Problems We Solve
At Control Concepts we go to great lengths to accommodate our clients.
Here are solutions to common problems brought to us by each market.
AV Software and Solutions
We partner with Technology Managers, Consultants, System Integrators, and Manufacturers to design and deliver a full spectrum of AV software and solutions.
We offer an array of control system programming services as well as management & maintenance once your AV systems are installed.
It’s not enough to simply provide a user with basic functionality using typical features and still call that a custom integrated system.
By working with us, you gain more customizable development, more timely response, more control over your end product.
For manufacturers, we look to provide module development and middleware development
With specialty services from Control Concepts like systems engineering, audio DSP programming, and field commissioning, we empower you to deliver more.
Technology managers, consultants, and integrators should consider the value of hiring a third party to commission their systems to identify open items and ensure performance standards are met.
As part of our specialty engineering services, Control Concepts offers AV strategic planning to its technology partners.
How Everyone is Connected Through User Experience
User experience (UX) is quite the buzz word these days in the AV industry. User experience not only describes the seamless operation of an AV system addressing needs and pain points of users, it also captures the emotion a user feels when utilizing the space and interacting with technology. User experience is built upon a user interface that is inviting, modern, consistent, reliable, and easy to operate. However, user experience also takes into consideration the entire process that a user undergoes when working with technology, appreciating the finer details of the installation and room aesthetics, and feeling of comfort in the environment. Care, consideration, high quality, and attention to detail are the underlying factors that contribute to the feel that a quality user experience embodies.
Why it is Important to Attend InfoComm?
When Control Concepts started in March of 1997, one the first priorities was to become an ICIA member (then InfoComm, now AVIXA) and head to LA in June for InfoComm. Since that initial event, there has been no looking back. InfoComm has been a staple on our company calendar. Including a day visit in Philadelphia in 2018, this year’s event marks my 24 consecutive InfoComm trade show.
The Importance of Introducing Young People to the AV Industry
While attending several AV industry events this year, I have been witness to some consistent remarks that particularly resonated with me. All were constructive in their intent, yet the associated emotion ranged the gamut of curiosity, concern, and alarm. Each of these instances stemmed from a basic realization that there were no new faces in the room and the average age in the industry is increasing rather than decreasing each year.
Simply put, where are the young people in the AV industry?
