Medium to large scale projects normally require a control touch panel in order to easily take control of the entire audiovisual system. Touch panels come in many forms such as wired tabletop or wall-mounted versions from our many control system manufacturers, or a generic iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or phone. We pride ourselves in offering easy to use graphical interfaces, whether the user be tech savvy or not. The ultimate goal is for the user to operate their audiovisual system with confidence.
Clients are always asking for the easiest way possible to operate their audiovisual systems. Some even say, “I don’t want to have to touch any buttons, I just want it to be ready for me when I enter the room.” Not long ago, this would have been an unattainable request, but with modern occupancy sensors, it can be accomplished quite easily. An occupancy sensor is used to monitor motion activity within a room. They can be configured to be ultra-sensitive, detecting the slightest motion of a hand, or less-sensitive, requiring someone to walk within a certain space. How can this be used with an audiovisual system? Imagine walking into your conference room and without saying a word or pressing a button, your display turns on, it switches to the primary source, the audio system is adjusted to a default level, and the overhead lights turn on. It won’t take long for you to forget that there is a highly-intelligent control system working behind the scenes to make your life easier.
