Innovative Company C-Hear to Make Audible Impact at Dallas Startup Week

DALLAS, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh off its successful debut at South by Southwest in Austin, visionary tech company C-Hear is honored to be featured in a significant panel discussion at prestigious Dallas Startup Week. Leaders and partners from the Dallas-based, innovative group will further unveil its unique software that produces unfakable documents, unbreakable contracts, unstealable images and the advent of secure, portable, talking pictures.

C-Hear founder and CEO Adena Harmon will speak Thursday April 4th, 12-12:45 pm at Basecamp, Ross Tower, 14th floor, Second stage in a "Startups That Change Our Lives" panel also scheduled to include renowned Ob-Gyn Dr. Lyndsey M. Harper, MyndVR CEO Chris Bricker and Dr. Lara Ashmore of the University of Texas at Dallas. A Texas-sized business collaboration, DSW is expected to connect 10,000 entrepreneurs, investors and community leaders.

"After years of development and sweat equity, we're proud and excited to showcase C-Hear at prestigious events like Dallas Startup Week," Harmon says. "We started with a simple idea and a single destination: Provide an image with sound in a single file, without the need for a big, cumbersome video. We're confident the reaction to our software will be enthusiastically positive."

At SXSW, C-Hear's technology was hailed as an Internet disruptor destined to change how consumers hear pictures and transfer data.

C-Hear's revolutionary and proprietary Codec allows images to include audio annotation, deleting the need for long, slow-loading video files or insufficient static photos. Contracts and wills sealed verbally, images containing audio watermarking and friends simply sharing images with sound – eliminating additional texting – are only some of the C-Hear benefits to be highlighted.

C-Hear's services will benefit not only the seven million visually impaired Americans using the Internet, but also clinical workflows in the healthcare industry, teachers, lawyers and anyone that – until now – has toiled sending separate video, audio and photo files.

A Dallas-based company launched in 2015, C-Hear was created for the purpose of delivering a small digital footprint file containing both image and sound. C-Hear's revolutionary Codec will help the seven million visually impaired Americans "hear" images on the Internet, while also allowing health-industry companies and their patients a smooth transition into the age of ADA compliance. Recognizing that more than 30 percent of all websites (more than 87 million) use WordPress as their primary framework for the administration of content, C-Hear is developing a WordPress plugin set of widgets and templates. Having found its space snuggled between static images and fast-moving videos, C-Hear is proud to be a disruptive enabler of talking pictures.

Dallas Startup Week 2019, powered by Capital One, is a free, 5-day event from April 1-5 that impacts and mobilizes 10,000 North Texas entrepreneurs and change-makers. The event will include more than 150 sessions across 16 tracks, the launch of the Women of Innovation Summit, a new Corporate Startup Innovation Summit, a series of headline speakers and the annual State of Entrepreneurship. Featuring keynote speakers Mayor Mike Rawlings and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban, #DSW19 is dedicated to connecting and uniting startups, founders, corporate and social innovators, investors and community leaders.
