The Art of Project Documentation

Possibly the most important element in the smooth running of any project is the quality of the prepared documentation. This includes the bill of materials (the quote), functional (Architectural) specification, cable schedules, schematic drawings, plan drawings and detail drawings. This course will teach you how to use documentation to ensure great project communication. Attendees will receive practical tips on how to layout the documents as well as going through proper revision management. All delegates will be given a CD with sample drawings and documentation..

Miguel Soto's insight:

In the typical method of approach where the systems integrators are focused more on sale of equipment and installation rather than engineering and design a system is DYING!!!
Come and join me this 11 of February (Room :D201) in The Art of Project Documentation course at ISE 2015 with a new perspective.

FreeTools PSL (Professional Symbol Library)

FreeTools PSL (Professional Symbol Library) | Custom Integration | Scoop.it
Industry-standard symbols for Visio

FreeTools PSL (Professional Symbol Library) is a free D-Tools application designed to provide Microsoft® Visio users with multiple libraries of industry-specific plan view shapes that will help make it both easier to create drawings using universally accepted industry standards and clearly communicate with trade professionals.

FreeTools PSL is initially available with three Symbol Libraries – Audio-Video-Control, Security, and Custom. The AVC (Audio-Video-Control) stencils are a residential version based on the J-STD-710 symbols created by a joint committee from CEDIA, CEA and InfoComm. The Security stencils are based on the SIA Architectural Graphic Standard, and the Custom stencils contain useful symbols such as wire, text call out, and a Universal dimension shape.

FreeTools ships with a pre-defined set of drawing templates based on metric and imperial unit drawing sizes. Once the FreeTools software is registered, all drawings will feature your company information, logo and project information for a professional look.

Future versions of FreeTools symbols will include FSE (Fire-Safety-Emergency) stencils based on the NFPA 170 Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols as well as ECD (Electrical Construction Drawings) based on the NECA-1002606 standards. The FreeTools PSL standalone plug-in is compatible with Visio 2007 to Visio 2013 and consists of a set of specific plan view Visio stencils and Visio templates. All FreeTools standard symbols are based on actual industry standards.

Speakers (also called loudspeakers) push and pull surrounding air molecules in waves that the human ear interprets as sound. You could even say that hearing is movement detection. So what makes a speaker travel back and forth at just the right rate and distance, and how does that make sound? This animagraff made the front... Animagraffs by Jacob O’Neal

3D Audio Delivers Dramatic Impact to Home Theater

3D Audio Delivers Dramatic Impact to Home Theater | Custom Integration | Scoop.it

Home theater packs in 30 speakers and 14 subwoofers for 3D surround sound effect.

The sheer number of speakers and subwoofers—which were all custom-built byCalifornia Audio Technology—to be installed would make this a challenging enough project to complete; add the fact that the Auro-3D technology was being continually refined by its developer Belgium-based Auro Technologies, throughout the three-year build out of the theater, and you’ve got the makings of one of the “toughest jobs we’ve ever done,” says HomeTronics president Greg Margolis. “There were no instruction books at the time written about Auro-3D for residential applications, and just as we thought we had it nailed the installation, Auro Technology changed its specs from one ceiling speaker per two side speakers to two ceiling speakers per two side speakers. We had to go back and add three more ceiling speakers to the room.  It was a true testament to a homeowner who was patient, understood the impact of 3D audio and was willing to go through some trial and error to have a one-of-a-kind home theater.”

What makes this installation even more remarkable is that none of the 44 speakers and subs is visible. Credit the foresight of the integrators at HomeTronics for this feat of stealth...
