Fusion Sound Masking technology from Cambridge Sound Management enables customers to deploy both direct-field emitters and indirect loudspeakers on a DynasoundPro™ networked sound masking system simultaneously. This will solve an immediate problem for integrators when multiple loudspeaker types are needed for projects with varied ceiling architecture.
Sound masking makes a building seem quieter by raising the ambient noise level of an environment and making speech noise less intelligible and therefore less distracting. It is the process of adding background sound to reduce noise distractions, protect speech privacy, and increase office comfort.
The DynasoundPro is a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) sound masking, paging, and music system. Using industry standard network hardware and easy to specify components, this networked sound masking system enables the most flexibility—allowing reconfiguration, system adjustment, and control over individual speakers via an intuitive software program. By leveraging the patented Qt® Active Emitter technology on a single PoE networked system, integrators and consultants will have a new tool to deliver high-performance, uniform sound masking regardless of ceiling and plenum design challenges. The Qt Active Emitter is a single-source Emitter capable of both sound masking and simultaneous clear reproduction of paging and music signals. It provides higher SPL and a broader frequency range than previous direct field Emitter offerings in a small, powerful speaker that’s virtually invisible once deployed in finished or open structure ceilings.
Using Fusion Sound Masking technology, office paging and background music capabilities will also increase with individually addressable loudspeakers and customization options for direct or indirect configurations, depending on the client’s audio needs.
“We believe introducing the first fusion PoE sound masking solution breaks new ground in an industry often defined by two different technologies,” says Christopher Calisi, CEO of Cambridge Sound Management. “By focusing on solving a problem first, and then applying the right technology second, we are in a great position to help customers and integrators create a more comfortable and productive work environment regardless of architectural challenges.”
