Lecture halls

Speaking, listening and understanding

If a speaker amplification system is used it's important that it's adjusted to suit the individual needs of each auditorium or lecture hall. 

In large auditoriums or lecture halls lecturers address students who often sit far away. It is therefore vital that the lecturer’s voice is reflected so that it reaches the whole audience clearly.To achieve this, there should be as little distortion as possible from echoes and background noise, particularly low-frequency sounds such as ventilation, projectors and other technical equipment.

Challenge

  • Improving speech clarity
  • Improving listening comfort
  • Minimising echoes

Solution:

  • Use a sound-absorbing ceiling with exceptional absorption qualities for all speech frequencies
  • Create a speech-reflecting zone in the ceiling where the lecturer normally stands
  • Cover the back wall with wall absorbers
  • Add some wall absorbers on the side walls
