Brian edwards
Brian Edwards

  • Brian Edwards recognized early on that exciting stories combined with

  • captivating visual images and sound not only heighten the guest

  • experience, but communicate ideas, sell products, entertain and inspire.

  • His talent for designing the finest technology solutions to enhance any

  • story has helped make his company, Edwards Technologies, Inc. (ETI),

  • one of the busiest and most respected firms in the industry.

  • Edwards began his career in Southern California in the early 1970s,

  • designing and installing home stereo systems for such clients as Michael

  • Jackson and legendary record producer Lou Adler. Soon, he was setting

  • up high-performance audio and lighting systems in Los Angeles’ hottest

  • discos and nightclubs. In 1980, as multisensory environments began to

  • find a broader market, Edwards began integrating video displays and

  • playback systems into his audio and lighting systems.

  • In 1984, Edwards founded ETI, getting its first big break when Universal

  • Studios Hollywood asked the company to replace its old film systems with

  • video arrangements. This opened the door to other opportunities, which

  • led to ground-breaking and award-winning projects with leading theme

  • parks, museums, retail outlets and corporations, including LEGO theme

  • parks and retail stores, Nike’s Tiger Woods Center, Vans stores,

  • GameWorks, Volkswagen Autostadt, the International Spy Museum, the

  • Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Battle Stations 21 and most

  • recently The National Infantry Museum. As CEO of ETI, Brian takes a

  • hands-on approach to building stimulating environments. Whether it’s

  • building a theme park, or performing a sound and video installation, every

  • phase of every project must first meet with Brian’s approval. It’s this kind

  • of attention to detail that has resulted in the company’s 100 percent on-

  • time project completion record.

  • “I see myself as an electronic storyteller,” says Brian. “ETI

  • helps companies tell their story by developing extraordinary

  • immersive experiences that can’t be found anywhere else.”

  • Edwards currently serves as the chairman for the Urban Land Institute’s

  • Entertainment Development Council, and is past president of the Themed

  • Entertainment Association (TEA), an international alliance of the world’s

  • leading location-based entertainment professionals.

Engineering

  • Upon approval to proceed the engineering staff will begin the engineering process, broken down into distinct processes below:

  • Initial Schematic: Following a study of all project documents and an interview with the client (if necessary) the lead engineer on the project will determine that all equipment selected for the job is viable and cost effective for the intended use. At this time all issues with functionality and operability will be settled, and elements such as serviceability and maintenance issues will be addressed and resolved. Standards of cable manufacturers and types of cable required will be settled, and a study will be conducted to determine the best location for the equipment and the power and heat loads produced. This information, in turn, will be provided to the client for their use and approval. Once equipment locations have been determined floor and ceiling plans will be produced in Autocad showing all equipment locations and loads as well as all infrastructure required to support the system(s). This drawing set will be transmitted to the MEP engineer so a stamped permit set of drawings can be produced.

  • Block Design: Engineering will proceed on the project at the block design level in order to achieve a 50% design for review by the client and/or operators to ensure that the design encaptures all elements desired, and that the system will function as required. This drawing set will be made available to all parties concerned for review and comment. Once the review and comments are returned a second and even third pass at the design will be made until any and all issues are resolved,

  • Detail Design: After all issues have been resolved a final drawing set will be produced and presented that includes all floor and ceiling plans, block diagrams, and detailed design drawings will be produced for review and comment. This process will be repeated until the drawings are satisfactory to all concerned. They will then be stamped and issued for construction at which time rack and equipment fabrication will begin.

Environmental sustainability
Environmental Sustainability

  • At Edwards Technologies, Inc., we believe in protecting the environment in as many ways as possible.

  • Energy Star As an integral part of our business practices, we recommend using Energy Star rated equipment whenever possible to reduce energy usage and waste. One example of the products we highly recommend is the LCD monitor. LCD monitors have several advantages over traditional monitors such as:

  • -Smaller size -Less eyestrain -Lower power consumption -Less heat generation -Lighter weight -Better image contrast

  • AMX – Programming Through our control systems, such as AMX, we can program power management solutions to save energy and help reduce air pollution by putting equipment automatically into Standby mode when not in use. Through AMX programming, we can also turn equipment such as projectors and DVD players off at a specific time. Equipment that spends a large portion of time in Standby mode not only saves energy, but can save money by extending the life of your equipment.

  • Client

  • Grand Teton National Park

  • Date of Completion

  • August 2007

  • Scope of Work

  • Engineering, fabrication, installation, training and documentation for

  • audio, video , and show control systems.

  • Challenges/Solutions

  • The “Video Rivers,” three strips of walk-over glass flooring, having

  • a rear-projection screen membrane laminated within. This allows for nine video-projectors (three per “river”) recessed into pits below floor level to create images on the glass floor. An associated stereo audio track plays from speakers located in the scenic elements nearby. The rivers are an integral part of three themed attraction areas named “Preservation”, “People”, and “Place”.

  • The “Mountaineering”, “Geology”, and “Backcountry” exhibits employ individual flat-panel video-displays installed into various scenic elements. In the case of Mountaineering and Backcountry, audio plays through associated speakers. Geology is a smaller display forming part of the “Place” attraction.

  • The “Daily Bulletin” flat-panel video-display presents content produced locally at the editing suite in the office space of the visitor center.

  • The “Orientation Model” exhibit is where a Ranger uses a laser-display projected onto a topographical relief-map to aid live presentations.

  • The “Show-control” system allows staff to control the exhibits from the main reception-desk, the A/V racks, or the Video Rivers pits. The control system was set up to allow ETI staff to access the system remotely for trouble shooting and monitoring purposes.

    Installing the projectors below the floor for the Video Rivers was a

    physical challenge as was the preparation of media. ETI worked closely

    with the producers of the media to ensure the design intent was met,

    advising on, media format requirements and programming the

    synchronized nine channel playback system.

Digital signage network step by step process
Digital Signage NetworkStep by Step Process

  • Step 1:

  • Conduct a brainstorming session with key senior management to

  • determine the goal and purposes of the network.

  • Key Questions include:

  • Why do we want a network? (Is this for our customers, employee’s, visitors, etc?)

  • What will be the benefit to our company?

  • What examples of networks have we seen that we like? Why? We don’t like? Why?

  • What do we want on the network?

  • Information: temperature, date, time, stock quotes, news, emergency information, holiday or seasonal, etc.

  • Promotion: any items, products, companies, services, to be promoted in the building? How often do you want to update?

  • Entertainment: what would be of interest to our customers, employees, visitors, etc? How often do you want to update?

  • Where do we want the monitors located (To be determined LCD’s, and/or plasmas, projection systems, etc.)?

  • Budget: Has a budget been established to set-up and maintain the network?

  • Do we want to sell ad space on the network? If so, what space would be allocated (1/2 of the screen, full screen, scrolling text only, Logo in corner, etc?)

  • Who in their company will be responsible for coordinating, organizing in-company content, (option) selling the ad space*, etc. with the digital signage company?

  • *Note: ETI will manage and upload the provided content by the company and advertisers.

  • Step 2:

  • Share this information with the ETI. Ask that we send you a

  • proposal for the equipment, out-of-house content procurement (i.e.

  • subscription services to news, temperature, time, financial news,

  • etc.,) daily, weekly, monthly content scheduling, and equipment

  • maintenance.
