Alberta Arts Development required audio visual systems which would display art submission in various formats for the purpose of deliberation and judging. The key to this project was for Sharp's Audio Visual to design a consistent room functionality and image quality in each of three rooms. The client had expressed a need to have a system that could be expanded beyond the current budgeted design sometime in the future.
Sharp's Audio Visual Solution
This project commenced with Sharp's Audio Visual Account Management and Design teams meeting with Alberta Arts Development Branch personnel to discuss the vision and how it could be achieved within the project budget. There were several obstacles, but the most important feature was quality and consistency of image as works in various formats and from various artists would be displayed in any one or more of the rooms.
Sharp's Audio Visual Solution (Continued)
Sharp's Audio Visual integrated a system for Alberta Arts utilizing 50" and 60" NEC plasmas that were wall mounted on articulating mounting arms. This allowed the plasma to be moved away from the wall at a variety of angles that suited the viewer. The SMART Sympodium interactive pen display was used for its portability and for control and interaction with art submissions. Sharp's Audio Visual established future expandability by incorporating a system switcher that provided for additional outputs and identifying possible future display locations. Training and after sales support has been provided to ensure optimum use of the system by Alberta Arts.
The rooms were well received being used immediately after installation and have been used consistently since.
