Design/Build AV System Integration
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
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
Our design objectives are:
to provide technically superior, yet user friendly systems.
to design systems according to the requirements unique to each
to give complete consideration to the clients requirements/
to pay utmost attention to detail
to design a solid foundation to facilitate easy upgrade to future
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
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
