Studios for television companies have come of age and are gradually moving from dark enclosed studios into open, light and transparent media centres, with glazed partitioning playing a major role in this transformation. Optima has worked with several of the top media companies to ensure their new image is matched by exceptional acoustic performance.
Media centres and recording studios demand the highest acoustic standards. This is largely due to impressive advancements in technology, which have dramatically improved the quality of broadcasting in recent years. To maximise these developments, it is critical that media environments achieve the very best levels of acoustic control.
Glazed partitions can play a big part in creating spaces that not only look striking but offer impressive functionality and technical performance.
At Optima, we invest a lot of time and expertise into acoustic research and development. All of our products are tested for acoustic performance in a UKAS accredited laboratory. We have our own acoustically qualified Technical Manager who is on hand to offer professional advice to help you select the right products to suit your specific acoustic requirements.
Additionally, our expert team of Project Managers and installers, equipped with years of experience and knowledge, are specially trained to look out for the potential pitfalls on site to ensure there are no acoustic weaknesses that might compromise the acoustic performance of our glass partitions.
Optima’s acoustic expertise and design capability were invaluable on the prestigious BBC Media City project in Manchester, where unprecedented acoustic ratings needed to be achieved.
Similarly, global media giant Al Jazeera Media network, who selected London’s iconic Shard building for their new European headquarters, required bespoke high acoustic screens in their programme studio. They turned to Optima for technical advice and assistance in designing and installing glazed partitions that provided the best possible acoustic environment.
Not only do our products perform, but our skilled teams of people have the experience and knowledge necessary to deliver highly specialist and challenging projects such as these.Discuss your project requirements
