Innovative Paging System by Lencore – MUSIC PAGE INTERFACE (MPI)

(WOODBURY, NY) Lencore Acoustics Corp, a manufacturer of commercial sound masking systems announces the availability of its Music Page Interface, a radically different type of paging distribution system that will change the way audio and sound contractors design, install, and manage paging communication systems.
The Lencore Music Page Interface (MPI) replaces all the bulky head end equipment that is typically associated with music and paging systems. With the MPI there is no need for additional amplifiers, separate equalizers, special switching equipment or matching vendors for compatible product interfaces. In fact, the MPI technology is so sophisticated that it can make zone additions, modifications, deletions and other changes to the paging system on the fly and eliminates the need for running multiple home runs back to the electrical closet or through building risers to create separate or additional zones.
When connected to the Lencore Spectra i.Net™ Sound Masking System, the MPI provides the ability to program up to 99 individual zones for paging using standard DTMF tones through a single line telephone wire. The system is also programmed for all call and emergency broadcast paging. The system’s easy to use full one octave band equalizer can be adjusted to either individual zones or can be adjusted for all zones and provides exceptional fine tuning capabilities.
When the MPI is connected to the Spectra i.Net’s web appliance (i.LON®) programming can be set for up to 1.5 million square feet of space through a single device. The creation, modification, addition and deletion of zones or groups for paging and masking can be easily controlled through the i.LON’s web browser using the included Lencore Sound Manager. No software or proprietary software needs to be installed on the client’s side. The Lencore i.Net System is an open platform system. In addition, volume and equalizer settings for paging and music can be programmed through the Sound Manager offering tremendous adjustment and control capabilities with unprecedented flexibility.
The unmatched capabilities of Lencore’s system automatically compensates and readjusts for frequency line loss while ensuring a quality signal that is continuously and uniformly broadcast and distributed throughout the entire system. Essentially this means that throughout the miles of audio wire, line loss will be virtually negligible. This results in a crystal clear page whenever you need it, wherever you are in your facility.
These features and qualities are just some of the benefits of the Lencore Spectra i.Net™ System that make it the only networked sound masking system uniquely qualified to support the masking, paging and music needs for any facility with adjustment capabilities unsurpassed in the industry. for ore inforamtion please visit http://lencore.com/product-services/spectrainet/music-page-interface
Lencore manufactures masking and paging systems including networked systems, in-plenum systems, direct field systems, networked direct field systems, centralized, decentralized, and remote sound masking systems. Lencore systems are UL listed for use in air-handling spaces and have been independently tested to meet ASTM standards for speech privacy.

The advanced Lencore Sound Masking system, along with the Spectra i.Net™ module, allows Crestron® dealers to easily install active functionality in Lencore’s Spectra i.Net™ system and create control features.

Lencore Acoustics Corp. develops and deploys proven, high-performance sound masking, paging and music solutions worldwide. Lencore’s Spectra i.Net™ system revolutionizes the standard for quality and adjustment capabilities for sound masking systems. Sound masking is used to minimize distractions and improve speech privacy in the workplace. The masking sound is subtly introduced into an office environment through speakers typically installed in the plenum and gently raises the background sound levels within the environment to help mask extraneous conversations and limit the amount of distraction that office occupants hear. Sound masking increases the privacy in open and closed work areas to increase employee privacy and reduce noise induced stress in typical work environments.
“Sound masking is a rapidly growing segment within the buildings industry and an incredibly economic way of meeting stringent government mandated noise requirements in work places, most, if not all, Fortune 500 companies are very concerned with the impact on both privacy and productivity loss due to noise in the workplace. Lencore is committed to providing best in class technology and products that are integral to sound masking, paging and music solutions,” said Jonathan Leonard, Lencore’s Vice-President. “Our partnership with a leader in control solutions such as Crestron® broadens our vertical market opportunities for sound masking, paging and music solutions and will provide Crestron® customers with superior products for the office environment.”
“We welcome Lencore Acoustics Corp. to the Integrated Partner Program and are excited about the new opportunities this partnership presents to our dealers,” said Chris Wildfoerster, Director of Business Development, Crestron®. “The addition of this Spectra i.Net™ module enables our dealers to realize the power and versatility of Lencore’s product line and capitalize on the momentum of this fast growing technology.”
