Commercial Integrator: 11 Best Installs Announced in 2013 Integration Awards

Our second annual look at some of the best installs from last year is a chance to marvel at — and learn from — the work of fellow integrators as selected by the editors and writers of Commercial Integrator and TechDecisions.

Commercial Integrator is all about troubleshooting. A client has a problem or a need, and it’s the integrator’s job to come up with a plan to fill that need. And that’s only half the battle.

Once onsite, any number of problems can arise that require quick thinking and ingenuity to bridge the gap between the best-laid plans and the real world problems that can lead those plans astray. Time in and time out, installers find a way to make it to not only make it work, but to make it exceed customer expectations.

Commercial Integrator: Cake Boss, Elan In Control Of Growing Retail Empire

Baking’s biggest celebrity opens second Carlo’s Bakery in Ridgewood, N.J., the first of several new retail locations to open throughout 2013 and 2014.

by D. Craig MacCormack

When you’re dealing with the self-proclaimed Cake Boss, you know you should take careful notes and not stray from the plan, even if the plan changes on the fly sometimes.

It’s a lesson Abiose and Chima Gale first learned when outfitting celebrity baker Buddy Valastro’s house with an Elan g! control system more than two years ago, and one that was driven home even harder when they decked Valastro’s new cake factory in Jersey City, N.J. with an amped-up Elan control system, iPod docks, and much more in 2011.

Commercial Integrator: What Restaurant Clients Crave

Overcoming acoustic, content, automation and emergency notification challenges is critical to winning over restaurant clients.

by Robert Archer

The restaurant business is extremely competitive and challenging. Failure rates are high. But integrators can give their restaurant and bar clients a competitive edge through ambiance.

Many restaurants are paying more attention to the audio content they distribute in their dining rooms. Custom audio playlists were once the domain of high-end restaurants but they’re trickling down to casual dining businesses, according to the Associated Press.

360 Media Innovations Cooks Up a Bakery for the Cake Boss

JERSEY CITY, NJ—When you’re America’s favorite baker, you can’t be seen working in just any run-of-the-mill production center. That’s why celebrity baker Buddy Valastro reached out to the team at 360 Media Innovations, who worked with the Cake Boss star to create a customdesigned 35,000-square-foot bakery production center in Jersey City, NJ.

According to Chima Gale, president of 360 Media Innovations, the ELAN g! control system was the best choice for Carlo’s Bakery Lackawanna. “Because the ELAN g! graphical user interface is so easy to use, it’s perfect for this type of commercial installation, where a lot of people will be using the touch screens to adjust system settings. It will be simple to integrate additional subsystems in the future, and the already installed paging and safety features add so much value to the audio system that it would have been a waste to use any other product,” he said.

Elan: Busy New Jersey Integrator Updates Restaurant From Old Control System To Elan G! In A Single Day!

360 Media Innovations’ Abiose Gale attests to the fact that, with ELAN g!, “We write far more orders and far less code, and that has made all the difference to the growth of our business.”

PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA - August 1, 2012—After the owners of the New Jersey-based restaurant group Delicious Heights learned how much easier it was to manage their restaurant’s audio and video with the ELAN® g! Entertainment and Control System in one restaurant, they decided to upgrade their Berkeley Heights, N.J. flagship location from their original AMX system to ELAN g!  What’s more, and because everyday counts in the restaurant business, it was of the utmost importance that the g! system be online right away without disrupting a single hour of business operations.

Commercial Integrator: Cake Boss Already Hungry For More A/V Upgrades

Reality show TV star, 360 Media Innovations plotting more ways to upgrade new 35,000-square-foot bakery production facility.

by D. Craig MacCormack

The area that seems to have the most potential is the two classrooms where Valastro, his decorators and other guest bakers will offer paid baking classes to the public. There’s talk of taking the classes to the Web too, says Gale, charging attendees a small fee to watch the live feed or recordings. “I see it as a cash cow,” Gale says.

There will also be a couple of digital signage players installed in the new Carlo’s, which will show clips of Valastro’s TV and public speaking appearances and give tour attendees more information about the history and future of the operation. The new space will also allow Carlo’s to start shipping its goodies across the country, or around the world.
