POLAR - Taking care of the home front

The office was once the office, and home was once home. Not anymore. The lines between lifestyle choices and work essentials were once clearly drawn. But no longer.

The trend towards the use in the home of what once would have been considered ‘commercial’ technologies is not new by any means, but the circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic have been a catalyst for a revolution that has seen their application at the forefront of a changing way of life. The ingenuity of solutions that hitherto appeared to be the preserve of large educational or commercial projects can be put to equally good use in the home office, home cinema or any number of other domestic or small commercial settings. More often than not, it’s a question of scale rather than type - of choosing the right products to achieve practical and often very impressive outcomes...

POLAR is a name familiar as an established supplier of key industry brands to the AV Integration, MI and professional audio markets, with a dedicated section serving each market sector. With a wide-ranging brand portfolio at its fingertips, POLAR’s Integrated Solutions team works closely with systems integrators to offer a host of professional services to its clients, including system design, product integration, project logistics and programming assistance. In recent years, whilst the company has played its part in supplying and delivering many large-scale, blue-chip AV projects, it has continued to monitor the blurring of the lines between where and how new technologies are applied, and added numerous cutting-edge brands to its already extensive range. 

Demand for innovative solutions in the custom install market has probably never been stronger.
