Motorized Art Collection Hides HDTVs

By Grant Clauser
Crestron controls and lifts by Electro Kinetics help art integrate with electronics.

So picture this, you're building a gorgeous new riverfront property. You want delicious views of the water, lots of natural light and an airy modern feel to complement your extensive art collection.

You also want an exceptional audio, video and control system so you can enjoy movies, music and television with ease. But how do you make your fine art collection not clash with your top-line TVs and speakers?

To make those two worlds play nicely together you need to bring in pros who know integration and the systems that make them rock. The owner of this 12,000-square-foot home in Hyde Park, NY, called in Audio Video Systems of Plainview, NY to take on the task.
