If you had a real health problem, would you look for solutions on the internet, or would you go to the best doctor to help you solve it?
If you are a professional in the audiovisual industry, having a specialized partner in engineering and installations to carry out your projects is a guarantee of success. Often, audiovisual integrations involve other trades such as construction, electricity, or HVAC to make them viable.
Investing in professional guidance with experience in all these elements is not an expense but an investment.
BROADCAST MEDIA AND PROFESSIONAL AV SERVICES
There is a significant difference between selling audiovisual equipment and audiovisual integration. When the goal is to build a specific technical area for recording, shooting, or post-production, it’s crucial that all installations within that space align with the intended purpose. This aspect of a project is not always given the importance it deserves, often because it’s assumed that the technicians who will operate the system are qualified to oversee such an implementation.
At Areacad, for over 15 years, we have been emphasizing this misconception within the industry. The response from all clients who engage us as consultants is consistent: “Consulting is not an expense but a clear investment that will result in economic savings and time efficiency for project execution. Additionally, it ensures that the integration outcome guarantees production quality over many years of system operation.”
Nowadays, production tools are more powerful, more accessible, and offer the possibility to optimize human resources in any production.
A well-defined production control, designed ergonomically to be operated even by a single person, is essential to optimize costs while maintaining a final product of professional quality.l.
New technologies for creating current and dynamic programs are becoming more accessible. Using the well-known chroma key or new high-definition LED screens, a small television studio can be amortized with a simple change of furniture, lighting, and content in the background.
These techniques, used by both major broadcasters and small internet broadcasting channels, allow for high-quality results by making the most of available resources.
The centralization of equipment in rack rooms is an added quality and peace of mind for our clients. The goal is to achieve quiet working rooms for operators and clients, without background fan noise and without unauthorized access to workstation content.
For large content platforms that operate globally today, it is essential that all equipment be centralized in the same room, monitored, and secured, simplifying maintenance and secure contro of all content.
Access control, video surveillance, monitoring of overheating, fire, and water leakage from air conditioning equipment are some of the multiple variables that come into play in a data center, easily controllable with an automation system with immediate alerts to mobile devices.
Every detail matters: from defining the most appropriate DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) for the client’s work, to sizing the channels of the system, to the type of visualization system,, air conditioning, or lighting to be used.
Each element well defined during the overall design of the studio will determine the results it will produce throughout its life, at all levels. Good foundations during the design and construction of the studio are not an expense but a necessary and essential investment.
Nowadays, it is necessary to quickly and agilely reate new spaces for video editing, post-production, or color correction. Given the tight deadlines in today’s productions, it is essential to have a clear understanding from the beginning of what is worth investing in when creating these spaces.
Soundproofing between rooms, work lighting,cleanliness, air conditioning and air renewal, types of viewing, access control, and content security are elements that must be well defined before starting to build a post-production area, allowing them to be constructed within the defined timeframe, containing the budget while achieving optimal results when they are put into operation.
A fundamental aspect of any audiovisual workspace is its acoustic behavior.
Addressing soundproofing to prevent sound generated within a room from escaping or external sounds from entering and affecting work is not only a requirement for a sound studiobut also for any workspace or meeting room in an office. You may invest in the best audiovisual equipment available, but if the room’s acoustics are not ideal, it will be impossible to fully leverage that equipment. That’s why it’s crucial to consider all aspects of the project together, making the necessary and specific investments in each area.
If there is a true technical and construction challenge, undoubtedly a theater. In large audiovisual spaces, many technical and architectural disciplines converge, and each of them directly affects the space’s response and operation during an event.
Architecture, acoustics, furniture, evacuation, sound, lighting… a great result can only be achieved if the right steps are taken during the project definition and construction.
Audiovisual consulting is essential in the conception and execution of any concert hall, auditorium, lecture hall, conference room, or theater.
Support and Maintenance: When dealing with a professional audiovisual project, it is essential that the design and execution are well-planned to ensure that the result, once construction is completed, is optimal. However, it’s equally important to maintain the installations in the best condition throughout their lifespan to achieve maximum results and productivity.
Corrective maintenance is necessary to resolve any issues, but preventive maintenance is just as important. This allows us to always know the status of all systems, enabling us to anticipate the majority of incidents and reducing the need for corrective actions.
Furthermore, due to the rapid pace of technological advancements today, it is highly recommended to regularly assess areas where updates can be made to your installation and implement them as needed. Failing to do so may result in your installation becoming completely obsolete within a certain period, requiring a complete overhaul and a significant investment all at once.
"When we began to build our new offices, we wanted to do it in the most accurate way possible, without surprises. A construction company can build any project presented to them, but without specialized engineering to define and oversee every detail in projects as complex as ours, the result can be very different from what was expected and lead to unforeseen costs throughout the construction.
Having Areacad as consultants for all the civil work of our new production center provided us with the peace of mind of knowing that everything was being constructed with the necessary requirements to work subsequently with the highest quality and ergonomics possible, which undoubtedly reflects in the quality of our productions."
"From the Foundation for the Development of Nursing, Fuden, we requested a project from Areacad for the creation of a television studio with a large LED screen. From the very beginning, we could perceive the professionalism and thoroughness in the needs assessment and the proposal presented. The final result has been very satisfactory, and any improvements or issues we encountered during the installation were resolved efficiently. Finally, once it was up and running, the technical support has been prompt and effective."
"AREACAD has made it possible to turn an ambitious project into reality. Our new multipurpose room covers all the needs of ECAM, as it manages to bring together in the same space a mixing room, color correction, digital and 35 mm projection, allowing us to hold events in the cinema hall such as international seminars or masterclasses, like the one we held with Alain Bergala, a prominent figure in the French and international film industry. The result is a cutting-edge technological space that meets all the expectations set out in the project's design from the beginning."
"Our experience with AREACAD has been very positive. We are happy and satisfied with both the work carried out and the attention received from the staff. They are very professional, fast, and efficient."
