Jun 20, 2006 8:00 AM
The latest generation of KR Moeller Associates‘ LogiSon Acoustic Network received the Silver Best of NeoCon Award in the Workplace Technologies category, while the company’s Remote Manager Software earned Gold in the Software Technologies category.
The LogiSon Acoustic Network is a networked sound masking, paging and music system used to increase speech privacy and provide noise control in the workplace. The Network’s new Control Panel is Ethernet-enabled, allowing the user to manage the audio settings for facilities of up to 8 million square feet from one location, representing an increase in Network size of 13,000%.
Additional highlights include improved diagnostic capabilities, enhanced security featuring 128-bit encrypted communication and 3-tier password protection, green initiatives such as voluntary North American RoHS compliance, and a Programmable Keypad. The Programmable Keypad and the accompanying Remote Control provide on-demand control of the masking and paging volume in private offices and conference rooms, a must-have for conversations requiring oral privacy, minimal interruptions, or videoconferencing.
The Remote Manager Software runs on a handheld computer, allowing the user to wirelessly control the settings for a single speaker, a group of speakers or the entire Network. The software increases the ease and efficiency of adjustment for both technicians and end-users by allowing a single person to make changes to the masking, paging, music, zone, timer and keypad settings within seconds, while they are standing in the area that will be affected.
KR Moeller Associates Ltd., based in Burlington, Ontario, developed and manufactures the LogiSon Acoustic Network. The company has specialized in sound masking systems since 1978 and its products have been installed in hundreds of millions of square feet of facilities around the world. KR Moeller is honored to be recognized for its leading edge technology by the prestigious Best of NeoCon Awards. Entrants were evaluated by a team of 54 facilities management executives and interior designers based on considerations of functionality, flexibility, quality/durability, aesthetics/style, innovation, pricing and environmental sustainability.
