Nothing wrecks the mood like an old boom box or speakers blaring out of a window. Keep your outdoor landscaping looking beautiful and technology free with high performance audio speakers that blend right in. All-weather speakers are designed specifically for the acoustic conditions of the outside world, such as the lack of walls, ceiling, and floors to reflect sound, and will perform a whole lot better.
Terra Loudspeakers has the perfect companion for any outdoor party: LuminSound™ LS.32. The LuminSound concept is simple; offer excellent all weather outdoor sound reproduction, and flexible, attractive, efficient lighting all within a single, practical unit.

Crestron announced today the upcoming opening of its state-of-the-art Experience Center located at its world headquarters in Rockleigh, NJ. The new multi-million dollar interactive environment celebrates the company’s 40 years of innovation and leadership. The fully immersive experience will provide integrators, architects and designers with a space to introduce clients to Crestron, meet with Crestron executives, collaborate with system designers and to demonstrate the latest state-of-the-art technology in elegantly appointed, functioning application environments. The 8,000 square foot suite features an atrium-style reception area, cutting edge multimedia presentation room, digital boardroom, Theo Kalomirakis Home Theater and an expansive interactive design lab.
The center is a compelling destination location and one of the highlights of a complete tour of the Crestron campus, a small city dedicated to innovation, engineering and client support. In addition to the Experience Center, Crestron will open its doors to business partners and guests for an inside look at the sophisticated, and until now, rarely seen 100,000 square-foot Research Center, where more than 350 engineers are developing the products and technologies of tomorrow; the 150,000 square foot manufacturing plant; the 50,000 square foot pre-production facility, and the 50,000 square foot worldwide distribution center. The appointment-only tours provide a compelling, in-depth look into the world of Crestron, to fully understand and appreciate the level of commitment, investment and expertise of Crestron, and why it’s the global leader in digital HD technology and control solutions.
“Some people know us, and think of us as a big company and industry leader. Others may not have heard of us at all,” explains Crestron Executive Vice President, Randy Klein. “But to come here and see it all firsthand is always an eye-opening experience. It’s hard to imagine what we have and what we’re doing. You really have to come and see for yourself.”
The expansive new Experience Center was designed by world-renowned interior designer Andres Escobar. Fashionably appointed with the finest fixtures and furnishings, the center elegantly blends chic design with cutting-edge technology. Guests walk through the terrazzo entrance way and are transported from a typical corporate reception area into a bright, open grand atrium with rounded walls and a high ceiling that features geometric skylights.
“When you walk through the doors you immediately know this is not a typical showroom or demo area,” observes Klein. “We didn’t rent or move into a generic commercial space. We started with a clean slate and challenged Andres to design a modern space and unique atmosphere that would facilitate creativity and collaboration, and where we could also host events and showcase technology.”
The reception area features a 7.1 in-ceiling surround sound system, Digital Projection HD projector and Stewart Filmscreen StarGlas screen, Hubbell Lighting fixtures, Philips Color Kinetics three-color LED chase lights, Renaissance Lighting LED downlights, a custom made wave-shaped stainless steel counter with a quartz countertop and leather high-back stools. LED lights are installed throughout the center, and are dimmed and controlled from Crestron touchpanels to establish the desired ambiance for various occasions, such as a sales meeting or corporate event.
After welcoming guests and understanding their unique interests and needs, the Crestron Experience Center features several fully functional, state-of-the-art rooms in which to demonstrate how the latest technology looks, sounds and functions in a real-world environment. The p
resentation room and executive boardroom are completely furnished, and feature the latest solutions including a Digital Projection dVision projector and a Pioneer HD display, Hunter Douglas motorized shades and Crestron audio, video and control systems.
Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing adds, “These aren’t simulated or mock application vignettes. These are actual installed systems in real fully-operational rooms.” Bruno continues, “No cost was spared and no detail was overlooked, right down to the modern designer bathroom, which is also Crestron controlled.”
The Theo Kalomirakis Home Theater, designed by the father of home theater himself, delivers the highest quality HD video and surround sound experience. Featuring Crestron PROCISE™ 7.3 HD surround sound processing, ADMS Intermedia Delivery System, Digital Projection TITAN three-chip 1080p projector, Stewart Filmscreen 143-inch CineCurve screen, Revel speakers, RPG acoustical room treatments and CinemaTech theater seats, guests are treated to nothing short of media euphoria.
Finally, the interactive design lab features more than 500 Crestron products on display. At their leisure, clients can peruse, compare and evaluate working, fully programmed entertainment systems, touchpanels and remote controls, lighting and HVAC systems. The entire facility has a digital infrastructure, fully wired with Crestron’s revolutionary DigitalMedia™ (DM) Cable and DM components installed throughout, allowing visitors to experience the only end-to-end digital solution available today.
“It’s one thing to read a spec sheet online or flip through a catalog,” says Bruno. “But step into an environment like this and actually push buttons and watch magic happen is the best way to understand the benefits and value of our solutions.”
The Crestron Experience Center officially opened October 20th.
The Fine Art of Concealing
It’s no secret that flat-screen televisions are flying off retailer’s shelves and finding their way into living rooms, family rooms and media rooms across the country. But even before they’re installed, many homeowners are looking for ways to hide them from view when not in use. After all, a large slab of black glass mounted on the wall doesn’t complement the décor of most rooms.
Homeowners, interior decorators are turning to Precise Systems for innovative solutions to conceal home theater components and flat-screen televisions. Our solutions are perfect for residential installations, hotels, conference rooms and other commercial applications.
Concealing with Fine Art:
One of our solutions is concealing your television with Fine Art. Clients can chose from a large variety of custom frames and museum-quality prints that are on a motorized canvas that raises and lowers to reveal a television. Precise Systems helps you install and conceal technology into areas of the home where it would sometimes be welcomed.
How does it Work?
The system consists of a metal back-box, outfitted with a picture frame and a motorized assembly that raises and lowers the artwork. The back-box or housing can be surface mounted or recessed into a wall depending on the type of components to be covered. Each unit is custom made in almost many different display sizes.
There are more than 50 pre-finished frames to choose from. Frames come in different qualities, finishes and widths to suit the style of any décor.
There are three galleries of fine art from which to choose. The Premiere Gallery offers more than 300 limited-edition fine art prints, with each signed and numbered by the artist. The Asian Gallery, inspired by traditional Asian partition screens, includes an artist’s seal, and the Décor Gallery, consisting of unlimited edition prints, ranges in style from modern to traditional. The homeowner can also provide a digital file of a family photo or other artwork for the canvas.
The artwork is printed on the canvas using the Giclee process, a French term for “fine spray.” The digital process sprays special ink with 512 shades and more than 16 million gradations of color onto a 100-year-old archival canvas.
Concealing television displays with fine art is an elegant solution for both residential and commercial applications. If you are interested in purchasing a unit of your own please contact us so that we can get you started. Each unit is custom built around a television and therefore the lead time on the custom order is 6-8 weeks.
