Based in Lisbon, Portugal, Vicoustic is a manufacturer of high-quality, affordable acoustic solutions. Founded in 2007, the research-based company has quickly established a reputation in the international market with its range of innovative acoustic products for use in music and broadcast, home cinema, architectural/acoustic design and industry.
Vicoustic’s engineers work in strategic partnership with other industry sectors, including science institutes and universities, as well as gaining regular feedback from some of Europe’s leading acoustic engineers. Vicoustic’s customers include recording and broadcast studios, education establishments, hotels and restaurants, home cinemas and residential developments, factories, and workplaces.
Acoustic absorption and diffusion panels
The company’s innovative product portfolio includes a variety of absorption and diffusion panels, for example the flagship Wave Wood, a foam-based three-in-one absorber, diffuser and bass trap with uniquely designed slotted wood surface, and the popular cinema premium range of fabric-covered panels, which combines modern design and high acoustic efficiency with maximum fire retardancy.
Portable acoustic systems
Vicoustic is also well known for its portable acoustic systems including the modular Flexi Walls, used for temporary isolation purposes.
Simple, affordable acoustic panels
In 2009, Vicoustic launched its revolutionary Vari Panel, bringing variable acoustic solutions into the realms of affordability for many customers. These unique, simple, affordable acoustic panels are specially designed for venues that have multi-purpose use, for example speeches and music. A fixed-foam panel is combined with a removable wood surface, allowing room acoustics to be adjusted in minutes, without requiring specialist personnel or tools.
Stand-alone passive bass trap
Vicoustic’s recent research into variable acoustics has culminated in the launch of Vari Bass, a unique, stand-alone passive bass trap that can be tuned to fix specific bass frequency issues in a room.
Bespoke acoustic systems
To complement its standard catalogue, Vicoustic offers a range of customized acoustic systems based on preferred ‘look’, room dimensions and available budget. The company’s website includes an easy-to-use, online acoustic calculator with multiple design options, providing instant suggestions and showing product combinations to suit different working requirements. Vicoustic also offers a bespoke consultancy service, where customers can work closely with company engineers to create acoustic systems that are specifically tailored to their individual working needs.
During 2010, Vicoustic’s product development will focus on a range of solutions for architectural and industrial use. This follows the company’s recent launch of three separate business divisions: music and broadcast, hi-fi and home cinema, and industrial.
