MINNEAPOLIS, MN (July 12, 2011) – The use of video in education offers a world of opportunities beyond the virtual field trip.

Acoustics First Sonora® Panels Capture Sound

Acoustics First Sonora Acoustical Panels

Sonora panels eliminate sound and reduce reverberation. These acoustical panels are available in many sizes and colors.

Like the dry sands of the Sonoran desert, the Sonora® Series of acoustical panels absorb sound to dry up echo and reverberation. The sound is lost in the landscape of acoustical fibers to improve speech intelligibility and silence room overtones. Removing the excess sound of the room improves the ability of equipment to efficiently produce crystal clear sound. Sonora panels mount to the walls or can be configured as ceiling tiles, baffles or clouds. Available in many standard sizes and colors, they can also be custom cut to meet specific requirements or shaped to create designs to accentuate room décor.
