How to Combine / Uncombine rooms

Where a room is partitioned by folding walls, users can choose to combine two adjacent rooms into one larger space simply by opening the walls.

Flexibility and multi-functionality are enhanced when rooms can be combined in various shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, the complexity of room combining increases with the need for more and more AV devices and connectivity.

Biamp supports two ways of managing how the AV equipment of the rooms can be combined.

  • Dedicated buttons on a keypad / Touch Panel
  • Input from a switch built into the folding wall. 
Dedicated button(s) on a control panel

On a keypad or using Touch Panels, you can dedicate some buttons for controlling the combine/uncombined feature.

Folding Wall switch

When the folding walls are open, all AV devices – including functions such as audio volume and lighting – are shared throughout the combined rooms speakers and displays from one central location. When the walls are closed, each room has a completely independent AV functionality.

Button behavior

Then buttons can change behavior based on, if in the combined use-case or separated.

Quick configuration time

Previously, it could take hours of programming when doing a combined room project for an AV system. But by implementing Combined Room Support in Project Designer 1.9 and newer, the function is simple to create and use.

Have a look at the video below, how you can easily configure 2 rooms that can be combined into 1 large room.
