How each theater can best create its own unique atmosphere is something our team at Illuminated Integration — experienced in design-build AVL solutions — knows a good deal about. Here are some insights as they apply to AVL design and its ability to help generate a truly immersive performance venue.
Unfortunately, in an attempt to cut corners, some theaters go with generic, recycled AVL designs. Yet all too often, the results of using these one-size-fits-all solutions are noticeably underwhelming levels of performance. The main reason for this is that these off-the-shelf AVL systems aren’t made to fit a specific theater’s needs. Instead, they’re prepackaged to provide some level of coverage to as many theaters as possible. A generic AVL system is a significant risk that can leave a theater’s stakeholders feeling frustrated and disappointed with the ROI on their investment.
OUR THEATER AVL DESIGN SERVICES
At Illuminated Integration, we work with theaters to create AVL systems that will impress your audience and give them an event to remember. Our theater consultants have experience working with performance venues of all sizes and will provide you with a custom theater space design that includes:
- Theater video systems: With our custom theater video services, you can project the performance on a screen large enough for everyone. We can install camera systems, video screens and the necessary switching equipment you need for seamless transitions. If you would like something more advanced, we can equip your stage with a projection mapping system capable of creating incredible stage visuals.
- Theatrical lighting design: Our theater consultants will look over your venue to design a cohesive lighting arrangement that delivers the right level, tone and color before the performance, during the show and throughout the intermission. We can convert your existing lighting to efficient LED lighting, install house lights and illuminate your stage with performance-dimming LED systems and other upgrades.
- Custom theater audio: Speaker size, quality and arrangement come together to make or break a performance. A custom performance audio system designed by our theater consultants will ensure you can put on the best show and reach your guests with crisp and audible announcements. We install speakers in the ideal configuration and support your design with the latest control and mixing technology from brands like QSC, DANTE, Allen & Heath and Avantis.
