PCD is California’s best bet for reliable, professional audio, visual, and communication systems for a variety of applications. Our professional staff has years of experience in planning and implementing AV solutions for everything from wineries and hotels to universities and conference halls. Our designs are frequently utilized in corporate, government, educational, worship, performance arts, and hospitality settings.
What sets us apart from other AV designers? We have and maintain CTS (Certified Technology Specialist) certification according to InfoComm’s guidelines, which dictate that we must conduct ourselves in a way that provides the best audiovisual solutions for an individual client’s needs, both while delivering on time and within the set budget.
How do we achieve this? We utilize a process called Design/Build, which allows us to stay within our CTS certification requirements by providing the best possible solution for every unique situation. At the beginning of this process, a customer reaches out to us when they’re in need of an audiovisual or communication system. We’ll set up a convenient appointment time to review the site with the client and ask a number of questions about their specific needs. This information allows us to understand the full scope of the project, which in turn allows our in house engineers to design a customized system that meets all the customer’s requirements. Once we have a design, we’ll create a budget, gain approval, and execute the plan accordingly. This process allows us to be involved every step of the way and make sure the completed project is exactly what the customer needs.
In our opinion, speaking with the customer directly and doing an in-person walkthrough is absolutely essential to getting the job done right, and we insist on doing it right. With 35 years of experience, we know our stuff, and you’ll always get a customized, professionally designed and engineered system that will blow you away.
