Audio Solutions

Enhanced audio for employees and customers.

Audio quality is one of the most important factors that influence the user-experience in any space. Yet high-quality audio is frequently overlooked and even taken for granted when planning or remodeling a room. Whether the environment is a conference room, a sports bar, or a gymnasium, special consideration must be given to ensure high fidelity sound with predictable intelligibility in that space. Each of these example spaces has its own audio needs.

HBS AV design engineers always consider the intended purpose of a room and pay particular attention to how to maximize the audio performance for that room and its use.

Audio Benefits

Quality Audio

When planned and executed properly, great audio quality is rarely noticed.  It is when the audio quality is poor that it demands attention.  Let HBS help you make the audio in your space perform so well that it is transparent.

Sound Masking

Speech privacy is an important issue in areas adjacent to spaces where sensitive conversations are held, such as boardrooms, healthcare exam rooms, etc.  A well-designed sound-masking system masks the intelligibility of speech to keep conversations private.  These systems are also employed in open office spaces, or 'cube-farms,' to help office workers focus on their work by reducing the distractions of adjacent conversations.

Acoustic Treatment

The shape, furnishings and surfaces in every space help influence how sound is heard within it.  Some spaces are resonant, ringing, and reverberant.  Other spaces sound soft and muted.  The intended use of the room demands a certain balance of these sound properties. HBS AV design engineers can guide you to achieving the right sound for your space by creating a predictive analysis and prescription for the careful selection and placement of acoustic absorption panels.

Discover why HBS is the right partner for your organization.


HBS delivers complete, local, end-to-end technology solutions backed by a large team of engineers and consultants available to assist with any technology need.

When you partner with HBS AV, you’ll feel like part of our team. Our AV Engineers work well and efficiently together. Many of the team have been together for nearly twenty years (they can practically finish each other's sentences).

Our team of AV Engineers will meet with you to discover what you need and provide a dedicated Project Manager who will coordinate the installation schedule and personally shepherd your project from the initial kickoff meeting to the close of the project. After installation we will provide final user-training. You’ll have a Lead Installation Technician who takes ownership of your project and assures a clean installation. Our Master Programmer will design the control system and the user-interface so intuitively you'll likely not need the comprehensive "Quick Reference Guide" created for your project.

Consult, Assess, and Design

The HBS AV Team will listen to your story to identify your pain-points, learn how you use your space, survey your existing equipment, and design the best solution for your needs and your budget. 

Customize and Implement

The HBS AV Team is not "set in their ways." They are agile and adaptive, always looking for better ways to design and implement the best solution for the project.

Manage and Support

The HBS AV Team can diagnose, repair, and, if necessary, rebuild existing AV systems installed by others.  We can also install a network appliance to facilitate remote access to your HBS-installed system, allowing firmware upgrades and adjustments to your system without the cost of an on-site service call.

"From business analysis to steady-state support, HBS was an invaluable strategic partner during our SharePoint implementation and key to the success of our project for our health agency."
