Hospitality


The hospitality market is highly customizable but has a constant need for cost effectiveness.  As hotels and convention centers grow in size, so too, grows the number of AV components and the cabling and labor necessary to implement the AV design.  HFP is constantly using techniques to consolidate electronic signals into fewer cables and searching for the product that performs the functions of several.  These efforts combine to yield a “lean” system cost to the owner and a more simplified, error-proof installation by the AV contractor.

 

HFP designs all components of a hospitality AV system:

  • Auditorium / ballroom main audio video system with distributed audio that can be divided to create smaller subsystems for partitioned spaces.
  • Media distribution across public areas including television streaming and digital signage with custom video overlays.
  • Comprehensive “matrix-style” routing of audio, video, and control signals from any floor box or wall box input to any output or a multiple of outputs.  This allows for more flexible operation of meeting rooms and ballrooms, and provides connection points for television production trucks that sit outside of the hotel during events.
  • Consolidation of multiple AV signal types on a fiber optic “backbone” for large scale projects.  This allows for cost effective signal transport with reduced copper cabling and metal conduit.

 

Some Representative Projects Include

Hilton Americas, Houston – Audio/visual/control services included complete design of audio video systems in all ballrooms, meeting rooms, and restaurants. Total
convention/meeting room area was 100,000 square feet. HFP also designed audio systems in public/pre-function/breakout areas as well as a centralized control for every system. Included in the design was comprehensive signal routing via fiber optic backbone.

The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, The Woodlands, Texas – Audio/visual/control services included complete design of audio video systems in the exhibit hall, restaurant, and all ballrooms and meeting rooms. Total convention/meeting room area was 70,000 square feet. HFP also designed audio systems in public/pre-function/breakout areas as well as a centralized control for every system.

Galveston Convention Center, Galveston, Texas – Audio/visual/control services included complete design of audio video systems in the exhibit hall, ballroom and meeting spaces. Total convention/meeting room area was 100,000 square feet. HFP also designed audio systems in public/pre-function/breakout areas as well as a centralized control for every system.

Doubletree St. Louis Conference Center, St. Louis, Missouri – Audio/visual/control services included complete design of audio video systems in the meeting spaces, totaling 35,000 square feet. HFP also designed control systems for each meeting room with the capability for future expansion with a centralized control system.
