Project 1: Visit Denver – Headquarters
About Visit Denver
In 2013, 14 million visitors spent $4 billion in Denver, contributing $976 million in state and local tax revenues. Visit Denver’s goal is to bring conventions and leisure visitors to Denver for the economic benefit of the City, the community and membership.The headquarters is where board members and staff members collaborate and plan for tourism and expansion.
Integrate presentation and meeting solutions to multiple rooms throughout the multi-story downtown facilities. During a massive remodel, Logic Integration was asked to come in during a short time to integrate multiple video walls, audio and video conferencing, along digital signage throughout the facility. All this needed to be controlled from one easy to use interface. This was part of a three-phase project in three different buildings. Multiple board and staff meetings are held throughout the day with many different users. The interface must be easy-to-use for a first-time user with very little IT support or instruction.Another challenge was only having access to a very small projection room for rear projection.
Design and build the technology systems for the Visit Denver Executive, Lobby Conference Room, Lobby Digital Signage, and Lobby Lounge. Installed a centralized audio and video system using Crestron and ClearOne. Planar displays were chosen for all video walls and displays due to 18 hours/day - 7 days per week high usage. IPads and Crestron and touch panels were installed to control all lighting, audio, video, and sources. Networking backbone is Pakedge POE and WAPS. Middle Atlantic rack’s were used to facilitate all the equipment and cool the equipment.Since the room for rear projection was so small, Logic Integration designed a rear projection mirrored system and projector by Barco. Stewart Star Glass was used for projection surface. Crestron lighting control was used for the conference rooms.

Project 2: KARCHER NORTH AMERICA
About This Project
Karcher NA is a world-wide leader in cleaning technologies. Their new office space, located near Denver International Airport, required audio/video and control technologies for their multiple meeting spaces. These include client training and demonstration areas, corporate meeting spaces. They also needed a room scheduling and management system.
Although the facility Karcher chose was already built, it had sat empty for several years and needed updates and renovations before they could move it. Many of the meeting spaces had to be renovated for their needs, and they needed a large demonstration area for their products.
Logic Integration designed and installed AV systems for the training rooms and corporate meeting spaces including the boardroom. The meeting rooms were outfitted with video and audio conferencing systems, with microphones integrated into the tables. The training rooms where outfitted with projectors and screens and sound systems for the trainers. A Crestron Fusion RV room scheduling system was deployed to manage the room scheduling.

Project 3: Colorado State Capital
About This Project
In mid 2013, Logic Integration was contacted to help with some much needed upgrades to the audio systems of the Colorado State Capital.The State Capitol and other buildings within it’s campus was built back in the 1890’s and opened in 1894.While the public has noticed the recent major renovation of the beautiful Gold Dome, much has been taking place indoors aswell.With all of the new technology changes over the past 120 years, the design implantation of ever changing systems has a long history within these public halls.
The State Capitol is a large building and the Capitol Complex as a whole includes more than just the main Capitol building.After much discovery through several site walks that included many more rooms, a complex and rather old analog audio system infrastructure was discovered that also allows sends audio to recording and streaming servers across the street in what used tobe the Colorado State Museum.This building now houses other legislative council chambers and offices including the Joint Budget Council (JBC). These audio systems are also distributed to what are referred toas Squawk Boxes within several legislative offices. Working in either building presents many design, access and construction challenges.New vsold construction considerations, lead based paint and the need to protect the historic finishes.When it came to the systems themselves, the legal requirement to retain many of the existing functions on the analog systems, was a must.Though the long term goal isto complete a Dante Audio network, the analog routing was still required.
The Solutions So Far:
Logic integration has been honored to work in Council Rooms 112, 356 and what is referred toas the Old Supreme Court.The JBC was fully upgraded in early 2014, and most recently in late 2014 the new remodel of room 271 was a beautiful full new room install.Logic as done 5 other projects in 2016 and 2016. Logic has now installed Teleconferencing, Video Distribution & Video conferencing, using the full features of the Lectrosonics Aspen Series DSP, Crestron DMPS-300-C Audio/Video & Control processors and Vaddio Cameras and Audio Bridging Devices.FSR table devices for mics, and Crestron Flip-top Cubbies have performed well and brought elegant user friendly finishing touches to these upgrades and new construction projects.

Project 5: Douglas County Traffic Management Center
About This Project
The purpose of the Traffic Management Center is to provide control and communication with the traffic signals and other traffic devices located along the County roadway network. Through the visual confirmation of problems using the traffic surveillance camera images, Douglas County traffic management staff can plan what equipment to bring to the location where problems have been identified. Additionally, using remote communications and capabilities, maintenance staff can diagnose, and sometimes repair problems without leaving the office. All this works toward Douglas County’s goal to provide excellent service to the public.
The room required a large video wall to support IP video feeds from long-range field pan-tilt-zoom cameras and various servers and systems. The room required seating for two operators and it needed to receive video feeds from various county servers and PCs as well as audio and video from DirecTV and IPTV for traffic and weather reporting. System reliability was a requirement, as was the ability for 24x7 365 operations.
The system had to be installed and completed in time for the holiday shopping season, which required a fast-track approach for the Logic Integration team. The system included a very large video wall and switching for multiple inputs. The system also required expansion capabilities for future requirements. The TMC staff also needed to control all audio, video, and lighting from a control touch panel that was located at the control desk
Logic Integration designed and installed a Planar Clarity Matrix Video Wall system with fifteen 46” HD 1080P displays. Cabling was installed to the displays from Planar processors and power supplies which were located in the server room to reduce heat and noise in the control room. To handle the complex video switching and processing, Logic Integration turned to RGB Spectrum, who recommended an RGB Spectrum Galileo Processor and Switcher and Galileo Client Software was installed. This IP-enabled video wall processor supports H.264 IP and decodes full motion video. Logic Integration also installed and programmed a Crestron lighting control system that was managed by the Crestron 7” touchpanel- providing control of all the lighting, audio, and system sources.

Project 6: WAGNER TRAINING INSTITUTE
About This Project
Wagner Training Institute was created to combine all types of tactical and technical training on Wagner Equipment, together under one roof. This “One-Stop” training provides technical training (service training), computer training, staff development, and management development training to internal employees, Wagner Equipment Co. customers, and to local businesses that use their services.
Wagner Equipment requires a technology upgrade to the Grand Junction Training Rooms 1/2/3. This project involves the design and installation of audio and visual technologies to facilitate presentation and training in the rooms which can be divided orcombined into 1, 2 or 3 room configurations.
The following observations were made and discussed during the discovery meeting: The current Projection system and Screens are dated, create a glare and do not perform upto standard viewing capability. The current system is not intuitive and requires a full page of instruction to operate correctly.There has been feedback and cracking on the audio system from time to time.There isno Digital Video input capability.There is a rack DVD player that never gets used.
Objective #1 The primary objective isto deliver a quality Audio and Video experience that will deliver an excellent experience for instructors and training attendees. Quality HD Video is a critical component as the room is used for both Power Point and Video training content on a daily basis.
Objective #2 The second objective isto deliver an easy to use control interface that is both intuitive and reliable. There will be a touch panel ineach room, which will control system power on/off, source selection, volume up/down, and room configuration.
Objective #3 The final objective isto give digital input capability, with HDMI, VGA, and Audio input wall plates located in each room. All video sources will be able to sent to a single display, or multiple displays via a digital video matrix switch.
The Grand Junction Training Rooms are used to combine all types of tactical and technical training on Wagner Equipment, together under one roof. These rooms are combinable with 4 total configurations. The rooms will each have a large LCD display, HDMI & VGA Input, in-ceiling speakers, and on-wall touch panel. The audio and video systems will integrate with the room configuration and combine both audio and video sources depending on the layout. The equipment rack is located in room 1. The existing projectors and screens were removed by Logic Integration and delivered to the client for disposal.

Project 7: Air Methods, Colorado
About This Project
Logic Integration was contracted to design and install AV systems for the new Air Methods training facility in Aurora, CO. The facility includes training rooms for mechanics, pilots, and medical staff. The primary training room is one large room which can be sub-divided two different rooms. The client requested the ability to use the room in both the combined and separated mode, and the ability to share sources, content, and sound in both areas. The system consists of Crestron control processors, a BiAmp audio DSP system which handles audio from sources and the wired and wireless microphones, 5500 lumen projectors, and Egan podiums. Each side of the room is controlled with a Crestron screen which controls the systems and the combine and separate modes. The system is very easy to use and only requires a few button presses for the instructors. The smaller training rooms included 70” LCD panels and microphone systems.
Project 8: Henry’s Tavern, Denver Colorado
About This Project
Logic Integration was asked to design and install a turnkey AV system for a new restaurant and tavern in downtown Denver called Henry’s Tavern. The Restaurant required an audio system with multiple zones and a control system to manage the approximately 25 TV’s and satellite receivers
Logic Integration provided the audio system for Henry’s Tavern. The system includes Crestron Pendant speakers throughout the Tavern. The Customer has the ability to turn the TV’s on and off via a Crestron system which includes an Apple iPad and docking station for the iPad. The Crestron system provides audio zone capability, with the ability to have audio from a cable channel played in one area and music in another, or for the same audio source to be played in all areas. Logic Integration wired and installed the audio system and programmed the Crestron system with a simple layout on the Crestron iPad. A paging microphone was installed at the front desk for overhead paging through the system. A power management system and a mini-PC was installed in the rack, which provides the ability for remote access to the system for service issues.
Project 9: Bridging People With Quality of Life Resources
Water For People, headquartered in Denver, CO, is a not-for-profit organization working to provide access to sustainable drinking water, sanitation facilities and hygiene education programs from communities in the developing world. To bring water to the 1.8 billion people without water and the 2.5 billion without adequate sanitation facilities, the nonprofit coordinates with local leaders, entrepreneurs, governments and remote team members, building their capacity to support their own citizen basic services for the long-term.

Project 10: Edge Church
Aurora, CO The grand opening for Edge Church was in 2009. Over the past several years the church's membership has expanded to include multiple services with several hundreds of attendees.
Great music is a significant part of the worship service for Edge Church, but the interior design finishes posed a few challenges. The concrete floors, high ceilings and hard finished walls created significant audio reverberation issues. In addition, the church wanted the ability to distribute video to a large presentation screen in the sanctuary and share the video with the overflow rooms and additional space throughout the church.
Logic Integration developed an acoustic treatment design to absorb the audio reflected off of the hard surfaces of the room. Additionally, the company provided a 198" Draper projection screen and 7,000 lumen DPI projector for the sanctuary presentations. A video routing and distribution network controlled via a Crestron touch panel and processor was integrated to give Edge Church the ability to share the Sanctuary presentations and camera feed to the additional rooms.
Project 11: Childrens Museum Denver
About This Project
Logic Integration was approached by Jonathan Goldstein of the Children’s Museum to provide him with the design and implementation of a rather unusual project. With the museum being completely overhauled with all new exhibits, Mr. Goldstein had envisioned the entry of the museum having a large abstract tree attraction with displays mounted throughout a series of copper tubes in the place of branches. At the end of the tube a display would act as the “leaf” of the exhibit, and at the base of the tree a station would be set up for guests to take a picture upon entry. Once the picture is taken it then is transmitted up into the canopy and the guest’s picture would randomly make its way through the displays.
Logic Integration installed an equipment rack at the base of the tree, which included; a Crestron Control Processor, a 48 port Pakedge enterprise network, Panamax Bluebolt power and monitoring system, and a Mac Mini server.
For the displays in the canopy Logic Integration wired and installed thirty Planar 46” displays. Each display was also connected to a Mac Mini client, which was custom mounted to the rear of each display. The thirty Mac Mini’s were wired back to the central switch and served as an extension of the Mac Mini server. The displays were mounted in a variety of formations. Some were tilted and others were mounted face down. All the displays offered a strange and different mounting scenario.
The interface at the base of the tree utilizes the photo booth application running on the Mac Mini Server. The big green button utilized by the Museum guests was custom made to interface with the program. The code written for the exhibit auto focuses the mouse click to the photo booth’s “snap picture”command so that the experience is the same every time. Once a picture of a guest is taken, that image is randomly sent to all the mac mini’s above through the use of a custom written web link. Then each display can show the photo taken for a period of time. The idea is, as new guests arrive and take their photo, the canopy of displays will shuffle through the thirty most recent images. The thirty-first image drops off as new pictures are taken.
There was also a custom interface created and loaded to the reception desk computer. This gave the Museum staff the options to delete photos as well as load custom logos or themes to all the displays. The code also reboots each pc if there is a power loss or a problem. When the system reboots the code launches a script to insure that the Photo Booth program is re-launched and everything returns to normal operating functionality.
