Company Overview

In the realm of Audio-Visual Technologies, if you can imagine it, you can almost always achieve it!’ – Cliff Janit (MD – Icons AV)

Icons AV was established with aspirational intent. A company that is owner-run, fuelled by our passion to rise above accepted norms, and driven to exceed expectations.

Audio-Visual solutions are often times only considered at the end of a project; an after-thought, necessary rather than crucial, where functionality is sacrificed for a solution that is just about ‘good enough’.

But let’s consider for a moment why Audio-Visual technologies exist at all. Used correctly, specified accurately, and embraced fully, their role in the era we live in is inescapably relevant, central and powerful! They make our lives easier, they connect us with each other and with our world, they astonish us with their dazzling efficiencies, they influence how we live, work and play, how we travel, and yes, they actually save us money!

Our state-of-the-art Experience Centre in Kramerville, Sandton demonstrates these technologies, and merges the worlds of Corporate AV, Home Integration, Hospitality, Education, Digital Signage, Performance, Pianos, and more – all in a unique live setting. Finally, somewhere for Clients to actually experience AV Technologies first hand!

At Icons AV, we challenge ourselves every day to design concepts that not only connect our Clients to their vision, but that elevate their practical experience well beyond. Our creative and dynamic approach frequently opens doors to new possibilities and revenue streams, creating a roadmap towards exciting and unexpected opportunities.

With the correct planning in place, and infrastructure requirements addressed, Icons AV takes full ownership of the integration process. We take on our Clients’ projects with full commitment and attention to detail, investing in both process and outcome, and ensuring that the project management rests on our shoulders.

‘With more than 50 years’ experience behind us, you can rest assured that from the ground up, we have you covered!’ Keevan Bradshaw (Sales Director – Icons AV)
