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 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.
