Room acoustics – an industry with a promising future
How can we change and improve how we hear in enclosed spaces? As early as the first half of the 19th century, experts – from the theater industry in particular, but also architects – were exploring the subject of room acoustics. The first major scientific publications appeared around 1900, but it was to take almost until the turn of the millennium for the topic to be recognized by a broader public. Now, in the 21st century, room acoustics is a field with real potential for the future.
The effects of pleasant acoustics on concentration and health are taken into account when planning modern working environments. In kindergartens, schools and universities, it is also important to consider that learning and teaching function better without disturbing noise and unwanted sound. The situation is similar in buildings that are built specifically for listening, from concert halls to radio studios. Innovative room acoustics are in demand everywhere – for example with systems from akustikplus.
