Commercial Integration for the Commerce Club

Updated to today’s standards and beyond

The Commerce Club in Atlanta has long been known as the premiere business club in the downtown area. Located on the 49th floor of the 191 Peachtree Tower, the club boasts stunning panoramic views of the city and beyond. It was a pleasure getting to work in this incredible space alongside the friendly and informative staff. Their audiovisual system renovation was a welcomed collaborative experience. We used minimally invasive techniques to maintain the classic look of the architecture.

Our upgrade began with a 2 new tensioned HD format automatic screens by Draper. We were able to preserve the original casing by replacing the rollers and surfaces which saved lots of money in both parts and labor…and we saved valuable time! It also conserved on waste, making it an environmentally friendly choice.

The heart of our design was the new 4K ready 3LCD projectors by NEC. They produce the best quality color and clarity at the amazing price point we set. Business presentations can sometimes have small text, and by raising their resolutions we can get more pixels to help see the fine print!

The brains of our design came from one of our favorite manufacturers, Atlona. They produce a rock-solid control system that is feature rich but surprisingly affordable. Control systems of the past relied on source code that made it difficult for other integrators or clients’ own IT staff to modify or upgrade. Our new Velocity system by Atlona is easy to use and ready for the future upgrades and modifications we tend to have in the fast pace ever-changing world of audiovisuals. Our system provides total control over EQ and mic leveling for audio balancing in the ballrooms. Combining and separating rooms is a breeze, and source selection is one push of a button. The addition of Barco’s wireless collaboration tool, Clickshare CSE-200, is the touch that makes it sing. Now multiple presenters can screen share wirelessly with a USB button or by using the application on their smart phone or tablet. Presenting couldn’t be easier!

The soul of our renovation for the Commerce Club comes from our team. Led by our installation manager, Jake Elliott. Our clients were regularly updated and in constant communication on the progress. Initially, they were consulted on how best to plan and design an AV system for their ballroom and meeting rooms that meet their growing needs.
