Every month RBA hold an internal seminar whereby each consultant gets a chance to share their experience/knowledge on a topic which interests them most with the rest of the team.
This month’s seminar was held by Callum Brewer, who covered the topic of Noise Limiters for Music Entertainment Venues. A relevant choice of topic given the vast array of projects RBA have been involved with in this area of consultancy.
Noise limiters for amplified entertainment systems play an important role in venues located within close proximity to noise sensitive properties, e.g. club and pubs. This is because when set correctly, they automatically control and limit the maximum level of music played within the premises. This allows the venue to easily operate without causing undue noise disturbance which would otherwise prove difficult.
The seminar discussed the different types of noise limiters and their varying applications, as well as explaining the procedure used to determine a limiting level. The principle in setting up and calibrating these units was also discussed.
Be At One bars located in Kings Cross and Islington are just a couple of examples where RBA Acoustics was involved in calibrating the noise limiters and determining the noise limiting levels.
