Acoustical Solutions Designed for the Eye Arrive at NAB Show

(RICHMOND, VA) May 19, 2014 – Studio acoustics is an aspect of production that every broadcast engineer and technician must consider for the capture of high quality audio and to complete successful projects for TV and radio. While historically much of the acoustical treatment used in broadcasting facilities prioritizes function over form, the recent demand for visually pleasing treatment by architects and interior designers have opened the door for sound absorbing materials that are as welcome in front of the camera as they are behind the scenes. Acoustical Solutions, the leader in soundproofing and noise control products for broadcasting and recording facilities, and 25-year NAB partner, spent recent years developing acoustical products and materials that meet these clients’ new expectations.

“I have been exhibiting at NAB for over fifteen years, and it used to be a lot of cut and dry conversations about acoustical foam and what frequencies they absorb,” says ASI Trade Show Manager Don Strahle, “today our clients expect more. They want something functional, but they also want something they don’t have to hide”.

New acoustical products at ASI include those wrapped in metallic or matte fabrics available in hundreds of custom colors and images, new shapes and sizes, and surprising ideas for placement. Debuting at this year’s NAB Show is Polyphon™ Polyester Acoustical Panels, which are completely fiberglass free and made from recycled materials.
“One of our most popular new products is the AcoustiArt Printed Panel,” says ASI General Manager David Ingersoll, “it’s a great branding opportunity for studios who can personalize these with logos and custom high res images”. Acoustical Solutions is exhibiting at booth #C3405 and will be raffling off an AcoustiArt Panel to show attendees. The panel will be custom made with the winner’s image of choice.
