AV Consultancy and Systems Integration

Lecture theatre with full AV installation

We offer a professional audio visual AV consultancy service from system design and specification through to systems integration and project management.

Rather than go direct to an AV installation company for both design and installation, using our services we will ensure you receive completely independent advice on the very latest solutions available. We will draw up a detailed specification and drawings to go out to tender and co-ordinate this with all the other services ensuring the best possible installation at the lowest possible price with the minimum of fuss.

We will ensure screen sizes are optimised for the size of room, seating layout and type of presentation and design an audio system to cover the seating area with even sound levels and intelligible sound. All aspects of the space will be considered to include access, electrical systems and structured cabling.

We can also provide system design and consultancy for CAVE automatic virtual environment solutions. These are virtual environments in which the person is fully immersed within it using images that are displayed by a series of projectors. A typical system consists of music and video played via rear projection walls, down projection onto the floor, various loudspeakers at different positions around the space with tracking sensors in the walls. Some systems also have haptic feedback which take the form of vibrations or other forms of movement felt by the user which contribute to the experience.

Audio Visual systems have become extremely sophisticated in recent years making the task of integrating these systems into the building even more complex. We believe in a truly collaborative approach working with the key users and stakeholders to develop a detailed brief for the AV systems which we will co-ordinate with the architects, designers and other members of the design team. Our aim is to ensure any audio visual system is  fully optimised and integrated into the building and installed on time and within budget.

Our project management and systems integration team will monitor the works from start to finish ensuring the specification meets the client brief, checking the progress of main contract works to ensure containment is installed correctly and power supplies are in the right place. Once the specialist audio visual contractors are on site we will hold regular site meetings to monitor their work and check progress, carrying out our own independent testing and commissioning on completion.

Whether your audio visual requirements are for the design of a new boardroom, lecture theatre, office or classroom, a simple plasma screen or projector in a conference room or a fully immersive video conferencing system, Drama by Design can provide the solution.
