The Art of Acoustic Zoning in Commercial Audio Video Systems


How to Keep Diners Happy and Staff Efficient at Your Restaurant

Imagine walking into a restaurant where the atmosphere is just as appetizing as the menu. Soft jazz music complements the low chatter of satisfied customers, and the aroma of freshly cooked meals fills the air. Now, imagine this idyllic setting disrupted by the loud clanging of pots and pans from the kitchen or blaring music from the bar area. The ambiance suddenly turns into a cacophony of discordant sounds. This is where the art of acoustic zoning comes into play for your New Orleans restaurant.

Acoustic zoning is the strategic use of commercial audio video to create distinct auditory environments within different restaurant areas. It's about more than setting the right playlist for your dining room. It's about making sure announcements or specials can be heard clearly without overpowering the background music. And most importantly, it's about enhancing the overall dining experience for your customers and facilitating efficient communication among staff.

Deliver Dynamic Visuals with Flat-Panel Displays

Flat-panel displays are capable of more than showing a baseball game or the latest episode of Westworld. They can be used to create active tableaus that set the atmosphere for patrons, putting moving artwork on the walls that adds a new element of sensory stimulation. This distributed video is customizable to fit the aesthetic of your specific restaurant, which is especially handy for those that seasonally change their menu and décor.

Turn Wait time Into Play Time with Interactive Touch Screens

Nobody likes waiting for a table, but it’s easier to be patient when there’s something to keep you occupied. Touch monitors can be programmed with games to keep children and adults entertained, reinforcing a sense of community before people gather around the table. Whet the guests’ appetites with interactive menus that show how dishes are prepared and presented. Want to make sure appetizers and drinks are ready immediately after being seated?

Increase Efficiency with Intuitive Control Systems

The staff of your restaurant can quickly alter volume or change channels with a centralized control system on a smartphone or tablet. Control4 is an industry leader when it comes to integrated AV, providing a wide variety of options for seamless handling of electronic networks. Does a table want to hear a specific song? Jump onto Tidal and put the track on the restaurant playlist in seconds. Is the audio too loud in one area? Hone in on the speakers in that room and adjust the volume for a more pleasurable visit.

Transport Patrons with Global Radio Services

Music creates a sonic landscape that influences the customer's buying decisions, giving ethnic restaurants extra incentive to match their audio to their cuisine's country of origin. A service like TuneIn allows users to explore radio stations from around the world, which eliminates the process of looking for specific artists or songs to provide restaurants with a continuous stream of music from a particular region. Check out the video below to see how easy it is to navigate TuneIn from a Control4 system, and contact Acadian Home Theater & Automation to learn more about how we can optimize your restaurant with commercial audio-visual solutions.

Size Matters

Just how big is your conference room space? Size is a major deciding factor in choosing between a flat-panel display and a projector, and if you have a space that seats over 12 people, you’ll want to go with the latter. Sure, you could invest in the world’s largest flat-panel display—Samsung’s 110-inch Ultra HDTV—but the high cost and installation challenges make it far less attractive than an HD projector.

Instead of taking up an entire wall with a display, you have an easy-to-install projector on the ceiling that projects onto a pull-down screen, which can be customized to the dimensions of your space. This is also helpful for conference rooms that might have unconventional dimensions, providing a flexible solution that saves wall space.
