AtlasIED SHS Speakers Battle Airport Noise at Military Training Facility

AtlasIED SHS Speakers Battle Airport Noise at Military Training Facility

Presentations given to troops at a military training camp near a busy airport are heard loud and clear thanks to SHS speakers installed by integration firm Ford AV.

After years of struggling to be heard over noisy airport traffic while presenting course material and training information to hundreds of military service members, officials at a military training camp were ready to rest their vocal cords and incorporate a top-notch presentation system into the 209,000-square-foot facility. They contacted national AV integrator Ford AV for an audio presentation system that could be easily retrofitted into several classroom and lecture halls throughout the campus without compromising the unique architecture of each space. The solution: Strategically Hidden Speakers (SHS) from AtlasIED. 

AtlasIED Audio System Promotes Powerful Presentations

“I think of great audio when I think of AtlasIED,” says Greg Banks, Ford commercial account manager, of the company’s decision to install 12 SHS speakers throughout the campus that serves as home base for several military branches and offers training to approximately 1,400 service members. “In the past, presenters had to resort to yelling to be heard,” adds Ford project engineer Daniel Bravo. “It was definitely time for a better approach.” 

Speaker Design is Kind to Campus Cosmetics

To achieve the coverage necessary to be heard over the noise from the nearby airport, each of five large classrooms and lecture halls would be outfitted with several AtlasIED SHS units connected to 70-volt, 2-channel amplifiers from AtlasIED. Cosmetics played a huge part in the project, as well, notes Bravo. “In addition to providing the sound dispersion necessary to be heard over the noise of the nearby airport, the SHS speakers afforded us the ability to easily fuse the technology with the unique structure of the facility’s pitched wooden ceiling.” 

Constructed of wooden tiles, the angled ceiling was an important architectural feature that needed to be preserved. The small form factor and simple installation method employed by AtlasIED’s SHS products enabled Ford to install a robust sound system without disrupting the ceiling cosmetics. “There was no room for error,” says Bravo. “If we were to damage a tile, there would be no way to easily replace it.” 

The Adaptive Dispersion Lens of the SHS measures a mere three inches in diameter, so the Ford installation team was able to drill into the ceiling tiles with a hole saw instead of a jigsaw. This minimized the impact on the wood and ensured a clean, accurate cut. To downplay the visual appearance of the dispersion lens that would protrude a few inches from the ceiling, Ford contacted the AtlasIED DesignLab prior to installation to custom match each speaker’s lens and micro trim to the grain of the wooden ceiling surface. The high-resolution printing process employed by the DesignLab rendered speakers that blended seamlessly into the training facility’s ceiling surface, yet filled the space evenly with audio via AtlasIED’s patented 180-degree dispersion technology. 

AtlasIED Amps Hide from Sight, Too

Ford wired the speakers of each classroom and lecture hall to its own local 70-watt, two-channel amplifier, the DPA-102PM, from AtlasIED. Due to the small form factor and unique pole-mounted design of this model, Ford was able to install each amplifier above the ceiling, completely concealed from sight. “There wasn’t ample space within the facility to put in a rack room, so the ceiling-mounted amps were ideally suited for this project,” Bravo says.  

A Perfect Union of Form and Function

Thanks to design and installation ingenuity from Ford and top-notch products that marry form and function from AtlasIED, the military base is able to provide high-quality training to service personnel in an environment that’s audibly comfortable and free of distractions. Students are able to clearly hear presentations no matter how noisy nearby air traffic gets, and the eye-pleasing design the AtlasIED Strategically Hidden Speakers and pole-mounted amplifiers raise no visual conflict with the unique architectural features of the facility.

AtlasIED and MiTek Help Residential Integrators Expand into Commercial Markets by Showcasing Innovative Audio Solutions During CEDIA Expo 2019

New high-end audio solutions from AtlasIED deliver premium audio quality, superior sound control, and appealing aesthetics, making it easy for residential integrators to break into commercial markets.

PHOENIX, AZ and DENVER, CO (Sept. 6, 2019) – MiTek, parent company of AtlasIED, announced today it will showcase for CEDIA Expo 2019 attendees a selection of AtlasIED’s audio solutions and systems that are well-suited for residential integrators who work in or want to expand into commercial settings. The powerful AtlasIED (and MiTek) lineup on display emphasizes aesthetics, functionality, and exceptional audio fidelity—important attributes in both residential and commercial environments. Installation ease is a hallmark of the entire product portfolio highlighted, offering residential integrators a solid base to reach markets including corporate, retail, healthcare, educational, and hospitality.

“We understand the needs of the commercial integrator, and through our presence at CEDIA Expo, hope to enlighten and inspire residential integrators to explore new avenues of business,” says AtlasIED President and CEO John Ivey. “We offer a full range of products that are uniquely designed to straddle both residential and commercial applications, and help integrators who currently focus on residential projects transition easily and seamlessly into the world of commercial AV installation.”  

Z Series All-in-One Sound Masking Solutions

Sound masking systems may be intended for use in healthcare facilities and clinics and office spaces, but they employ many of the same types of products and technologies utilized by sound systems in homes. Sound masking systems are crucial to the overall acoustics of a commercial environment, just as a residential sound system is able to create the proper acoustics for a home theater setting. 

Helping AV integrators apply their knowledge of audio to the needs of commercial environments is the AtlasIED Z Series. This all-in-one sound masking solution consists of either a four-zone (Z4) or two-zone (Z2) high-definition acoustical system. With integrated pink and white noise generators for sound masking, plus a mic-line input for paging/background music and a Bluetooth receiver for wireless music transmission, the Z Series provides high-quality speech privacy, high-definition background music, and paging functionality. 

The Z Series models are easy to install, with a slim, clean design that is aesthetically pleasing in virtually any application. Models can be mounted in-wall, on-wall, or in a rack. Once installed, all hardware and wiring are centrally located behind the secure front panel, making it convenient and easy to access for post-installation service. The front panel display allows for system programming as well as end-user control. As an accessory, the wireless privacy enhancement button compliments this ease-of-control for users.

EZSYS Packages Bundle Everything Together for Complete Sound Masking and Music and Paging Solutions

Every residential AV integrator knows that the best audio systems require products that are able to be integrated easily together. The same is true of sound masking and music and paging solutions for offices, healthcare facilities, and other commercial environment. To make it easy to sell and install sound masking and business music and paging systems, AltasIED has packaged the necessary parts together into single cartons. Everything an integrator needs—proper amplification, system control, and speakers are included. The only components that need to be added are audio sources and cables. As a bonus, the box illustrates how to connect everything, including cable and tool requirements. 

Specific packages include:

The EZSYS-PRIVACY-A is a complete sound masking solution designed to reduce ambient speech and thereby improve speech privacy. Maintaining privacy of speech is particularly beneficial to open-plan offices, doctors’ examination rooms, and other environments where confidentiality is crucial. The package includes an amplified sound masking generator and industry-best sound masking speakers. 

The EZSYS-BGM-S includes everything an integrator needs to outfit a business with a complete music and paging system. Components in the package include amplification, system control, and speakers, plus thorough installation instructions. This system is designed to be surface mounted. 

The EZSYS-BGM-CPHD is a business music and paging system in a box and features a patented self-diagnostic technology called “Push Here Diagnostics.” It includes the same components of the surface-mounted EZSYS BGM system, but it meant to be installed within ceiling tiles

The EZSYS-BGM-C business and music paging system is intended for ceiling tile applications and includes everything found in the EZSYS-BGM-CPHD except for the Push Here Diagnostics feature. 

Strategically Hidden Speaker (SHS) Combines Subtle Form and Optimal Function

Concealing speakers to preserve the aesthetics of a home is a standard practice of AV integrators. It’s a method that’s also commonplace in retail and hospitality venues, as well as corporate boardrooms, museums, and architecturally interesting environments. 

The Strategically Hidden Speaker from AtlasIED is a step forward in loudspeaker design for residential and commercial clients, as it virtually disappears into the ceiling. 

The concealed design of the SHS is achieved by Adaptive Dispersion Lens Technology, a new, patented waveguide form. Only a 3-inch diameter lens and a micro trim ring are visible on the ceiling. The dispersion lens can be easily painted allowing the SHS to blend in without compromising the architectural aesthetic of the room. Easy to specify and install, the SHS Series speakers include three dispersive lens configurations for enhanced flexibility and functionality in any room, regardless of ceiling height. 

For design sensitive environments, AtlasIED’s DesignLab™ custom print process uses an incredibly accurate UV-printer to replicate colors, textures, and patterns, enabling the SHS to blend into any environment. Simply upload an image, provide a numeric color specification, or send a 6-inch sample of the ceiling tile to be matched, and the experts at AtlasIED will do the rest, delivering perfectly matched SHS lenses for any project.  

“Years in development, the SHS Series delivers highly intelligible audio with optimal bass response and ultra-wide, 180-degree dispersion,” explains Ivey. “Offering full coverage in any environment, the SHS is a first of its kind speaker that puts the needs of the architectural and design community first, while delivering the audio quality today’s integrators demand for their clients.”

Communications systems are important elements in homes and businesses.AltasIED offers a way to transition into K-12 educational and healthcare markets, as well as other facilities requiring quick and efficient notification through audio and visual messaging, with its third-generation IPX Series IP endpoints. 

The IPX Series is an excellent solution for expanding VoIP or SIP communications systems by integrating endpoints to offer greater coverage than traditional handset-based systems. The IPX series includes speakers and visual displays, all with the foundational features found in previous models that have been serving the market for almost 20 years, now with modern styling and an upgraded high-resolution display.

Through a Unified Communications (UC) environment or the AtlasIED GLOBALCOM.IP ecosystem, the IPX Series delivers smart automation, including pre-programmed notifications for common functions like bells and critical alerts. A comprehensive library of pre-recorded messages is available through GLOBALCOM.IP or .EDU, which can be broadcast across the facility or directed to specific zones.
