You can have the best audio, video, and lighting equipment on the market, but if it is complicated to use, it will not get utilized to its full potential. Systems can have hundreds of knobs, switches, level adjustments, power switches, touch interfaces, etc. All of these can be extremely intimidating to an end user. Even though end users may be technically savvy, they often do not have the time or desire to learn the ins-and-outs of all the equipment in the systems that they are operating. We work hand-in-hand with clients to gage how they want to interact with their system. We design and program control systems that meet their desired level of automation, not necessarily what a programmer (tech geek) thinks they need. A user interface that is not intuitive just adds to the complexity of the system. Intuitive user interfaces that are catered specifically to the client’s needs are what we deliver. We present the user experience to the client before we ever install the system so that we insure the client is comfortable and not caught off guard.
