Solutions Spotlight – Eye-catching Marketing Idea for Integrators

Backyard theater created by Dell Smart Home Solutions.
Backyard theater created by Dell Smart Home Solutions.

Dell Smart Home Solutions (DSHS) recently launched a few lifestyle-oriented videos to augment their company outreach. Professionally executed and enticing, the videos do a great job of representing the company's abilities as well as their attitudes. Christine Dell, manager of Dell Smart Home Solutions, commented, "We didn't want our company videos to be overly corporate. We wanted these videos to speak for what we love to do, to tell the story of what this level of electronics can do for a client's actual day-to-day life." DSHS uses these in their outbound marketing, as well as a friendly in-house company introduction when a prospect first visits the showroom.

Watch a few of the videos here:

Well done, Dell Smart Home Solutions, and keep up the good work. If your company has recently introduced a distinct or interesting marketing idea, we'd love to hear about it. Let us know at

Audio Command

Audio Command relies on Digital Projection Audio Command, a custom systems integrator with over 35 years of experience across the U.S., completed a casual penthouse media room that features a dazzling video experience. Combining an exceptionally bright Digital Projection TITAN 3-chip projector with a 144" Stewart Filmscreen StudioTec 130 screen, the client's dreams of a casual yet high-performance viewing environment were realized.

Typically working outside the U.S., the client wanted as oasis for the times when he returns to New York City. Only the best would do, as this NYC penthouse is used almost exclusively as a place to unwind and recuperate from a busy work and travel schedule.

Audio Command relies on Digital Projection As space is a premium in city dwellings, the powerful TITAN projector was chosen to deliver all content in an open media space regularly contending with ambient light.

An avid sports enthusiast, the client enlists a Crestron DVPHD video processor to, at times, watch four sporting events at once on the large screen. When not watching sporting events, a Kaleidescape server is used for movies and recorded entertainment.

Audio Command relies on Digital Projection John Clancy, executive vice president at Audio Command Systems, Inc., commented that the TITAN was chosen in this media space "because of the image quality and brightness. We've had great success with the Digital Projection line, and knew the client would be happy."

The two-story media room within the penthouse was designed with flexibility in mind. Conceptually, the client wanted a casual media area that could entertain a crowd during live sporting events. Although designed with socializing in mind, the 40' x 20' media space is quite advanced. Russ Berger of Russ Berger Design Group ensured the room was acoustically impeccable, while the projector is almost invisible, having been concealed within a soffit in a custom-created air conditioned cavity. Automated Lutron shades supply privacy when desired, and Genelec speakers deliver the aural experience.

Audio Command relies on Digital Projection

Audio Command relies on Digital Projection Many thanks to Audio Command for insisting on DP's premier home entertainment displays, and congratulations on creating such an effective media environment.
