The sound is targeting your ears as you are in a sound bubble, at the same time people around you can hear absolutely nothing, and you hear as if a person talks straight in your ear, this is great. A very good idea allowing to practice social distancing.

Since the loudspeaker, we hadn't invented much, using headphones creates limits, and this is a real technological breakthrough, it is a complex tech and it meets current needs.

Whatever the use cases considered, the improvement of the customer experience is undeniable: management of the flow of people (queue), points of sale, media spaces and security (alarm)

Different application scenarios

Provide an isolated in-store sound experience

Focused speakers using directional sound technology are used to isolate sound to a specific area in the retail shop. Only the person in the predetermined spot can hear the broadcast. A built-in sensor detects motion thus optimising broadcast time

Engage customers by providing sound to advertising displays

Highly targeted sound localisation allows providing separate sound experiences to numerous advertising displays in the same open space

Attract attention to your digital signage from long distance

Only commuters who enter a specific location can hear the broadcast. Spoken language messages are perfectly intelligible even when broadcasted from a 6 meter high installation in a noisy train station.

With the help of Model A focused speaker installed next to displays, in an open space, there were isolated sound zones created. Thus capturing the attention of customers entering the targeted area and reducing sound pollution for others not in the targeted area.

In the context of current health crisis, we had to stop the use of headphones, which were used to provide access to educational content in a significant number of spaces in the museum. Akoustic Arts technology has allowed us to reopen our exhibition rooms and provide content, while retaining the advantages of headphones: confidentiality, but without its flaws: physical contact.

The installation of Akoustic Arts sound showers on the entire platform made it possible to reduce by 100% the risk of being too close to the edge of the platform by when trains arrive by delivering a targeted alert message encouraging travelers to move back.

The confidential intercom is very interesting in particular at the level of the hospital counters to ensure confidentiality. Better acoustics allow peaceful exchanges between interlocutors by reducing tensions linked to misunderstandings.

Frequently asked questions

Sound bubble

We have arranged the emission points in circles for excellent distribution of the sound, even in noisy environments. This patented technology creates an effect which we call a sound bubble.
The sound attenuation level is -24dB at ± 30 °.

Sound quality

With a computing capacity of 2.4 billion operations per second, we have integrated patented digital signal processing modules to make the sound as clear and loud as possible with zero background noise.

Easy to install

As a compact 23.2cm and 1.2kg square, the A fits perfectly museum displays or audiovisual systems. Choose your audio source (either 3.5mm balanced or unbalanced jack, or optical cable) then play your connected audio. In case you are planning to use multiple speakers - link them up using the optical output instead of using plenty cables.

Multiple functions

Noisy space? Turn boost mode on. Quiet space? Activate the presence detector that stops audio broadcast when a person leaves the targeted area. For voice content, activate the voice mode to enhance speech intelligibility.
