McSquared System Design Group, Inc. is an independent consulting firm providing sound system design, audio/video presentation system design and acoustical design services throughout the world from our North Vancouver office. We are not associated with any sales firm and do not sell any products or systems, our only business is consulting. We are focused on designing the most effective technical solution for the users' needs and then successfully integrating that solution into the architectural environment.

Media technology and delivery systems are used in lecture theatres, distance learning and telepresence facilities, city council chambers, training and simulation facilities, as well as retail or museum multimedia displays... any place where people need to be entertained, educated, or must communicate more effectively. All this technology must be integrated into the architectural and acoustical environment to work effectively. This is our role, to assist the design team in bringing the technology and the environment together into a functional whole, while maintaining the architectural vision of the designer.

An independent consultant represents good value when a significant capital investment is required in sound or video systems. Because we have no vested interest in particular brands of equipment or systems, we are able to recommend and specify the products that offer the best performance for the cost. We also provide objective sign-off criteria for system performance and installation so that the client can be satisfied that the equipment performs as required before final payment is made.
