That's correct Great Chief. Crows make only your Costs Soar. Try asking your existing vendor what Value you realize by engaging them.

Hello! My name is Joseph Jaime. Thank you for stopping by today. We started Independent AV back in 1992 with 2 Goals in mind.. The 1st was using the Independent Film Makers Business Model to deliver the most value with the leanest budget possible.
In the old days of movies, there was the studio system. Films had too much overhead. It didn’t matter because the Monopolies were the order of the day. SCOTUS dismantled the studio system in 1948. It’s a great American story. Read it here.
Today, Big Box AV is squashing competition, oppressing Customers like you, & AV Kids. They Deliver a low Value to Cost Ratio. They call that “Consolidation”. I have my own term for it. They change their names but not their style. They win. You lose. You are their Captive Customer.
Cookie Cutter AV survives the same way. The hotel gets a 50+% kick up for doing nothing quite well. Who wins? Who Loses? You, AV Employees, & Professional Contractors Believe it or not, Media, including Audio Visual is not a 1 size fits all proposition.
Smaller companies can help you win with Value. That’s not the same as the cheapest price. There are some great ones out there, we work with them.
With IAVVI, it means you can tell it’s all premier quality when you see and hear it. Think of radiologists studying material for 3-5 days. We all want them to get the most out of AV for CMW . It's also great if you won't be ashamed to tell your colleagues, how much you over-spent on stale AV or unstructured multimedia.
What is our 2nd Goal ? It's simply to support clients, for whom what we provide, is Mission Critical. That’s a phrase that people love to use. Few mean it. HINT: If they are using the same team and gear for a Social or Non-Profit Charity project, that they do for the docs that treat cancer, it’s probably not Mission Critical. Either that, or the “Charity” has extra money! We believe your audience deserves more. You and they deserve the same great experience--good communications.
Our clients give us the time we need to design in and deliver both high value and quality. If someone is planning their AV 30 days or less before their meeting, sorry, that is not Mission Critical, it’s Panic Critical, and apparently less important than rubber chicken. We still do our best but better to bring us in early.
When you engage us, your project is Mission Critical. We even help clients find the best venue for their specific event. It’s in our culture. Also, we do not quote blindly. Would you have an auto mechanic without a diagnosis & estimate? If we have not worked in a venue recently, we want to go look at it, especially if the venue told you "all the AV is built in". It's not. In fact, we insist on a FREE site survey. Even if the AV is not built in, how else to know the best screen size? We insist on understanding your project too. Mission Critical is like when you have Health Care Professionals who need clear, crisp detail on their screens, not Video Walls, which we call eye candy. You can do both, but the guys that own them, must pay for them first. Audio Wise, in our events, the medicalese sounds clear, the sponsor’s molecule sounds good, not muddy. Typically, Mission Critical involves Scientific Material, with an audience that is there to learn. It’s not one size fits all. People that say it can be, probably believe a hammer in a box is a toolbox and are new to the business.
When we do AV, clients expect a lot out of us, and we expect much from them, like a plan. We are this particular with everything we deliver. It can be as simple as a projector screen rental or an interesting AV event production, a Video Production, or a Pod Cast. After all, we are old school, which means we are only as good as our last project. We quote from experience, and always with your audience, presenters, crew slots, and budget in mind. We also trust the venue will survive without a 50+% Kick Up from you.
Let’s get acquainted. We are proud to have produced Houston's first Hybrid event, in 1 Jun 2021. Everyone thought we were crazy to go out in a Covid Spike. What became a favorite client of ours, was prepared to, and in the middle of an M & A,. Inspired by them, we produced a Hybrid, when everyone else thought it was a new car. We will help Take you There Too, from Hybrid to Live +, Seamlessly, with Scale Ability in Mind, and at Prices that Make Sense in the Post Lock Down Environment and the climate that followed.
We were working with Multimedia before it was What Everyone Else is just now trying. We are American Made, American Proud and Here when you need us. Respectfully, Joe Jaime, Founder, IAVVI, Houston 713-688-2110 "
VENUE: J.W. MARRIOTT DOWNTOWN
"Inspired by our Essential Client's Boldness, when others followed Fear, we followed Faith, gathering great people, great equipment, and a skeloton venue crew, all for a great client. We took care of business. The rest of the year, we answered the phone as our colleagues had questions. We shared our lessons learned then and still do now.
CASE STUDY: It's May 31st, 2020. We are in the First Spike of Covid 19. While others were wondering whether it was safe to work, we got a call from what has became one of our favorite Clients. They are Engineering Leaders and were in the middle of an M & A. Having received a call from them and their Venue, we were summoned to duty. Hybrid or "Semi-Remote" was still a theory. Dared we? Of course. Inspired by them, we concluded that if this client could step up, needing our help to Stream across our Country, then we would join them, putting our best foot forward. This mission required a steep learning curve. Yet, because of Years of Supporting the biggest names in Houston’s Medical Center, we understood Researching the Facts at Hand. Long Story Short, we and they took care of Business, and we did so Affordably and Safely. We didn’t need them to Spend Thousands on some, unproven App with Servers, Who knows Where. The formula was the same. Great & Thoroughly Seasoned People + Up to Date & Quality Gear + our Experience Gained across Decades in Both Multi-Media Production and Live Events, together we engaged Boldly and made it work. It took Bold Leadership on the Venue's part too. This problem needed a solution, not a Black box, Key Words, or an Unfair Price. Classic Double Win. Now What?
Now it's Time for the the Giant, the Medium and the Small Businesses to Relaunch, and not just on Zoom! Other Organizations too. We are Prepared.
Clients suffering from Zoom Fatigue and Virtual “Conferences” are asking us for other approaches. We Understand, Streaming will never provide the Direct Experience that in person meetings can provide, especially in-person, with eye to eye contact, a handshake deal, let alone, exchanging ideas over coffee, tea, or a drink. These Media were never designed to do this. Best it is to use them as what they are, short form collaboration tools. Docs using Tele-Medicine are a Perfect Example.
We were doing " Hybrid" when everyone thought it was a new kind of car. Houston's First Hybrid Event on May 31st, 2020. We do not Follow, We Lead.
We do a lot of listening. We don't offer answers to questions you didn’t ask. We offer Solutions. If we can't, we'll find a colleague who can. We don't want to be all things to all people. We want to be, who you call, when you need Insight, born of experience from Years of working with the best in our industries . That's why we Proudly Guarantee our work and have since 1992.
