Find the Perfect AV Solutions from Innovative Audio and Video

If you’re renovating your home or building a new house, now’s the perfect time to think about an audio-video installation. Waiting until after-the-fact means you might have to deal with unsightly wires or less-than-reliable wireless connections. During construction, we can install wires and hardware within the walls for a clean aesthetic. 

Even if you aren’t undergoing a home renovation, there’s always a way to upgrade your home entertainment. So if you’re a music or movie lover, explore these five home audio-video ideas we offer in McLean, VA.

1. Home Theater or Media Room 

Want to experience movie theater immersion in the comfort of your home? We install larger-than-life visuals and surround-sound systems that can all be controlled through the same remote or phone app. 

If you don’t have space for a dedicated theater, you can still enjoy immersive visuals in a media room setup. A projector and screen can rise and lower from the ceiling so that when showtime’s over, you’ll have a more casual room layout. 

2. Whole-Home Audio 

Imagine music flowing through every room of the house—and in the yard, too! We install multi-room speaker systems that can play in unison or as separate audio zones. Whether you’re listening to playlists, the radio, the game on TV, or the morning news, you’ll always be within earshot as it plays across the property. 

3. Outdoor Speakers & Screens 

Invite friends over for a barbecue or tell them the game’s on by the pool—with outdoor AV, you can extend your entertainment to the backyard all year. We use waterproof and weatherproof equipment by brands like SunBriteTV and Coastal Source that are built to defy the elements. Outdoor TV screens are ultra-bright, too, so you can watch without glare, even on a sunny day. 

4. In-Wall & In-Ceiling Audio 

If you like the idea of multi-room audio but aren’t sure where you’d place multiple speakers, let us introduce you to hidden audio. We install speakers not just on walls and ceilings but within the walls and ceilings. All you’ll see is a flat speaker grille that can be painted to blend into the room. In-ceiling speakers still deliver robust, high-fidelity audio while remaining camouflaged. 

5. Hidden TVs 

Like hidden audio, hidden TVs can disappear or hide when not in use. TV lifts retract a display into the ceiling or below the floor with a press of a button. And artwork TVs like The Frame by Samsung turn into a work of art when powered off. You can change the art display anytime, and it will blend into your interior decor like a real painting on the wall! 

If you’re interested in any of the above AV solutions, Innovative Audio and Video is your destination. We design and install audio-video systems that perform just as flawlessly as they look.
