AV3, Inc. is solely dedicated to AV and keeping its staff trained in industry standards and products.

Our experience with the Intelligence Community and Rapid Prototyping organization audio visual installations, enables us to produce systems rapidly and cost-effectively.  Having the engineers, programmers, and technicians under one company allows for the installation process to be most efficient. AV3, Inc. has a Top Secret Facility with Storage where systems are built and programming is tested prior to installation. In-lab testing allows for minimal down time for the end user during installation. Technicians, programmers, and engineers are able to troubleshoot and test systems in lab as a team prior to getting on-site.
