Today the term “Audio Visual” is used to encompass a huge range of media and ways to access it!
The emphasis in modern homes and businesses is to link or integrate the elements of an Audio Visual system such as media room / home theatre / surround sound / distributed TV / multi zone audio / video conferencing / on-line content etc with the home automation, smart home system or Board Room control. In this way any HD display or project screen can become a portal into your control system.
In the board room a single remote can manage the blinds, climate control, lighting, the projector & screen, the progress of a presentation, audio volume, video conferencing, and so on. Control can be via a hand held remote, a switch panel or touch screen, or even via an iPad® or iPhone®/iPod® touch or other smart device.
In the smart home, similarly, while viewing a movie, you have the ability to dim the lighting and close the blinds, to view the security camera footage, to obtain the latest sport scores or a weather update, and much...much more – all without interrupting your family’s viewing experience.
