Osborne Clarke has advised recalm, known for its ANCOR active noise cancelling technology, on its strategic partnership with the agricultural technology and commercial vehicle manufacturer KRONE. 

Just last week, acoustics specialist recalm presented its award-winning ANCOR communication and noise cancelling system at Agritechnica, the world's leading trade fair for agricultural technology in Hanover, and once again demonstrated how the well-known high-quality audio experience in plug-and-play style can also be used in agricultural machinery. Now, the Hamburg-based company has announced its strategic partnership with agricultural machinery manufacturer KRONE and an investment in recalm by KRONE via Silver Crown Capital SE.

The aim is to significantly reduce noise pollution for drivers of, for example, harvesting machines in their cabs and to ensure a greater sense of well-being through audio entertainment. Thanks to the ANCOR active noise cancelling solution, drivers can not only significantly reduce the noise level at their workplace as desired, but also use the system for communication and entertainment.

The retrofittable solution works in free field, i.e., completely without headphones, and creates a “quiet zone” of 20 to 30 cm in diameter around the driver's head, in which the machine noise is significantly reduced. It also includes a hands-free phone kit, DAB+ radio and a radio connection with user-centred Push-To-Talk, eliminating the need to reach for the phone.

The Osborne Clarke team that advised recalm, led by Maximilian Vocke, consisted of Dana Alpar, Joanna Chudzinski and Benedikt Hülsmann (all Corporate / VC) and Robert Briske and Dr. Jonas Völkel (both IP).
