CCS Presentation Systems
Steps to Improving Audio Visual Capabilities
Businesses across industries, educational institutions, government entities, and courts of law, among others benefit immensely from audio visual (AV) equipment, systems, and integration. The Pro AV industry has increased in options and capabilities over the past five years, rendering some systems obsolete. Products have been developed that provide opportunities for interactive communication among different locations, engagement of students and lecturers, and control of several systems and screens simultaneously. It may be time to consider taking steps to improve the audio visual capabilities.
The first step is to find an experienced company that can provide comprehensive services. That saves time, money, and problems with integration of equipment. It also ensures that every component will accommodate the space, the primary use, and the goals for the project. There are many companies that can provide products, install them, and maintain systems, but not all can design, engineer, customize and build systems from the ground up. The advantages of having a new system created are well worth the time and effort it takes from the initial consultation to full completion. The system will suit unique needs, fit specific budgetary constraints, provide innovative solutions to challenges or problems, and set businesses and entities above competitors.
National companies that provide comprehensive services, like CCS Presentation Systems, for example, are experts in the field. They offer project management services to coordinate stages of the project, and will work with architects, IT staff, consultants, corporate management, developers, builders, and facility managers to make the new system perfect. Another advantage to utilizing a national company is that they provide thousands of products from which to choose. Hundreds of manufacturers are represented including SMART, Crestron, NEC, and Epson, among others. Volume business means products are at lower pricing, which helps control costs.
In order to provide personalized services, large companies typically have regional offices and branches to serve customers. CCS New England, for example, is located right outside of Boston, and serves the entire area. The process begins with an initial consultation to determine needs, goals, purposes, and budget. From that point, designers and engineers craft a system to complete desired tasks, fit available space, and increase capabilities. Drawings are submitted for approval, options are discussed, and assistance with product selection takes place. Next steps include installation be factory trained professionals and integration of systems by expert technicians. The success of previous CCS Projects resulted in the company being named the top AV Integrators in the country in 2024 by Commercial Integrators Magazine. Investing in AV capabilities is an investment in the future of the business so do not settle for ordinary, off-the-shelf systems.
