Our Story

CUE Audio was founded in October 2017 with the goal of providing an offline, network-free communications protocol using high-frequency, ultrasonic audio as an alternative to WiFi, cell service, and Bluetooth for short-range communications. CUE's technology has been widely adopted across the NFL, NBA, and NCAA as a way to coordinate tens of thousands of smartphones in-venue to create synchronized fan engagement experiences that otherwise would not be possible with WiFi, Bluetooth, or Cellular infrastructure. CUE's acoustic modem has also been widely utilized as an IoT protocol and mechanism for detecting proximity. CUE's technology engages over 500,000 users each month and operates in over 100 major arenas and stadiums worldwide.
