    How AVI-SPL Continues to Dominate the AV Industry

    Yes, huddle rooms are worth your time. Your clients are your partners, and so are your manufacturers. The sales process in AV has been inverted. These are some of the major issues facing the industry and were the top themes at AVI-SPL's annual sales summit, this year dubbed the "Sales Acceleration Summit," or AVSAS for hashtag purposes.

    2015 Top 50 Systems Integrators

    By Lindsey M. Adler On November 30, 2015 There were 7.5 million pounds of thrust that catapulted the historic Saturn V rocket from the ground at the Kennedy Space Center, bound for lunar orbit in July 1969. That enormous level of force didn't just open a whole new frontier of human exploration, it was also responsible for the first American space station.

AVI-SPL – Why Work For Us?


AVI-SPL’s Story: An Innovative Future

For businesses, universities, hospitals, government facilities and Fortune 100 companies alike, AVI-SPL delivers superior audio-visual connections. Our projects range in size from boardrooms to 6-figure capacity stadiums, and everything in between. We’ve been ranked the Top Systems Integrator by Systems Contractor News since 2008, and were named the 2011 Integrator of the Year by Commercial Integrator magazine, who lauded us for our "commitment to raising industry standards and creating more awareness of certifications."


We’ve come a long way from our small beginnings in 1979, when Audio Visual Innovations founder Martin Schaffel was selling Kroy Lettering Machines. Back then, the lettering machine created effective and efficient communications for architecture and engineering firms. Technology has advanced immensely since then,especially in the past decade, but we've always operated with the future in-mind. Our innovative mindset has led us to partner with major tech giants, giving us first-access to revolutionary products and allowing our technicians to learn from the experts most familiar with the new technology. Our progessive actions assisted us in becoming the first multi-national integrator to earn an APEx Certification, a distinction that recognizes AudioVisual Provider Excellence based on the number of employees holding key industry certifications, including InfoComm’s CTS credential, completion of continuing education classes, and positive customer survey responses.


The future is happening and AVI-SPL's forward-thinking and commitment to providing the necessary tools to our talented team members will ensure we maintain our status as industry leader for years to come. Our evolution from small beginnings to on the leading edge of audiovisual system design, build, integration and support for video conferencing, AV systems, digital media, unified communications and collaboration, intelligent building control and advanced visualization is proof of that.

    Lead Audio Video Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Herndon, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at AVI-SPL (Herndon, VA).


    Fairly laid back guy, showed me around the place, asked me a few questions, nothing technical, really a pretty poor interview process for the level of expense they dole out per employee immediately after hiring. I find it to be irresponsible and inadequate. If I were the boss I would be angry.
