Extron Awarded United States Patent for Flat Field® Speaker Technology

ff220t_4214101_01c_pub.jpg

Extron Electronics is pleased to announce that it has been granted a United States Patent for its Flat Field® Technology. Flat Field is an Extron exclusive loudspeaker technology that helps sound system designers address an important challenge: ensuring uniform delivery of audio content to all participants in a classroom, conference room, or boardroom. While this can be achieved by spacing a sufficient number of ceiling speakers throughout the room, designers often have to limit the quantity of speakers due to budget concerns. The result is inadequate coverage where the level is too high in some areas and too low in others. Flat Field Technology solves this problem with a proprietary speaker design that produces even sound pressure levels over a sound field much wider than a conventional ceiling speaker. With this uniform sound distribution, two Flat Field speakers can deliver the same audio coverage that would have required four or more typical ceiling speakers. This technology is available in the Extron FF 120, FF 120T, and FF 220T ceiling tile speakers. more
