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.
Are You Making the Most of Your Time?
Are you making the most of your time? How often do you find yourself struggling to keep up with demands, racing around to get things done, and longing for some time to catch your breath in order to focus on what you want or need to do? If you are like me, it describes the day-to-day existence.
We live for the adrenaline rush of fast paced activity, the serotonin of feeling needed, the dopamine of accomplishing a goal, and the endorphins from doing something that you enjoy. These hormones fuel sustained activity, focus, and productivity at work and in daily life.
However, during quieter times, it is becomes increasingly difficult to harness these feeling and behaviors without significant discipline and self-motivation. Unfortunately, human behavior kicks in and the lack of internal chemicals and responses fueling our addiction makes it harder to get things done.
Silver Linings in a Pandemic
Are there really silver linings in a pandemic? While we adapt to the new normal of social distancing, working from home, and shelter in place, fears abound about health, safety, and finances as do frustrations about isolation, schedule disruptions, and uncertainty. It proves to be a very difficult time to be optimistic and have a positive outlook under the circumstances; however, with some squinting silver linings can be found.
The Hidden Value of Being in the AV Industry
Before working at Control Concepts, when [Elizabeth Scozzari] used to tell people that I worked in Scouting I usually got one of two responses: “can you help my kid make Eagle?” and “can you get me a mixed tin of popcorn?” When I worked at a law firm prior, people wanted to know if I could give them legal advice, or “just ask one of your attorney friends.” Now when I tell people I’m in the AV industry most of them cock their head to the side, smile and say “that’s interesting,” having no real idea of what the AV industry is, what Control Concepts offers, or what, as an Executive Assistant, I do[…] But over the past five months I have realized that what we do at Control Concepts and within the AV industry applies to life outside of work.
Uncovering the Why Behind HMTL5 in AV Control
As more AV manufacturers embrace the transition from proprietary programming languages and software development tools to open standards for control system solutions, there is a growing trend to adopt HTML5 for user interface design.
This move to HTML5 is not just another way to make the AV industry more appealing to outsiders or address the growing need for talent. Rather, there are very relevant and time sensitive impetuses that drive this significant shift.
