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? An ordering feature will let the bar and kitchen know ahead of time.

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.

Great A/V Systems Are Home Seller's Edge

If you tour a lot of homes for sale, it soon becomes clear what amenities one expects to find in great homes, though perhaps not considered to be in the "high-end" range.

You might expect, for example, triple-crown moulding, granite counter-tops, stainless appliances and extra-large walk-in closets.  In terms of electronics, you might look for flatscreen TVs, built-in speakers (both indoor and out) or even a security system with closed circuit cameras.

But consider what your reaction to the home is when you find a dedicated media room or even a home theater?  Or perhaps you learn the home features fully-distributed audio and video to all the rooms in the house.  How does that affect the home's desirability factor?  Then again, what if you learned the home is programmed to operate from a tablet or remotely from your smart phone?--adjust the temperature, check the security cameras, or turn lights on or off?  Wouldn't any of these amenities create the sort of "wow" factor that tells you THIS home seller has one great home!?

Distinctive home electronic systems not only put the "style" in your lifestyle but could be the very thing that helps your own home outclass the others on the market when its time to sell.

Jerry Del Colliano write in hometheaterreview.com:
In high-end homes, expectations of media rooms, highly programmed home automation and AV trickery are expected, but what about in a more modest house? Laura Gallagher is a Remax real estate agent in Collegeville, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Philadelphia), who says, "Often, we see media rooms as part of finished basements in the homes in our market which average about $375,000 a property. While I don't think an appraiser would put a specific premium on the value of a home because of a distributed audio system or media room, it sure does help differentiate a home from the competition. In developments where one house is very similar to the next and there are many houses for sale at any given time, the one with the flat-screen TVs, media room or even the sub-zero fridge will sell first."
No one can predict the value someone else will place on any amenity in your home.  But the high-end nature of superb A/V systems can go a long way to setting your home apart from ALL the rest on the market.
