Performance Venues

Performance Venue Audio, Video, Lighting Design & Build Services

At a performance venue, anything can happen, from tears to laughter. The way audiences respond, however, comes from more than the performances — it also comes from the ambiance of the room. The sound. The visuals. The lighting. It all culminates in an immersive experience that leaves viewers enchanted, which is why a performance venue’s design is so influential.

Our AVL Services for Performance Venues

Integrated Illumination creates atmosphere and ambiance at a concert, play or other live performance through audio, lighting and video design and installation. Whether you’re refreshing the AVL for a concert venue or performance center, learn more about how our services can help.


What is a concert if the audience can’t hear the band or the vocals sound muddled? Whether at an indoor or outdoor concert venue, the audience needs to be able to hear — and sing along with — their favorite songs. 

The same is true of a play or spoken word performance. People need to hear the actors, and even for those performers with the biggest voices, that’s not always possible without technological assistance. Our audio services ensure the music and vocals are always clear and crisp, no matter where in the audience someone is sitting or standing.

A well-designed audio system also allows you to record performances and concerts for your venue’s archives or to sell later on.


Video projection screens let everyone see the performers up close and personal, even if they’re sitting in the nosebleed seats or near the back. Videos can also add a special touch to a live performance or concert, making the event more memorable.

Adding video features to your performance center allows you to give the acts you book a little something extra. Illuminated Integration offers a wide range of video installation and design services. We have more than 10 types of video components, including video and LED walls, projectors and livestreaming. We’ll work with you to help you choose the best services for your space.


Lighting is a critical component of AVL for outdoor venues, theaters and concert halls. The audience needs to see the performers or band on stage. Lighting can also transform a ho-hum performance into a breathtaking, awe-inspiring spectacle. Our theatrical lighting services are customized for each of our clients. We consider your venue’s size and layout when recommending systems and designs.

The Value of Quality AVL Design for pERFORMANCE Spaces

The investment of a quality AVL design for theaters and other performance spaces lends itself to several benefits, including:

  • Enticing Popular Performers: For any venue, it’s a priority to feature a slate of in-demand performers, as it encourages ticket sales. With a quality AVL system, your center can cater to an acting troupe’s, musician’s, dancing group’s or comedian’s performance needs, such as preferred lighting arrangements, and book them for select dates. With an experienced team of consultants from the theatrical area, Illuminated Integration can help you design the system you’re after.
  • Engaging Various Audiences: Everyone features different tastes, from comedy to drama. That’s why many performance venues switch up their offerings, hosting comedians one week and a theater company the next. To do that, however, you need an AVL system that can create the appropriate atmosphere for a night of comedy, dramedy, sing-alongs and more. That’s where our talented theater consultants come into the picture.
  • Enhancing Viewing Experiences: A signature difference between a run-of-the-mill design for a performance venue and a one-of-a-kind AVL design is its impact on the viewer experience. A lot of the time, your recycled plan will fall short, because it’s for another space. In comparison, a custom design for your theater space creates an immersive experience that lets audiences embrace their evening out.


For many of our team members, their careers and passion for AVL began with the theater — and it shows in their designs. It’s also represented by their “can-do” attitude, as we’re always ready to embrace complex, detailed projects of all sizes. You can count on the Illuminated Integration team to value your opinion and deliver a design you’ll love.

For example, we worked on a refresh of the Carousel Pavilion at Hersheypark. The park wanted to maintain some of the pavilion’s traditional aesthetic while modernizing its functions and controls. The Pavilion is the central gathering place at the park and serves as the site for performances and character meet-and-greets. Our updates included color-changing lights and individual controls. Endless lighting designs and animations are possible with the update. Park visitors can enjoy daily performances and seasonal spectaculars and animations.

I am the Technical Director at Saint John Vianney High School in Holmdel, NJ.

Tyler and Mike from Illuminated did a superlative job with our Frederico Theater. They started the project soon after signing the contract, they met every deadline, they had no change orders, they communicated clearly and often and their training sessions were superb. We could not have asked for a better partner for Holy Ghost Prep’s Frederico Theater.

At Dorney Park we have a 200’ tall attraction that had an antiquated lighting system. It was inefficient, and static color changes would consume a large amount of time from our team. Illuminated Integration proposed a solution utilizing technology from SGM Lighting for our attraction. The tower is not only much brighter than before, but now it […]
