Sweetwater Offices - VU Meter

Ever wondered how to track the noise level of a room but not quite sure the best way?

Well the guys over at Sweetwater needed to be able to track the live sound levels of the quiet space in their offices. So, what better way to monitor sound by using a VU Meter!

We created a custom panel with a working VU Meter which had a microphone built in so it was able to track the noise in the surroundings.

Once this was created, we had to think of a way to make it bigger.

So, we attached an HD Camera to point directly at the VU Meter which can then be attached to any TV that Sweetwater had.

The end result is a fully working, real-time VU meter that tells everyone in the quiet space if the noise level is too loud or just right!
