What's the Difference Between Indirect and Direct Field Sound Masking?

Blog Home Speech privacy / sound masking are a rapidly growing category in the commercial AV market. If you are researching sound masking you may have seen the terms indirect field and direct field to describe masking systems. How do you know which one is best for your facility so that you can make the right choice? Indirect Field Masking AtlasIED has always been a proponent of indirect field sound masking and therefore is usually the solution we recommend as long as it will work in the environment. The key characteristic of a sound masking system for it to do what it is supposed to do, is that the system appear to be invisible to anyone in the area where the masking is deployed. This characteristic is made for indirect masking where the speakers are located either above the ceiling tiles or treatments or below the floor. Since a sound masking speaker is always emitting white or pink noise it can be a distraction to people in the masking area as they can point to the speaker and say "that speaker is making noise and is bothering me". If the speaker is above the ceiling tile, as illustrated in the example below, the listeners' cannot identify the source of the white/pink noise. Additionally, installing the speakers firing up toward the deck above the ceiling tiles allows the sound masking noise to permeate the entire space and fully cover the area so there are no "dead" areas without coverage. Direct Field Masking There are some instances where indirect masking just will not work and direct field masking is the only available option. The key to a direct field masking system is trying to eliminate "dead" spots in the room so that the masking system can appear to be as invisible as possible. The below image illustrates a direct field masking system with a standard in-ceiling speaker. The speaker has a limited dispersion pattern so as is illustrated on the left side of the image, there are "dead" spots in the coverage because the speakers are spaced too far apart for the coverage pattern of the speaker to cover the listener while standing. That may not seem like a big deal because the occupants are normally going to be seated but as people move around the office they will be going in and out of the masking field, which will keep the

Amplified Sound Masking System with Onboard DSP (ASP-MG2240)

The AtlasIED ASP-MG2240 is a two-zone sound masking controller with integrated amplification. This compact device incorporates many useful features including two-channels of amplification, separate analog masking generators with EQ, 24/7 scheduler, balanced Mic/line input, auxiliary input for background audio and a line output.
