AV Automation’s Beginning

Aaron Reilly (AVA President) was a founder and the Chief Technical Officer for Screen Innovations, an Austin based projection screen manufacturer. As co-founder and director of all product development for Screen Innovations, Aaron brought to market many new projection screens and related products. The most notable product brought to market under Aaron’s management is the “Black Diamond Screen” by Screen Innovations which still today is the most optically advanced front projection screen in the world.

AV Automation was conceived by Aaron Reilly in early 2008 with the desire to bring mainstream Home Theater, Audio and Home Automation a higher standard of customization and simplicity. Working hand in hand with clients, architects, and builders, AV Automation is able to integrate a multitude of different technology systems that work in harmony with each other and offer consumers ease of control from one simple to use interface.

Meat Loaf recommends AV Automation!

Not to toot our own horn (okay, maybe a little horn tooting), but we are so proud of the work we have done for Meat Loaf on his Austin home. We were extremely excited when he contacted us and it is a wonderful feeling to know that Meat Loaf thought our work rocked – even if we can’t sing a 3 part harmony!

“If you’re looking for someone to handle your audiovisual needs in Austin, pick up your phone and call Aaron Reilly at AV Automation. If having someone who stands 100% behind their work is important to you, then Aaron and his team are definitely the right people for you. Just don’t ask them to sing a 3-part harmony!”
