What Do We Know About?

ArchiTechnology℠

We coined the term:  ArchiTechnology the early 1990’s to describe the convergence and integration of presentation and entertainment technologies into the built environment. Essentially, ArchiTechnology the study of how the human perception mechanisms work, how the various audio and visual technologies work, and how the environment contributes or diminishes the effective transfer of information from the technologies to the audience.

Our practice of ArchiTechnology℠ means that we look well beyond the Audiovisual systems we design and predict to optimize the performance of the completed venue, and the comfort and quality of the audiences’ experience.
