Case Studies and scope of Premiere Audio Video Services
This installation is considered a retrofit application. The wall was not pre-wired for the system, plus the commercial mounts would extend the TVs almost 7 inches from the wall. It took precision measurements to align the residential wall brackets so that the TVs would line up on the wall as required.
The client wanted the ability to display one TV show across all TVs or 4 different shows at once. This required two 40 foot HDMI cables per TV. We also added several control cables to turn all TVs on or off at once.
This project called for four large flat panel TV's to be used in a home theater setting. The client wanted the ability to view either 1 or 4 different DirecTV sporting events at the same time. To achieve this Premiere Audio Video used LG's 47" video wall system and a Gefen video wall processor in addition to 4 DirecTV (1 HD Genie, and 3 standard HD receivers). Other electronics included a Sony Blu-ray DVD player, Pioneer Elite surround receiver, eight 15 meter HDMI cables, and a URC Universal remote control to operate the entire system.
Our first installation for the TV show Man Caves on the DIY television network. This installation included 6 HDTV's, 1 HD projector, a Draper 100" projector screen, 7 DirecTV receivers, a Yamaha receiver, a Bose surround system and 1 RTI remote control to control all of it.

In 2010 we were contacted by Leopard Films, the creators of the Man Caves TV shows on the DIY television network. They had asked us to help them with a project in Sykesville Md, that would include multiple screens, 7 DirecTV boxes, a sound system, and a single remote control to operate it all. The installation took 18 hours in 2 days. We were then invited to perform installations on an additional 5 Man Cave episodes, Including a Soccer Cave in New Jersey, and a multi-screen workout room for celebrity chef Michael Symon in Cleveland Ohio.
In 2011 we were contacted by The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy to update the sound and projector system in their conference area. We replaced the outdated Christie projectors with state-of-the-art Hitachi projectors which helped the brightness dramatically. We added new wireless microphones and later 2 new electric screens. For the visitor center, we removed their old paging system with Crown amplifiers, new microphones, and a DBX Zone pro controller. The controller routes 2 different CD players to the Cafe and souvenir areas, while the desk microphone can page throughout the entire visitor area while providing volume limiting and crossover frequency control for each area independently.
Since 2007 we've been a part of people's weddings, birthdays, business meetings, presentations, sporting events, anniversaries and more with our sound and video system rentals. One of our favorite events is the Epilepsy Foundation of Western / Central PA's annual walk / run in Pittsburgh, PA. The race starts outside of PNC Park where one of our larger sound systems is used by the event coordinators and local Pittsburgh celebrities to announce corporate sponsors, scholarship winners, and to express their gratitude to the hundreds of participants that show up to raise money for the foundation.
In 2009 we were contacted by the Westmoreland Fair Association to upgrade their stadium sound system. The previous system consisted of wooden cabinet "DJ" style speakers hung by chains around the Grandstand Arena. Obviously, a poor choice for equipment that was to be exposed to weather. Instead, we suggested and installed Community R.5 series paging horns, Crown amplifiers with built-in computer-programmable limiters, and a basic mixer with wireless microphone capabilities. The system was the perfect complement to the arena and can now be easily operated by any entry-level employee with little to no experience. Similar systems of ours can be found at the Mount Pleasant Area High School Stadium and Norvelt's Hurst Field.
