Oasis QT Improves Speech Privacy in Office Environments
Cambridge Sound Management's Oasis QT is a plug-and-play technology that uses a narrow range of frequencies to mask human speech. The Oasis QT is about as loud as an office HVAC system and its emitters can be installed in ceiling tiles or directly on beams, furniture, or fixtures. The Oasis QT meets ASTM E1130 for speech privacy and allows for an open office layout that uses resource-efficient lighting and fewer materials.
