Check out These Big Racks: Advancements in Power Management & Cooling
February 13, 2013, 2:00pm ET
Duration: 1 hour Presented by: Steve Crowe, CE Pro Panelists: Marc Mable, Design Consultant, Maverick Integration; Dave Raines, President/CEO, Osbee Industries; Amer Din, General Manager/CEO, Bethesda Systems
An integrator could easily contend that the equipment rack is the centerpiece of an entire installation. But racks are not just fabricated metal shelves anymore. In the past few years, manufacturers have integrated two key technologies into their racks: thermal management and power management.
This one-hour webinar on equipment racks will provide key advice for dealers when choosing racks, as well as showcase some of the unique installations from the CE Pro “Show Us Your Racks” Contest.
A panel of integrators will go inside their award-winning racks to discuss thermal management, documentation, modularity, cable weight and access, rack height and placement, when to use blank plates and more. Attendees will learn best-practice tips for future installations, as equipment racks can be the most important choice when designing an A/V system.
