This month we welcome Principal Acoustics Consultant, Tony Stacey to our expanding team of acoustic experts.
Tony brings with him a wealth of knowledge of the Speech Transmission Index (STI) method for assessing speech intelligibility and has published papers addressing the STI-PA (Public Address) measurement system, as well as the problems associated with the diverse ways that a space can be classified as passing or failing the intelligibility targets of different standards. Tony has written papers for the Institute of Acoustics and The Institute of Sound, Communications & Visual Engineers on this and other electroacoustic subjects.
During his tenure at AMS Acoustics, Tony developed their measurement methodologies and analysis processes and was responsible for the condition of the specialist equipment, including purpose-built test laboratories. He has also assisted most industrial loudspeaker manufacturers with the development of their BS EN 54-24 products.
Tony is a Council member of the Institute of Sound, Communications, and Visual Engineers as well as the Chair of their Standards Committee and a member of their Talker Training Group.
He is also a member of the British Standards Institute BS 5839-8 Fire Detection and Fire Alarm Systems for Buildings Committee, assisting them with the sections relating to acoustics and speech intelligibility.
We wish Tony a warm welcome as he joins our London office.
