The controls behind your AV system are crucial to its operation.
A good control system, properly designed and programmed, will streamline AV system operation, combining large numbers of related steps into a few simple, intuitive buttons or screens. It will literally tie your system together, making it easy to use and maintain. Your AV systems will be used more often, helping your staff be more effective and productive.
Of course as AV systems have become more sophisticated, the requirements for control systems have grown as well. The manufacturers have responded by adding more and more useful features and capabilities.
Crestron control screens, for example, can now include Flash objects, simplifying layouts while improving the user interface. Both AMX and Crestron are including a number of “green” network features to minimize power use while increasing security and eliminating many service issues. Crestron Digital Media simplifies the installation of high-definition systems requiring HDMI cabling.
There’s no doubt that these increasingly sophisticated systems require knowledgeable, highly experienced people to engineer, program and install them properly.System design and programming
ADTECH Systems’ people are among the best in the industry. We have eight programmers on staff factory trained and certified by AMX, Crestron and Extron, and they are certified and experienced in programming the audio and video processors, video conferencing systems and other digital gear that will make up your AV system.
Each of our programmers has more than five years of industry experience. Two are Crestron Certified Master Programmers. Unlike most AV integrators, it’s very rare for ADTECH Systems to outsource to independent programmers. We like to keep every stage of the project in-house, so that we can minimize errors and provide fast, timely service should any issue come up.
Our programming services include:
Control system design
It’s important to note that ADTECH clients always own the source code. We are confident that you will be happy with our work and want to use us for future projects. You are always free to use or not use our services without worrying about hidden issues or extra costs.
How we work with you
ADTECH programming services typically begin with the needs analysis prepared by our engineering staff. We will analyze the AV system and its requirements then prepare a series of drawings illustrating possible control schemes.
At that point we will submit those drawings to our client for feedback, usually sitting down together to describe how the system will work and talk about what they like and do not like about our ideas. This is an important step because the control screens not only have to fit the AV system, but the priorities and working style of the various people who will use the room.
We will normally program the entire system before the equipment is installed, but then go on site to upload and fine-tune our code. We like to have the client involved with the tuning and testing process, and we will make changes based on their feedback.
An AV system is a big investment. Audio visual installation companies need to be reliable, trustworthy and highly skilled if you, their customer, are to get a good return on your investment and a system that works flawlessly every time you have an important presentation, meeting or event.
ADTECH Systems now has over eighty employees and an annual revenue in excess of thirty million dollars, all based in New England -giving us the largest employee and resource base of any AV integrator in this region.
That employee base is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced of any AV integrator anywhere. Our engineers average over ten years of AV industry experience and our programmers over five. Each of our project managers has been with the company for at least 10 years.
