“CEI has been instrumental in partnering with us to develop and refine the Main Event brand standard for our audio, video, low voltage, and control systems. No matter how challenging the conditions or demanding the schedule, CEI always comes through.”

“Hi Val, I wanted to take a minute to do something that I’ve been meaning to do for a few weeks now and that is to say Thank You. A year ago when we asked you to take a look at our Sanctuary and pull together a bid for a Projection System for Unity North, your team took the time to truly analyze our space, ask us pertinent questions and came back to us with an option that was not even considered by the other companies we had talked to over the years. As you know the ambient light produced by the many windows in our space had been a detriment to projection in the Sanctuary. Your option of placing the system ahead of the windows made such perfect sense!
Once we had your proposal, we got to work fundraising. Throughout that time you were patient and understanding and answered donor questions as they arose.
Several months ago when the funds were finally raised, your team got to work. I believe they were excited as we were. You continued to answer questions and your team made themselves available for everything we needed. The work ethic of the CEI crew is above reproach and it was an honor to work with all of them – and at times, their patience was quite impressive. We are very pleased with the final product and have received many compliments from our congregation.
We look forward to a long term relationship with CEI as we continually work to improve our programs at Unity North. Please extend our gratitude to your team and please feel free to use this as a letter of reference.”
Diane Glynn, Executive Director, Unity North Atlanta Church

“Ever since CEI took over our sound system a few years ago, exhale has been able to provide a higher quality sound experience to our exercise classroom students. Everything from customized installations, prompt tech support and product guarantees, Rob and Val are the best at what they do and that is to provide complete audio support for our units.”
Fred DeVito, Executive V.P. Mind Body Training, Exhale Enterprises.
At CEI Audio Video Technologies, our customers are our most important asset. We insist that every team perform to their best potential and we work hard to guarantee customer satisfaction. Here’s what a few recent customers had to say:
“CEI did the AV design and construction on Exhale Battery Wharf for us. I wouldn’t bother you with a reference if I didn’t think these guys were rock solid.
Dave and his engineers get the design and construction world, so they are much easier to work with than your average AV guy who doesn’t understand the process beyond amplifiers and speakers.”
Bryan Dunkelberger, Architect, S3 Design Inc., Quincy MA
“I sincerely appreciate CEI’s efforts in providing my company with an audio visual solution that my users and perspective clients can enjoy for several years to come. I came to CEI with a somewhat stringent budget amount and demanding specifications. CEI worked with me to provide a solution that fit my budget while providing an installation to be proud of. The work was done quickly, professionally and to my satisfaction. I would definitely recommend CEI to anyone looking for a professional and affordable A/V solution.”
Brian King, Sr. Systems Administrator, Nurun – A Quebecor Media Company
“I have relied on CEI to resolve any of our AV needs for Holy Spirit Catholic Church for many years. They respond immediately for any emergency or question that the clergy or I may have about our systems. When it came time to define our AV needs for our new parish hall, class rooms and chapel, Monsignor Dillon and I knew we could count on CEI to design a solution that would meet our needs as well as our budget. They coordinated with the architect, GC, EC and mill workers to ensure everything fit together. Most importantly, the AV controls make it easy for all to use – which means our parishioners using the rooms can actually use the AV systems with confidence that it will work!”
Jane Bickers, Operations Manager, Holy Spirit Catholic Church
“CEI was able to really meet all my demands for audio and video. We were able to sit down and configure the A/V system so that all guests could have an enjoyable experience. With their custom designed interface control of the system could not be any easier. The system installation could not have gone any smoother and even months after the sale CEI’s support team is always there for us. I am truly happy with the system.”
Bo Kang, Owner – Tilted Kilt Johns Creek Project
“Not only did CEI bring the scope in significantly under budget, they executed flawlessly – and even achieved additional savings and improved performance when better and less expensive equipment than what was originally specified became available from their suppliers. “Better, cheaper, faster” is the mantra we project managers live by, and CEI delivered on all counts.”
Edward Burdell, Project Manager, Wood Partners

Glenn C. Sierko, Assistant Director Classroom & Event Technologies, Georgia Perimeter College Project

David Palombo, Cherokee County Arts Council
“When you find the right vendor, you ultimately count on them as you would a genuine partner. Over the course of 15+ years – as an operator of a high volume business, or in development of a fast growing, young company, or simply for state-of-the art-solutions for my home, I rely on CEI. When time is a premium, and there are a lot of fast moving parts – I need to know that I can toss a concept or challenge their way, and the results have always exceeded my already high expectations. From creativity, to logistics, procurement, and the install & service – CEI is flat out the very best at what they do!”
Brian Lyman, Jim ‘N Nick’s BAR-B-Q

“The speed that CEI delivers our solution, the willingness to follow up and the ability to work with our unique situations are all reasons why we continue to do business with CEI.”
Rev. Patrick Ballington, Lawrenceville Church of God
“My overall estimation is that, while CEI certainly has the technical expertise (and experience) to do a good job, their strongest characteristic lies in their commitment to the client…in getting it right no matter what or how long it takes. In the end, given the kind of complex system we were creating and installing, that corporate characteristic was the single most important ingredient to the success of the system.”
Kevin Culver, Choirmaster, Cathedral of Christ The King
“Your technicians did a quality job and the engineers were able to teach even unskilled people how to use the soundboard in a few minutes. Everything looks professional and sounds great. So let your staff know how excited we are about the products and the service that we received.”
Rev. Brian D. Wright, Pastor, Northeast Baptist Church
