Information for FrontRow
and Calypso Customers

FrontRow and Calypso are forming one company to bring you a common integrated platform for critical school communication technologies: classroom audio, classroom AV control, network paging, and content capture.

Our two companies share a vision of what integrated school communication could and should be. We complement each other extremely well in terms of resources, intellectual property, and culture — nobody else can deliver better ways to manage school communication, or do it faster.

Who is Calypso?

Calypso is based in Minnesota. We specialize in network-based school paging/intercom/bell systems and AV command/control. Our strengths are in networking, digital RF, fast development, and school infrastructure consulting. About 30,000 classrooms use Calypso products today.

Who is FrontRow?

FrontRow is based in California. We specialize in classroom amplification. Our strengths are in audio quality, industrial design, classroom user success factors, and process control. We are part of the US$1.3 billion William Demant Group based in Denmark.

How long will it take for FrontRow and Calypso to be functioning as one company?

You can start treating us as one company immediately. Call (800) 227-0735 or contact if you have questions or need support. There will be some internal processes – creating a single web site for example – that will probably be finished in early 2012, but we will do everything we can to make sure you’re not bothered with those details. Our top priority is that you continue to enjoy great service while we’re working behind the scenes.

Do I need to update my records?

If your purchasing office lists Calypso Systems, FrontRow, or Phonic Ear as a vendor, please update your records to show FrontRow Calypso LLC as the new company name, with principal offices at 2080 Lakeville Highway, Petaluma, CA 94954.

Will my reseller carry all products?

Most likely, but if for some reason they do not, contact us at (800) 227-0735 and/or and we will connect you with a nearby company that has what you need.

Where do I place orders or get tech support?

As usual, your reseller should be your first choice for local service, but you can always contact us at (800) 227-0735 and/or and we will be happy to help you get what you need.
