Awarded Silver Best of NeoCon® for Workplace Technologies
BURLINGTON, Ontario, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- K.R. Moeller Associates Ltd., a global developer and manufacturer of sound masking technology, today announced the launch of LogiSon® TARGET, an application that automatically tests and adjusts the masking sound to meet the specified curve.
Acoustics are vital to occupant satisfaction and productivity. Current design trends, including the increased use of open plan, movable walls and sustainable design practices, make today's facilities even more reliant on sound masking to improve speech privacy and control noise.
With the release of LogiSon TARGET, K.R. Moeller has once again raised the performance bar for the sound masking industry, as the company did in 2003 with the launch of the world's first networked sound masking, paging and music system, the LogiSon Acoustic Network.
LogiSon TARGET automatically tunes each small zone of one to three loudspeakers to the specified masking spectrum far faster and more accurately than formerly achievable, even by expert technicians. Testing of LogiSon TARGET has established that tuning time can be reduced by 90 percent or more, with superior results. As a result, many hours or even days can be saved when adjusting an entire facility, while the benefits of the sound masking system are maximized.
Though occupants cannot always subjectively perceive variations in the masking sound, they live with the consequences of poor tuning. Currently, masking system design and performance specifications can allow levels to vary by up to 4 dBA (A-weighted decibels) across a facility and still be considered acceptable, even though it can halve speech privacy and reduce comfort. With little training, LogiSon TARGET yields overall volume results within 0.5 dBA, as well as exceptional consistency in each third-octave frequency band. By providing detailed reports, LogiSon TARGET also permits clients to verify the results within their space.
"It's not enough to simply feed any sound into a client's space. Small deficiencies in the masking can substantially impact performance," said Niklas Moeller, Vice President, K.R. Moeller Associates Ltd. "LogiSon TARGET isn't a luxury or premium offering. It's essential to ensuring the masking sound is working as expected," he added.
LogiSon TARGET awarded Silver Best of NeoCon® for Workplace Technologies
The benefits of LogiSon TARGET are already being recognized within the architecture and design community. At this year's NeoCon World's Trade Fair, it earned a Silver Best of NeoCon Award in the Workplace Technologies category.
"Earning an award this year is particularly special because it's the 25th anniversary of the Best of NeoCon program," said Niklas Moeller, Vice President, K.R. Moeller Associates Ltd. "When I heard our name announced at the awards breakfast, I felt as much excitement as in 2003, when the LogiSon Acoustic Network won the first of what is now five Best of NeoCon awards for advancements in this technology."
"One of the themes of this year's NeoCon event was 'Productivity Never Looked So Good,' which is particularly appropriate to our business," said Moeller. "By addressing the all too common acoustic complaints of office occupants, the LogiSon Acoustic Network substantially improves productivity. After all, a workplace shouldn't only look good. It has to sound good too."
"We've been advocating for effective acoustic design throughout our company's history and the current trend towards recognizing the importance of focus work, as well as reasonable expectations of privacy and acoustical comfort is very good to see," Moeller added.
