About AVCO Technologies

AVCO Technologies is East Tennessee’s premier resource for state-of-the-art professional Audio Visual presentation, projection and sound reinforcement systems.  For the past eighteen (18) years, we have completed projects offering off-the-shelf single components to complete audio visual (AV) systems design and installation.  Our company may specialize in AV system design and installation, but we are in no way limited to those services. 

Because we are customer-driven, AVCO strives to provide all of the resources necessary to make the AV experience enjoyable and dynamic.  Therefore, our system design and installation venues have grown to include service and maintenance of all AV installations, equipment sales, rentals, and all components and parts necessary to support the thousands of installations of AV systems in the Tennessee Valley.

Our products and system integration solutions often include a mix of various integrated technologies:  audio and sound reinforcement, professional video, telecommunications and telecommunications networks, and computers and computer network technologies.  Our business longevity has allowed us to develop an extensive vendor supply chain with relationships lasting since the inception of AVCO Technologies in 1988.

We provide personal assistance to our customers with the selection, application, training and integration of products and systems from our knowledgeable staff.  Our designers analyze the needs of a client, suggest several design paths to consider, provide demonstrations and site visits to similar installations, address the requirements for the system and ultimately provide a well documented and straightforward scope of work for the project.  Should AVCO and the client enter into an installation contract (after the design phase), AVCO field service representatives install and test the system assuring customer satisfaction.

  "Our guarantee is that when we have specified a product or system, it will meet your needs or we will work until it does."

AVCO Technologies' Specialties: Our design team specializes in evaluating the unique needs of our clients and providing cost effective and innovative solutions.  Every application is unique and seldom does a “cookie cutter” design fit each clients needs.  From concept drawings to installation, the AVCO team provides the right products and expertise to design and install the system needed to meet the client’s requirements.  Our designers are abreast of leading edge technologies and are trained and skilled to specify only the best equipment for the project.  Our resources include, but are not limited to the following venues:

  • Audio and Sound Reinforcement Systems
  • Projection and Presentation Video Systems
  • Sound Masking and Sound Absorption
  • Control Systems with AV Automation
  • Theatrical Lighting
  • CATV and CCTV Solutions
  • Video Conferencing Integration and Multi-media Classrooms

AVCO Technologies' Products, Services and Project Management: The advent of the ‘information age’ has changed the way the world listens and learns.  Churches, corporations and institutions must get the message across in the shortest amount of time…capturing and holding the attention of the associate, client and consumer.  There are many products and services available that serve to grab the attention of the user.  AVCO sells, services, rents and supports only the finest in AV, sound, and computer presentation equipment.  We represent the best manufacturers in the industry including:

  • Eiki
  • Extron
  • QSC
  • Yamaha
  • Electrovoice
  • Draper
  • Crestron
  • Aviom
  • Sennheiser
  • AKG
  • Telex
  • Da-lite
  • Kramer

We are committed to supplying the industry’s premier products: offering quality workmanship and premium technology.  AVCO provides the right products and expertise to design the system that a client needs.  We work within a client’s budget while providing the most up-to-date technology.  Our designers hold certificates and degrees in many vocations.

Because AVCO specializes in complete system design and installation projects, our project management skills are of the utmost importance to our business, and ultimately, our clients.  We have installed systems at hundreds of churches and corporations and count our success due to our focus on four main project management areas:  scope, time, budget control and service.  In a nutshell our project management goals and objectives are as follows:

  • Planning the scope of the project
  • Project meeting with client to discuss design and budgets
  • Analysis and design of objectives and events
  • Assessing any risks involved
  • Project budget estimation
  • Allocation of resources
  • Organizing the work
  • Acquiring any equipment or product needed
  • Assigning tasks to the individual project team members
  • Directing activities
  • Controlling project execution
  • Tracking and reporting project progress
  • Quality management within the installation
  • Issues management
  • Issues solving
  • Defect prevention
  • Project testing and acceptance period (burn-in)
  • Service after the project closure

The next important objective after the system has been installed and tuned is service.  A customer will not remain a customer if they are uncomfortable with the service after the project completion.  AVCO is different than most AV companies.  We understand the need to have a reliable partner just a telephone call away, especially if the customer experiences an emergency or has a special event. 

For this reason, AVCO offers on-site and depot repair services.  We provide a toll free number and automated answering system for warranty and service calls on a 24/7 basis.  Our standard warranty is one year on our installations, which includes a loaner program if you purchased the complete system from AVCO.  One of the most successful programs that we implemented many years ago is the FREE projector loaner program for presentation systems and installations. 

We also offer a team approach to technical support, user training, and preventive maintenance and “tune-up” services.  Our documentation is second to none when the system is complete and has completed a review and acceptance test by the client.  Once the project is complete and the client has approved the installation, our team delivers completed project documentation including detailed set-up sheets, a bill of material, cut sheets, AutoCAD drawings and users manuals for all of the products included within the project.

AVCO Technologies' Testing and Training: Whether in a new design or an existing project, the AVCO Technology team can assist in enhancing an AV or Presentation system by proper calibration of the Audio, Video, and Lighting systems. 

AVCO Technologies' Consulting and Architectural Coordination: AVCO Technologies utilizes industry-standard software and document methods to produce a design product that is easily coordinated with the architectural and engineering trades.  In fact we have worked with local architecture firms and engineering firms as consultants for many systems.
