Project Description

Audio Video Specialists (AVS) has served the Jackson Hole, WY market since 1998.  AVS was founded by industry enthusiasts, and we love what we do. We take pride in our work and we treat every system we design, install, and program as if it were our own.

Our collective background is diverse – including such avocations as hi-end car audio installation, DJ-ing, professional photography and music production. In addition to the varied skills and experience each of us brings to the table from past pursuits, we have been professionally trained in every aspect of the various jobs we perform here at AVS. From certified programming to consumer electronics courses, we are always advancing our education.

Our individual skills and abilities notwithstanding, it’s the passion we share for the work we do that is at the core of AVS’ enduring success as a company.  We know excellence when we hear it and see it, and we never settle for anything less.

AVS was contacted by the client’s home builder to design and install the electronics and associated items in a small dedicated theater room.  The client wanted a large screen with surround sound to create an experience similar to a movie theater.  AVS has worked on a number of dedicated media rooms over the years, and we began designing this to meet the client’s expectations and budget.  Sonance Cinema in-wall/in-ceiling solutions were chosen as the theater speaker system, and a combination of a Wolf SDC-12 4K imaging projector and a Stewart fixed screen comprised the video elements.  Amplification would come from a 7-channel Krell amp, while audio processing would be handled by an Integra processor.  A hand-held Control4 remote and processor would serve for the client’s system interface.  The entire system, plus LED lighting and more can be controlled by the remote, or one of the dedicated Control4 touch screens.  AVS installed keypads on the entry wall to allow one-touch “system and lighting on” and one-touch “all off” activities.  AVS had all controllable dimmers moved to the rack room (located next to the media room), to give the media room walls a clean and uncluttered look.

The prewire was completed in under a week, and the installation, programming and calibration took another week once the room was prepared by the builder.  A walk-through was scheduled with the clients to go over the installation and how to use the system.  We featured the opening scene of Ironman to demo this exciting new system to our clients.  After pausing the demo disc, our clients commented that the picture quality and sound was “jaw dropping”.  They were very impressed with how clean the install was, and how easy the system is to operate.
