part of our Design Philosophy, SHOWORKS offers the following technical
consulting services for professional audio and video facilities: Step
1 - Needs Analysis Needs Analysis is the in-depth examination of the client's
audio and video needs and requirements as well as a utilization
review and cataloging of any existing presentation technology. Consideration
of specific client-use patterns prior to design greatly improves
the functionality of the final audio and video designs.
Through a series of meetings between SHOWORKS
and typical end users, system utilization information is collected
and functional requirements are defined for the finished project.
After completing a survey of existing facilities infrastructure
SHOWORKS will generate a report that includes functional system
requirements, technical considerations and budget estimates to aid
the client's in making final choices.
Working from this preliminary report, SHOWORKS
prepares a feature vs. cost analysis to aid the client’s design
team in coming to a consensus on the final selection of system requirements.
SHOWORKS can aid design team members in there
consideration of user requirements, long-range planning, flexibility,
quality, price and other parameters that help determine the final
selection of systems features.
Step 2- Preliminary Design The preliminary design is the initial engineering design
developed around the project's architectural elements and the audio
and video system decisions reached during the Needs Analysis process.
It involves close communication with all design team members to
make sure that the design is meeting all team members’ requirements.
At the completion of this Step, the client is provided with a preliminary
list of recommended equipment, one-line drawings, conduit and electrical
requirements and a budgeting proposal.
Step 3 -
During the final design step changes are made to the preliminary
design which take into account such factors as interior and architectural
design and budgetary considerations. Upon completion of these modifications,
the final drawings, proposal and bill-of-materials are prepared.
These diagrams, drawings, and renderings are complete in the manner
suitable to be incorporated into architectural plans and specifications.
Step 4 –
In addition to complete turnkey installation services
SHOWORKS can offer installation supervision
to clients who would rather utilize there own in-house electricians
and technicians. SHOWORKS
can provide all the equipment and supplies while working closely
with you employees to insure that the installation proceeds smoothly
and meets all local codes and professional standards,
5 - Training, Warranty Service and Maintenance SHOWORKS
can provide training at the end of the project to make sure that
the users have the knowledge and skills to effectively operate all
control systems and components. SHOWORKS prepares a custom training plan
and provides instructors and all materials.
Most every thing we sell (except disposables like
headphones, earphones, cables, tape and optical media), whether
a standalone component or as part of a complete integrated system,
comes with a limited (usually one year) warranty maintenance service
agreement. To further support your communications environment you
can also take advantage of a wide variety of service contracts,
preventive maintenance agreements and extended warranties. These
agreements provide ongoing protection at the same level of service
and reliability after manufacturers' warranty periods have expired.
Maintenance agreements available include:
Preventive Maintenance Programs
Emergency Repairs and Service Agreements
Recommended Spares and Accessories Kits
SHOWORKS also offers continuous maintenance and operations
under a program we call CAM (Complete Asset Management). Our CAM
program provides SHOWORKS technicians to operate and maintain you
system on a continuing basis. Our staff becomes your staff and visitors

Whenever you plans call for new or upgraded Audio/Visual systems let
proven design philosophy provide you will all the benefits of a well
