Blackdove Helps
Dealers Get Design
Savvy with Digital Art
Art Server, Digital Canvas and
management app assist integrators in
delivering purpose-built, large-scale
systems that fill today's increasing
design and wellness requests.
By Arlen Schweiger
AS INTERIOR DESIGN and
aesthetics continue to play
a greater part in custom integration
projects, digital art
provider/curator Blackdove
has launched a portfolio of
solutions to assist dealers.
The company is among the
handful that have pushed
digital art for the custom
channel since debuting at
CEDIA Expo a few years
back, and the category has
been among the growing
opportunities in design and
wellness. Potential installs
are being spurred by today's
array of aesthetic-minded
displays and versatile technologies
such as OLED and
short-throw projection.
Blackdove's system is
composed of a hardware
media player, purpose-built
displays, a control and management
app, and a digital
artwork subscription service.
Furthermore, Blackdove
says its system can instantly
serve up any work of digital

art to any display in the
world, with NFT blockchain
registration and end-to-end
encryption, the company
notes of its modern and
secure offering.
In terms of integration,
Blackdove says it has established
partnerships with
popular third-party control
providers like Crestron,
Savant and Control4.
After a dealer specifies a
project, Blackdove's art advisors
can work directly with
the client, design partners,
or client representative to
choose the proper digital art
at no additional cost to the
dealer or client, the company
explains.
Florida-based AHT Global
is one integrator having
success with it. " We recently
undertook a major upgrade
for a client in Miami, which
included adding Blackdove
and updating Crestron. The
installation was seamless and
quick. Blackdove worked
The Blackdove solution includes a digital artwork subscription
service the company says can feed to any display
instantly.
with our client to select
video art that greatly appeals
to him. This is yet another
highly successful client install
with Blackdove and we look
forward to many more. "
The Blackdove Art Server,
pre-loaded with the company's
software, allows any
display to connect to the
Blackdove digital art gallery.
The slim device can be
installed in a rack or behind
a screen and connects to the
Blackdove cloud via Ethernet
or Wi-Fi.
The Art Server has a single
4K 60Hz HDMI output,
and an SSD drive for locally
caching client art collections,
Blackdove says. For largescale
applications, The company
can create customized
Art Servers with resolutions
up to 26K.
For purpose-built digital
artwork projects, integrators
may opt for a Blackdove
Digital Canvas, a high-definition
commercial display
screen with integrated Art
Server. Available up to 98
inches, the Digital Canvas
is designed for continuous
operation and can mount in
portrait or landscape orientation,
the company says.
Installing the Art Server or
Digital Canvas typically takes
15 minutes or less, according
to the company. Blackdove's
remote integration team
is available to log in and
support the onsite dealer to
complete the system configuration
if required.
" For our sixth install with
Blackdove, we used a Blackdove
Art Server to deliver
video art via Savant's VOIP to
multiple displays throughout
a client's penthouse, including
the B&O Harmony and
Samsung Frame, " reports Ken
Johnson, owner of Premiere
Systems. " The client gave
us rave reviews about how
much he and his guests enjoy
seeing art across the screens
in his residence. "
