The 12,000 square-foot Ivystone and HomeStyle showroom is located on the busiest floor of AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia.
They recently hired local A/V firm Atlanta Sound & Lighting to install a new sound system with internet based remote control for computers and Smartphones.
The new system centers on a Symetrix Jupiter 8 “zero learning curve” processor with Symetrix ARC-WEB remote.
The fully-programmable ARC-WEB provides secure network control of input source and zone volume from any computer or smartphone, anywhere in the facility or anywhere in the world.
“The space has had a number of sound systems over the years, with people coming in to band-aid this or that,” said Bill Abner, project manager with Atlanta Sound & Lighting. “The ceiling was just a mélange of different speakers in poorly articulated zones with almost no user control.”
“Because they often have different vendors in different areas that require different volumes, they needed a new, reliable system that would allow them to easily control the volume in any situation.”
Abner and his associates showed the owners Symetrix’ new ARC-WEB remote, and that sealed the deal. The ARC-WEB implements a virtual ARC wall panel remote that can be accessed from any networked device, including iPhones and other smartphones, with appropriate security clearance.
Just as with the hardware ARC panels that have become an integral part of so many flexible installations, Abner would be able to program the ARC-WEB so that its presentation and functions were specific to the needs of Ivystone and HomeStyle.
