We believe the key to success
is a committed partnership.

For an audiovisual and media company, it should be a given that the gear and service will be outstanding. We are proud of our reputation in this regard. What separates us is our fundamental philosphy behind what we do. We are not just an audiovisual provider, we are your AV department. We are committed to being accountable, service-driven, leadership-focused, and professional.


The nicest compliment is a referral. To generate that sort of organic promotion requires successful events (every time), talented video production, brand recognition, and strong relationship building. We believe we check all the boxes and are honored to share what our clients say.

Thank you all for your exceptional help with our event!! Our team here at CPAH is very happy with the end result, and all the participants and speakers seemed to enjoy themselves. We appreciate all your expertise in making this event seamless.

I just wanted to extend my deepest appreciation for all your support and help in putting on our virtual gala! The entire time I felt so confident in the success of this event because you all were working on it. Our attendees mentioned many times how great the sound quality was, the look, and the videos. Several people said it was the most organized event they have been a part of. This is thanks to YOU! Wishing your team the best in this new, strange virtual world.

Just a quick note to thank you again for all your help with Duocon 2020. We had tens of thousands of people tune in from every corner of the globe—obviously everything went off without a hitch, and everyone who watched was very impressed by the quality and consistency. We worked hard to remove as many of the variables as possible in advance, and you played a big part in that. Thank you again so much! Looking forward to working with you again in the future.
