HDMS has what is often a different approach in designing, integrating and building production studios and vehicles: we listen.  Our engineers are “working engineers”, meaning that at least 20% of their time is working on OB trucks and studios as EIC’s, Technical Directors, Audio Mixers, and transmission engineers worldwide.  Not only do they operate the systems, they often create them from the ground up for sporting events, tours, and other live broadcast events.  There is no better way to know exactly what is actually good equipment, and how it is best implemented than to work with the gear on a consistent basis.  Based on decades of real-world experience, our staff is able to help decipher what is solid investment rather than marketing hype.  We take the time to evaluate how something works and will benefit your team; this helps ensure the best match of equipment for your specific needs.

Most importantly, we listen to you.  Some clients seek our expertise to help them make important solution decisions, while others simply rely on our genuine approach to integrating a solution they already have in mind.  In either case, we value your input and take the time to listen throughout the entire process.
