Threshold consultants approach the visual realm of architecture to reinforce the subtlety, power, and delight that sound can bring to the built environment. Our Audio/Video team delivers quality and clarity of sound and video for places of gathering where we learn, share wisdom, and pass along culture. We work alongside designers, artists, and administrators to deliver designs that address the needs of end users in the Performing Arts, Cultural, Educational, Worship, and Commercial realm.
Thoughtful spaces require flexible Audio/Video systems that help them succeed as both rooms and venues, for presentation and conversation, as places for in-person presentation of ideas as well as their distribution and collaboration at a distance. Audio and video technologies that were once confined to the world of performance venues are now pervasive in our everyday lives. Whether the technology itself is part of the show or subordinated to an immersive experience, the quality and clarity of sound and video remains paramount. We seek the highest quality of experience that delivers power, fidelity, and nuance for the everyday and the once-in-a-lifetime.
