Fire and Military use, this means MV-AUDIBLEs can take a beating and keep on running no problem, regardless of temperature or weather conditions.” Based upon preliminary testing, MULTIVOICE anticipates that many teams will assign their coaches to specific channels on their MV-AUDIBLE networks, such as Offense on Channel 1 and Defense on Channel 2. This approach allows teams to minimize discipline cross-talk and confusion among coaches, while maximizing communications efficiency. This approach also allows the head coach to simply switch from Offense to Defense as needed, while also providing two additional Channels for private conversations among coaches or between a player and a coach.

MV-AUDIBLE Specifications MV-AUDIBLE Intercom enclosures measure 5.3×3.3×1.3-inches and are made from a hardened Polycarbonate-ABS black plastic blend, with each unit weighing 15.98 ounces, that is powered by two internal 3000mAh Lithium-Polymer batteries, supported with a 3.5-inch-high flexible antenna. The MV-AUDIBLE operates in the 900MHz band (specifically, 902—928MHz) and utilizes a patented mixture of TDMA (Time Division Multiplex Access), FDMA (Frequency Division Multiplex Access), 30-millisecond Frequency-Hopping Spread Spectrum, and proprietary communication protocols to automatically maintain connectivity within each MV-AUDIBLE “wireless mesh-network” while preventing eavesdropping and jamming. The MV-AUDIBLE is priced at $1,500.00 per unit (which includes either one single- or one double-ear heavy-duty headset), with an introductory rebate of $250.00 per unit from MULTIVOICE. MV-AUDIBLE Intercoms are available through MULTIVOICE’s dealer network, including Sideline Power, which is a Silver Sponsor of THSCA 2015 and is exhibiting at the trade show in Booth #10085. Additionally, MULTIVOICE will give away five (5) pairs of MV-AUDIBLE Intercoms at THSCA 2015, one pair each to five lucky schools. This giveaway is limited to high school coaches and athletic directors, but participants do not have to be present at the THSCA 2015 tradeshow/convention to win.

MULTIVOICE Announces the Unexpected Death of its President, Todd Rapier

Founder and CEO, Ron Fraser, steps in as President  PROVO, Utah, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — It is with grTodd Rapier (45), died unexpectedly in his sleep on Friday, July 3, 2015 while serving as President of Provo, Utah-based MULTIVOICE.eat sadness that MULTIVOICE and the members of the MULTIVOICE “family” today announce the unexpected death of MULTIVOICE President, Todd Rapier (45). Rapier passed away in his sleep from unknown causes on Friday, July 3. According to the company, MULTIVOICE Founder and CEO, Ron Fraser, has taken on the role of President and is being supported in these expanded efforts by the firm’s experienced executive team and Board of Directors. “Todd will be sorely missed by all of us at MULTIVOICE along with all those who had the great opportunity of knowing and loving him,” Fraser said. “He came to work every day ready to take on the world with a contagious level of enthusiasm and excitement. Todd made amazing contributions to our company and to society, and he established a great foundation for success here at MULTIVOICE. We will do all we can to honor his memory by building off the foundation he laid and making MULTIVOICE a booming company that will disrupt the wireless communications industry.”

RAPIER AND MULTIVOICE BACKGROUND Rapier was first introduced to Fraser in 2007 through their mutual hobby of refereeing high school basketball. It was their kindred love for sports, the outdoors and entrepreneurship that kindled a bond that grew into a deep friendship. So when Fraser needed advice for his latest endeavor in advanced radio technology, he looked to someone he could trust — Todd Rapier. Rapier started consulting for MULTIVOICE in the summer of 2014. By the fall of that same year it was clear to Fraser that Rapier had the vision and experience needed to fill the role as President and Co-Founder.

With Rapier as President, MULTIVOICE was rapidly transformed as it moved from a company driven by research and development to a company driven by a focus on customer needs. He worked tirelessly to ensure the company’s well being and believed that relationships made the world go ’round — that money only came after people. He also emphasized that customer service was the most effective sales vehicle, and he knew that his success was primarily dependent on his ability to help others. This belief was something that he showed through his actions on a daily basis at MULTIVOICE.

Prior to joining MULTIVOICE, Rapier was the executive vice president of worldwide sales of MultiLing, an intellectual property translation company, where he drove the company from flat sales to a 30 percent growth rate. During the previous 15 years, he provided similar results for a variety of companies in electrical power solutions (Simplure Power), paper-based digital automation (Velosum and Lucion LLC) and corporate legal research (LexisNexis). Previously, Rapier attended Brigham Young University where he studied history. Rapier is survived by his wife, Mandy, and her three children; three children from a previous marriage; his parents; and three siblings. A viewing will be held on Friday, July 10 from 9 to10:45 a.m. followed by a funeral service from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., with both events held at the LDS Chapel located at 56 East 600 North in Lindon, Utah.
