Sound & Communications is not an audio-only magazine, given our robust coverage of video, lighting and control systems. However, every aspect of audio technology that applies to commercial facilities is covered extensively in our magazine. We explore audio solutions for government facilities, houses of worship, education campuses, retail stores, corporate facilities, entertainment venues, performing arts centers, theme parks and attractions, auditoriums and hospitality venues. Among the audio-centric topics we cover are sound reinforcement, audio conferencing, voice-over-IP, audio-over-IP, soundmasking, assistive listening, audio signal processing, acoustics and amplification. Products covered include wired microphones, wireless systems, loudspeakers, amplifiers, mixing boards, conferencing systems, patchbays, absorptive material, acoustical treatment, wiring and more. Sound & Communications’ monthly columnist, Peter Mapp, PhD, FASA, FAES, whose “Sound Advice” covers a different audio-centered topic every month, has written for the magazine for well over a decade.
