This spring, Integrated Design Solutions (IDS) moved into new headquarters in Troy, Mich., with AV and control systems of its own design. At the heart of these systems is DigitalMedia (DM), the signal distribution and management solution by Crestron. IDS consultants used DM cable, switcher, transmitters, and receivers to reliably transport and manage all data, video, audio, computer, and control signals in the facilityâ€™s two main conference rooms. Crestron processors, amplifiers, and touchpanels completed the integrated control solution.
â€œWe are always trying to maximize functionality in the jobs we do while minimizing problems in the field,â€? says Richard Bracci, director of electrical engineering and technology services. â€œSome of the systems we design are extremely complex. Crestron DigitalMedia is a clean and elegant solution that helps installers cope with that complexity while theyâ€™re dealing with the noise, distractions, and deadline pressures typical on a job site.â€?
