RDI’s Audio Engineering team not only provides a varied range of audio and visual services for schools, universities, and institutes of higher learning, but our team is constantly keeping up with the newest certifications and vendor relationships. This dedication allows our team to provide the best possible solutions and prices for your specific project. Whether in a classroom, auditorium, gymnasium, theater, performing arts center, or on an athletic field, sound clarity and visual appeal have been proven not only to enhance communication but also assist in the audiences’ overall experience.
We're proud to be locally owned and operated and want to thank all of our satisfied Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota school districts and university clients. Our team has completed hundreds of educational projects from football fields to gymnasiums and classroom A/V projects. We continue to enjoy the opportunity to model, engineer, and deliver world-class systems right here in the Midwest.
Sound systems for schools are designed to ensure that everyone in a given space can hear the message clearly. As your school considers installing a new system or upgrading its current sound system, it is worth spending some time with the professionals at RDI to design a system and determine what’s needed to meet your goals.
Studies have shown that a person’s ability to listen can have powerful effects on their ability to comprehend a message or gain the most from a performance. Invariably, the ability to hear is directly affected by the acoustic make-up of the room. Acoustical treatments can significantly improve the intelligibility of the sound in your school's gymnasium, auditorium, or music room. Our staff can simulate the effectiveness of acoustical solutions by utilizing computer-aided modeling and recommend the best course of action to improve sound quality.
Our staff has designed and implemented hundreds of sound reinforcement systems for gymnasiums, auditoriums, theaters, and athletic facilities. Regardless of the venue, our approach is the same; to provide clients with a system designed to match the facility, goals, and budget. If your school is building or remodeling, our professionals will work with your architects to ensure that the initial design for your facility is acoustically correct. This service will help your school prevent costly post-construction changes.
RDI utilizes computer-aided modeling techniques to examine various system components before actually installing them in a facility. This technology gives us the ability to determine such items as speech intelligibility, direct to proper reverberation ratios, sound pressure levels, coverage patterns, proper aiming, and much more. Regardless of your chosen project, all of our systems feature state-of-the-art control interfaces for system integration, ease of use, and system processing.
