AUDIO & AV CONSULTANCY
Technical Consultancy Services - An Overview
As well as providing consultancy as part of our ‘end to end’ solution of design, supply, install and support, Crossover also delivers standalone strategic consultancy. Our experience means we are expertly placed to offer feasibility studies, ROI assessments, project management and technical solution consultancy services.
All quality consultancy starts with the identification of the requirements – we are extremely rigorous and expert in this process. We see this as a collaborative exercise, fully investing in discussing, probing and explaining to establish the real business need. From the outset we bring our considerable technical know how and experience to the discussion, as well as our hard-won knowledge of current and future audio and AV and IT trends. When designing systems, our designs and our tender specification documents reflect our deep understanding of fixed installation of audio and AV systems within the commercial sector and our focus on providing real value for money.
Because our business is not just pure consultancy alone we have huge real-world experience through our work in supplying, installing, and supporting hundreds of projects a year, hence our clients benefit from our considerable practical experience and our constantly-updated product knowledge.
Audio Systems Consultancy
The Crossover team can provide an audio systems consultancy service, utilising systems design and installation knowledge gained over decades working across a range of commercial premises and within industry verticals.
We can specify best practises for everything from cable containment to mains power provision to correctly integrating the audio systems with any AV, IT and building control systems. We can offer advice across the lifespan of an audio system, from feasibility studies, to full design specifications, to tweaking or upgrading existing equipment and guidance on maintenance schedules.
AV Systems Consultancy
Development of new technologies in the AV field moves at a rapid pace. Organisations are constantly adopting powerful audiovisual technologies to make a real difference to the way they communicate and collaborate, both internally and with their clients and customers. As the landscape changes, Crossover can provide the specialist knowledge you need to stay abreast of commercial norms; to be confident that you’re taking advantage of the most appropriate available equipment and that your systems are as future ready as possible.
Customer feedback highlights Crossover’s thoroughness during the early stages of the AV consultancy process as a highly valued strength. Our skills in researching and explaining options for a new install or to fit into an existing AV / IT infrastructure, mean you can be sure of compatibility, connectivity and that you’re in the best position possible once the next generation of technologies arrives.
Integrating AV and IT
Crossover have long-since embraced the convergence of AV and IT and are specialists in the kind of systems integration that keeps our clients’ future needs firmly in mind, enhances data security, and allows your staff to benefit from the full integration of our systems with the IT, telephony and buildings management systems used by your organisation.
As technology enables the AV and IT infrastructure to integrate ever more tightly, there are many advantages for your business, as well as potential headaches for your IT department with a poorly integrated or delivered AV solution. At Crossover we’re constantly working with our client’s IT staff to implement the latest AV technologies in new or existing IT network frameworks in a non-disruptive fashion, both during installation and throughout the life cycle of the AV system and to make the most of the exciting new opportunities for your business.
Crossover offers specialist consultancy in acoustics and audio systems. We help architects, developers and owners make spaces sound superb, and control the way sound propagates around as well as outside your building. Let us help you understand how you can improve the acoustics in your existing premises, or during the planning stages of a new build. Our experience can help you avoid costly mistakes and optimise the acoustics and audio performance.
From large spaces such as auditoriums and museums, through to smaller requirements such as a restaurant or a single meeting room, we use our experience to shape great buildings, transform customer experience, set measurable specifications & standards for build contractors to meet, and help our clients to adhere to the most stringent of council restrictions to gain local authority approval.
