The Entertainment market includes performing arts theaters, museums, visitor centers and sporting venues. Facilities vary by size and scope, are often larger than many other project types and require specialized skills, certifications and licensing. Typically, Nor-Com is part of a collaborative design team of specialized providers. There are often video production, stage and lighting elements that require coordination with our systems for a complete integrated venue.

Licensing is a critical element to ensuring customer safety and enjoyment. Rigging, safety performance, testing and maintenance of large displays, speaker arrays, and interface to building infrastructure, life safety, communications and electrical circuits require attention to detail on every task and hand-off between many specialized disciplines. A technician or engineer, who is certified to administer rigid testing and documentation, reviews our work tasks against industry standards.
