Testimonials

  • Designed AV Solutions brings so much to the table.  Dave’s years of experience and in-depth knowledge of aerial photography, combined with a very professional approach, created a great working experience.  His willingness to go the extra mile while on set also speaks volumes of his character.  Looking forward to working with Dave and Designed AV Solutions again.
  • Dave King with Designed AV Solutions is one of the most professional and versatile UAV Pilots I have had the pleasure of working with.
  • The photos Dave and Designed AV Solutions took are absolutely the best aerial shots I've ever seen. And not just because it's me and my airplane.! It's because you're that good! Thank you again for all of your assistance in making the magazine article come to life.
  • Thank you Dave King and Designed AV Solutions for giving Scott Township the opportunity to document the building of the new Scott Pool.  The work via aerial photographs that were supplied to us by Dave gave the residents, the commissioners and myself the opportunity to track the development of the pool.  Great job!
  • I called Dave King at Designed AV Solutions and could not have been happier. We had some challenging issues such as changing weather conditions, new facilities not yet completed and a tight schedule could have resulted in an awful shoot. But between Dave’s ability to be flexible we were able to pull of amazing and compelling aerial footage. Dave and crew took direction well and were able to work most of the day on their own while still delivering the goods, and were more than open to suggestions when I had the time to direct some shots. If and when the need ever arises for aerials, Dave and his crew will be the first that I will call. Brad Jones Grandote Enterprises
  • I recently bought my first drone - a Phantom 4.  Never having operated a drone before I was determined to learn how to fly it by myself.  I watched hours and hours of tutorials and YouTube videos, which helped a great deal, but I found myself unable to calibrate the compass.  I learned about Dave from a mutual friend, and asked for his help.  Dave is highly knowledgable about all aspects of drones.  There wasn’t a question that he couldn’t answer for me.  I am now in the air and having fun becoming a more experienced drone operator.   Plus, I know that if I have a question in the future Dave is there.
  • Designed AV Solutions did a great job on a difficult listing for me!  With 2 wooded acres and a spectacular house in the middle of Mt. Lebanon, I needed a different approach to advertising this property.  Dave came out with his assistant and in one hour had magnificent photos!  I highly recommend his work!
  • I had the pleasure of purchasing a custom build Cinestar8 heavy lift copter from Designed AV Solutions. I was a complete novice with the Cinestar setup and a bit intimated when looking around all the forums for a copter.  I had called and emailed a few different sources and all were to no avail.  Either way too expensive or did not have the time I felt I needed. Then I came across Dave and Designed AV Solutions and I can say from a buyers perspective I would highly recommend their services. From the very first point of contact Dave has been on the ball at every point.  My newbie questions did not put him off, in fact he made videos  (several)  just for me to help me understand. Shipping was prompt and packages arrived safe and sound.  Emails are answered the day I send and Dave has taken the time to call me personally to check on things. Dave has made me feel at ease with a complicated topic and I would definitely (although it may be a while) buy another copter from Dave in the future.”;

  • When the Port Authority was considering the task of posting photos on our web site of our 54 Parking and Ride lots spread over Allegheny County, we were thinking this is not a very interesting visual, essentially parking lots. Then we discovered Dave King and Designed AV Solutions, problem solved. Dave made Park and Ride lots beautiful and interesting. Exceeding our expectations. We had no idea a lot full of cars could look so inviting.
  • Thanks to Designed AV Solutions for the wonderful job they did on documenting the new Scott Township Pool Project.

  • I asked Designed AV Solutions to come out and shoot my home and neighborhood. Needless to say I have since referred him to every agent in our company. They were  awesome…on time, quick with the photos he turned them around the same day, took exactly the views I wanted and made our community and my home look amazing! I will continue to refer Dave to anyone looking to make an impression on a buyer for any property or for anything they feel needs an amazing view of their event or property! 5 Stars!!
  • Thank you to Dave and Designed AV Solutions for an amazing video of our church. With Designed AV Solutions, we created a video that is now displayed prominently on our website sharing views of our 100 year old church never seen before. Just as importantly, we were able to take high definition images of several suspect areas of the roof and ceiling to inspect for damage that would have required extensive and expensive scaffolding. Dave far surpassed our expectations in quality, professionalism, and creative ability. We look forward to working with them again.      
  • Professional, knowledgeable and they care! I have had the pleasure to have David and his team at Designed AV Solutions produce my 5 hour video series and we have nothing but positive feedback from our customers. They are constantly asking you if you are happy or have any questions and there are never any surprises with extra costs, Dave King is a man of his word and sticks to it. I would recommend Designed AV Solutions any day!
  • I have had the privilege of working with Dave King and Designed AV Solutions during the time they installed our new sound system in our church. I couldn't be more pleased with their work performance and the quality of the new sound system. Dave is very professional and extremely knowledgeable in sound technology. Every recommendation that Designed AV Solutions made was thoroughly explained to me. I would highly recommend Designed AV Solutions for a project in the field of audio/video technology. Please feel free to contact me should you need any additional information.
  • In my career, there are few people I’ve encountered that measure up to the professional knowledge and personal work ethic of Dave King. He is the type of employee that a manager strives to retain for his consistent and reliable contributions, his eye for technical accuracy and his aptitude for doing things the right way. In my role as Senior Director of Public Relations for The Art Institute of Pittsburgh from 1998 to 2011, I was privileged to serve much of that time working with Dave King on projects that ranged from in-house new student recruitment events to large-scale, off-site fundraising initiatives. The college and its students were able to benefit from Dave’s technical expertise, willing hands and sense of humor, time and time again. I turned to Dave continuously raise the bar for what could be achieved with audio, video, exhibition and event technology. Goal-oriented and never one to sit on the sidelines and wait for direction, Dave King prefers to take responsibility for progress and works well with those around him. I have also observed that he is a strong manager of student employees and is proud of his ability to help them to achieve excellent results. I strongly recommend Dave King and endorse his skills and contributions.
  • I have worked with Dave as Faculty at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where I teach full time, in the Digital Film and Video Production department. Dave has been our studio technician, and and does maintenance and installation of equipment in both our audio studio and television studio and has always done a great job. Dave also supervises over 30 workers who work for our equipment office, in addition to his maintenance duties, and does it all well. I have my own freelance audio company in business since 1982 and have been in professional audio for over 30 years. In short I think Dave would help any company with AV installation. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
  • I had the opportunity of working with Dave from 2002 until my retirement in 2012. Dave does it all and is dedicated and hard working. He’s resourceful, has an eye for detail and strives for perfection with each and every task. Dave consistently produced quality work and I’d recommend him highly for your Audio/Video needs.
  • I have worked with Dave in many different capacities over the pasts 6 years. I value Dave's opinion when it comes to video and audio recommendations. Dave considers all options and continuously researches the best available technology. Because of these qualities and an excellent work ethic, I am pleased to recommend Dave King.
