Live Nation contacted BCG Concepts to set up a proper conference room on the top floor of their building, as the temporary setup they had was just not making the grade. The scope included fabrication of a custom cabinet, installing motorized drapes, full 5.1 surround sound, and touch panel control of the LCD and projector.
We chose Crestron Electronics for this application because of the well known brand's expertise in automation and control over the past 30 years. An 8.4” wireless touch panel sits cradled in an in-wall dock for charging when not in use. Users have access to Cable TV, DVD, CD and a range of hook-ups from the center of the conference table including laptop and mp3 connections.
This was a complete turnkey system from start to finish as the client expressed its needs and BCG handled everything from system design to procuring the reliable sub contractors to install the shades and custom cabinet. BCG prides itself on working with the best in the industry for all trades which allow us to have complete control of the project from start to finish.

When Savistky, Satin, & Bacon moved locations, the called upon BCG Concepts to install High-Definition flat panel displays in the conference rooms as well as many of the individual offices. In the main conference room, an HDMI cable connects an HD DirecTV box to the display and an Rapid Run VGA cable connects to the middle of the conference room table for laptop presentations.
The rest of the offices have DirecTV and VGA connections as well at their desks for client presentations. As authorized dealers of all major electronics brands, we provided the displays and installation and a competitive price with free delivery.
Black Friday is just around the corner, and we’re all about to be overwhelmed with too-good-to-be-true sounding deals on everything, particularly all those flat panel TVs. Before you gobble down your Thanksgiving pie so you can be in line by midnight for that 70” big screen, let’s take a look at the options, and BCG will help you navigate all the choices.
#1 - Size it up
Before you hit the stores, consider your actual space. A 70” television might be enticing, but depending on how your room is set up and how close you’ll be seated, bigger is not always better. Start by assessing the space, the size of the room, the shape, and the arrangements. Then measure how far you’ll be seated from the screen. The further the distance, the bigger the screen your room can handle, and ideally, you probably want the biggest display your space can handle, without going overboard. Check out the measurements below to estimate the perfect size displays for your home:
#2 - Screen Type
Now that you have an idea of maximum and minimum screen sizes that will work best; we can start to navigate the available HDTV display options. Understanding the differences between the types and considering your primary usage will help you to pick the perfect display.
#3 - Accessories
So you’ve made your choice of HDTV, excitedly get it home and suddenly realize you’re in need of a return trip to the store to be able to set it up and actually enjoy your new toy. Just as important as choosing the right actual television, you’ll want to make sure you have all the correct cables and accessories to set it up.
Now you’re ready to head out and find your new HDTV. By preparing with our top 3 tips for choosing an HDTV, you’ll be able to make the best choice for your space, eliminating any Black Friday buyer’s remorse, and making that discount deal all the sweeter.
The Buckley School called on BCG Concepts to work with them in designing a "technology room" where students could relax and experience the latest and greatest technology at their finger tips.
The room features a 146" CyberTouch touch screen video wall with 40 simultaneous touch points - this means 4 students with two hands each can be using the board at the same time (that's forty fingers in case you were counting :))
There are two additional 55" Samsung LED displays used for a gaming wall that have Xbox360 Kinect and Nintendo Wii. Students can play games side by side or online against each other using the two setups.
The control, audio, and video distribution system is from Crestron Electronics. The entire space is controlled with the Apple iPad running Crestron Mobile Pro G. A 6x6 HDMI video switch from Crestron sends Blu-Ray, Mac Mini, PC, Laptop connections and more to any of the displays in the room in any combination.
Four Klipsch speakers are installed in the ceiling using custom wood frames wrapped in acoustic fabric to match the ceiling fabric.
