ProAVcomm shares the importance of having a good AV partner.
Many fitness facility owners may overlook the real benefits of their audio video (AV) systems when designing their space. Whether it’s a new construction design, remodel/retrofit, or upgrade to an existing system, the right AV equipment can have a significant impact on a club’s appeal. The members’ experience with the music and video provided by a properly designed system can increase satisfaction with the club and help with overall retention. Paying attention to this at the beginning of the process instead of an afterthought can be extremely important.
For video, having the appropriate balance TV quantity, size, locations and programming is another piece of the process. Video on-demand, DIRECTV and TV audio over WiFi need to be considered. Would the club’s bottom line benefit from digital signage? TVs for group exercise rooms, locker rooms, kids clubs, etc. should also be included in the conversation.
Music also sets the member impression for the club. The right audio equipment, placement and number of speakers and subs, balanced sound distribution throughout the facility are all equally important. Incorporating the club paging, announcement and telephone on hold music or advertising will need to be considered too. And how about the peace of mind that comes with CCTV installation for loss prevention and liability protection.
Finding the right AV company to partner with is equally important for the design, equipment purchase, installation and maintenance of the entire system as well. This is the best way to have AV solutions simplified.
