An AV solution is nothing without a reliable control system behind it.

Control systems are the brains of the operation, linking disparate AV components together and ensuring they operate within configured parameters. Appearance-wise, there’s nothing special about them – most are a nondescript box with an array of ports and features only interesting to an IT or AV professional. However, they are essential to every AV solution as they allow for easy management of the entire system.

Room control systems can range in functionality, from a simple push-button wall panel that removes the necessity of remote controls, to a full touchscreen that can control not only the AV systems but the lights, blinds or even air conditioning.

Modern meeting rooms, conference rooms, and lecture halls are examples of complex AV environments. It’s not a common household phrase but a vital aspect of modern AV systems.

The use of AV control systems was unheard of until the pandemic. With most people relying on technology to communicate and collaborate, the role of technology, specifically wireless connectivity, became even more important. As the world returns to normal and many corporate environments are back to their usual operation, the reliance on control rooms for managing AV systems will continue to play a vital role.

What is an AV Control System?

An AV Control System is the heart and soul of your communication systems. It consists of the hardware and software elements wherein a controller is responsible for ensuring that each of these elements works in tandem or as individuals.

Every individual component of the AV system has functions to play. The AV controller must take on the difficult task of ensuring that each of these components is working as it should and that they can streamline the various functions of every element for maximum results.

The following are some of the essential equipment facilitated within a room control system:

  • Audio

  • Visual display

  • Hardware

  • Software

  • Lighting

  • Video integration

  • Power

  • Monitor

  • Server

  • Security & Access

The AV control system not only ensures that every element is working efficiently. It also entails that every personnel responsible for the audio visual components collaborate closely together.

Why is a Room Control System Important?

Investing in a reliable AV room control system is integral to the success of your presentations, digital signages, and other uses of technology to communicate and collaborate. It is the core of an integrated audio visual system. Without it, there is no way for you to manage and provide support for your audio visual software and hardware systems.

With an AV control system, you can control all your equipment in one location, or using a central device. It makes it easier to troubleshoot issues or manage technologies within the system.

Choosing a reliable control solution, such as Mediascape, also guarantees that your AV control system is tailored to your needs. Our team will build a room control solution that matches the size of the room and your unique specifications, depending on the equipment used. Whether we’re dealing with simple or complex AV environments, each solution we offer is unique to your needs.

Having a room control system also increases efficiency because it eliminates the hassle of technical onboarding, especially if you have new users in the system. And if you have your own room control system for your software and hardware components, you can ensure that there will be a lesser need for IT support.

Overall, an AV control system functions to streamline all technologies within that system and deliver a more efficient user experience.

Room Control Systems

Audio visual control systems are systems that are used to control and manage audio and visual equipment in a variety of settings, such as conference rooms, schools, and businesses. These systems are important because they allow users to easily control and manipulate audio and visual equipment, and can be customized to meet the specific needs of a particular environment.

One of the key benefits of using audio visual control systems for businesses is that they can help to improve collaboration and productivity among employees. For example, a conference room equipped with an audio visual control system can allow employees to easily share presentations and documents, which can facilitate more effective communication and collaboration.

Another key benefit of audio visual control systems is that they can help to improve the overall customer experience. For example, a business that uses audio visual control systems in their retail space can provide customers with a more engaging and interactive shopping experience. This can help to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty, which can ultimately lead to increased sales and profits for the business.

Interactive Boardroom Screen Solution

Mediascape was approached by the client to advise on how best to utilise the large boardroom and primary meeting space at one of their Glasgow locations. The room at the time had ceiling mounted projectors with projection screens, but the client felt that these no longer offered a premium, professional experience for those attending meetings.
