The Lewis Bear Company

Pensacola, FL

The Lewis Bear Company, a large beverage distributor, built a new facility that includes a corporate meeting room, which doubles as a conference room and party space. The system includes a complete 7.1 surround system, hidden projection system with Crestron control, multimedia lectern, and motorized shades for a completely automated package.

The client wanted something easy to use and something that could not be seen when not in use since the room doubles as an event room, so a Crestron control system was added. The speakers are flush-mounted, and the projector screen retracts into the ceiling.

A Draper Revelation system was used to conceal the projector system, so it never moves. (When the projector needs to be used, a panel in the ceiling folds down.) The stationary projector also helps the stability of the image being projected.

Motorized window treatments were also installed in order to black out windows. The windowsill was built to avoid light leakage. Microphones and televisions were also supplied.
