Let’s get a closer look at the different speakerphones Jabra, Polycom, and Plantronics (the industry leaders) offer to find the one that’s best for your needs.

Boosting Meeting Productivity with Acoustic Treatments

Primacoustic boardroom panels

Do you often have to repeat yourself during conference calls in your meeting room? Are you tired of the constant “Can you repeat that?”

Changing your meeting room audio equipment can be of tremendous help, but more often than not, it’s the room itself that causes issues. With the advent of open-space offices, what were once relatively quiet environments have now become ‘energy-filled’ rooms where sounds from conversations permeate all areas. When those in the meeting are on the phone, voices are raised in order to compensate for the ambient noise as a natural means to be heard above the din.

Acoustic treatments are an easy solution to reduce the ambient noise in a meeting room. Covering just 15 to 30% of the wall coverage with acoustic panels tames the reverberation in the room, immediately rectifying the problem caused by flutter echo. Paintable panels offer an extra architectural twist by enabling them to be painted or have an image transferred onto the surface, such as your organization’s logo, or branding colours.

"I'm sorry, can you repeat that?"

SENSUS is proud to introduce one of its newest partners in the world of acoustic paneling: Primacoustic.
Primacoustic is a manufacturer of acoustic materials of all types. With over 30 years of experience in studio and live sound and 15 years in acoustics, they have now become a market leader in high performance acoustic products.
