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.
Symco Technology Showcases: How to Provide User Experience Defined AV
As the conversation about the pending demise of custom solutions and control system programming becomes louder, the focus on user experience is trending on an upward path. User experience has become a critical part of differentiating products and solutions throughout all of the business world, modern technology, and naturally the AV industry. Ironically, custom solutions and programming plays an important part in delivering many desirable user experiences.
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?
Making Technology and the AV Industry Accessible
Control Concepts, whose main focus is AV control system programming and software development, has brought a lot to the industry including expert knowledge, industry-known modules, drivers, and middleware, as well as a diverse team whose skill sets has get reach across the industry. However, Control Concepts doesn’t limit itself to hiring only those who are industry qualified. I know this from firsthand experience. When I was hired in November of 2018, I came to Control Concepts with no industry background whatsoever.
