DaraAV™ is a New York team of licensed, insured audiovisual specialists, providing sound and video system engineering, design consultations, design/build services, sales, rental, and audiovisual systems installation. We specialize in the New York & New Jersey restaurant, sports bar, hospitality, retail, corporate, education, and house of worship markets. We offer the best brands, practical solutions, and breathtaking designs in audio, video and control system solutions, after-the-sale training, service and support.

Founded more than 10 years ago by owner Jak Daragjati as JD Systems, Dara AV remains committed to delivering technology that’s easy to use while delivering the results clients need.

Our personalized approach to audiovisual installation and systems integration, along with our top-notch customer service, has earned us acclaim and appreciation from our customers. Our client list includes high-profile nightclubs, sports bars, and restaurants in and around the New York Tri-state area, including New Jersey and Staten Island.

We work with an extensive list of audiovisual equipment vendors to provide you with the most choices and flexibility. We promise to supply the best audio video equipment for any job.

When a customer calls us at 2 AM because the sound system in his nightclub went down, we’re right there with a solution. If a boutique hotel needs a projector fixed before a high-profile wedding in their main event room, the bride won’t ever know there was a problem. You just don’t see friendly, personalized service like that in many places anymore.

We promise a clean, professional audiovisual installation every time. Our design and installation technique is like no other. We operate with precision and efficiency to save clients time and money while providing a clean installation. We promise your venue will look better after we leave than when we started.

Every space has different audio visual needs, and great audio visual systems begin with the right, professional design. Our industry connections and distributor relationships allow us the flexibility to design systems down to equipment specifications and for the best price.

Even if you choose a “do-it-yourself” approach to audiovisual systems integration … we can help. Don’t let a limited budget keep you from the AV systems of your dreams. If you have the man power or just prefer the do-it-yourself approach, we’re willing to work with you to help you get it right.

Serving Staten Island, New York, New Jersey and Beyond

Dara AV is a team of licensed, insured audiovisual specialists providing expert sound and video system engineering, design consultations, design/build services, sales, and audiovisual and control system installation.

We serve the restaurant, hospitality, retail, education, house of worship, and corporate markets across Staten Island, the New York tri-state area, and beyond.

Set the Stage for Sales in Your Restaurant or Sports Bar

The right audiovisual systems keep restaurant and sports bar customers in their seats, watching the game, eating and drinking.

The ambiance in any restaurant, sports bar, or catering hall depends largely on the sound, video and lighting. Carefully designed LED lighting systems can dress up drab  decor if your space needs a facelift.

State-of-the-art audio and video systems deliver the “wow” in a new restaurant or sports bar.

Of course, you want to work with a company you can rely on to provide service and support if something goes wrong or your systems need an upgrade. Dara AV is there, from lights on to last call – and beyond.

Audio Video Designs to Make Your Hospitality Customers Feel at Home

Today’s hotel guests expect amenities and technologies that rival what they have at home. From a 65-inch 4K LED to smart lighting, big market and boutique hotels want to create a unique technology experience for their customers.

Dara AV takes our years of experience in audio video design and our relationships we’ve established in the industry to develop the systems you need at prices you can afford.

We Understand Church Sound

You don’t have to be a Christian to understand what creates an awe-inspiring experience in a house of worship today, but it helps. Whether your house of worship requires crystal clear spoken word, or a speaker system that can accommodate musical performances as energetic as any nightclub, Dara AV knows what it takes to get you there.

Raised Catholic and attending mass on Staten Island, we understand the unique needs of the church market, budgetary constraints, and the importance of good financial stewardship. From modern megachurches to historic buildings, we will work with your church leaders, offering our advice and experts, to provide the best audio visual brands to meet your needs.

Technology Education Experts to Guide You

Education is changing. From distance learning to digital whiteboards, students and teachers rely on technology more than ever before. Your K-12 or higher education institution needs partners in technology who can help you navigate the ever-changing landscape, specify the right systems, and offer the training you need to maximize the capabilities of your new systems.

Today’s schools rely on technology not just to enhance the learning experience, but to keep students and staff safe. Dara AV also specializes in the security systems, including CCTV cameras and video monitoring systems, that are a necessity in today’s world.

Started In The Heart Of Staten Island

Staten Island native Jak Daragjati, Dara AV CEO and President, launched the company with the goal of providing clients with cutting edge audiovisual and control systems, fair pricing, and unmatched training and service-after-the-sale.

While the Staten Island, NY-based company has grown to expand our reach and capabilities as AV technology has advanced, we remain committed to the same high standards for quality and customer service. Other companies may take on any job to pay the bills, but we only work with those organizations where we see technology needs that are a match for our product offerings and skillset.

We spec the products we believe are best for the job, regardless of profit margins. Our success is based on honesty and relationships.
