And in addition to conferences, meetings and telephone conversations, we now have teleconferencing and videoconferencing.
But if the acoustics of meeting rooms, teleconference/video conference rooms, and even offices make it difficult to hear or understand the person speaking, there is a great risk of misunderstanding important details, or missing the message completely. This can have expensive and far reaching consequences.
To get some surprising insights into just how important good acoustics is, you can check out Julian Treasure’s TED presentation here.
Quality room acoustics by MediaRooms Technology make sure your message gets across and is understood.
We know acoustics backwards and forwards, and use proven science in our designs. There’s no hearsay, guesses, or hopeful reliance on your architect to be acoustics-savvy. And the methods and materials that we recommend do the best job at the best cost.
Using our unique Acoustical Room Analysis, our designs are derived from measured real, scientific data.
No guesswork. No voodoo or magic wand stuff. And no expensive, secret proprietary designs that are more flash than performance.
With your company or agency, acoustical design is just too important to be left to amateurs, online store sales people, or “experts” on forums who claim to know more about acoustics than they actually do.
MediaRooms just goes straight to real and gets it right. So if you’re ready for the real deal, call or email today!
The most important design goal for conference and meeting rooms is to maximize speech clarity and minimize interfering sound. The common go-to solution for this is to add P.A. speakers. But this often makes things worse, reminiscent of the saying about putting out a fire with gasoline.
Clarity problems are acoustical problems, so acoustical solutions are the best path to superior speech clarity. For example, the reverberant field of the room must be addressed. If sound decays too slowly due to highly reflective room surfaces, earlier speech will mask later speech, smearing and confusing it.
In addition, speech must be distributed in a room so that all participants understand what is being said, and equipment like Polycoms pick up pristine sound.
These issues require a different approach than what would be used for film/television mix rooms or music studios. Clarity is the number one goal in conference rooms, meeting rooms, and offices, while in the other rooms it is a neutral, natural, pleasing sound.
The consequences of misunderstood communications can be serious; it’s important to use an acoustical consultant who understands the issues, goals, and solutions.
