TV Wall Mounting
Audio Video Installation Houston TX
It seems that everyone wants to have a home theater in their house these days. With the rapid availability and affordability of everything from 80” televisions to multi-channel receivers, everyone can have one! What’s even better – the equipment is much more affordable than it was years ago. So, you can pick up a 65” TV for under $1000 and a 5 channel speaker system for the same but then comes the hard part…how do you install it? These systems typically have many wires, connectors and connections, which is difficult enough but then we also want everything to be hidden! Let’s discuss our options.
Audio/Video Installation Challenges
No matter how you look at it, installing audio and video equipment is challenging and difficult for someone that doesn’t do it every day.
Here are some common challenges:
● Electricity – You’re dealing with electricity and without a good working knowledge, it can be inherently dangerous.
● Value – Many of the devices you will be dealing with are pretty expensive. So instead of learning on the TXy and hoping everything works and you don’t drop or damage something, it’s usually best to call a professional.
● Brand Crosstalk – Sometimes if you buy different brands for the different devices, there could problems than if they were the same brand. The professionals know how to deal with this and have probably seen the problem before and have a solution.
● Organization – Most everyone who wants a home theater wants everything to be seamless and for nobody to see all of the wires and connectors that go into creating that beautiful sound and video experience. Developing this level of cleanliness and organization on the first or fifth time is difficult.
● Interaction of Audio Visual and Information Technology – This has become inevitable as so many devices are able to interact, but with this proposed convenience are a lot of challenges. Much of the AV world is being converged with IT (and not vice versa) meaning that there are bandwidth issues because AV is typically a bigger load on bandwidth than IT processes. Streaming video from NetTXix will take up much more than running SAP on your laptop.
● System Outages – Most businesses are run through a variety of computer systems and applications across a global network. If there is a glitch or a network overhaul, each minute the system is done can be affecting your bottom line. It is important to ensure there are ways to work around this or minimize the downtime.
