Why are audiovisual systems important?
Videoconferencing for your conference rooms or boardrooms, fully stocked training rooms with projectors, screens, and training software, emergency operations centers, and a speaker system throughout your restaurant or lobby are just a few of the ways you can leverage AV systems to your needs. They can help you create an immersive, thoughtful, crystal clear experience for visitors and employees alike.
What markets use audiovisual systems the most?
In short, almost every company will use AV to teach, present, and interface with clients, employees, students, and other invested parties. However, entertainment- or education- oriented markets probably use AV technology the most. Enthralling viewers easily takes the cake, and the rise of video is creating even more opportunities. Education is also a common discovery and testing ground for new technology and its applications. But remember, that tech can be used anywhere with the right creativity!
What kind of technology can you offer theaters or performing arts centers?
Another awesome technology for theaters is projection mapping, which can create a 3-D set using software and imagery to streamline production or add ambiance to a show by providing weather features or other timed visuals.
These are just a few of the ways your theater can wow guests and improve your staff’s production development. Read more about our live sound systems.
What are some of the most sought-after AV technologies for businesses today?
Corporations are primarily interested in AV’s ability to make meetings quicker, easier, and more enjoyable for the attendants. We’ve all been through an agonizing meeting. High-res videoconferencing, perfect audio pickup, and sleek design can turn those meetings into enjoyable collaborative moments instead of hours-long information slogs.
Businesses are exploring many other avenues of increasing engagement among employees and customers, too. Digital signage, particularly interactive displays, can be found in malls, restaurants, and more. The move to interactivity pays dividends by offering advertisement space and giving people an opportunity to physically engage on your property, creating a relationship between you and the viewer.

Why do I need video surveillance?
Video surveillance is one of the greatest crime deterrents imaginable. You project to visitors an interest in their safety, and to would-be criminals, that you take crime seriously. By investing in the systems you need to record, process, and analyze video footage, you strongly improve your security and can mitigate crime.
Integrating your surveillance with video analytics or access control can provide you even greater influence over your property by controlling the flow of visitors, ensuring better criminal identification, and giving you unparalleled control.
What are the benefits of wireless locks?
Wireless locks by companies like Allegion create a network between doors and a management system that can let you send commands to specific doors at the touch of a button. Combined with security cameras, you can use wireless locks to quickly process requests for access by pulling up the camera watching a specific door immediately.
What are the differences between popular security cameras?
There are a variety of security camera types that fulfill several different functions:
- Fixed dome cameras offer a lens focusing on a specific area;
- PTZ, or pan, tilt, zoom cameras, offer a safer enclosure and increased ability to move, magnify, and analyze surveillance footage;
- Panoramic cameras provide a warped or dewarped 360° view with optical zoom; and
- Multi-Sensor 360° cameras actually provide multiple cameras to give true 360° view.
What are the components of an access control system?
Access control systems are highly customizable depending on your needs, but each system has, at minimum, a method of identification and an authentication system. You could opt for mobile access, card or fob access, biometric access, or another method of confirming identity depending on your security needs and the best option for your facility.
What kind of analytics are available in security cameras or a video management system?
The most popular analytics for video surveillance systems include license plate recognition, color and shape associators, people counting, item recognition, and much more. Depending on your analytics needs, you may opt for one, none, or all of the analytics options available to you. Take a look at the video analytics options we offer and decide what’s right for you.
What are the regulatory requirements for smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and sprinklers in Florida?
A fairly new requirement for Florida fire safety is installing smoke detectors connected directly to the building’s electrical system or replacing existing ones with 10-year smoke alarms that feature a nonremovable, nonreplaceable battery.
This is just one of the wrinkles of setting up a comprehensive, integrated fire system in your building. A sales representative can discuss the specifics of your area and project a little more. Contact us today.
