Yesterday, I stopped over at Lencore‘s booth (C4079). It never fails that I will get some good industry conversation from VP Jonathan Leonard and Marketing Director Jodi Jacobs. Sound masking is the general name of the company’s game, but it’s the way the company is sharing in the open-platform and integration conversations that’s really inspiring. When asked what Leonard was seeing at this year’s show compared to year’s past, he says, “Everything is getting smarter.” Indeed, it is. If you want to talk industry shop with people who are tapped in and passionate, head over to Lencore—it will remind you just why this industry has so much to offer.
The company will be partnering with Crestron. Now facilities that deploy Lencore sound-masking systems, adjustment can be made to the system from the same Crestron controller that’s tapped in to change the lighting, drapes, projectors, etc. Jacobs says sound-masking is part of creating the appropriate environment. Where you might need a high level of masking in some situations, that room—most likely a conference room—would later change functions that don’t need as much sound masking. With masking integrated into the controller system, ambiance grows more sophisticated.
