All-new Engineering Complete AV (ECAV) is a powerful yet affordable and easy-to-use AV drawing suite using Microsoft Visio. ECAV’s process was developed from time-tested real-world AV design and installation experience to provide unmatched design, wiring, engineering, and building phase documents. ECAV includes many automated features that empower residential and commercial system designers, integrators, and installation firms to create precise AV drawings quickly with very little setup, database management or training.
Why not use the proposal or an excel spreadsheet to build your systems? For the same reason you wouldn’t use those types of documents to build your home. ECAV is all about visual communication. You can’t build, program or service your systems very efficiently without first having a visual plan. Even movie makers use storyboards, diagrams of sorts, to develop their project workflow.
The AV technology industry has long been searching for drawing solutions. But not much was available regarding AV drawing software and drawing standards until now. The new release of ECAV offers a highly effective, dedicated drawing software solution for all your projects.
A bit of background. Early in life, Dave Tkachuk (Symbol Logic’s founder) noticed that anything worth building required a plan, a design, or a sketch. A grammar school friend recently found a sketch that Dave had created at the age of twelve laying out the plan for building a neighborhood radio station. Throughout his life Dave realized that projects were much more successful by first having a plan. As an audio product manufacturer, he had to create plans, not only to confirm that the design would work, but for his coworkers to know exactly how to build it.
This led to forming Symbol Logic which originally operated alongside Dave’s existing AV integration company. Without any useful AV installation drawings, symbols, or standards yet available, Symbol Logic set out to develop an effective yet efficient AV drawing process and symbol-set using Visio to get the necessary wiring diagrams and documents quickly into the hands of installers. It was an arduous journey which took decades to get it right: creating, recreating, and refining the necessary drawing components and software that would match the AV project installation phases: Design, Wire, Engineer, Build.
Whether you provide systems for whole-house technologies, private cinemas, boardrooms, sports bars, restaurants, or even live sound venues, your ECAV results will always be professional, high-quality, common-sense, and easy-to-read drawings with all the necessary detail to support accurate sales proposals, installation, programming, and system service.
