APi Sound & Visual specialise in the design and installation of projection, display and sound systems; with many years experience in providing solutions for places of worship.
APi was founded in 2003 by Andy Pidsley. His vision to provide great technological solutions suited to the customer’s needs, that are easy to use and reliable is as true today as when the company was formed.
This is summed up by our strapline ‘making technology work for people’.
We pride ourselves on being able to create solutions, when there may not be an off-the-shelf solution. For example enabling a new and existing system to communicate.
We will not sacrifice reliability or compromise on “ease of use” just to win an order.
"Thanks for your thoughtful cooperation throughout the installation work last week. You were able to carry out your work with a very limited impact on our normal activities for which we are truly grateful. Your attention to detail, particularly with our concerns over the impact of the screen and discreet treatment of cabling work, is greatly appreciated."
Chris Barton on Sea Methodist Church
"There have been so many positive comments about how much better the sound is, how easy it is to set up Powerpoints, how easy it is to monitor sound levels and adjust without someone spending the whole service sitting in the corner of the church. Everyone can now hear and see really well. We would have no hesitation in recommending APi to anyone considering a sound/AV upgrade or first install."
Brian North Church of the Resurrection Farlington Parish
"A thoroughly professional service from start to finish. A no-nonsense approach to customer service and installation."
Matt, Bristol University Catholic Chaplaincy
"Thank you to you and your team for all the hard work in getting us to the point of installation. Thank you to Andrew and Adam and the team for all their hard work putting this sound and projection system in. It has been great to work with such a friendly and helpful team. A big thank you to Andrew for his patience and time with us on Friday with the training."
Bill, Elizabeth and Marion St Marys Pilton Barnstaple
"We are delighted with the work carried out by APi. The installation is extremely discreet and much of the equipment blends in with the fabric of our church. This is very important to us as it is a Grade 1 listed building. In addition the work was completed ahead of schedule."
Nick, Sherborne with Pamber Churches
"We received excellent service from APi. We are delighted with the cleverly-designed system which makes a massive difference to the projection of organ sound into the building. I would certainly be happy to recommend your technical expertise and service to others. I believe our system is one which could help many other churches with similar problems (caused originally in the Nineteenth Century!) by the Anglican fashion for boxing organs (and choirs!) into unsuitable spaces not designed for them in chancels! I was also very impressed and pleased with the way your firm co-operated with our organ builders during the renovation project...so that it was all ready to use by the time originally agreed."
Miles, Director of Music, St Mary Magdalene Church, Taunton
"APi replaced our sound system and we could not be more delighted with both the equipment they installed and the way in which they worked when on site. APi were fully aware of the needs of a listed building and went to great lengths to ensure that the fabric of the building was treated with the sensitivity it deserved. Understanding the faculty process was a great help! We are delighted and would recommend APi to any church or heritage building needing a replacement sound system."
Rev Canon Anna, St Leonard’s Church, Streatham
"I can speak on behalf of our Rector, Clergy, Church Wardens and everyone at St Mary’s to thank everyone at APi for the most professional way that our project has been handled since our first contact. From Andy’s survey visit and subsequent quote and the excellent advice helping to keep us within our spending limits but still giving us an amazing Sound system. The Installation was performed in a most skillful and efficient way with great care during the whole time to ensure that we could be back up and ready for services with minimum delay after completion."
David, St Mary's Beaminster
"System sounded really good on Sunday morning! Very clear and fills the space! Lots of compliments! Thanks for all you hard work."
