Projector Installation Checklist

Audio Performance

All audio performance tests are made from all electronic system inputs (first physical output of source media, all I/O plates, Mike inputs) to all electronic system outputs (all outputs connected to amplifier inputs, all connections to external facilities to other rooms), buildings or external services such as broadcast connections.

AP – 115: Physical Loudspeaker Alignment

Verify that loudspeakers are placed and aimed as defined in the project documentation.

AP – 117: Loudspeaker Polarity

Verify that all loudspeakers are tested to ensure they all have correct polarity as defined in the project documentation.

AP – 126: Audio Buzz and Rattles

Verify that no audible noise caused by improper installation of any equipment provided in completed system is evident. Perform buzzes and rattles test, monitoring for both direct, or indirect, unintended noise generated as a result of the AV system operating within its design parameters in the room environment. Noise that may be present as a result of non-AV system related sources (for example: air handler rattles due to excessive volume of air through it is not in scope with this verification.

AP – 133: Test Audio Routes

Verify that all audio routes are tested from endpoint to endpoint via the appropriate midpoints for operation and routing as defined in the project documentation.

Video performance

All video performance tests are made from all electronic systems inputs (first physical output of source media, all I/O plates) to all electronic system outputs (all outputs connected to display inputs, all connections to external facilities (to other rooms, buildings or external services such as broadcast connections).

Verify that the system should conform to the appropriate viewing category as defined in the project documentation and/or as verified by and ANSI/InfoComm 3M – 2011, documented project specific requirements will supersede ANSI/InfoComm 3M – 2011, however it is strongly recommended that the testing methodology from ANSI/InfoComm 3M – 2011 Be utilized. The projected image contrast ratio should be measured for all project images within the system.

VP – 108: Multiple Resolution Performance of Video Displays

Verify that the system Displays all resolutions required by project documentation on all displays within the system. Consideration should be given to maximum resolution and aspect ratio of each display to ensure that the anticipated resolutions are within display tolerances of the display devices. Any variation other than accurate display of resolution should be documented in the test report such as pixel shift, geometric distortion, artifacts from scaling, letterboxing, pillarboxing, window boxing, or similar distortion of the image.

Verify that terminations are appropriate for application with correct pin configuration and connection to equipment with a minimum of adapters.

CABL – 105: AV Connector Seating

Verify that all connectors are correctly keyed, seeded, and latched to respective connection points as defined in the project documentation. Conditions where physical parameters exceed the connectors ability to maintain full seating should be resolved as defined in the project documentation.

CABL – 109: AV Connector Plate Consistent Labeling

Verify that AV connector plates have consistent labeling throughout the project as defined in the project documentation. Verify that all connector plates are given unique identifiers and that this identifier is used as defined in the project documentation. Verify connector plate labeling is consistent with control surfaces.NOTE: Unique identifier should be permanently marked on finished plates unless there are aesthetic reasons not to.

CABL – 111: Cable separation

Verify that both site and rack cables have appropriate separation according to signal type and level as defined in the project documentation.

CABL – 114: Termination Stress
