logo-multispeak-vendor

For vendors still in development of compliant products.

Since it is our intent to promote the benefits of the MultiSpeak specification to as broad an audience as possible, we have developed the following guidelines for developers who will help us in this endeavor.

This logo is for use on marketing materials produced by those vendors which are officially and actively participating in the development of MultiSpeak compliant products. It can be used on specific product sheets as well as items marketing the corporation in general (such as a company’s home page) rather than specific products.

This logo cannot be reproduced in any color other than solid black or white. (It can be reversed, but only out of a color which has a tonal range darker than the equivalent of 50% gray, otherwise the solid black version should be used.)

logo-multispeak-compliant-v2
For use by vendors with products that are MultiSpeak compliant.

This logo is for use on marketing materials produced by those vendors who are marketing MultiSpeak compliant products. It should be used primarily on marketing materials detailing specific products such as sell sheets, web pages detailing the compliant product, advertisements and product packaging.

When the promotion of the company as a whole rather than a specific product is required, the “Participating Vendor” logo should be utilized

logo-multispeak-interop-v4

For use by vendors with products that are MultiSpeak interoperable.

This logo is for use on marketing materials produced by those vendors who are marketing MultiSpeak compliant products. It should be used primarily on marketing materials detailing specific products such as sell sheets, web pages detailing the compliant product, advertisements and product packaging.

When the promotion of the company as a whole rather than a specific product is required, the “Participating Vendor” logo should be used.

logo-multispeak-developer

For use by a vendors selling products that have been tested compliant with the current version of MultiSpeak.

This logo is for use on marketing materials produced by those vendors which (1) are officially and actively participating in the MultiSpeak Initiative and (2) sell at least one product that has passed compliance testing on the current version of the MultiSpeak specification or have tested interoperable with another product using the current version of the specification. It can be used on specific product sheets as well as items marketing the corporation in general (such as a company’s homepage).

logo-multispeak-integrator

For use by vendors that are trained in the use of MultiSpeak.

NRECA offers a MultiSpeak® Integrator training class. A person who has attended this class (for a version of the MultiSpeak specification that NRECA determines is current), will receive a certificate of training from NRECA.

Either an electric utility, or company providing services to electric utilities, that is a member in good standing of the MultiSpeak Initiative and employs at least one person who has received the MultiSpeak training certificate, may use the MultiSpeak Integrator Logo.

multispeak-logo-printadsKeep your company name/logo or the product name/logo as the dominant identifier in the ad, in the brochure of the promotional piece.

Ideally, the MultiSpeak Vendor Logo (MultiSpeak Participating Vendor, MultiSpeak Software Developer, MultiSpeak Integrator) or Product Logo (Compliant Product, general or version specific, or Interoperable Product) will appear at the bottom of a print ad, and may be placed centered, left or right aligned.

You should follow the guidelines for multiple logo placement ensuring that sufficient space is provided so that each logo is distinct. Each logo must also be appropriately sized: the MultiSpeak logo should not appear larger than your company or product logo and should be clearly legible.

Remember: you may only use a Product Logo when the item is featuring a product that has been certified as compliant with or having passed interoperability testing for the MultiSpeak specification. Therefore, if an ad, brochure panel, or page in a promotional piece is describing your company, or multiple products (some of which have not been certified as complaint with or have not passed interoperability testing for the MultiSpeak specification), use the appropriate Vendor Logo

It is inappropriate to use a MultiSpeak Product Logo on your home page, or on any web page that also identifies products which are not certified as MultiSpeak compliant or having passed MultiSpeak interoperability testing.

A web page that only describes a compliant or interoperable product may use a MultiSpeak Product Logo.

  • Right or left aligned, beneath your company or product logo.
  • Adjacent, as a bookend, to your company or product logo on the top or bottom of the page. (A)

Your company name with your logo and any product name or logo should clearly be identified in a prominent location in the presentation (such as on the title page, in headings, in the design template, etc.).

A MultiSpeak Product Logo should NOT be used on a presentation slide that is describing your company as a whole, or that describes or lists products that have not been certified as MultiSpeak compliant or passed MultiSpeak interoperability testing. For such slides, use the appropriate MultiSpeak Vendor Logo.

A presentation slide that only describes a compliant or interoperable product or interoperable product may use a MultiSpeak Product Logo.
