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.
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.

The Essentiality of Support in Business Relationships
As the world continues to recover from the impact of the pandemic, individuals, businesses, and their clients are leaning on supportive relationships and genuine insight to regain their confidence and comfort. More than ever people are weighing a company’s values, customer service, dedication, and care before making a commitment.
The days of alluring clients in the AV industry with catchy marketing and flashy products are in the past. Everyone wants to know that if something goes awry the companies and products they have invested in will have their backs. Before this differentiator can be client facing, it must start at home.
Future-proofing Programming Starts with Architecting Device Control
How often does an AV system get designed, commissioned, and programmed, and then never touched again? The answer is: Not often!
AV systems must be adaptable to meet users’ changing needs. Starting with a “simple” design that meets current requirements, while keeping in mind the potential for future growth, always sounds like an effective strategy. But how often is future-proofing truly considered in today’s system design and programming?
