Avoid Common Conference Room Problems

Have you ever been in that meeting where the presenter spent the first ten minutes figuring out how to get the PowerPoint presentation on the conference room screen?

Thinking About a Home Theater Projector?

Here’s a Quick Guide to the Basics

Thinking About a Home Theater Projector?

For a long time, for a genuinely big-screen experience in the home, a projector was the only game in town. Before the era of flat-panel TVs, large screen TVs that stretched to 65 inches were large, bulky boxes that weighed over 200 pounds. Of course, 65 inches might be fine for a home theater in a smaller room, but realistically that might seem a little small with today’s technology. Indeed, current flat-panel TV technology stretches screens out over 80 inches, which makes a compelling case for a cinematic experience in some rooms. Flat-panel displays are easier to mount, are very bright, and aren’t as demanding about controlling light in a room.

However, for the real cinematic experience, nothing matches a projector. Projectors can work with screens from 100 to 120 inches in size, which can deliver the immersive movie experience in a large room. Here in Texas, bigger is always better, right? But there are some things you need to consider when going with a projector for your home theater installation in Frisco.

Read on to find out what you need to know to get the most out of your home theater.

What is Digital Wayfinding?

The Modern Way to Navigate Anywhere

What is Digital Wayfinding?

Have you ever driven into the University of Texas at Dallas, parked, and had no idea how to get to a building? Have you ever gotten frustrated looking for the restaurant at Richardson’s City Line where you were supposed to meet your friend for lunch 10 minutes ago?

While we have our smartphones with mapping apps to help us navigate to places, navigating at large places – like college campuses, retail malls and shopping centers, and airports, stadiums and entertainment venues – is often not that easy. But there is technology today that can change all that. Rather than just using static signage, today’s commercial audio video systems let venues simplify navigation – making it interactive, engaging, and offering commercial possibilities too.

This new technology is called Digital Wayfinding. It’s really applications that put together a variety of available tech to make navigation easier – touchscreen displays, video, audio, and Internet-connected software – to augment or supplant simple paper maps and confusing signage.

Let’s explore some of the benefits of applying digital wayfinding applications to commercial audio-video systems here in Richardson.
