James Abdool joins @Chirp

James Abdool has joined Chirp [1] as their new Chief Commercial Officer.

James has a long history of leadership roles in the fields of sound and connectivity, most recently leading the digital division of global giant Arcadis and of course brings a wealth of expertise and real-world experience to the role.

Chirp technology encodes data into a series of audible or inaudible near-ultrasonic pitches and tones to form a ‘sonic barcode’. Data is encoded on a sending device before being transmitted, over the air, to a receiving device, or group of devices where it is decoded. Any device with a speaker can emit a Chirp and most devices with a microphone and a small amount of processing power can receive and decode it.

Their technology also recognises existing audio, triggering a myriad of reactions in listening devices.
