Absolute Audio Video

Custom Integration

When it comes to whole home, distributed audio/video systems, Absolute AV's focus is, in equal parts, quality of sound and simplicity of control. We achieve this by having the knowledge and experience to recommend the correct product for its specific location. We understand that the integrity of the signal is paramount in creating a positive experience. This is why we use only high quality, purpose-built cables, and ancillary products. Falling back on our expertise as Calgary's most knowledgeable audio shop, we understand that squeezing the last 10% out of a system's potential can yield impressive--and most importantly, reliable--results.

Absolute Audio Video strives to make the end user's interaction with their AV system as intuitive as possible. For this reason alone, an Absolute AV system is customized to meet the customer's needs; "Cookie Cutter" solutions are simply insufficient in this regard. Our systems are smart, reliable, and functionally elegant!


Building or renovating your home!

 My first recommendation is to meet with a qualified, experienced A/V consultant during the planning phases. This individual will take a look at your blueprints and talk you through the necessary solutions for wiring your home. A true pro will listen to your vision, provide feedback and work their hardest to meet your expectations. 

 A well educated, experienced and connected integrator can guide you into the best design for your budget and functional needs, and leave much room for growth.


The infrastructure for any home automation, control or AV system may be called many things;  prewire, structured cabling system,  “smart wiring”, low voltage wiring, is one of the key components and the underlying infrastructure for all of the other sub-systems you will be controlling in your home.    This is THE key component to the longevity of your system, as without a good infrastructure, just like a home’s foundation, you will NOT have a quality, expandable and upgradeable system.

A few dealers offer a base wiring they install in homes at a low cost to builders, which is minimal at best, but uses Cat5, thus allowing them to state they have a “structured cabling system”.  Other dealers offer packaged prewire systems of  A, B & C, differing in price and quantity of cables in the house.    Still, others will wire for what you are purchasing at the time you close the contract with them, maybe a little more.  Getting a packaged wiring system assumes a lot of unknowns and limits you down the line, for any upgrades to whatever wiring is in the walls.    If you don’t wire for it, you can’t get it.  Our approach and most high-end integrator approach is to wire for any and everything we can, in the appropriate locations for each home.

Lighting Control

 We offer state-of-the-art lighting control systems specifically for homes and businesses. Lighting control systems provide energy savings and peace of mind by allowing you to control a wide variety of lights using intelligent switch communication. Our advanced lighting control system offers increased security by allowing you to set up time-based schedules.

Shading / Drapery Control

With motorized shading solutions, you can easily raise the shades to add sunlight, or lower them to reduce heat buildup and add instant privacy. Shades can be preset to automatically open and close during a specific time a year, effectively controlling sunlight to prevent harsh U/V rays from damaging expensive furnishings. Or if you prefer, you can simply push a button to adjust them when you want, achieving the greatest beauty and efficiency in each room at all times.


In this day and age, it’s important to stay connected. Whether it’s your home or office, we have the expertise to install and configure various levels of networking.

Hardwired vs. Wireless 

 This is the biggest culprit.  Yes, you can do a lot wirelessly, but understand how that works.  If a home has 10 devices on a wireless network, those devices share 100 Mbps of bandwidth (think of bandwidth like a pipe that information flows through. The size of the pipe limits the amount of information that can pass through at any given moment.)  If you take the same 10 devices and hardwire them into the network you get 1,000 Mbps of bandwidth per device.  Additionally, your wireless network plays to the lowest common denominator.  So if you have an older Blu-ray or printer that’s slow, it will slow down all devices on the network.  Of course, you’re going to use wireless devices on your network, but understand there’s value in hardwiring devices when the application makes sense.  The performance is superior.

 Rule of thumb; All mobile and tablets use a wireless connection, all other set-top devices like Blu-ray, AppleTV, and Desktop PC  should all be hardwired.
