Frequency Audio-Visual Services started installing sound systems in bars and nightclubs in the year 2000 and we soon discovered our strength was in finding unique solutions to complicated audio problems. Our clients had limited budgets, challenging acoustic spaces and aesthetic constraints. We started designing unconventional systems that utilized the latest technology and creative installation approaches, and soon we became a design leader in Chicago. As our client base expanded, so did their needs for complete AV services. We added video products to our portfolio in 2004 and complete system integration when we incorporated in the fall of 2005.
Always Striving for Improvement
Over the years, we have continued to push the envelope of Audio-Visual equipment types and installation techniques. We are an A-rated member of the Better Business Bureau and our staff is trained and certified to install, program and service a wide variety of industry leading products from manufacturers such as Crestron, Lutron and Polycom.
Designing the Future
Technology never stops inventing and improving, and neither do we. We were among the first to push for a reduction in required conduit sizing for A/V cables, drastically lowering construction costs related to Audio-Visual scopes. We aggressively design systems distributed over Cat5/6 cabling to further reduce construction costs and we create systems that are firmly planted in the latest technology while still com-patible with industry standards and legacy equipment.
What makes our Audio-Visual Systems so amazing is their simplicity. The systems themselves, however, aren’t necessarily very simple – the end user’s experience is. When we design a system, we don’t approach it from the perspective of the finished project. We design from a perspective of “A System In Use”. It’s not important that the Designer or the Installer can operate the system, it’s important that ANY user can; right away, 6 months or 5 years down the line.
Can the manager or “in house” staff easily operate the equipment and troubleshoot problems or specialized uses? Can the system be easily and economically serviced, by any Audio-Visual Technician? Is the installed system not only aesthetically pleasing, but also user friendly? Can the system be expanded in the future, without adding significant additional construction costs? These are the questions we ask and answer before putting our name on a system.
It’s the little things, the things that seamlessly weave themselves into the fabric of your day, that truly do matter. When design does not work, it’s noticeable. It interferes. But when design is done right, its true beauty lies in its transparency— noticing nothing at all. Frequency Audio-Visual Services always has this goal in mind when planning, executing and maintaining your audio integration solutions. We design for those who aren’t always quite as excited about technology as we are. And you don’t have to be excited about our Audio-Visual installation… in fact, we prefer it if you barely notice them.
Frequency Audio-Visual Services is a company built almost exclusively on word of mouth. Our customers are always satisfied and return to us time and again with new projects. We are highly recommended by some of the top Architects, General Contractors and Electricians in Chicagoland because of how seamlessly we work within their budgets and timelines to help them make their customers even happier. And we hope that you’ll join this network of happily satisfied, productive and profitable Frequency Audio-Visual Clients. We look forward to doing business with you!
