Bang & Olufsen Service Call: Pearl Valley 28 February 2014

We have many clients in Pearl Valley Golf Estate. Most of whom have various different Bang & Olufsen installations.
We were called out by a client that needed us to connect their Bang & Olufsen equipment to the LexNet system that is installed in their home.

We ordered the required CAT7 patch cables that link rooms together. These allow either Masterlink or Powerlink signals to be carried to various outlet wall-plates in different areas of the house.

Once the patching of the various rooms had been completed we found that the Audio in the dining room was not working correctly.

After tracing back all the cables to their respective points we established that the IR cable from the BeoLink IR eye had been damaged and incorrectly repaired.

We repaired it correctly and tested to find that all areas of the house were working and sounding good.

Crestron – Know it works

ISE – Integrated Systems Europe has just finished for this year.

This image caught our attention while we were keeping up to date with what was happening during the show.

Don’t hope it works. Know it works

This is very fitting and a good reason to trust Crestron Electronics for our installations. We don’t have to hope that the installation works. With the correct planning and testing we can guarantee that the installation will work perfectly.

“Don’t hope it works. Know it works”

Crestron Electronics offer great support internationally, which we have experienced ourselves. When working on a professional installation, this sort of back up service is reassuring for both clients and for us as professional audio video installers.
