Mass Notification Systems are Coming to Canada! *

Mass Notification Systems are coming to Canada and the code requirements are now being determined. One area that will require close attention to detail will be the intelligibility of the installed speaker systems. Speech and alert signaling into large reverberant spaces, small areas and outdoor locations must deliver the message that is clearly understood above any difficult acoustic environments and ambient noise levels. Knowing the characteristics of the spaces and the expected or anticipated ambient noise will be critical in designing an intelligible system. These environment characteristics will determine the type of speaker and it’s characteristics that will allow for this intelligibility. The relationship between the message delivered and room acoustics plus ambient noise is called the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). There must be more signal than noise.

*Article reprinted from the TOA Canada Newsletter – A technical description of “Noise” and Speaker Specification considerations will follow in our next Be Tech Savvy.
