AMP’s global facility is a 24-hour operation, and the space needs to easily adapt to accommodate teleconferences during all times of the day and night. The "Future Room" is a conference space enclosed in glass. With the press of one button, the shades, lighting and other systems in the room adjust to a daylight, twilight or full darkness scene for teleconferencing with regions all over the world.
The Lutron GRAFIK Eye system allows for the integration of a variety of systems in the space, from skylight controls and AMX systems to motion detectors and partitioned spaces. The GRAFIK Eye system’s adaptability allows for the transformation of an auditorium from a theater to a boardroom depending on a group’s needs while at the same time providing for effective control of smaller spaces.
Robert Hinkle Jr., the electrical designer on the job, used GRAFIK Eye Designer software to generate the entire specification for the project. The software allows a designer to create load and equipment schedules, a bill of materials and one-line diagrams, saving valuable time.
"With a Lutron system you can use the same system for a small six-person conference room as with a multipurpose theater," said Hinkle. "To the end user, the system looks the same."
