AV Planners is a full-service audio-visual and technology systems integrator serving business, education and other verticals. With over five decades of combined industry experience, we can answer organizations’ most complex problems and technical challenges. Our manufacturer partners enable us to offer cutting-edge technology that combines quality, performance and a simplified user experience.

We take pride in providing reliable AV systems, which is why we carefully select our manufacturer partners. When choosing a manufacturer partner, we evaluate the following: 

  • Reliability - As a technology solutions provider, we provide our clients with technology solutions that we can trust. We evaluate the probability that the product, or system, will perform its intended function for an extended period while operating under various environmental conditions. 
  • Security - We select manufacturers with application and infrastructure security to protect organizations from cyber attacks. We evaluate common security technologies, such as data loss prevention, security incident and event management, firewall and antivirus, to ensure our clients have the safest technology.  
  • Innovation - We select manufacturers that are on the cutting edge of new technologies and services. Through innovation, we are able to simplify complex processes to provide robust, intelligent solutions for efficient, enhanced workflows and effective communication. 
  • Industry Standards - AVIXA, the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association, is the leading resource for AV standards. These standards support technology design and procedures that focus on reliability, competency and success. We prioritize manufacturers that develop technology within AVIXA’s standards. 
  • Cost-Effectiveness - We provide a tailored, personalized approach for each of our clients to create a custom system within a client's budget. We evaluate different manufacturers to determine the cost-effectiveness of the solutions available. 
  • Customer Support - As technology has evolved, end users have opted into managed services programs with service level agreements (SLAs) from integrators to ensure their equipment is performing seamlessly. We want to ensure our end users have access to personalized customer support through our manufacturer partners. 

By integrating cutting-edge technology from our manufacturer partners, we can provide our clients, the end user, with advanced, reliable technology solutions. We specialize in providing audio/video solutions, acoustic treatments, control systems, digital signage, networking and WiFi solutions, management services, security, structured cabling, unified collaboration and much more. We can design an entire AV project, recommending the solutions that are best suited for the application and environment. 

We are proud to partner with the industry's leading brands, including Zoom Video Communication, QSC, Crestron and many others. Visit our partner page to learn more.
