WHAT IS SOUND MASKING?

Sound Masking is a specifically tuned ambient background sound that targets the same frequency as human speech, reducing its intelligibility

By adding sound masking to a workplace, conversations are notably less intelligible or noticeable, and thus less distracting. The workplace becomes more comfortable, private, and productive

BENEFITS OF SOUND MASKING

Sound masking promotes speech privacy and prevents accidental listening, creating more productive workspaces that allow employees to focus on the task at hand

  • REDUCE NOISE DISTRACTIONS
  • BOOST PRODUCTIVITY
  • PROTECT SPEECH PRIVACY
  • IMPROVE OFFICE ACOUSTICS

How Does Sound Masking Work?

Adding sound to a space actually makes the space seem quieter. It sounds counter-intuitive but it’s true. This is because the added sound reduces the intelligibility of human speech. When you can’t understand what someone is saying, their words are less distracting — in fact, you probably don’t even notice them.

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.

Sound masking is an ambient sound, similar to the sound of airflow, that’s specifically engineered to the frequency of human speech you can target conversational distractions and make them less distracting. Sound masking does not cancel sound or eliminate all speech noise in an environment; it simply reduces how far away conversations can be heard and understood by others, which we call the radius of distraction

Sound masking is ambient background sound engineered to match the frequency of human speech for greater speech privacy.

Qt Pro Direct Field Sound Masking Technology

Cambridge Sound Management revolutionized the sound masking industry with the development of our direct field sound masking technology, QtPro. QtPro uniformly disperses a pre-tuned sound masking signal directly into the workspace. The result is a consistent and comfortable ambient sound through the space that doesn’t require extensive post install commissioning and tuning.

Cambridge Qt Pro Sound Masking System Consists of Three Components

Emitters (Loudspeakers)

Emit sound masking into the environment

Control Modules

Powers and sends the audio signal to the emitters

Cables

Standard Category Cabling connects the Emitters to the Control Modules


Qt PRO Simple Layout, Zoning, and Installation

The QtPro system is designed to meet the unique acoustic requirements of a space, whether large or small. Emitters are easily installed in a simple grid pattern, determined by ceiling height. During the layout and design phase, the space is divided into zones based on acoustic requirements of the space, allowing for different volume levels for each unique space.

Indirect Sound Masking Technology

Sound masking can also be emitted into an environment indirectly. In this method, loudspeaker are installed above the ceiling tiles , or under a raised access floor. The loudspeakers point upwards, towards the ceiling deck. The sound masking hits the ceiling deck and then reverberates back down through the drop ceiling, into the workplace below.

To be as consistent as a direct field sound masking system, it’s imperative that each loudspeaker be controllable on an individual basis to account for items in the ceiling plenum or differences in ceiling materials. The DynasoundPro Networked system is the only sound masking system that allows each loudspeaker to be individually controlled remotely via software.

The Basic Dynasound PRO Networked System Includes

Loudspeakers

Distribute sound masking to the environment

Loudspeaker Controllers

DS8000 allows for individual control up to 8 loudspeakers

POE Network Switch

Powers the loudspeaker controllers

Cables

Standard Category Cabling connects the Emitters to the Control Modules

Dynasound PRO Flexible Layout and Individually Controlled Speakers

The DynasoundPro Networked system is the only sound masking system that allows each speaker to be individually controlled remotely via software. Power is delivered through standard Ethernet cable to a small speaker controller (DS8000) installed in the ceiling. Each DS8000 has 8 speaker outputs. A music and paging interface can also be added to the system, allowing masking, paging, music, all to be controlled at the individual speaker level.​​
