Our Theater AVL Design Services

At Illuminated Integration, we work with theaters to create AVL systems that will impress your audience and give them an event to remember. Our theater consultants have experience working with performance venues of all sizes and will provide you with a custom theater space design that includes:

  • Theater video systems: With our custom theater video services, you can project the performance on a screen large enough for everyone. We can install camera systems, video screens and the necessary switching equipment you need for seamless transitions. If you would like something more advanced, we can equip your stage with a projection mapping system capable of creating incredible stage visuals.
  • Theatrical lighting design: Our theater consultants will look over your venue to design a cohesive lighting arrangement that delivers the right level, tone and color before the performance, during the show and throughout the intermission. We can convert your existing lighting to efficient LED lighting, install house lights and illuminate your stage with performance-dimming LED systems and other upgrades.
  • Custom theater audio: Speaker size, quality and arrangement come together to make or break a performance. A custom performance audio system designed by our theater consultants will ensure you can put on the best show and reach your guests with crisp and audible announcements. We install speakers in the ideal configuration and support your design with the latest control and mixing technology from brands like QSC, DANTE, Allen & Heath and Avantis.

Complete Theater Space Design

Our theater consultants work with venues of any size to transform your stage into a world-class performance venue. We are passionate about the performing arts and will help you deliver the best audience experience with:

  • Curtains: We are professional theater curtain consultants. Our team will equip your venue with a custom theater curtain that will look great, meet your size requirements and match your venue’s unique look, including modern and historical styles.
  • Rigging: Our rigging solutions include static options and automatic rigging equipment to move scenery, AVL equipment, props and performers. Choose from hoists, chain motors and more from ETC that you can program to run automatically.
  • Acoustics: Let your audience hear every word and each music note with custom acoustics designed for your facility. Every acoustic installation we complete is unique and helps absorb and deflect sound based on your venue’s architecture, layout and stage design for the greatest effect.

Illuminated Integration’s Approach to Theater Design

How each theater can best create its own unique atmosphere is something our team at Illuminated Integration — experienced in design-build AVL solutions — knows a good deal about. Here are some insights as they apply to AVL design and its ability to help generate a truly immersive performance venue.

Unfortunately, in an attempt to cut corners, some theaters go with generic, recycled AVL designs. Yet all too often, the results of using these one-size-fits-all solutions are noticeably underwhelming levels of performance. The main reason for this is that these off-the-shelf AVL systems aren’t made to fit a specific theater’s needs. Instead, they’re prepackaged to provide some level of coverage to as many theaters as possible. A generic AVL system is a significant risk that can leave a theater’s stakeholders feeling frustrated and disappointed with the ROI on their investment.

The Expertise of Illuminated Integration Theater Consultants

Many of our team members got their start in theater and live performance, so we bring unmatched expertise to AVL design for performance venues. 

Towson University hired us to replace their house and stage lighting system in the Kaplan Theater. We worked on updating the system while preserving the theater’s original style. We swapped out incandescent recessed fixtures for energy-efficient LED fixtures and replaced the pendant lights over the stage with color-changing LEDs. The new LEDs mimicked the look of the pendants while providing more illumination and reduced energy use.

We also upgraded the theater’s aging curtains and enhanced the tech booths with push-button controls and a touch screen. 


At Illuminated Integration, we’re skilled at taking on the most challenging jobs that other AVL designers simply won’t touch. Thanks to our passion for getting involved from the design phase all the way through installation, launching and beyond, we don’t sign off on an AVL project until you’re fully satisfied with the results. We’ve brought turnkey AVL solutions to all size performance spaces. It’s our passion to first listen to your needs and then produce original designs that uniquely match your venue’s character and requirements.

Importance of Lighting in Theater

One important aspect of any AVL installation where Illuminated Integration’s design-build philosophy really pays off is lighting design for theaters. Instead of providing recycled solutions, we involve our lighting experts at every step of the outfitting of a theater’s lighting equipment. The results fully support the dimensions, moods and movements a quality stage lighting system consistently brings to life. From traditional theatrical performances to an avant-garde musical group’s riveting show, you give audiences incredible and memorable evenings by incorporating stage lighting best practices into a custom-designed, expertly installed system.

Importance of Acoustics in Theater

Interestingly, acoustic design for theaters has been going on since the design of the first amphitheater in ancient Greece. Clearly, the human ear is a fine instrument of perception that can immediately distinguish between an acoustically good venue and one that doesn’t live up to expectations.

Sound equipment and the technology that goes with it are constantly advancing. That’s why every theater can benefit from the ability to work with AVL designers who are up to date on the latest sound equipment breakthroughs and architectural features that influence acoustics. This helps ensure everyone in the house can hear performances equally well, regardless of their seat. You can even make better decisions regarding matters like choosing the perfect wireless microphone when you can count on the advice of an AVL professional who’s vendor agnostic and has the best interest of your performance space in mind.

Tyler and Mike from Illuminated did a superlative job with our Frederico Theater. They started the project soon after signing the contract, they met every deadline, they had no change orders, they communicated clearly and often and their training sessions were superb. We could not have asked for a better partner for Holy Ghost Prep’s Frederico Theater.

At Dorney Park we have a 200’ tall attraction that had an antiquated lighting system. It was inefficient, and static color changes would consume a large amount of time from our team. Illuminated Integration proposed a solution utilizing technology from SGM Lighting for our attraction. The tower is not only much brighter than before, but now it […]
