Company History

Langie Audio Visual Systems was established by Mr. Michael Langie in 1970 and incorporated in the State of New York in 1975. Mr. Langie grew the business into a successful source for audio visual rental services, transfer services and slide projector repair. The company quickly became an authorized repair center for Eastman Kodak and continued to service and repair Kodak's slide projectors through 2010 becoming one of the last repair centers in the country.

In April of 2004 the business was acquired by one of its engineers, Mr. Ed Ali. Under new ownership and as technology rapidly progressed, Langie Audio Visual Systems' main line of business progressively evolved into providing Rochester's leading businesses and organizations with audiovisual system integration.

Langie Audio Visual Systems is a fully certified systems integrator and programming source. We make our imprint on the Rochester area and beyond through impressive Smart classrooms, auditoriums, training facilities and many other commercial installations.

Currently our company still provides rental equipment and services to local hotels, conference centers, membership clubs, event planners and more. We also offer audio visual system design, integration and installation. We take your thoughts, ideas and needs to build a live, state-of-the-art full functioning system.
