Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have questions about our company, what we offer, and where we provide audio visual services? Find answers to these frequently asked questions and more below!
Do you own or source your audiovisual equipment?
We own all of our audiovisual equipment and make it a point to invest in brand new equipment every year. In fact, we have one of the largest inventories in all of San Diego County!
Are you able to produce a 3D rendering and/or CAD that will show me exactly what I’m getting?
Yes – we can provide custom 3D renderings and CAD drawings in the very early stages of planning upon request, so you can be sure the setup is exactly the way you want it before we start the project.
What types of audio and visual productions can you do?
As a full-service event design and audiovisual production company, we offer production design, audio, staging, rigging, lighting, and video/LED display services for all types of events and sizes.
What makes SEAS Productions different than other audiovisual production companies?
Even though the gear we use is our own, gear is pretty much the same anywhere you go. We believe our staff’s expertise, dedication and flexibility are what make us different.
Our company has been producing events for more than 25 years. We started out as purely an audio company and only began branching out to lighting, video, and staging once we felt like we were experienced enough to handle each element in-house. We handle most things completely in-house, from concept to creation, which means we aren’t a middle-man just marking up the price and giving the work to someone else. This can make a HUGE difference in cost and efficiency, but also reduces the stress/hassle of having to work with multiple vendors for our clients.
Do you do an on-site venue inspection first?
Typically, yes. A helpful first step for any project is for our team to go out to the venue or site and make sure we can do what you’re asking safely, effectively, and efficiently. We consider a site survey one of the most important parts of the process; it’s where we get our initial concepts and ideas for your project.
Do you carry liability insurance?
Yes, we are fully insured.
What if I’m not sure what type of setup or audiovisual services I’ll need?
We can help!
Regardless of where you are in the event production process, our team can help you. In the early stages, we can help with the concept development and design, translate your ideas into a conceptualized 3D drawing, and decide together what will work best for your event. Or, if you already know what you want to do and just need a company to bring the equipment and personnel to execute, we can do that too!
How long does the setup of an event production typically take?
Most event setups require at least an 8-hour day, but depending on the size and scale, it can take days, weeks or months. If the event isn’t local to Southern California, we also have to take into consideration the time it will take to ship the equipment to and from the event.
What equipment brands do you carry?
We carry many top-of-the-line brands, including (but not limited to) Shure, Total Structures, GrandMA, Apple, Nexo, Varilite, Yamaha, Barco, Clay Paky, High End Systems, Sennheiser, DPA Microphones, SquareV and more.
What areas do you service?
We’re based in Southern California, but can travel anywhere we’re needed.
