They were always available and happy to answer any questions we had, advising on the best devices for our use to helping with all kinds of technology issues. I was really impressed with their customer service and their willingness to go the extra mile. I’d definitely use them again. Thanks!”

“None of it would have been achieved without Blackbox-av’s knowledge, collaboration and commitment to deliver the electronic element of our exhibition. Blackbox-av helped bring our exhibition to life.”
Project Manager, Bawdsey Radar Trust
“Combined with Lightbox and the Quiz, we were able to create content that would contribute to the overall educational impact of a visit. We particularly like the e-book feature too. Rhys was an essential part of the design process and we were delighted with the end product that was delivered on time exceeding expectations from a look and functionality point of view."
Curator, The Bugatti Trust
"Excellent to work with"
Exhibition Designer, New Mexico History Museum
“The delivery from BlackBoxAV was as ever, very prompt – next day I remember, and the units are very easy to install with a comprehensive user manual. Just connect to a pair of speakers and buttons or PIR if required, and you’re done.”
Production Designer, Science Projects
“Blackbox-av gave a lot of their time to the design of the touring kiosks in particular, a bespoke item for the project. They offered us a lot of options for design and functionality, discussed the different options with us, and worked hard to make sure we got what we wanted.”
Project Officer, Essex County Council
"Blackbox have been great to work with – they’ve provided guidance and support from beginning to end. The Lightbox software is simple to use which makes changing the content for each temporary exhibition easy. The kiosks have provided an engaging platform for visitors to access information and the Touch Puzzle has gone down well with our younger visitors.”
Collections Assistant, Canal & River Trust
“As guests entered the sounds of Formula One cars played loudly in the building. This had a great response and created a fantastic atmosphere. The device was reasonably priced, quick delivery and worked very well. Bacardi Martini would happily use Blackbox again!”
Marketing Coordinator, Bacardi-Martini
“We were really impressed this end with the software, it’s definitely something we could roll out in other museums.”
Galleries Designer, Angus Council
“The main thing for us was finding a way to embed oral histories in the exhibition in a way that was more interactive than just pressing buttons and forced people to interact with the exhibits… We can’t speak highly enough of the skills and ingenuity of blackbox to enable us to do that. ”
Project Manager, Mencap Cymru
“It has been a pleasure to work with blackbox-av, who have gone out of their way to help and advise us from start to finish (and beyond). We have been really impressed with the innovative AV solutions they have given us, and our visitors have been enjoying it too – leaving lots of great feedback about the ‘lovely audio visual experience’ “.
Exhibition Manager, Porthcurno Telegraph Museum
“The team at Blackbox were very approachable and understood what we needed for our project. Plus, they went out of their way to personally deliver the finished product when we were on a short deadline. A great company for small-to-medium sized projects looking for something tailor-made.”
Project Coordinator, Oasis Cardiff
“I found you guys and you were so helpful, it gave me a lot of confidence and really simplified the installation.”
“The blackbox-av team have always understood our ethics and ideas from the outset to create interpretive elements which always place the visitor first. This was true of our bug hunt, designed to engage with child visitors the bug characters imagined by the team were perfect for our requirements. The corresponding bug hunt packs flew off the shelves with many families consequently spending hours on site to complete the tasks, thereby promoting the Manor’s reputation among local family groups.”
