Middle Atlantic Racks Do Double Duty For Savant Systems

At the heart of Savant Systems’ Experience Center and the Training Center in its company headquarters are a complement of Middle Atlantic racks that transcend their traditional roles as equipment storage areas. In each facility, they are a platform providing invaluable support for customer sales, service and dealer training.

Middle Atlantic MRK Series Rack at Savant Experience Center

Savant’s sophisticated 8,000 square foot Experience Center in New York’s SoHo District features fully automated residential and commercial spaces designed to show prospective clients how the company’s control, automation, energy management and entertainment systems can be artfully and seamlessly integrated into real-world home and commercial market settings.

A team of leading designers was commissioned by Savant to create the Residential Experience’s Center’s fully automated bedroom and bath, music/piano area, media room, kitchen and home theater spaces.

Located in the media room near the home theater, a large 44-space Middle Atlantic MRK Series rack is prominently on view for prospective clients and architects, consultants, builders and media touring the facility.

In addition to showcasing the sheer breadth of equipment required for this type of facility in a handsome and rugged format, it and the six other Middle Atlantic racks in the Center provide a real “inside” view of what goes on behind the scenes of an installation. Each rack emphasizes the organization implicit in the company’s approach to equipment infrastructure, a significant “wow” factor for clients according to Savant officials.

Seven Middle Atlantic racks accomplish the same dual function in Savant’s equally functional and stylish 5,000 square foot Commercial Experience Center that features a Hotel Room Suite, Telepresence/Teleconference room, Sports Bar, Distance Learning Classroom, Corporate Boardroom, and multiple Digital Signage Stations.

Middle Atlantic also plays a critical role at Savant’s main training facility located at the company’s Headquarters in Hyannis, Massachusetts. Equipped with five SRSR Series Slide Out and Rotating racks and four MRK Series racks, it is the site for weekly classes held for Savant’s integrators.

The intensive training introduces Savant’s products and methodologies in a classroom setting outfitted with Savant automation and other equipment, all fitted neatly into Middle Atlantic racks valued for their accessibility, ease of servicing and build quality.

The rest of the building includes 13 demo configuration stations that enable integrators to get hands on experience with Savant’s products and those of other manufacturers in a simulated installation.

According to Savant Director of Business Development, Bob Ross, “Effectively providing integrators with the experience they need in the short time they are here is all about efficiency. Middle Atlantic racks are a key asset in our training regimen that allows integrators quick access to the I/O connections of the products they are working with.

“After years of rigorous daily use in our training facility,” Ross continues, “Middle Atlantic Products have superseded our expectations for build quality and durability—they have held up remarkably well. So well in fact, Savant has continued to commission them around the country for our newest regional training locations.

“When it came time to select an equipment racking solution that would be prominently displayed in Savant’s NYC Experience Center and MA-based Training Headquarters, Middle Atlantic received every nomination. Savant has complete confidence working with such a universally respected organization.”

Acoustics First reveals the PhaseFOAM™ Acoustical System

Acoustics First PhaseFOAM™ for critical listening environments

Acoustics First PhaseFOAM™ for critical listening environments

If you want a kit to tell you how to design the acoustics in your space, DON’T CLICK THIS LINK: www.PhaseFOAM.com

The principals of Acoustics First® have been in the acoustics arena since the seventies when they introduced industrial foam as an acoustic solution for recording studios. Back then, there were neither acoustics companies nor any off the shelf acoustic materials. Everything had to be built by hand. Since then, many choices have appeared – Pre-manufactured acoustical panels, thermoformed diffusers, and many single solution room kits. While kits are convenient and give reasonable results, they can’t possibly be an exact match for your room. Just as no two snowflakes are alike; no two rooms sonically the identical. When it comes to room acoustics, there is no ‘one size fits all’. All rooms are different, so we have created the PhaseFOAM™ acoustical system to allow you, the designer, to tune your room the way you want it to sound.

Acoustics First® introduces the first acoustical system that does not require you to have specific room dimensions. This acoustical system is based on two seemingly simple, but versatile, boxes of acoustical foam. You can use these basic building blocks to create an acoustical environment to suit your needs. PhaseFOAM™ Box A contains absorptive acoustical foam tiles and PhaseFOAM™ Box B contains modular bass traps.

If you have the knowledge, ability and confidence to design your own sound, CLICK THIS LINK: www.PhaseFOAM.com

We trust you to be the best judge of your acoustics!
