Thank You Boar’s Head!

Monday, June 27th, 2011

As the 4th of July approaches we’re still busy doing audio visual installation projects all over Charlottesville!

This week, we would like to thank The Boar’s Head for choosing us to install new sound systems for the Spa, Old Mill Room Restaurant, the Bistro, and the reception area.  We partnered with Bose Professional on the equipment and DMX to provide a music subscription that is perfect for each space.  The next time you’re there, be sure to take a listen!

In addition to this project, we also spend a lot of time at The Boar’s Head each day as we are the preferred audio visual and lighting provider for conferences and events that take place on the property.

Thank You Boar’s Head for choosing The AV Company for all of your audio visual needs!

DMX On-Site Music Dealer

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

We are excited to announce that The AV Company is a dealer for DMX on-site music!  We can now provide a music subscription for your business that will keep your customers coming back AND the licensing is all taken care of for you! Check out some sample playlists here.

Here is an overview of this great new service from the DMX website.  If you’re interested in more information please CONTACT US.

DMX On-Site

Many businesses rely on CDs, mp3 playlists or satellite radio. But, playing DJ takes time away from your day. Employees tend to play what they like, not what’s right for your business. And radio, while fine for listening, isn’t designed specifically for business use. If you’re going to have music for your business, make it work for you. Make it DMX Music.

Stay focused on your business.

Let us handle the music for your business – from meticulous song selection to all aspects of daily management including delivery, updating and licensing requirements.

Be experienced

Let customers actually experience your brand with highly customized in-store sonic solutions that capture the personality of your brand or business.

Control your environment

Ensure your customer experience is consistent from visit to visit and your music meets your goals.

Make an impression.

DMX Music not only enhances today’s visit but connects on an emotional level to create positive associations and lasting customer bonds.

Influence behavior

Clear tables faster. Get customers to linger longer. Make time fly. Excite, sooth or move. It’s not magic. It’s the power of music.

Keep it legal

Relax. DMX handles all required music licensing through thousands of relationships with critical industry players, including labels, performing rights organizations (ASCAP, BMI and SoundExchange) and publishers.

•     Expanded furniture rental inventory for events and conferences
•    Our technicians received over 14 certifications in 2010 from leading industry manufacturers and institutes in 2010

Small Speakers. Big Sound.

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Picture This: You’re at a wedding ceremony or conference for work where you can hear perfectly  AND there is no large speaker blocking your view of the bride or presenter. Doesn’t happen very often does it?  Well, our featured product this week makes it very possible.  Meet the Bose L1 which is available for rental from The AV Company.

Believe it or not, the small speaker you see below is a unique, all-in-one system that delivers clear, powerful sound throughout small and medium-sized venues for up to 500 people.  Because it’s made by Bose, the sound is even no matter where you are in the room and it eliminates the need for conventions monitors, mixers and PA systems in most cases. 

Contact us today to reserve the Bose L1 for your wedding, event or conference!

“I Do!” “You what? I can’t hear you…”

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Have you ever been to a wedding ceremony where you couldn’t hear the officiant, much less the bride & groom’s vows?

We have a solution for that. Our sound package includes very discreet Bose Professional speakers (they don’t stand out in photos!) with a wireless microphone for the celebrant & readers and a technician on hand to provide you peace of mind as you walk down the aisle. CD and iPod upgrades are also available if you plan to have recorded music as part of your ceremony.


Our discreet BOSE speakers sound great but disappear in photos of your wedding ceremony.
