After being involved in the Funeral industry for approximately 10 years where we have designed and installed over 150 AV systems (with more than 130 all over Australia for Invocare), we have a thorough knowledge of requirements for this industry. In 2013 it was time to develop a system that would take us to a new level of excellence for future requirements. These requirements are continually being refined to incorporate new products on the market to provide better quality and cost effectiveness.

Following is a brief outline of the design of the new High Definition AV System developed by Audiovision for Funeral Chapels.  The main priorities in the design have been a "user friendly operator interface" touchpanel as well as high reliability by using high quality "professional" equipment whilst also being relatively cost effective. The system can be easily scaled to any size or amount of displays (42"- 90" LCD/LED screens or Projection – using new Laser lampless projection technology).                                                      

Design Concepts: Most media formats can be played back through the system with high reliability recording and web-streaming in MP4 format.

Audio Playback Devices: CD/USB Player:  Allows normal CD or MP3 discs to be played as well as MP3/Wav/AAC files into the USB input. MP3/IPOD input:  Allows any player with a headphone audio output can be plugged into the 2 x RCA inputs on the rack panel. This is an analogue audio input. Last Post, Reveille, Ode: Digital Messages played back from an internal SD card operated from touch panel.  Background Music: Plays continuously if selected. Lectern and Wireless Microphones: A high quality lectern mic and a Handheld wireless microphone with volume and mutes operated from the touch panel. These inputs have feedback eliminators to avoid feedback.

Video Playback Device: Oppo Media Player: A high quality Blu-ray (DVD) player that can play most video formats including MP4's into the USB port and a HDMI input for Powerpoint presentations via laptop. Video Cameras: 3 x HD-SDI fixed view cameras provide 3 different views of the chapel.

Recording: A recording/streaming device provides a high quality H.264/MP4 video file that is recorded to a NAS (Network Hard drive).  This unit can also live stream the service to the internet for viewing across all formats. A network connected laptop (i.e. in the office) can view the recording of the service live as well as copy the MP4 recording from the NAS onto a USB drive to give to the client.                                  

Operators Lectern: The equipment rack can be installed inside a timber cabinet in the form of a lectern where the operator stands.

 * We also provide portable sound systems for graveside ceremonies.
