Our Work

Tizzy, Thanks for your coordination efforts in getting our VTC system up and running again. Additionally, many thanks to Ken for doing a great job training our end-users on the new system last week
— U.S. Army, Ft Belvoir

On behalf of the United States Army Inspector General School, I would like to express our appreciation for the outstanding service provided by Total Audio Visual Systems, particularly to Tizzy Mallette and Roly Jan.

The audio visual system we purchased represents a considerable investment by the Inspector General Agency. We have not been disappointed. Everyone involved in the project has been a true professional from the initial estimate, through installation and most importantly in follow-up service; everything was completed on time as specified. We placed significant demands on Total Audio Visual Systems, specifically that installation and service does not affect our class schedule. Not only did you complete the installation on time as promised, but you continuously provided fast responsive follow-up service and additions to the original system.

Everyone involved in this project from Total Audio Visual Systems has given the extra effort to insure that the system enhanced classroom instruction and provided the capabilities we requested; an outstanding effort by a great crew
— United States Army Inspector General Agency

Total AV, in their dedication to us made last minute arrangements to once again put us on the top of their priority list, and Roly spent the entire day with me in the preparation.

. . . In speaking with the hotel staff, they let me know that if they had a problem, they would call upon another company, similar to Total AV, to resolve their problems. I spoke to that company, who were impressed that we had the relationship that we do with Total AV and his final comment to me was that if anyone could solve any problems, Roly could do it. This made me feel even better in my continued support of him and his company.

Thank you Tizzy, The office was closed yesterday by the storm. But, the technician was here and we are happy

Roly, Thanks a ton for the patience and knowledge. Can’t tell you how happy I was to have someone actually ask the right questions.
— Intrado

Thank you Total AV! for helping to make our event a great success! I have twice rented equipment from Total AV for events I organized, most recently this past weekend and I wanted to thank your staff for their helpfulness. It was much appreciated.
— Huppahs

Thanks to Roly and Duane for getting us ready for our first Board meeting yesterday. I didn’t stay for the whole meeting (12 hours) but I heard rumors that one brave staff member relied on one of the new laptop stations you wired up to make his presentation.

The chairman made note of the new system at the beginning of the meeting . . . He also mentioned the importance of other coming tech improvements. Again, thanks for making this first meeting a success.
— Maryland National Capitol Park and Planning Commission

Thank you for your AV support, Tim, Derek and Tony are techs we need onsite for all meetings. Tim is very professional and responds without hesitation. . . .The entire time while onsite I did not receive any negative feedback about TAVS performance. I will speak with the Project Director and suggest that we include you in the debriefing related to AV support. . . . Again, your performance was great.
— Social and Scientific Systems, Inc.

Hi Roly, Really appreciate your prompt assistance in our last minute request. Great support as always.

Total AV Systems installed a new public address system in our auditorium . . . This system serves our weekly public meetings held by five officials appointed by the Montgomery County County Executive. the system selected, designed and installed by Total AV Systems works perfectly for our needs and the staff finds the system easy to use.

Because Total AV did such an outstanding job, we called them back to do further work. Right now they are doing substantial work in our auditorium installing several plasma screens, adding an assisted listening system, monitors at each seating position used by our officials and staff . . . I highly recommend Total AV for design, installation and maintenance and I have found them to be very responsive to emergency calls. They were very creative in finding just the right combination audio video solutions for our needs and budget
— Maryland National Capitol Park and Planning Commission

. . . I am writing to exclaim about your AV tech, Chuck. Pardon us for not knowing Chuck’s last name, however, after working with him last week and discovering how efficient and competent he is, we fell as though we have known him for some time.

Please indulge us for a moment and let us share with you our experience with Chuck. We arrived at Hotel . . . to meet with Chuck and talk about the equipment and our expectations for the next day. Chuck was very prompt and immediately became engaged in our planning process. However, after reviewing our plans, we learned that the Hotel had not confirmed that Total Audio Visual would be onsite for our meeting the next day. As you can imagine, we were hard-pressed to ensure his services and asked if he could be there the next morning. Chuck agreed that he could and we asked him to be there at 6:00 am.

The next morning Chuck was there at 6:00 am and from the moment he arrived until the moment he departed that afternoon, Chuck was steadfast, answered our every call, worked out every niche, fixed every problem, anticipated any quirks, and followed through right until the end. Chuck is an asset to your corporation and delivers professional acumen in his area of expertise.

Please extend our heartfelt “Thanks” and Gratitude to Chuck for his commitment to our project. We will certainly call on his services for our future offsite meetings and we hope you value his skill as much as we did.

— U.S. Naval Academy

Just a short note to let you know how well things went last week at our election night party. There were plenty of “road blocks”. . . . Your guidance and advise in advance was great and that day your guys were great. Michael Lee was “the man” and made my life easier knowing that he was there, understood the situation and was able to respond to problems. Thank him for me again. Looking forward to doing this again, somewhere, in two years.

This is just a note of deep appreciation for the professionalism and calm that the people at the West Barre Street, Baltimore branch displaed when I rented a projector from them this past weekend. . . . When the initial equipment wasn’t correct, they went out of their way to remedy it and the show worked perfectly. I won’t bore you with the details . . . suffice it to say, when he said 15 pins, I could hve counted what I had and discovered that I had the wrong equipment, but I never double checked, and they saved the day, Thanks again.

Please make a notation of the two guys we used last week for this order. If we ever need Total AV to help us with any future events we want them back! They were on-time, professional, knowledgeable, great communicators . . . you name it. I sometimes deal with folks who just either don’t care or really don’t know what they are doing. Those two are gems! Thanks so much.

I am writing today to recommend the services of Total Audio Visual, specifically the work of Roly and Tizzy. . . . There were many complaints about an electrical feedback loop causing a “humming noise” in our output to the press. . . . Roly has specifically been instrumental in working with the electrician to trace circuits and find the specific source of the problem. He has worked many hours on this to make sure we were satisfied with the result.

Also in that time frame we have renovated one of our conference rooms, Tizzy and Roly were involved from the beginning. Through Roly’s diligent work and suggestions we now have a room installed with all the latest technology and equipment available. It is our most popular meeting space and has the flexibility to do video conference, audio conference . . . .and web based applications.

I highly recommend the services of Total AV. In fact we are about to build our own building and I wouldn’t want anyone else to work on the conference audio visual systems. I know there are other options for the services they provide, but Roly and Tizzy are the first people I will call on.

No matter how complex or short-fused the request was, Mr. Kelley responded quickly and courteously. He helped to make the conference one of our most successful. In closing, please convey my sincere appreciation to Mr. Kelley for all of his hard work. . . .

I’m writing to thank your team for their outstanding service, advice and support . . . Roly Jan and his team of crack installers are truly magic workers. Because my ceiling is angled and the room has other awkward characteristics, the had to work out creative solutions, not only did Paul and the other installers solve the problems, they solved them in such a way as to enhance the beauty of the system and minimize the visibility of wires and other hardware. Throughout, Roly was always available to answer technical questions and provide guidance on the right choices to make. My most sincere thanks again to you and your organization for such excellent work. It was a pleasure throughout, and I will recommend Total AV to anyone looking for the best in business systems.

For many years, the National Association of Attorneys General has utilized your audio visual services for our meetings held in the Hall of the States building. Throughout the years your employees have always been extremely professional, personable and patient, especially with last minute requests.

I am writing this letter to tell you how much I enjoy working with Derrick Williams and Charles Puryear. Two days before our spring meeting was to begin, I found out our meeting would need additional audio visual equipment. I was very concerned, since it was 8:00 p.m. on a Friday evening, and our meeting was to begin that Sunday morning. Fortunately, I was able to reach Derrick . . . I was still nervous because I didn’t know if Total AV would even be able to provide us with the extra equipment at such late notice. Derrick was wonderful! He was very patient and of course, was able to get the job done without a moment’s hesitation. That is the kind of professionalism and customer service Derrick and your other employees provide.

Throughout the entire week of our meeting, both Derrick and Charles continued providing their usual personable and professional services. The are always available and patient with last minute changes. I know I can count on them to get the job done.

Thank you for your continued excellent customer service. Please pass my gratitude and appreciation to your other employees who service us as well. I look forward to working with you and your company in the future.

Before too much time passes, I want to write to thank you for the superb job Total Audio Visual Systems did at our Board meeting at the NEA . . . From the time Derrick Williams and Charles Puryear arrived on Monday afternoon to set up the system until they left 24 hours later with the equipment, they demonstrated a professionalism that is rarely seen. Having worked with Total AV for several years, I’m still very impressed with the quality and the performance of you staff, as well as your equipment.

My boss remarked on how professional Charles is and looks and how patient he was through a rather long, tedious meeting. Chuck is a pleasure to work with and you should be very pleased to have him representing your company. . . .
