The right commercial audio-visual system is a true asset in the office space. It’s the ultimate tool in aiding communication, collaboration, long-distance conferencing and more. Like any tool though, designing and installing them is something you want to get right to gain the most benefit.
Executing the perfectly designed system is much more difficult than it seems and even small mistakes can cost you in money and functionality. Whether it is for new construction or retrofitting older structures, there is a lot of science behind meeting commercial audiovisual needs.
Commercial Visual Concerns
In some regard, designing the visual component of the A/V system may seem purely formulaic. Along with the right system components you need an easily accessible power supply and the ability to meet projection and lighting requirements. However, a professional will take into consideration many other things, such as the possibility of glare, image stability, angle blur, and more. Many of the visual concerns are particular to the facility, and the often changing lighting conditions within the facility. These factors make it nearly impossible for someone with limited training to get the visual component right for all conditions.
Audio Concerns in the Commercial Environment
Very often, the audio component of A/V can be even more challenging. Some of the challenges come with the type of facility and how the system will be used. There may be multiple rooms, hallways, classrooms, conference rooms, and more to be outfitted. The type of use also influences product choice and placement. A successful design also requires an additional deep understanding of acoustics. Improperly placed speakers in even the best and least challenging acoustic environment will impact sound quality. However, few environments are without challenge.
A professional in A/V will consider things such as:
Room size, shape, and dimension
The distance the sound will need to travel
Construction materials of the space
Sound absorption materials
