Niavac, the largest independent audio visual integrator in Northern Ireland, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the prestigious international InAVation Awards 2017.

With entries from over seventeen countries across the globe, the leading local company is the only AV firm from the island of Ireland selected as a finalist in the highly competitive Best Corporate Project category.

Niavac’s entry focused on their delivery of extensive bespoke AV solutions including a unique state-of-the-art video wall for American tech company Cayan in its sci-fi headquarters located in Belfast City Quay 1.

Shining through as a clear contender for the esteemed award, Niavac’s entry was selected by judges from across the AV industry in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The overall winner will be revealed at the InAVation gala dinner on February 7th in Amsterdam.

The locally-founded company experienced strong results in 2016, driven by securing competitive contracts across several sectors, increasing turnover by 35 per cent over the last year.

Managing Director James Conlon, who has over 30 years’ experience in the AV industry, said: “We are extremely proud to have been recognised at an international level. Niavac has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and being shortlisted for this prestigious award tops it all off. I would like to thank each and every member of our team as our recent success would not be possible without their hard work.”

The Cayan project included the design, coordination and installation of 49” and 60” LED Commercial TVs, a ultra-narrow 4 x 3 video wall, a ceiling recessed electric screen, ceiling mounted projector and speakers, USB video conference camera and USB microphones, 55” Television in an Xbox booth and interactive Clevertouch screens.

Andrew McKinley from Cayan said: “All our staff have been very impressed with the AV installation. Niavac gave us insight into what we needed and the Niavac team delivered fantastic demonstrations and a value added package, within a timeline that worked well for Cayan.”

With the global audio visual market predicted to be worth between $171.1bn to $183bn by 2020[1], driven by a growth of conferencing, AV acquisition and streaming media, the future looks bright for Niavac as it continues to build on its success.

Locally founded in 1958, Niavac provides full-service AV solutions including design/installation to an extensive customer base, along with high quality technical support to organisers of large events, conferences and ceremonies.

As one of Northern Ireland’s largest AV-based employers with purpose-built £1.7m premises on Prince Regent Road in Belfast, NIAVAC counts many of the biggest blue-chip businesses and public sector organisations as its customers; including Progressive Insurance, Cayan, Ulster Hospital, Terex Powerscreen, Graham Construction, Titanic Belfast, several government departments as well as education and healthcare organisations.
