CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS OF OUTDOOR AV

CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS OF OUTDOOR AV

SMC feature in this quarters CEDIA Communicates magazine.

The article, by SMC’s Jon Rebbeck, Technical Account Manager, and Kevin Wilton, Director of Operations, looks at the challenges and solutions of outdoor AV.

“With the increasing desire for discreet outdoor audio visual (AV) solutions that perform just as well as indoor installations, it is important to understand that ‘natural’ environments require a different approach.  External settings are more sensitive to environmental conditions and so it is more challenging to create a consistently reliable experience. The sound system, for example, has to deliver through a range of environmental conditions, rather than simply within the controlled volume of a room; distributed speakers, which can easily be concealed in planting, together with a number of subwoofers are likely, therefore, to work best.  The Sonance ‘Landscape Series’ is a good example of this.

Understanding how clients plan to use external spaces is also essential to allow for ‘zoning’ of the system to provide bespoke control as and when required.”
