SERVICES

The following services are available to clients in the greater Seattle and Eastside neighborhoods. Setup, troubleshooting, and performance optimization services are available for newly purchased systems or for existing systems that might just need upgrades or a tune up. 

SYSTEM DESIGN

AV Setup Help takes pride in creating custom system designs that focus on the integration and intuitive control of high performance home theater, distributed audio video, network, and home control systems that blend seamlessly with your interior décor and landscaping. During the design process special attention is given to the smallest details and time is taken to inform you about solutions that are appropriate to meet lifestyle, performance, and budget expectations for projects of any scale. 

PROJECT COORDINATION

AV Setup Help coordinates directly with interior designers, general contractors, and all other project related trades to ensure a smooth transition from system design to completed installation. A note about pre-wires and structural or electrical requirements for a project: After a system design is finalized I will coordinate with your licensed general contractor and/or electrician to have the necessary wire run and to specify items such as structural support for mounting TV’s, electrical outlet placement, running conduit, and any other requirements that would need to be performed by a contractor. 

INSTALLATION / SETUP SERVICES

System Installation: Expert installation of all audio, video, network, and control related hardware with special attention given to clean wire management, protection of the work environment during installation as well as proper cleanup upon completion.

System Setup/Optimization: Configuration of all audio, video, and network related settings and installation of the latest firmware and software updates to ensure that your system components are performing at optimal levels.

Networks: Design and setup of reliable and secure wired and wireless networks including setup of multiple wireless access points for roaming networks, router configuration, setup of NAS RAID systems and Cloud based storage and backup solutions. 

HOME CONTROL SOLUTIONS

Almost every device we install in our smart homes today has its own control app that we download to our iOS and Android mobile devices. Examples would be Sonos audio systems, Nest thermostats and cameras, Lutron Caseta lighting and shades, Eero wifi, and the list goes on! AV Setup Help will setup these devices with the app and configure settings for intuitive and reliable control. For home theater systems with multiple audio and video sources such as Xfinity cable, Apple TV, and BluRay players AV Setup Help will program URC universal remote controls to easily control it all with one remote! Programming is meticulously tested to ensure reliable operation of all of your AV equipment.  

CD RIPPING 

The final step in upgrading to a digital streaming home audio system such as Sonos is to have your entire CD collection available to listen to without having to find and load individual CD’s into a player. AV Setup Help provides professional CD Ripping services to transfer CD collections to NAS hard drive for use with house audio music streaming systems. CD’s are ripped in lossless audio file formats using high performance hardware and software to ensure a bit perfect archival copy of your purchased CD collection. The CD Ripping service also includes meticulous editing of the ID Tag information for each CD to ensure that the artist, album, composer, genre, track, and cover art information displays properly in your media player of choice.
