Husqvarna Construction Products in Olathe, KS was in need of a new "War Room", and called AVIES.
We worked directly with the project managers at Husqvarna's facility to help design a state the art conference center as well as updating three other conference rooms in the facility with large screens and high-lumen projectors.
The new conference room, built from scratch in the middle of the main floor in the building, features 6 80" Sharp Aquos LED/LCD HDTVs, dimmable smart LED overhead lighting, HDMI matrix switching, and Universal Remote Control (URC) command and control equipment.
The precision of this installation resided with creating a 1 x 6 video wall with the large displays that included extending past two corners of the room. Anyone who's ever had to line up displays on a flat wall knows the difficulty in installing heavy monitors with tolerances in the hundredths of inches--imagine carrying that kind of precision over from flat mounts to large displays on fully articulating arms.
To achieve the elegant look, AVIES mocked up the mounting and spent the long hours to calculate precise display placement.
Once the hard part was done, AVIES also installed a motorized drop down projector screen and high-brightness projector in the same conference room.
To simplify control and setup proper scenarios (such as, when the projector is on and the screen is down, turn off the center monitors or clone one computer input over the three left screens but leave the right three set one-to-one), AVIES installed a full Total Control solution from URC. Consisting of one of URC's Total Control base stations and a fully programmable remote with color LCD built in, two in-wall control pads and IR flooding blasters in the room, the control system brings everything to life with the simple touch of a button.
