Marathon Petroleum Chooses Sound Domes from Brown Innovations
3/13/2014
Marathon Petroleum recently came to Brown Innovations with a perplexing and seemingly unsolvable problem: how to effectively monitor audio in their command and control centers without the use of isolating and uncomfortable headphones. Conventional speakers created sound bleed from one console station to the next. After trying alternative directional speakers, Marathon chose Brown's Sound Domes as the ultimate solution.

Thanks to the highly focused speakers, operators at Marathon can monitor independent audio experiences, in the same room, without any overlap from one terminal to the next. "The experience is unparalleled! When standing under the domes you can hear everything perfectly, but move away and it completely disappears. It generates a 'cone of silence' of high quality sound, something the other directional speakers did not achieve" said Mike Robell of Marathon Petroleum.

The spherical sound dome mounted overhead focuses sound directly to each listener. The sphere acts as a lens, creating an audio "hologram" where voices are actually heard as if speakers were floating just outside each listener's ears. Amazingly, the technology is so precisely focused, only individuals seated at each screen can hear audio playing through the speaker; others just steps away hear virtually nothing. It's like listening through headphones, but without the headphones.

Brown Innovations (www.browninnovations.com) develops and deploys directional speaker and focused audio technologies for digital signage, museum, kiosk, retail, and tradeshow applications. For more information contact Gregory Matthew at gregm@browninnovations.com.
