Swedbank Sound Masking

ISA2019 Sessions

Swedbank Sound Masking

 

Abstract

In many public environments customers and staff have to share private information with the risk of being overheard by others. For one of Sweden’s largest banks, Swedbank, Lexter has developed a solution with local sound masking and soundscaping zones that reduces the intelligibility of speech, increasing privacy and adding a pleasant atmosphere.

In this session Margareta Andersson and Alexander Kassberg from Lexter will talk about the multiple functions of this unique solution. They will also give you the background basics on acoustics, psychoacoustics and our sense of hearing which all together builds the foundation of this solution.
