One of The Biggest Questions We Get is...

What is Drop-In A/V®?And What Makes Drop-In A/V® Better Than Other Systems?

Drop-In A/V® is the answer to unreliable, hard to support, and challenging to use AV systems.

Today’s Audio-Visual (AV) technology is fantastic but can be complicated to operate and is pieced together from components installed and tested onsite at the customer’s facility. We invented a patented Drop-In A/V® System (U.S. Patent No. 10,609,326 B2) to address these problems and provide complementary tools and a team of experts to train support staff so they can understand, manage, and support their in-house AV systems.

The Drop-In A/V® Difference

All Drop-In A/V® Systems are built to our customer’s specifications, programmed, and tested at every production stage in our Texas-based factory. Once installed, Drop-In A/V® is ready to operate and integrate seamlessly with your network and AV management system.
Our technology is cost-effective – delivering precisely what our customers need with flexible templates repeatable across rooms, buildings, or campuses – reliable because they are factory-built by Drop-In A/V®. Our U.S.-based engineers develop and test all Drop-In A/V® software and provide the technical support.
Drop-In A/V® delivers systems as a complete and integrated unit ready to install and operate onsite. Managed Drop-In A/V® Systems are always up-to-date and continually monitor usage for maintenance and reporting.

We have college-wide AV systems that just work...

As one of the fastest-growing community colleges in the nation, Lone Star College (LSC) relies on innovative technology companies to meet the needs of its 99,000 students across six campus locations. "We needed all classrooms outfitted with AV systems with a simple control interface so anyone can walk up and use the system and instructors can focus on what they do best, teaching.” ~ Butch Juelg, Associate Vice Chancellor, Technology Service.
With over 22,000 square feet of meeting space that staff can arrange in various configurations with Drop-In A/V® Systems, the LSC-University Park Conference Center has a simplified AV set-up with factory-preprogrammed touch screens providing a push-button solution.
“Drop-In A/V® allowed us to standardize our classroom AV technology across multiple campuses. Now we have college-wide A/V systems that just work and are easy to maintain and support."
