Our local electrical union has recently updated its conference room to a Control4 audio visual and HVAC control system. The new system seamlessly integrates multiple video sources to be selected and distributed to a new Vivetek ceiling mounted projector and 120” drop down projection screen.

The video sources include Apple TV, Microsoft wireless display adapter (WiDi), Sony Blu ray player, and a local in wall connection for devices such as laptops. The system also features a 4-zone 70v audio amplifier to distribute audio to four separate areas independently or together. A microphone is also mixed in for use when public address is needed. Music from Pandora is programmed to come on each morning throughout the building. Two wireless Control4 thermostats with occupancy sensors will seasonally lower/raise the temperature when the union hall is vacated. These new modifications have created an ease of use and savings of energy for union members and individuals renting out the hall. Control4 is an excellent solution for new or retrofit conference room installations.
