Sound Masking & Speech Privacy
Why, When, and How to plan a system
Overheard conversations in the work environment are a primary source of employee dissatisfaction, employer productivity concerns, and overall security risks that include a potential increase in regulatory and financial liability.  And while there isn?t a convenient password or encryption system available for the human voice, there is still a technological solution available to the modern workspace.

Sound Masking as an office technology has been around for more than half a century, but may be new to the departments and personnel tasked with the planning, purchasing, and management of these systems.

This presentation sheds light on the topic of sound masking as an information technology by outlining basic acoustic principals which determine the level of distraction created by unwanted conversation, examines goals for confidentiality, and defines criteria for an effective sound masking system.  Goals:

  • Learn about the importance of acoustic privacy & audible information security
  • Identify principles involved in good acoustic technology design and speech privacy
  • Understand what speech privacy is and how it can be quantified
  • How to plan & implement the right masking system for your space
