How Project Changes Affect a Room’s Design

How Project Changes Affect a Room’s Design

You had the perfect system designed. The projector will elegantly drop from the ceiling on a scissor-lift, positioned exactly to occupy the space of an acoustic ceiling tile. Once installed, it will display engaging content at the optimal scale to meet the viewing requirements of the room’s occupants. The equipment has been ordered and the trades are all scheduled. There’s just one problem; a request has been made to change the light fixture and consequently, its location, placing it directly in front of the projector.  Although it may seem like a simple change, repositioning the projector may require a specialized projector lens be added or a custom scissor-lift be created, along with having the electrical drop relocated and moving any other affected ceiling features. Audio visual systems are an integral part of room design and changes to the room’s ceiling, flooring, walls or furnishings may cause a ripple effect resulting in costly change orders.

How to Determine the Best Display Solution for Your Meeting Space, Part One

Who doesn’t want to make their meetings as effective and productive as possible? Aside from the physical attributes of the space, the key to effective communication and collaboration is the participants’ ability to actively engage with the content being shared. Content needs to be clearly visible from every angle with displayed text legible from every seat in the room so determining the proper display size, type and placement is essential in creating an engaging, collaborative environment.
