Have you invested in a home cinema or recording studio but feel that something is missing in terms of sound? Then it's most likely due to poor acoustics in the room.

We have some good advice for those who are building a home cinema or sound studio. We have the acoustic materials you need for different solutions. To find the solutions that work best for you, we recommend contacting experts in such spaces, Sintef has developed standards for this and is a good source of information. The Byggforsk series, sheet 527 315 Studio, provides you with research-based information on this.

Sound is just as important as visuals for the perfect film experience. Optimising the acoustics is crucial to creating the right sound environment in a home cinema. We have extensive experience in this area and can help you achieve this.

A home cinema is characterised by expensive electronics, dark surfaces, angled walls and ceilings, lots of absorbent surfaces throughout the room, walls, floors and ceilings. Cinema-like furnishings and, of course, a massive soundscape. A home cinema should be isolated from the rest of the home in such a way that sound and vibration do not disturb others in the home. Not least, it is important to avoid sound and vibrations spreading to neighbours.

To achieve the desired result, it is important to understand how sound behaves in the room. Exactly how sound behaves in an individual home cinema/music room will of course vary greatly depending on the layout and size of the room and the sound system. When the absorbers attenuate sound, this means that they attenuate the "reverberation" that occurs in the room and not the sound directly from the speakers. The speakers are perceived at exactly the same volume, the damping simply means that you don't hear the echo from the tones.

After the absorbers have been installed, you will usually find that the sound image has changed somewhat; this is easily solved by adjusting the sound values on the system.

A TV room is easy to relate to, and is often used as a common gathering point for the family. It benefits from a balanced sound environment adapted to both a great film experience and conversations over the coffee table.

In the TV room, absorbers are normally installed on the ceiling and walls to reduce reverberation.

In recent years, digital meetings have become more common. During digital meetings, sound quality is the most important factor for seamless communication. This places new demands on the rooms used.

Fitting video conference rooms with absorbers is crucial for good speech clarity and speech perception, which in turn makes for more effective digital meetings. Ideally, the two conference rooms used during a video conference should be equally well refurbished, but even with a refurbished room, there will be a marked improvement in sound quality.

 The NS8175-2019 standard sets out requirements for reverberation time in video conference rooms. These rooms are regulated by law because they are part of our working life and workplaces.

There is no standard for how to achieve the right acoustic conditions. We have therefore developed, based on considerable experience, good methods for solving various problems related to conference rooms. Using remote inspection or sound measurements, we design solutions that ensure good speech clarity and speech perception in the room.

Specialised centre for sound control

We are Norway's only specialist centre for sound control that has developed a system for measuring and mapping, calculating how much you need, through to a completed and tested solution.

All our calculations and measurements are based on the standard NS8175:2019 - Sound in buildings and NS8178:2014 (music and rehearsal rooms). Note that the 2012 standard still applies according to the Building Regulations, TEK 17. Soundproofing products recommended will be in accordance with CE 13964:2014 or equivalent.

We can help you with all your acoustic solutions as we have our own production facilities. Take a look contact  and we'll find a solution for your specific needs.
