Case Study: Temple House, Miami Beach

There are venues that use AV to punch up their event presentations, and then there is The Temple House & United Projection event hall. Depending upon the corporate event or wedding, the bare-bones white interior can be transformed into a rose-bedecked forest, or an endless columned temple, or. well, whatever else their wrap-around AV system can projection map onto the tall walls and high ceiling.

Daniel Davidson is the award-winning manager of the venue and came to AV by an unlikely path. With a degree in genetics from UC Berkeley, he acquired the historic Art Deco synagogue and transformed it into one of the most celebrated event venues in the country.

His vision was to let installed AV define the room for each occasion, understanding that virtual décor can far exceed any other form of ambience design—and change in seconds.

Datapath Fx4s are at the heart of the system, providing the processing power behind the spectacular display canvases, and Davidson is a fan.

He also explained how the Temple House’s unique 14-projector system “provides 360-degree video and still imagery on all walls and the ceiling.”

The software system uses professional-grade mapping and proprietary algorithms to integrate mapping, blending, and content-triggering software, “as well as both a hardware and software component for signal splitting and content distribution,” he said.

“Once the system is properly installed, the client then needs to engage a firm for providing content.” Davidson and his team scoured the globe, traveling to the leading AV tradeshows, looking for the most advanced technology.

“After reviewing all possible options,” he said, “Datapath was the clear winner with the best technology at a very fair price.”

Using this advanced technology, The Temple House can “take our clients to the Eiffel Tower for a French pastry, to the center of the coliseum in Rome for a pasta dish, or underwater to swim alongside tropic fish — all in the course of just minutes,” Davidson concluded. “There is no limit to what we can do.” Learn more by visiting
