Boston Herald Radio

    The Boston Herald Radio wanted to undergo a major soundproofing overhaul within their Boston based radio station to improve the acoustics and performance on the radio. After all, they were in the business of sounding good. The radio station broadcasts news, sports, and political coverage on 1510AM and 830AM radio. They also do video of political interviews for their online viewers. Unfortunately, the soundproofing solutions they had purchased “online” weren’t improving the quality of the sound on the air. The reverberation in the studio was too high.

    The station producer called Sonic-Shield’s parent company, New England Soundproofing to see if their products could make the difference they were looking for. Our solution: REVRB® Acoustical Panels produced by New England Soundproofing.

    We removed the glued on fiberglass panels that weren’t working and created a custom system for the radio station. Along with basic REVRB® Acoustical Panels, we included screen printed REVRB®  Acoustic Art panels incorporating beautiful Boston area photos. According to Tom Shattuck, executive producer of the station: “The guys came up with the idea to use iconic photographs taken by our photographers here at the Herald to turn the studio into a virtual art gallery. It’s a showpiece now, which is important because we have presidential candidates, celebrities and media from around the globe coming in here.” 

    The centerpiece of the acoustic overhaul? A unique Acoustic Panel Green Screen was built that acted like a digital backdrop where, during filming, backgrounds could be inserted behind the hosts, but the panel would also absorb the noise and reverberation from hard surfaces within the broadcast studio.
