Biamp Just Mic Dropped Every Other Sound-Masking Manufacturer With Cambridge Qt X Series

Biamp announced the Cambridge Qt X Series, the industry’s first sound-masking solution to offer complete direct and indirect field sound masking in one system. Then Qt X Series helps protect speech privacy, reduce noise distractions and increase acoustic comfort in every type of facility — regardless of the architectural design or ceiling type. The new Qt X lineup also directly supports paging and background music with no additional components.

Biamp says the new Cambridge Qt X Series is a complete, all-in-one sound-masking solution that’s easy to install and incorporates Biamp’s QtPRO direct-field and DynasoundPRO indirect technologies, making the Qt X ideally suited for office environments that require both system types in a single facility. Qt X can be interfaced with a building’s life-safety system out of the box, ensuring proper coordination during emergencies.

Additionally, Qt X features built-in support for paging and background music sources. Sources connected to any Qt X controller can be routed to any other networked Qt X controller to be played within zones under its control, making building-wide paging and music distribution flexible and simple.

The series is available in eight models and supports Dante and AVB media distribution. Qt X is compatible with existing Qt direct-field and DynasoundPRO indirect emitters. In addition, the new sound masking family seamlessly integrates with Biamp’s extensive portfolio of AV technologies as well as third-party Dante-based devices.

It will be interesting to see how companies like AtlasIED and Lencore respond as this makes them look five years behind.
