    Hello All

    USL Audio Visual in Ringmer, East Sussex for projectors/screens; Cavendish Communications, Newhaven, East Sussex for cabling.

    Contact Solutions AV - Audio Visual Installations Specialists and Cavendish Communications - Business Communications for Sussex and the South East respectively

    No idea where you actually are though, so might not be of any use.

    Thanks for the recommendations

    I will contact "solutionsav" for a quote

    However I have had problems with Cavendish Communications before not supplying test results or physical topology diagrams. they also left points dead and left us to the last week of the holidays before me contacting them when they were going to come in.

    Where are you in sussex?

    I think there is some stupid Health and safety thing that states you need insurance if your working over a Meter and a half otherwise I would do the projectors

    However we have done loads of smart-boards ourselves, which is really easy. I think we had a quote for £500 installation fee for a smart-board which is crazy for how easy it is!!

    I've used Multimedia Installations Ltd based in Leeds, but they do work over the whole country. His cabling and projector installs have always been excellent and good value for money.

    Contact Paul Dawson (paul@mminstalls.co.uk)

    Tel. 0870 325 8833
    Fax. 0870 325 8877

    Do tell him that Steve from Knutsford says hello.

    We use Safe Control in Louth, Lincolnshire, very reliable and we have a good working relationship with the bloke that owns it, he even comes in and gets his hands dirty some times. They do work all over the country. Worth a shout.

    I never confronted them about it - just stopped ordering - but looking back I strongly suspect they were lowballing the first half-dozen orders.

    Odd that about Cavendish. We have a really good relationship with them and to my knowledge, no problems.

    we have to get three quotes for everything we order these days. The problem Ive found is that you get what you pay for!!!!!!!! we have had a company called astec computing who did a lot of work for us however one cabinet nearly fell off the wall, had cat5e installed over 100m and smart-boards installed at angels. however when we started using them they were good but over time the work became worse.
