We make technology work

Do you know how technology can enhance your event?  How lighting can create a different mood at the flick of a switch or how a well presented video can capture your audience’s imagination?

Technology needs managing. We don’t believe in technology for technology’s sake but we do believe that technology can enhance your event when designed and integrated properly.

Whether you’re a technical whizz or technophobe we have been offering honest advice since 2003 on all aspects of sound, lighting, video, rigging and staging.  We’ve worked with hundreds of customers from schools, colleges & universities to churches, community centres & venues.  Our customers come from all walks of life, private individuals and voluntary organisations through to huge corporate entities, but our commitment to searching for the best possible solution by taking the time to understand their needs never changes.

We have grown our company with the vast majority of our work coming from word of mouth, talk to us to find out why.
