Room design

AV services is happy to assist with room design and equipment recommendations.  There are no charges for these services and we often can provide control system programming or basic installation depending on the complexity of your project and staff availability. 
There are a number of principles that we design our rooms by but our primary desire is to make the room functional for all users with the usage and size of the space in mind.  We will primarily recommend items that are enterprise grade (Designed with heavy usage and consistent performance in mind).  These items often come at a higher pricepoint so it helps us to understand your overall goals for the space and your budget as we can sometimes design a room to be gradually upgraded over the course of a few years.  Please contact the service center to put in a request to have someone from our team contact you.
