We have all been to events during which it was difficult to comprehend what was being said by the announcer or performer. Oftentimes the volume is loud enough, but intelligibility is poor. This could be caused by improper room acoustics, an improper sound reinforcement system, or a combination of both.

R & D Industries (RDI) can find the root of problems in existing venues, as well as assist architects in foreseeing problems during the design phase of a new project, and recommend steps to correct these problems. Sometimes issues can be corrected acoustically through room treatments and modifications, and other times changes in the sound reinforcement system can accomplish better intelligibility and overall sound. Our designers take pride in providing clients with the performance they expect, the versatility needed, and the price they can afford.

Oftentimes with schools and other public venues, their facilities are multi-functional for events such as sports, concerts, community receptions, and fund raisers. We work closely with board members, committees, and administration to allow this versatility, as well as provide the performance needed and meet the budget goals.

When designing a venue the acoustics of the space should always be considered. In other words, how are the room's geometry, wall and ceiling materials, playing surface, and sound reinforcement system going to affect the quality of sound within the complex?

Whether planning for the design and construction of a new complex or struggling to achieve better sound quality in an existing venue, our experts work to ensure that correct acoustical characteristics are achieved.

Utilizing state-of-the-art computer modeling techniques, our staff can identify potential acoustical problems in a facility before it is even built, preventing costly post-construction fixes by "doing it right the first time." In the case of existing spaces, we can design solutions for "problem spaces" and offer cost-effective approaches that will help to correct these problems.

In outdoor stadiums and complexes, noise pollution can be minimized and accurately predicted during the design phase of a project in order to minimize the impact of sound propagating into surrounding neighborhoods.

A/V Design

Sound performance is directly correlated to the interaction of a sound reinforcement system with a room's acoustic characteristics. Since no two facilities are designed and constructed in the same way or utilized in the same way, it is paramount that the process of developing an audio system for a facility remains unique to each project.

Our staff understands this when designing a sound reinforcement system that's right for a particular project. Before the design process even begins, we perform an acoustical analysis to gain a thorough understanding of the space's acoustical footprint.

RDI further utilizes computer-aided modeling techniques to examine various system components before actually installing them in a facility. This technology gives us the ability to determine such items as speech intelligibility, direct to reverberant ratios, sound pressure levels, coverage patterns, proper aiming, and much more.

Depending on the intended functionality of a venue, we can further include visual components within the system design such as digital projectors and theatrical or architectural lighting, and provide integrated control of systems throughout a facility. Whatever your goals for an audio/visual system, our staff can design a system that adapts to your needs.
