At airports, rail stations, and other transit facilities, intelligible speech dissemination is vital.
How do you ensure that sound travels effectively in a bustling international airport? Can garbled announcements become a thing of the past? If you've ever missed a gate change announcement or hidden under headphones to escape the noise from a crackling PA system while waiting for your train, you know the frustrations of poor audio quality at transportation hubs.
Clear messages can mean the difference between making your connection on time and missing your scheduled departure. Biamp's Vocia family provides exceptional paging quality, and allows messages to be delivered to specific zones. Built-in ambient noise compensation technology allows the paging volume to adjust up or down based on real-time ambient noise levels. Vocia also accommodates delayed or simultaneous messaging, allowing pages to be delivered on a timed basis so they reach specific transit stations at the same time or based on scheduled arrivals. Regardless of their efficiency, noisy transportation facilities can be stressful for passengers, and research has shown that soundscapes can help to put people at ease. Many airports, train stations, and local public transportation authorities have begun implementing soundscapes to calm passengers' nerves. Vocia supports soundscaping along with paging, allowing facility operators to add background music with ease.
While Biamp can't prevent flight delays or make the trains run on time, our equipment gives you the flexibility and power to design systems that clearly convey local and networked paging, messaging, background music, and more.
