Designing Your Technology System

A successful AV and technology installation requires meticulous planning and collaboration between our integrators and your business proprietors. The following steps outline the initial planning and design process:

Needs Assessment: We begin by asking about your objectives and specific technological needs, and we will pinpoint room quantities, preferred audio and video sources, and unique functionalities.

Infrastructure Analysis: Next, we evaluate your building’s existing infrastructure to gauge its compatibility with the intended AV and smart technology systems. We evaluate electrical capabilities and network frameworks, as well as identify cabling needs to ensure optimal performance.

System Blueprint: We then design the placement strategy for devices, displays, control panels, switches, and any supplementary equipment. The objective is to seamlessly install these components to blend into the environment as best as possible.

The Installation Process

With the plan in place, it’s time to install. This phase includes the following stages:

Wiring and Connectivity: Our technicians meticulously lay the groundwork for wiring and cabling infrastructure, ensuring cables are hidden to reduce clutter.

Equipment Deployment: Installing and positioning audio amplifiers, speakers, video displays, control panels, lighting fixtures, cameras, and other essential equipment to follow the system design.

Testing and Calibration: We conduct thorough testing and calibration to ensure seamless system operation. This involves adjusting audio levels, fine-tuning video displays, and configuring network connectivity as needed.
