How to Distribute Quality Audio and Video in Your Business

How to Distribute Quality Audio and Video in Your Business
  • Centralize Control of Your Technology
  • Invest in the Proper Equipment
  • Protect Your Property’s Distinct Style

Why You Need to Invest in an Audio/Video System

Any business, whether it’s a sports bar or hotel, can benefit from a dedicated AV system. Having a professional solution in place, particularly as part of a commercial automation system, makes it easy for you to set the right ambiance, communicate with employees and engage customers. In this blog, we explain how this technology can be used in businesses throughout Kauai, Hawaii.


Centralizing Control

By incorporating your AV into a commercial automation system, you can access all your technology on a smartphone, touchpad or tablet.
  • Set the Right Ambiance
    • Adjust the volume and playlist in your restaurant, office or hotel at the touch of a button. Intuitive control lets you pick out music that enhances your brand while creating the perfect ambience—say a soothing instrumental playlist at your hotel spa.
    • Create scenes within your system to transition smoothly:
      • Use an “Evening” scene to transition from day to night (or lunch to dinner service) by closing the shades, turning up the lights (or dimming them in a more romantic setting), and changing the music.
  • Enhance Office Communication
    • Automate your boardroom to run more efficient meetings and conference calls. You can create scenes to prepare the room for any activity:
      • For example, a “Video Conference” scene rolls down your screen, turns on your projector and sets your display to conference mode. All you have to do is dial the number.
    • Incorporate the speakers you use to distribute music into an intercom system. Use your tablet or smartphone to page a particular room and immediately communicate with employees.
 

Installing the Right Equipment

It’s also important to invest in the right equipment to get the most out of your system. This is where you benefit from having a professional familiar with the top brands in the industry.
  • Finding the Right Speakers
    • In most commercial environments you want to invest in in-wall and in-ceiling speakers with wide-dispersion to get uniform sound while protecting your space’s décor. Unless you’re running a sports bar or club, you want your sound to be heard but not seen.
  • Mounting Your Video Displays
    • Whether you want to share beautiful images in your hotel lobby or have various TVs playing in a restaurant, we help you find the right mounting option:
      • In a lobby or boardroom setting, televisions should be mounted flat on the wall for easier viewing and a sleek look.
      • In a sports bar where you have multiple televisions, find the right mounting angles so as many people as possible have a clear view.
  • Incorporating Screens and Projectors
    • Outdoor screens for movie screenings, training or promotions should be paired with bright projectors with a high lumens count.
    • Use retractable screens for training rooms and boardrooms so they can be put away when not in use to optimize your space.
 
From the right equipment to a comprehensive control solution, we cover every aspect of your business’ AV needs. Contact Pacific Audio and Communications for a consultation.

For Commercial Builders, Automation is the Key to Success

For Commercial Builders, Automation is the Key to Success
  • Give Buyers What They Want
  • Start with a Plan
  • Trust the Automation Experts

The Demand for Commercial Automation is Rapidly Growing

Smart buildings are the big new trend, and construction firms are starting to take note. More and more businesses are seeking out builders who have experience in constructing commercial buildings with integrated automation systems. Is your construction firm ready for this shift in buyer need? Keep reading to learn about the benefits of integrating commercial automation and how your Oahu, HI construction company can get started.

Enhance Your Offerings

  • Personalized Solutions: Today’s business owners don’t want cookie-cutter buildings. They want buildings that are perfectly tailored to their business image and needs. Automation technology offers an easy way to provide that customization while still keeping initial construction costs low.
  • Everything in One Go: Builders often work with many different contractors, bringing in companies for A/V, security, lighting design, networking, etc. When you work with an automation company, you’re able to knock out many outsourced aspects of construction in one go. Everything from the digital phone systems to the business access control can be handled by the same skilled and experienced company.
 

How to Get Started with Commercial Automation

Partner with an Automation Company

Builders and architects don’t have to take on the task of automation on their own. When you partner with an established automation company, you can rest easy knowing that they have the skill and experience to weave the technology seamlessly into your building design.
  • Collaborative Effort: The automation contractor will work with your construction company from start to finish, offering guidance on everything from the initial plan through to the final optimization of the audio video system or lights.

Start from the Beginning

A common mistake that builders make is waiting until construction is complete before they bring in someone to do the automation. However, many elements of automation design and implementation are best accomplished before the building is finished, such as:
  • Pre-Wiring: Automation often requires different wiring than your typical commercial building would have, especially if the building needs to support a large number of high-definition televisions or have completely reliable wireless signals throughout. To keep the building design clean, it’s best to do the wiring before walls are closed up.
  • Equipment Placement: If the building is going to have hidden equipment, such as Wi-Fi boosters or control panels, it’s best to start planning on where those devices will need to be installed early.
  • Lighting Design: Placing and programming smart light fixtures and sensors is an art in and of itself. With the right lighting design, commercial buildings can promote a unique ambiance while also saving on energy costs. If the automation comes after construction is complete, the possibilities for specialized lighting design are significantly restricted.
 

Take the First Step

Is it time for your construction firm to embrace commercial automation? Pacific Audio and Communications works with builders throughout Hawaii to provide superior automation systems in both new construction and remodels.
