About RVAV

Founder and owner Gary Gauldin has 30 years of experience in the world of production and entertainment both locally and nationally.

After 20 years of developing and managing one of the biggest AV companies in the Richmond area and producing thousands of spectacular events, Gary created a new company in 2016 with a renewed focus on quality, execution and personal service. A new company to better serve our clients at a lower price point without losing the level of professional gear, technical support and creativity.

Our goal is to provide the best gear needed to cover all aspects of any Live Event Production. By offering the three main components; Sound, Lighting, and Video from a single source we are able to control and maintain synchronicity to all facets of our shows or events. This ensures every event is a technical and creative success.

Full Event Production Services

Decades of experience allow us to understand, recognize and identify many challenges encountered when developing an event. From the concept through the final curtain we offer our clients collaborative consultation, sharing valuable insights to help achieve their goals with cost effective solutions pertaining to the particular audio/visual needs of the event. We provide a full staff to set and operate every piece of gear for your event, ensuring every event is a success.

State-of-the-Art Equipment

Our inventory features the most professional commercial audio equipment available. RVAV uses the most reliable quality gear from companies like QSC,  Mackie, and Turbo Sound for speakers and monitor systems. Digital sound boards like the Behringer X32 with digital signal paths, networked system integration, and wireless interface control give us the ability to create powerful experiences with increasingly flexible resources. If you need one lavalier mic or a panel of 20 handheld mics we have you covered. RVAV uses only Shure and Sennheiser microphones for wired and wireless mic systems.

Award Winning

RVAV was rewarded with three National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) awards in 2022 in three different categories showing our diversity in production and our quest for excellence in anything we do. We were also awarded in past year with two TELLY awards for video production.
