Tripp Lite AV550SC AV Backup Power Block At InfoComm 2009

907svc_wn_av_av550sc-3-4-view.jpgThe new world of AV digital convergence demands a suite of solutions that include a router & modem for IP Control, Access & Content.

The AV550SC addresses problems that are encountered when designing AV systems that now include a router & modem.

The AV550SC uses a reset / recycle button with 60 second outlet delay for proper sequential re-boot of the router & modem, this allows for the modem to find it’s IP address first before the router re-boots. An all too familiar problem for when the service provider sends an anomaly down the pipe that causes the router & modem to freeze-up!

An Industry first the AV550SC provides a “safety net? by switching equipment to battery backup during a power anomaly, Sag, Outage, Disturbance or Swell.

In case of an extended power outage the Auto Restart feature reduces the need of onsite startup

Additional onboard 12VDC outputs help control the use of bulky transformers for a direct connect solution.

Other features include Surge / Spike protection, EMI/RFI filtration, 550VA-300watts-Battery Backup, 3 transformer spaced outlets-4 total, 2.2 HD coax and Phone protection. Visual LED indicators for proper grounding, on/off, low battery and overload, Front outlet labeling configurable, all in a compact form factor to seamlessly integrate within any system or structured wiring design. more

Date design began: 05-07-07
Date installation was completed: 02-04-08

FEATURE ESSAY:

1. Synopsis describing the project goals, special features, or nuances.

The clients’ passion for both music and movies required that the room serve a dual purpose. While maintaining an environment that was aesthetically congruent with the design of the rest of the home, the clients desired an area for critical music listening. The goal was that those characteristics would carry over to the home theater experience. Video quality played an equal role of importance to the audio. Room isolation and acoustic treatment was also a major focus of the project. The clients’ involvement throughout the decision making process was invaluable and refreshing. This is apparent with their ability to answer their friends’ questions about the system…right down to which cables were used. more

1. Synopsis describing the project goals, special features, or nuances.

The goal of this theater was simple, during a large scale whole-house renovation our client wanted to create a warm, inviting, high performance theater space for his family to spend quality time together. The primary role of this space is for the four daughters that “run the house” to enjoy watching movies with their friends and siblings on a nightly basis. The space had to be multi-functional and have an open concept to a bar/kitchen area, card table, and a 175 gallon salt water aquarium. The client fell in love with our design concept, and after approval of initial renderings and sample materials, we were given the freedom to complete the project on time and on budget with no further input from the homeowner. more

Date design began: 02-11-08
Date installation was completed: 04-20-08

1. Synopsis describing the project goals, special features, or nuances.

Undertaking the design and construction of this home theater was challenging. Our ultimate outcome for this project was to complete it on time and within the given budget. Our main challenge was the limited size of the room. Our client wanted the maximum screen size solely for HD contents in a 20ft x 12ft room in the basement with concrete walls. The control system needed to be user-friendly and the home theater needed to have three rows of seating with bass shakers and several lighting theme options. The importance of acoustical treatment was explained to our client and it was agreed to emphasize on this issue for achieving decent sound quality with wall mounted speakers. more
