Digital Production | Recording | Broadcast Studios Acoustics

Troy Acoustics™ and its personnel have been involved in the Broadcasting, Movie and Recording industries for well over thirty years. Troy Acoustics™ has designed and installed acoustical treatments for dozens of facilities, for both new and updating purposes. The Troy System™ products, designs and installation techniques have provided quality, noise free, environments for all types of facilities where original programming is produced, enhanced or modified.

NOISE ISOLATION: The Troy System™ products and installations can reduce unwanted outside-the-facility noise incursions, as well as eliminate internal sounds that are developed by the facility itself. Outside sound levels such as vehicular traffic, trains, aircraft and local construction are minimized to well below the threshold of interfering with inside-the-studio operations. The Troy System designs, when implemented, WILL provide lower NC levels than other acoustical fiberglass products. This lower NC level creates the perfect rooms for Voice Over recording, Mixing or “On Air” production, GUARANTEED!

REVERBERATION CONTROL: The same Troy System™ that can provide a CERTIFIED STC rating of 72 and lower will also provide high absorption of NRC values. The Troy System materials can be designed to integrate with HVAC, lighting systems and grids. The Troy System GUARANTEE is the choice of major broadcasting facilities nationwide.

MEETS NFPA 286: The Troy System™ meets the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) 286: STANDARD METHODS OF FIRE TESTS FOR EVALUATING CONTRIBUTION OF WALL AND CEILING INTERIOR FINISH TO ROOM FIRE GROWTH, AND other guidelines set by government and private entities.

UL HIGHEST RATING IN INDUSTRY: smoke developed of ZERO (0) and flame spread ZERO (0). The UL fire rating of Zero makes the Troy System a safer choice over competing fiberglass products.

SYSTEM USED IN MULTIPLE BROADCAST APPLICATIONS: Troy System™ products are also utilized in other facility areas such as edit booths, post production areas, quality control technical areas, conference rooms and areas with a high incidence of internally-generated noise, such as rack rooms, server areas and other specialized areas within the facility.

Radio control rooms and production areas also are benefiting from our products and designs. The transference to all digital operations has placed a lot of new sound/noise reduction requirements on these types of facilities and our design and install process lends to those required facility changes that bring the facility up to the new technical standards.

Acoustics for the Digital Age

Whatever side of the media business you’re in, digital age technology demands heightened acoustics for these modern audio sensitive environments.

Take the process of laying down recording content in its raw form. With the specifications for 7.1 surround sound, Dolby, and AES recording, the industry requires maximum protection from noise generated in adjacent spaces. Audio engineers and user groups demand sophisticated absorbency in the frequencies that matter most.

And the Troy System delivers.

In the processing end, your sophisticated tools for audio sweetening, compression, expansion and equalization need sophisticated acoustics for your optimal working environment. And Troy delivers again, with a Noise Criteria results of (NC) 18 to put you at or below the industry standard.

Best of all, the Troy System delivers everything you need with a wall thickness up to 67% less than traditional soundstage and studio design.

We all know, great content is never an accident. A brilliant soundscape can lift a motion picture, or a masterful soundtrack to greatness.

Let Troy engineering excellence help get you there.

Digital Production | Recording | Broadcast Studios Acoustics

The Troy System can turn a metal warehouse into a live, on-air studio. Troy’s designs for studios, recording rooms and screening rooms can achieve an NC 18 rating with reverberation time of .75 seconds.

The combination of Troy Board and Troy Wool absorbs a tremendous amount of sound energy. The Troy “OnAir” System can be shipped anywhere in the world.

Troy System Wall Designs Turns Metal Warehouse into LIVE ON AIR Studio

Troy Board (TB) is a wood fiber Portland cement board that possesses high acoustical absorption at the low end frequencies. Combining this with Troy Wool (TW), an organic mineral wool material, creates the Troy “OnAir” System. 

Local vendors can supply the vertical studs (wood or steel) and gypsum board. Local labor can install per Troy “On Air System” shop drawings.
