Habitech’s newly formed Pro Division ‘Habitech Professional’ has been set up not only to introduce established commercial install operations to Sonance Pro, Yamaha Pro, Ruckus and Wyrestorm etc, but also to help residential installers gain a foothold in commercial AV, which, increasingly, is seeking the distinctive, high-quality customer experiences that CI delivers every day.
In response to a growing number of requests from our traditional dealer base, and with the support of our residential sales team, Habitech has created two complementary Commercial AV training courses dedicated to the installation of discreet high performance AV in shops, clubs, bars, restaurants and hotels.
Scheduled for May 2019, the one-day ‘Introduction to Commercial AV’ course offers Custom Installation Engineers a better understanding and experience of planning and deploying systems.
It examines the difference between residential AV systems and those used in commercial applications; power and impedance requirements; low impedance serial/parallel applications; high impedance (“constant voltage” systems); audio transports; audio sources; auto-mixers; integrating video and audio; AVoIP and the hands-on experience of designing a system.
The day-two ‘Commercial AV Integrator’ course is aimed at engineers who have attended the ‘Introduction to Commercial AV’ course, or those with greater experience of Commercial AV installation. It covers the more advanced aspects of CAV deployment including introduction to CAV configuration software; organising CAV diagrams; configuring an MTX/MRX system using MTX/XMV Editor (including a hands-on practical, and wiring video and audio sources (including balanced inputs).
As part of the training they’ll be introducing Habitech Professional’s expanding product range, including the Sonance Professional Series of distributed audio in-ceiling, pendant and all-weather on-wall speakers; Yamaha Pro’s configurable multi-zone power amplifiers and versatile audio processors, which offer integrators the ability to design centrally managed, highly expandable systems; Wyrestorm’s incomparable ‘Network HD’ video-over-IP platform, Ruckus’ peerless switch technology and wireless prowess, and iPort’s ‘Surface-Mount’ platform of iPad wall-mount solutions. Also contributing value-added power to the ProAV space are Habitech’s audio design services utilising EASE Software and the proven talents of Giovanni Scatola in support of two new Business Development specialists: James Dennis ex Bose Pro and Gareth Cooke, ex Harman and Ministry of Sound.
Habitech will be exhibiting many of these products at stand 48, Essential Install Live 2019, Farnborough Exhibition Centre April 30-May 1.
