Quality Quotes for Quality Service!

AQAV is non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the operational art of designing and installing audio visual technology. Engineered audio visual systems continue to become more complex and difficult to integrate.  By focusing on the quality management of these systems, and of those who design and install them, we can benefit the AV industry and all its stakeholders:  including clients and users of AV technology, AV designers and installers, equipment manufacturers, related construction and architectural firms, and the environment.


  • By defining standards for quality management systems (AV9000)
  • By providing training on AV quality issues
  • By providing appraisal audits of AV systems
  • By providing appraisal audits of AV companies

Audio visual technology is commanding a significant share of a capital budget. The need for finding qualified designers and integrators with management systems in place to assure consistent quality has never been greater, and the cost of poor quality is staggering.

This organization is a membership organization open to ALL parties interested in improving the outcome of the integrated audio visual system. If you are interested in joining or contributing to this effort please contact We look forward to working with you!
