BEAVERTON, Ore. — January 22, 2021 — Biamp® today announced the Cambridge Qt™ X Series, the industry’s first sound masking solution to offer complete direct and indirect field sound masking in one easy to manage system. Extending Biamp’s leadership in the sound masking category, the next-generation 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.
"Until now, direct and indirect sound masking systems have been distinct systems with unique components, programming tools, and management experiences, requiring integrators and acoustical consultants to install multiple independent systems for locations with both drop-ceiling and open-ceiling spaces," said Joe Andrulis, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development, Biamp. "The Cambridge Qt X Series eliminates this hassle, allowing integrators to mix and match systems as appropriate and unifying the management and programming of all components in a single sound masking platform."
Biamp’s new Cambridge Qt X Series is a complete, all-in-one sound masking solution that delivers the flexibility, reliability, and ease of installation that integrators desire. It is engineered to incorporate Biamp’s industry-leading 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 is easily 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.
