    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   We started off this article series (here) talking about when AVL (audio-video-lighting) people should be brought into a project, as well as how to develop some system objectives and how to get started on a ballpark budget. Now let’s get to the fun stuff: choosing key technologies and system design. This is the point in the process that we start to pick out the big picture items of the project.

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   One of the many challenges facing commercial audiovisual professionals today is the lack of space for installed equipment. The move to open space in the corporate world has burdened many design engineers with the challenge of where to put the gear. In many cases, the traditional equipment rack is being removed from the room or eliminated altogether. Today’s office spaces are taking on the characteristics of living rooms, home-style kitchens and dens.… View this story

    Most of us think we have it together, at least most of the time. We try to have a balance on all things “life” – work, family, time management, enjoying the “little” moments, and so on. It’s all the stuff that you can read about in some magazine found in the check-out line at the grocery store—“How To Get Your Life Together,” or something like that. Then again, if we take a closer look (some of us don’t even have… View this story

    Calculating Illuminance Most manufacturers of automated lighting provide photometric data showing the throw distance, the beam, and field width as well as the illuminance in lux and foot-candles (fc). (1) By referencing the chart below (Figure 1),  the designer can quickly gauge whether or not an instrument will provide the target illuminance and field width at a given throw distance. A chart like this will get you in the ballpark, allowing you to select lighting instruments and rough in the… View this story

    We eat light, drink it in through our skins. With a little more exposure to light, you feel part of things physically. I like feeling the power of light and space physically because then you can order it materially. Seeing is a very sensuous act; there’s a sweet deliciousness to feeling yourself see something. — James Turrell, artist known for his use of light in art Designing with automated lighting is really not much different than designing with conventional fixtures.… View this story

    Musician/producer Alex Campos founded Noisematch Studios in Miami’s hip Wynwood Arts District in 2010. “I did a lot of research on where to locate the studio and also dug into the gear – my business started with just a small project and it grew from there,” Campos notes. And business has been booming – to the point where Campos has all the work he needs despite never having yet officially opened the studio to the public. Word-of-mouth has brought him… View this story
