Mad Systems is a unique Technology Company that applies creativity and creative solutions to your projects including Audio Visual Systems and Interactive Exhibits.

We are a creative team that work with you to tell your story – from scripting and media to hardware systems. We will take on your project from beginning to end. Using creative engineering solutions and both established as well as the very latest technologies as needed, we create reliable and easy-to-maintain exhibits that tell your stories and communicate your messages. From simple touch screen interactives to complete immersive experiences, we will handle the entire process, from beginning to end. With in-house software facilities, a high def/4k/16k capable studio, hardware capabilities and even a full metalwork workshop, there is little that we can’t do – and with existing systems out there that have been working for many years, you know you are in good hands.

Creativity and Project Management. Just that. It’s hard to keep the technology aligned with the other contractors building your building, or implementing the infra-structure and tech. The GC presumably hasn’t done a project like this before – it is unusual if they have. The E/C is more used to wiring commercial buildings, not dealing with specialist AV requirements; not only that, but those fluorescent tubes are OK in a standard grid configuration on the ceiling, right? Any reason there’s an issue with those windows in the theater? The HVAC and mechanical folks are not familiar with the cooling requirements of some of your exhibits, and they’re certainly not aware that that tornado machine you have needs to be treated very carefully when it comes to airflow parameters.
Don’t panic – we can help – we’ve been doing this for years. Not only is trying to do this without professional project management expensive in the short term, it will also result in delays and long term trouble that really is not necessary. Making sure that there is enough power, and that the power phasing is done correctly, that cable paths are right, that you don’t end up having to use circuit breakers to turn your power on and off (just think of the fire hazard when they stop protecting your building – read our blog post on the subject). Getting your system right is a worthwhile effort, certainly in the long run – and the only way to ensure that the integration work happens properly is to have someone there who has already come this way – ideally a good few times.

Call us! We want to help you succeed

You are working on a concept, a solution, a vision. We will help you to select the best technology to meet your design, and your clients needs. We will work as part of your team, and make sure that we creatively apply technology to ensure your concept is executed properly. Hiding the technology behind your vision? No problem. Designing a showcase to show off the technology? We’re on board. Details such as video quality, avoiding audio bleed while still giving impactful shows, media, all the way through details such as power estimates, generated heat predictions and infra-structure design? We excel. Design of interactives, both electronic and electro-mechanical? Right down our street. Technical project management, and guidance for the General Contractor, the Mechanical Contractor and the Electrical Contractor are essential to the proper project management of the technology in any given space. infra-structure design is essential for the proper and cost-effective implementation of your plans – and we are experts at just that. We will help select the best technology for your venues, displays and exhibits, and come up with creative ideas to make them outstanding.

Of course we do the usual Audio, Video and related designs – but our team can go much further. We specialize in interactive designs, and sensor technologies. Gesture based designs, RFID, puppeteering using hand gestures, video recognition. Providing system that recognize individual visitors in a space; capturing video all around your venue for specific visitors, families or groups. Generating DVDs for sale in the store, or pushing captured imagery and visitor selected information to a web site – nothing is too much for our engineering department, and a lot of it has already been done with examples to show. Pre-visit and post-visit visitor management and solutions – we’re your team.

Our engineers and designers will provide the optimal solution for your design, and provide choices. We will either design to a given budget, or track potential costs as the design morphs towards the final presentation and even all the way through implementation, so that there is never that embarrassing moment where the technology costs are three times what the client is expecting. With experience that encompasses the entire spectrum of creative technology and using technology to enhance creativity, we can bring more to the party than just the hardware, or just the programming, or just the prep for the media company. Mad will help your vision become true.

We’ll also deal with those so often forgotten details – like switching the system on and off automatically while making sure that t’s easy to deal with the special events. We’ll control the lights for different conditions, and if need be we will make sure that the staff can use their smartphone to bump the audio volume in the gallery during the busy days of the year.

Mad Systems is truly agnostic when it comes to technology. We do not have tie-ins with suppliers or manufacturers. We are free to select the best options for your project. We specialize in non-proprietary systems that are designed to be as reliable, as easy as possible to use, and as easy as possible to maintain so that ongoing costs can be contained. Most of our systems have remote access so that we can continue to support our systems remotely on the odd occasion it might be required – usually at no cost.

The scene is set, and the technology has to work with it. Maybe there is an existing rudimentary design. Maybe there’s just the RFP. We’ll prepare a bid, and help to take an existing design, and implement it as it should be. We will suggesting creative improvements if it makes sense, help with the value engineering process, or changes as agreed to incorporate the latest in technology or avoid obsolete parts. We will help to integrate the technology into the set. We can take care of infra-structure requirements, and interface with the GC and EC, making sure cable paths and types as well as cooling are taken care of properly. Designing and building the structure and best sensor technology for interactives, working with your design team and the client to make the implementation and installation of their vision as painless as possible. We’ll take an interactive and make it work from beginning to end including mechanical, electrical, programming and if necessary the graphics and media. We’ll do stability and factory testing before delivery so that the integration of the final solution is done and tested before it is delivered to site.

Mad Systems helps Architects with a variety of technologies, often starting with acoustic analysis and remediation, infra-structure integration, consultancy and cost analysis and cost tracking of technology including AV and AV related systems; and we can install, program and commission these systems to your client’s complete satisfaction. From corporate lobbies to sculptural elements, video conferencing, presentation and boardrooms, huddle rooms, teaching facilities, and theaters.

We’re not just another AV company – Mad does Technology in a much wider sense. We can help to create environments where technology is integrated and present – but not in one’s face. We can help with audio systems that deliver sound where it’s needed – but without being heard all over the building. Mad is familiar with a wide range of technologies, and can help with creative engineering to make sure solutions work well, and work sympathetically.
