Sound Stage Systems: Creating Enveloping Ambiance through Next-Gen AV Systems

Karl Kieslich, CEO
From the moment you step into a casino or a nightclub, three aspects are bound to capture your attention—lighting, sound systems, and visual effects. Hospitality venue owners leverage modern lighting, sound, and video systems to create an aesthetically attractive and inviting environment for their guests. This underscores the importance of a reliable audiovisual (AV) solution provider that is equipped to address the distinct needs of clients. While there are several players in the market specializing in AV systems, very few can boast of end-to-end AV services like Sound Stage Systems.

With more than 40 years of experience in the AV systems industry, Connecticut-based Sound Stage Systems serves as a one-stop-shop for all AV needs, offering system design, installation, and service across the country. “We offer a complete turnkey solution for our clients. We not only install the sound, lighting, and video systems, we also design the interior of the venue and offer competitively priced financing and equipment leasing,” says Karl Kieslich, CEO at Sound Stage Systems. The company helps transform the ambiance of any nightclub, restaurant, bar, or adult club with state-of-the-art systems.

From designing the layout for the venue to installing the most suitable sound and lighting systems, the company offers a single point of contact for its clients. For instance, when a client approaches Sound Stage Systems to design an ultra lounge, the company proposes a layout for the bar, dance floor, and sound and lighting systems. At the start of every project, the company assigns a lead designer, a lead engineer, and a crew chief who communicate with the client throughout the project. Clients can reach out to these contacts 24/7 via text, call, email, or any other medium of communication. This approach streamlines the entire process, accelerates construction, and enables end-users to get their business up and running as quickly as possible.

At Sound Stage Systems, every project starts with a site inspection. With each client demanding a different vibe for their venue, the company constantly innovates its designs to meet their unique needs. To this end, Sound Stage Systems focuses primarily on two kinds of lighting—architectural and architainment. While architectural lighting includes chandeliers and recessed lighting, the latter is a combination of architectural and entertainment lighting that sets the mood for the venue. These lightings enable hospitality venue managers to change the ambiance with a flick of a few switches. A lunchtime venue can be quickly transformed into a nighttime entertainment venue.
Sound Stage Systems demonstrated its capabilities while helping one of its clients design a venue that was a family-friendly restaurant by the day and attracted an adult crowd after sunset. The client operates multiple restaurants across the U.S. and has several more slated to open over the next four years. Sound Stage Systems enabled the client to achieve the desired outcome using sound, lighting, video, and interior design to create the perfect ambiance for two very different uses.

Standing out in the AV industry with decades of experience, Sound Stage Systems attracts a significant number of customers through client referrals. The company also participates in national trade shows focused on restaurant and entertainment venues. The exceptional quality of work offered by Sound Stage Systems is exemplified in the recognition it receives at these shows.

“As the saying goes in our industry, ‘You are only as good as your last install.’ You have to constantly recreate, redesign, re-engineer, and evolve,” notes Kieslich. To live up to the clients’ expectations and exceed them, Sound Stage Systems relies on its talented staff consisting of certified lighting, sound, and video professionals with a minimum of ten years of experience in the field. For the future, Sound Stage Systems aims to take on more projects and continue creating innovative spaces for its clients.
