The Fundamentals of Good AV Room Design

Architects and designers of AV spaces focus on the aesthetics and optimization of room usage and space. At CAPTUS SYSTEMS, we focus on the principles of AV project optimization, with the technical aspects of our clients’ needs in the forefront. Below are some fundamental best practices that we at CAPTUS SYSTEMS always adhere to, in order to ensure the success of our clients’ AV projects:

The Placement of Screens – Big & Small

A positive AV experience is driven by the visuals of the room – and that includes the placement and size of the screen(s). When a screen is too small or too high on a wall, its effectiveness is lost because screens are obviously the focal point of any AV-enabled room. 

Products from company’s like Planar LED Displays can be set-up in either single-screen or video wall applications, which can then be used in conjunction with Peerless-AV or Chief mounts – and tools such as Chief PAC 525-AV boxes – to create world-class, impressive visual displays. When video screen placement is done correctly, the audience can’t help but be immersed in the experience. This is true for large or small rooms. More specifically – for a large room display, products like RP Visual’s Custom Mounts can be utilized. These types of mounts make it easy to move screens into their proper position, which ultimately makes the viewing experience a more comfortable one for the audience. 


Modern Tools Optimize the AV Experience

Cloud-based video conferencing is a huge component of today’s AV business, so designing rooms that are able to connect easily to Cloud-based applications is essential to the modern meeting space. For optimum functionality, it’s best to use the most updated technology – like Cisco Webex – to deliver video conferencing between users across the globe. Products from Polycom, Starleaf, Cisco, and Zoom also offer great flexibility – and when the right tools from these manufacturers are chosen, it makes for the very best AV results.


Audio is of Vital Importance

Because Cloud-based video conferencing is integral to today’s AV industry, it is imperative to not only get the video part of the equation right – but the audio quality has to be outstanding as well. The audio component cannot be overlooked, so it is of vital importance that the right DSP technology is in place for the best possible sound outcome. Sound technology from BiAmp, QSC, or Clearone are all equally good choices when planning for optimum audio solutions for AV-enabled conference rooms. When the very best audio tools are used, they are sure to deliver crisp and crystal-clear audio in concert with vibrant and vivid visuals – and that makes for a winning combination every time! 

We at CAPTUS SYSTEMS know that all of these points may seem obvious to industry insiders, but sadly, that’s not always the case. We take great pride in making sure that the AV solutions we design for our clients consistently hit on all of these fundamental best practices – which are essential to making every CAPTUS SYSTEMS project a great success.
