Inspired Signage

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

We are currently working on a digital signage installation for a school system in Virginia.  They will soon be able create & update signage content from one location and it will appear in multiple locations at each of the schools.  Even better, this signage will also appear on a local TV station so they are also reaching every household who tunes into that channel from the same place…pretty cool!

WHAT is Digital Signage
The AV Company installs the Inspired Signage solution from AMX.  It enables customers to create, schedule and deliver their own vibrant, animated content dynamically to display screens across a network of sites locally, nationally or globally. Through pre-configured hardware and an intuitive software application, your existing staff can easily manage content, graphics and animation targeted to chosen audiences.

 Digital Signage is ideal for-

  • CINEMAS
  • SPORTING VENUES
  • THEATRES
  • BANKING
  • CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS
  • HOTELS
  • EDUCATION
  • RECEPTION AREAS
  • EXHIBITIONS
  • CONFERENCES

Do you think digital signage may be right for you?  Visit the AMX website for more details or call The AV Company for a custom quote.

We were recently contracted by a local school system to provide master clocks and thought we would share a little more about them here on our blog.  Bogen Time Systems provide schools with the correct, up-to-the-second time everywhere in the school.  This means that every area  from classroom to cafeteria, gymnasium to media center, administrative office to the lobby are all in sync.  For more information, check out Bogen’s Time System Brochure or give us a call!

Crestron, Apple and the AV Company- A Magical Combination

Last week we posted a video from Control4 about using the iPad to control their system.  This week, we wanted to share another one from Crestron.  This video shows one of their employees actually using the iPad to control the temperature in the building and even in his wine cellar.  Check it out HERE.

“I Do!” “You what? I can’t hear you…”

Have you ever been to a wedding ceremony where you couldn’t hear the officiant, much less the bride & groom’s vows?

We have a solution for that. Our sound package includes very discreet Bose Professional speakers (they don’t stand out in photos!) with a wireless microphone for the celebrant & readers and a technician on hand to provide you peace of mind as you walk down the aisle. CD and iPod upgrades are also available if you plan to have recorded music as part of your ceremony.


Our discreet BOSE speakers sound great but disappear in photos of your wedding ceremony.
