ClearOne’s New State-Of-The-Art Trailer
Recently we had the opportunity to assist ClearOne Communications(801-975-7200), a cutting-edge conferencing and collaboration product developer, with the installation of some video equipment in their new Showcase Trailer that will be toured throughout at least 18 cities in the Western U.S.
Back in December, ClearOne gave us a call and let us know that they had purchased a trailer that they wanted to turn into a mobile showroom so that they can showcase their products. We did a site visit, took some measurements, had a few discussions, and they sent us a rendering of what they wanted to do. Based on our measurements of the trailer, we recommended the size of the video wall and slide-out flat-panels.
Here is the equipment that we ended up installing:
8 – 49″ Sony XBR 4K UHD Flat Panels
9 – 32″ LG 4K UHD Flat Panels
5 – Strong Large Fixed Mounts
1 – Chief Cinematic Motorized Lift
9 – Chief Fixed Wall Display Mounts
1 – Custom Mounting Hardware
15 – Various lengths Binary 4K UHD HDMI Cables
For information on the products they installed and what they will be showcasing, you can read their blog post here.
As what usually happens on projects, we encountered a few challenges – figuring out the thickness of the outside walls so we could mount the mounts for the 3×3 video wall; aligning the video wall so that all the TVs are level and close together; come up with a good plan to provide power to all the TVs; and mounting the additional 6 TVs on the slide out (they needed to be level and spaced evenly) – but nothing we were unable to overcome.
We ended up extending the low voltage portion of the power supply cables so that the converter is concealed in the lower cabinets. This enabled us to make it look nice while still providing power where it was needed.
For video and audio distribution, we were able to run HDMI cables through the walls and use Cat-6 cables for the slide out TVs. We also had to run cables from the cabinets up behind the TVs, above in the ceiling, and then down the opposite side of the trailer to the other slide out.
Here’s what our progress looked like:
