Bars and night clubs
Bars and night clubs are all about music. Excellent sound quality is an absolute must - at comfortable listening levels during lunchtime, or at full blast late at night. This requires equipment that is capable of adapting to these dynamics. But also: protecting patrons against harmfully loud sound is also a concern.
Our LAEQ logging/monitoring tool (on all SMxx devices) continually measures the sound level, and displays a running average across a preset amount of time (anywhere between 1 minute and 1 hour). A warning is displayed if the level exceeds a limit, which can be set at whatever value the laws or regulations require. In many countries, music venues and bars have to demonstrate that their sound production is always below certain legal limits. With the LAEQ logging module, a file is generated and stored that can be used as proof of compliance with the rules.
