Design

Whether it’s evaluating an existing system, conducting a needs analysis with an end user, or working with architects and owners to coordinate requirements for a new space, Sound + Video Works can provide valuable expertise and guidance for any audiovisual system design. Our team of engineers brings creativity, experience, and precision to system designs in performance venues, sports facilities, corporate spaces, higher education, and more.

 


CAD Mounting DetailDrafting

Our expertise in drafting goes beyond block and line signal flow drawings. With an in-depth understanding of AutoCAD, our engineers can provide development assistance with dynamic block libraries, scripting in Visual Basic, Lisp, and ObjectARX. We work in 2D and 3D, and we can generate a complete, buildable set of shop drawings for the most complex of sound and video systems.

 


CoordinationCoordination

From project inception to completion, Sound + Video Works’ engineers will coordinate with other trades and stakeholders to ensure that your AV system goes in without a hitch. We understand that communication and foresight are key to preventing impacts to cost and schedule. Let our proven experience in complex, high-profile projects help save you time and money.

 


System Testing

Testing

Nobody’s perfect, but on opening day, your system had better be. Our engineers can help develop and execute a testing procedure that will guarantee your system is 100% functional when the curtain goes up. We will methodically check every element of the system from microphone to speaker, camera to display, using industry accepted testing procedures and equipment. All of our test results will be fully documented, so you can rest assured that the show will go on without a hitch.

The best sound and video equipment in the world is only as good as the system that drives it. That’s why it is vital that systems are set up correctly prior to first use. After ensuring that all equipment is communicating, labeled properly, and all software is up to date, Sound + Video Engineers can dial in adjustments such as gain structure, EQ, and color calibration to ensure that your system is operating at its best.
