Yamaha Unified Communications today announced its VSP-2 Speech Privacy System is in stock and available for immediate shipping to the United States and Canada. The VSP-CU2 control unit features user-selectable sound types and volume levels and it supports two, four or eight VSP-SP2 speakers. This sound masking system can be installed quickly into any space to ensure conversations are kept confidential.
Yamaha’s VSP-2 Speech Privacy System prevents information leakage without emitting distracting sound masking audio, creating an environment that makes it easy to converse in almost any office meeting space. Here’s how it works: The system layers in three features for optimal sound masking — high-performance “Info-Masking Technology,” which Yamaha says it developed to mask the human voice in unwanted areas with a sound level that’s 8 dB lower than conventional systems; environmental audio with four audio options that are mixed to the speech sound masker; and four types of sound effects that are added to unobtrusively distract others from hearing private conversations. The control unit allows users to power the system on and off, select their preferred masking sound effect (guitar, piano, music box or digital device) and environmental sound (forest, brook, urban clatter or air conditioner), and set the performance and volume level for a personalized room environment.
The system can be installed around huddle spaces, in open conversation areas and in front of and between small to medium rooms. For installation, the small, light speakers are mounted to the ceiling or wall with the included hardware and speaker cable (non-plenum rated). The back of the control unit features a speaker switch (two, four or eight) and four EQ options based on the configuration of the speakers. More information on the VSP-2 Speech Privacy System is here.
