Evolving audio-visual system design...
connectCAD joins up all the phases of a design project letting you keep track of the components of any interconnected system - from audiovisual and broadcast to IT and home automation systems.
Created by designers for designers, connectCAD allows you plan and update your projects easily in a smooth evolving workflow.
Our software is an add-on to Vectorworks® for designing broadcast, audio-visual, lighting and IT networks, or any other type of connected system. It links schematic diagrams of interconnections and signal flow with cable lists and layout drawings showing equipment locations, all in one integrated design package.
Behind the connectCAD concept is 25 years of international design experience. We take a direct, real-world approach to design, allowing you to easily respond to changes and make revisions with minimum effort. As well as giving you a massive increase in speed and efficiency, connectCAD is fun to use and easy to learn. If you design systems, connectCAD will make your job a breeze and set your connections free!

Michael Jones & Blake Hainsworth from Envision AV, desctibe the project: “The AV equipment at St. Mary's was quite old and dated. They had Barco LCD monitors and a Creative Audio steerable array system, which is a local Australian brand. Both were around 10 years old.” The upgrade took place in phases and Jones explains: "We have been doing patchwork at St. Mary's for a long time until they had the budget to actually invest and upgrade. We decided to revamp the whole system and started off with the control system which was failing. From these we did an audio back-end upgrade and finally moved on to video.”
