Overview: Cambridge Sound Management, LLC, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is the developer of Qt Quiet technology
We have a distinguished heritage in the field of acoustics. In 1999, acousticians and engineers from Acentech Inc. licensed masking patents and intellectual property to Cambridge Sound Management, LLC. Acentech is the direct descendant of the highly regarded Bolt, Beranek and Newman's acoustics consulting group that was founded in 1948. This group of distinguished acousticians received the American Institute of Architects Honor Award as recognition for having "...created an awareness of acoustical considerations in building design... and integrating solutions based on scientific principles with architectural and artistic concepts."
Today, a select group of worldwide partners that includes a network of manufacturers, resellers, systems integrators and installers provide configuration and installation expertise to thousands of customers of Qt Quiet technology™-based systems. These systems are deployed in over 7 million square feet of home and commercial space ranging in size from modest home offices to millions of square feet of open office environment.
Qt 200 is a highly cost-effective sound masking solution for small to medium-sized projects. Its sleek design, integrated audio input and simple user interface make Qt 200™ the perfect solution for applications ranging from spot treatments to 24,000 square feet of space.
Qt 600 is a highly cost effective, fully integrated sound masking solution that meets the requirements of any workspace, from single floor, multi-zone installations to large multi-building campuses of any complexity. Each module controls 6 zones, covering up to 72,000 square feet and includes 2 standard aux audio inputs for paging and/or music and full amplification for simple audio distribution. Advanced features such as system fault detection, email notification, alarm contact closure integration, individual zone controls, time of day and spectrum tuning are configured and controlled via an intuitive, networked or direct PC connect browser-based software interface.
This innovative 3-in-1 system features cutting-edge audio technology for today’s workplace. Qt PRO is ideal for medium to large-sized workspaces, and those with granular audio zoning requirements. Qt Pro consists of a control module that generates sound and a network of speakers purchased separately. The number of speakers depends on the size of the space.
Oasis Qt is a plug & play, direct-field sound masking system. Applications range from ensuring confidential speech privacy in closed offices to reducing distractions and improving acoustical comfort in open plan areas. Installation size can range from 50 square feet to over 1 million square feet.
Qt emitters are a generation ahead in the marketplace. These miniature, directfield speakers are lightweight and omnidirectional, providing nearly 180 degrees of sound dispersion. At about the size of a coffee cup, these plug-and-play emitters may be used interchangeably with all of Cambridge Sound Management’s sound masking, paging and music systems.
Emitters are most commonly mounted in acoustical ceiling tile, but occasionally separate housings are required to mount emitters in sheetrock or open ceilings. A variety of emitter housing options allow Qt Quiet technology™ to adapt to virtually any workspace.
Cambridge Sound Management manufactures the "greenest" sound masking system on the market and, because of this, Qt Quiet Technology systems are ideal systems for buildings that are applying for LEED® certification.
