Design

Whether you are conscious of it or not, when you walk into a room, the way it looks, sounds, and the way you interact with it have a major impact on your experience.
At EGI Electronics, our goal is to design systems that integrate seamlessly into their environment. To design an AV system that compliments the room takes a combination of experience, artistic skill, and insight into the complex behavior of sound and light in that room.


When we design systems for new construction, we work with the architect and engineers throughout the design process to optimize the space. We evaluate the acoustics, lighting, sightlines, angles of view, ambient noise, electrical requirements, and even room structure in order to make a better functioning room. Our designs and suggestions are then incorporated into the basic room design so the room and the AV systems within it work together as a unified whole.

Our design objectives are:


to provide technically superior, yet user friendly systems.
to design systems according to the requirements unique to each facility
to give complete consideration to the clients requirements/ desires
to pay utmost attention to detail


to design a solid foundation to facilitate easy upgrade to future technology.
Our designs are driven by our experience. Our staff has years of experience on the “user” end of these systems. Whether mixing or rigging for major concert tours, performing as musicians, or serving as a political figure, our staff continually uses the very systems we design and install. We understand their unique requirements of and devote ourselves to realizing quality. The systems that we have installed over the years provide us with additional experience and give us exposure to worldwide requirements.

At EGI Electronics, we use EASE computer modeling and analysis as a powerful tool to aid us in our designs. EASE is the industry standard acoustic analysis software package with a library of all the major professional grade loudspeakers integrated into it.
First we create a computer model of the room. Then we place a "virtual loudspeaker" in our "virtual room". The computer simulates the way the sound will behave in the actual room.


The real benefit of this approach is that it allows us to “audition” several speakers for a particular acoustic space and choose the best one. We can also get an idea of what a particular room will sound like before it is built and take measures to alleviate potential problems.


We use our computer models to look into other things besides sound. We can investigate projection screen angles of view, the effects of lighting on the projection screen, see how a speaker will look in a space before it is hung, and map microphone coverage patterns on a boardroom conference table.
The experience among our engineers is the key to maximizing the benefits of this tool for our clients. Because we know what to look for, we can investigate potential problems and explore possible solutions.
