  • "I have recommended Electro-Media Design on several projects and every time they made me look good to my clients. Being the Owner’s Advocate while maximizing value and technology effectiveness are hallmarks of Electro-Media’s services. They have saved our clients significant time and money by applying their experience in critically evaluating the level and sophistication of the technologies required, and effectively communicating with the design team and contractors.
     
    One example is a hotel project in London where Electro-Media Design was able to discover acoustic issues which would have caused major problems in the main event space if they had gone unaddressed. The solution was relatively easy since it was caught early. Otherwise, fixing the problem would have been cost prohibitive or even impossible.  On the same project, a special limited-purpose screening room was programmed; EMD developed a complete business and marketing strategy with  flexible options for this space resulting in greater profit potential than originally intended. This expertise is unique to EMD, as no other consultant has the combination of experience in both technologies and AV operations that they do."

  • “Since the new Theater opened, our musicals have been standing room only. We are also experiencing wonderful turnout for our introduction of classical drama. It is truly a theater for the arts and not just an auditorium. Amongst schools, it is one of the finest acoustical spaces I have experienced. It is extraordinary for musicals. We recently performed Fiddler on the Roof and had five scenes out in the house. Student performers could face 360 degrees and still be understood. I have sat in all four corners of the Theater and can always hear clearly. Others have responded in the same positive way.”

  • "EMD was incisive and professional in their approach to analyzing our AV agreement and identifying opportunities to increase our commissions.  Their knowledge of the AV industry and the support information they provided allowed me to re-negotiate the commission structure that not only increased commissions but made the tracking much easier.   I would recommend that any CFO interested in maximizing revenues give EMD the opportunity to look at their AV operations to see if they can increase the bottom line as they did for us."

  • "I have known Jeff for well over 15 years and during this time my respect for his professionalism and expertise in the field of meeting technology has continued to grow.

In my opinion, Jeff is at the top of the pack and is my primary "go to" person for information and advice for the design and operation of exceptional meeting facilities. Aside from his expertise, Jeff is an engaged and generous contributor to the meetings industry. He gives freely of his time and is genuinely interested in improving the meetings industry.

  • "People who have strong experience and intimate perspectives on multiple industries are rare indeed. Jeff Loether is one of those people. Part system designer, part product designer, part hospitality market expert, Jeff combines training, experience, creativity, heart, and street smarts relative to audio/video (AV) systems in public meeting and entertainment spaces. His unique--often uncanny--ability to size up a problem or design challenge makes him a "go to" person for the integrated AV systems industry."
