Visual Word Systems

New York City Based Full Service Audiovisual

Production & Equipment Rental

Visual Word Systems (VWS) has been providing professional audiovisual equipment and services to the event planning and production communities since 1981.

Visual Word Systems (VWS) was founded in 1981 in White Plains, NY by Ike Eckstein and Ed Boyle. After just a few years the business moved to Midtown Manhattan where it continues to live today. In 2019, VWS became a division of Event & Meeting Technology, Inc., and in 2020 expanded its production services to include virtual and hybrid events.

Over the course of time, Visual Word has seen the development of presentation technology from its infancy of overhead and slide projectors to its current state of LED and laser technology, and remote meetings around the world.

Technology changes, but your production partner doesn’t have to. Our team prides ourselves on our focus on results and our long term client relationships.

We’ve been a part of the NYC audiovisual and production community for over 40 years, and we look forward to helping you on your next project!
