The 29-story Parker high-rise overlooking the Kennedy Expy in Fulton Market is a sight to behold. Completed in 2016, Atlantic Residential used another company for its AV installations, and the previous company made no plans and left equipment behind that was not installed.
Atlantic Residential determined that their entire AV system was not operating and called Encompass Connect to investigate. Encompass found an inefficient system, incorrectly installed equipment, and an unfriendly control system for controlling the AV.
While getting their current AV system working as intended was the main goal, Encompass convinced Atlantic Residential that large screens are becoming more popular. Both agreed that adding a four-panel video wall would make their high-end community space and pool that much more attractive.
Planning and preparedness are the most important priorities when updating AV systems in an occupied multi-tenant space. Not only did Encompass Connect need to plan a solution that was both effective and economical, but they had to implement the solution without disturbing the day-to-day lives of the tenants.
Encompass Connect set multiple meetings with the client to ensure that a sound plan was in place. Encompass successfully installed a four-panel video wall, installed the network video distribution system, replaced the established control system with a user-friendly control system, and replaced the TVs and sound systems in the community space and pool area.
Encompass Connect’s 20+ years of experience stand out when it comes to cleaning up a previous AV company’s mistakes. Decommissioning old AV systems and retrofitting existing buildings can get expensive quickly, meaning it is crucial to have a partner who knows how to work these systems efficiently and stay within your budget.
Video technology becomes outdated and unfashionable very quickly. We always recommend upgrading your video technology every 7-8 years, including the control systems. With a brand new video wall with a network video distribution system and sound systems encompassing the community space and pool area, residents of The Parker can now enjoy the luxury experience that comes with the Atlantic Residential brand.
Multi-unit residential buildings are competing for business with one another by installing and refreshing high-quality AV technology in their community spaces. Tenants have shown a great interest in Bluetooth capabilities, Large Format Screens, Surround Sound, and Easy-to-Use control systems. Like The Parker, Encompass Connect equips many residential community spaces with these technologies. Encompass continues to be at the forefront of the AV industry and helps its customers stay on top of the latest trends to attract more customers for themselves.
