Why Audio Matters
How VIBE Does Sound
A great sound system in a bad sounding room sounds bad AND wastes money. From auditoriums to classrooms and meeting rooms, the way a room sounds affects its feel and utility.
Want good audio in your living room? Buy a good set of speakers. Designing audio for a large space is totally different and involves careful engineering, physics, and knowledge of acoustics.
Numerous studies have shown the beneficial psychological effects of background music. Patrons rate their restaurant experience higher, drink longer, and spend more time gaming.
Mechanical noise and vibration
An auditorium with a noisy HVAC system due to improper ASHRAE criteria or a noise from an adjoining space are expensive problems to resolve after construction.
Noise masking has a huge ROI in open office environments to increase focus. It's also absolutely necessary for privacy in courtrooms for sidebar and medical for HIPPA compliance.
Complex paging systems need to route and schedule both live and pre-recorded pages, while maintaining proper priority levels. Even simple systems need to be reliable for critical communication.
In performing arts, production, and sports venues, production intercom allows team to communicate seamlessly. We can design simple partyline systems or complex IP matrix systems with wireless.
Predictive modeling allows us to evaluate how different sound system designs will perform in the real world to obtain consistent volume and tonality at every seat.
Sound system tuning
Unlike your living room, the physics of large spaces require onsite tweaking. We use computer based measurement systems to tune every large sound system we install.
“The VIBE team has helped us define and document our AV standards across our entire campus, creating the ability clearly communicate requirements to our design, construction, installation teams, and internal stakeholders. It’s great to have a partner with deep and diverse engineering experience to help us save time and solve problems.”
