Audio visual (AV) integration whether in your home or in your office creates an environment that facilitates collaboration and interactivity among those that interact with the space. The seamless combination of different AV technologies and tools provides a space customized for effective brainstorming and sharing ideas; thereby enhancing creativity and decision making. As a result, many organizations are opting to install AV rooms to help drive innovation. If you decide to embark on this journey to an automated lifestyle,
Step 1: Project Planning
This crucial first step involves deciphering your project plans, requirements and expectations. By understanding your audio visual requirements you can determine the general scope of work, budgets and timelines necessary to achieve the desired results. Depending on the scope of your project, you may need to bring in some outside help.
AV Companies like Woodstock Electronics consult with you to solidify plans for the integration. This step also establishes the foundation for an amicable relationship between you, the consultants & contractors.
Step 2: Design & Engineering
Consulting AV companies like Woodstock Electronics pride themselves in providing you with a comprehensive outline of your project. This phase includes developing a proposal based on your requirements and involves drawing the designs, shaping up the details, specifying the technology components and preparing the relevant documentation.
Step 3: Installation & Commissioning
At this point, your project becomes a reality. Although DYI is a definite option, depending on the scale a professional installation staff may need to come onsite to install all structured cabling and equipment; working closely with the rest of the overall project team to ensure a seamless integration of our equipment with the building fabric.
Custom programming is loaded onto equipment and a complete system functionality test is conducted before the system is commissioned.
Step 4: Training & Sign-off
With the installation process completed, now you are set. If the project, was done by a consulting AV company, the next step is training the you and other users of the space to understand how the system works properly and system sign-off.
Step 5: Post-installation Service & Support
High-tech AV systems require regular check-ups and servicing to ensure efficient operation and peak performance. Ensure that the company offers different levels of System Support Agreements and Service on Demand to keep your equipment functioning optimally and extend its lifespan.
