Resimercial – the office and home spaces are changing

The small and private meeting areas in an office (huddle rooms) outfitted with audio and video conferencing equipment are making more sense

The commercial clients are making their home office a more appealing place to work. They are adding audio and video equipment to other areas of their homes as well.

More and more companies are planning to have staff remain working from home.

The crossover between residential and commercial integrators continues to grow.  This trend is creating new opportunities.

While the goals are the same for a commercial and a residential installation, every setting has its own set of requirements.

By nature, the demands of residential customers are normally higher than for a commercial customer.  Everyone wants to have “the best” at home!

The integrators must make sure that the products are reliable.

For the huddle room and home office, consider:

  • Discreet high-performance ceiling microphones from CTG Audio.
  • Dependable components to connect your video equipment from Luxi Electronics.
  • The right mounts for the monitors from HANGFORT.
For the residential audio and video experience, consider:
  • The projection screen, projector and speakers that will create the WOW factor from SIM2Waterfall AudioScreen ResearchSevertson Screens or The Screen Works.
  • Amplifier that produces a musical, smooth, warm, loud, clear, subtle and seamless sound from AMPED.
  • Comfortable motorized recliner chairs that will allow to enjoy the movie thoroughly from COMFORTTO.
  • The right lifts for the projector from HANGFORT.
  • Reliable components to connect your video equipment from Luxi Electronics.

Combating Ambient Light?

In terms of projection, one of the most significant challenges is ambient light.  It will impact the resulting contrast and how images appear.  Here are some guidelines to consider:

Choose the Right Screen

White screens offer optimal light diffusion properties, spreading the light uniformly across the entire surface, and in a controlled setting, this provides a vivid, clear image. However, when ambient light is present, it too, will reflect off the screen and wash out the picture.

Darker coatings, like grey or even black, work well for these environments because they provide a more intense contrast level by creating deeper levels of black, which makes the image stand out despite intrusive light.

ALR (ambient light rejecting) surfaces are designed to redirect off-axis light (light other than that emitting from the projector) away from the viewer’s field of vision.

Gain screens, surfaces on which optical coating is applied to increase reflectiveness, can also improve on-axis brightness and redirect a certain amount of off-axis light away from the viewer.

Don’t Overlook the Projector

The loss of brightness resulting from a darker low gain surface is compensated by a higher lumen projector.

While the right projection surface choice is the main factor in controlling the effects of ambient light, higher lumen output projectors are great for brightly lit spaces because the projected light is bright enough to overcome other light sources and compensate for reduced reflectivity from the viewing surface.  However, if the projector is too strong, it will negatively affect contrast and cause an uncomfortable glare for the eyes.

Create the Optimal Viewing Environment

One of the easiest changes to make is painting the room to a darker color to reduce its reflecting capabilities.  Also, consider installing light-blocking window shades.

While it may not be possible to blackout the entire space, it is important to diffuse or eliminate any light that’s coming from behind the projector, especially if an ALR surface has been selected.

Ambient brightness throughout the room can be controlled using directional overhead spotlights. This keeps light away from the projection screen.  Another idea is to incorporate individualized lighting, rather than relying on lighting fixtures that apply broad coverage throughout a room.
