(Woodbury, New York –June 13, 2008) Crestron® today announced that Lencore Acoustics Corp, a leading manufacturer of sound masking technologies, has joined the Crestron® Integrated Partner Program, providing its dealers with an intelligent sound masking, paging and music system for fully integrated control systems. 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 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.”
