Count on your Metro NY integration expert for AV distribution services
Welcome to our new Blog!
We hope you consider this 360 Media Innovations page to be a valuable resource for information on the latest technology innovations, and visit us often. To start us off, we wanted to highlight a recent project 360 completed for a restaurant chain, Tilted Kilt, and why Just Add Power HD over IP™ became our go-to solution for their HDMI distribution.
Over the years, we’ve learned that there are a handful of features that bar and restaurant clients generally request – flexibility, scalability, consistency and ease of use. Like most modern pubs, Tilted Kilt keeps the entertainment quotient high with 34 televisions, 31 speakers (including 6 outdoors) and 2 subwoofers, in addition to lighting controls, security & surveillance systems and more. For this sort of (practically) limitless distribution requirement, we recommended HD/IP from Just Add Power. Why? Their Managed Ethernet switch setup to start.
It’s important to understand that the HDMI over IP devices themselves are not capable of performing any switching functions. The units function on the LAN as simple plug-n-play devices. It’s the configuration adjustments of the Managed Ethernet switch that performs the switching operation between sources.
For example, you could have a Satellite TV box on one virtual local area network (VLAN), a Blu-ray player on another, an HD Games Console on still another, and so on. It’s possible to control which VLAN a Display Receiver views by adjusting the port configuration of the Managed Ethernet Switch. Sounds complicated, but it’s made easy with IP drivers available for practically any automation system on the market, and when you partner with 360 Media Innovations.
Most of the bar and restaurant clients we work with want to be able to play multiple audio sources simultaneously in different parts of the establishment. They want quick control of lighting and HVAC, seamless control of multiple displays and one-button system start-up. These automations can also be applied as part of our home lighting and shading control services in New York and Northern New Jersey. For these solutions, whether in both a commercial setting or for an expansive property, we bring solutions from a variety of controllers, from Elan Home Systems, Lutron Lighting, Aprilaire thermostats, and HD/IP, to name a few.
Whether you have a restaurant you’re looking to upgrade, or just want to explore whole home automation options, do not hesitate to call 360 Media Innovations. We have the experience to service all your Audio Video System needs.
