Astronaut speaker showing 3-input mixer connections
MINNEAPOLIS, MN, March 24 2010-Cetacea Sound Corp announces the Astronaut Speaker Series with patented omni-directional acoustic horns for improved word recognition by students in K-12. This new speaker technology is superior to typical in-ceiling and on-wall speakers in its ability to reproduce the important voice frequencies, especially those in the sibilant range above 5 KHz.
Featured at the National School Board National Tour in Kansas City last year, the Astronaut has been installed in over 50,000 classrooms nationwide. Entire school districts have adopted it as the Gold Standard for student learning.
âEver since the introduction of high impact technology like projectors and white boards into the classrooms of K-12 students, audio has lagged behind,â? said RJ Goetz, chief marketing officer, Cetacea Sound Corp. âAlthough several projector manufacturers have tried to add traditional speakers to their product offerings, none have been able to recreate the connection of live voice between student and teacher. This connection is required for high word recognition and proper speech development. In fact, common speakers create the opposite of high performance learning. They not only lack the higher frequencies required for sibilant speech, they also cause distortion and reverberation. This results in a classroom that is averse to learning and unhealthy for students and teachers due to listener fatigue.â?
The Astronaut was further chosen by Long Island schools whose district officials presented it to the school board members and superintendents attending the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA) 89th Annual Convention & Educational Trade Show. âThe Astronaut not only provides a great value but sounds better in the classroom than any we tested,â? stated an official.
âA well designed classroom amplification system has several requirements. Not only does the design need to solve the acoustic challenges of the classroom, it also needs to meet the budget objectives of the districtââ? said Richard Westercott, chief acoustic engineer, Cetacea Sound Corp. âOne Astronaut speaker can replace as many as four in-ceiling speakers. In addition, it is easier to install, provides a lower cost of ownership, an affordable upgrade path for the future, and is energy efficient. The Astronaut comes with its own wireless microphone and is approximately one – third the cost of other sound field systems.â?
