Celebrating our 40th year

as "the Hardest Working Men in A-V."

What can we dofor you?


The best designed      Smart-Classrooms and  Interactive Boardrooms offer functionality beyond  aesthetic beauty. To keep pace with an ever-changing World, you need a  comprehensive mix of multi-media; think Globally! When designed correctly, an interactive Classroom or Conference Room allows your participants to concentrate on the material without taking notes; because all the notes are automatically saved to a computer and E-mailed to them! No only is that way cool, but the rate of retention for participant's increases by over a third when you do this! Let AVM design your next project; we've got 40 YEARS of design expertise and our results make a difference.


AVM's Tech Team has over 100 years of installation experience! That's why we install systems faster than other firms claim they do and we do a better, more professional job.  A-V Mart has expertise in HDTV & projector installation as well as commercial sound systems. Don't be daunted by the complexity of the technology and the challenges of installing and properly converging the devices, when our friendly Service Tech's can do that for you in record time.


Our Service department's available 24/7; if you need emergency phone support or an on-site  technician,  AVM has the professional staff to get you back up and running fast. Our factory trained technicians have DECADES of experience!  A-V Mart's also the factory service center for multiple brands of Projectors and several brands of LED TV's; so if you need a bulb, call. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction with minimum downtime; Call AVM to  schedule a service call to your school or office for  preventive maintenance or repair. And don't forget, you can also purchase extended warranties for your equipmentat AVM.


At AVM we sell systems that work, not systems that are work! We want you to be comfortable, capable, and confident in a presentation environment, whether that be a classroom, conference room, Boardroom, Auditorium, or Chapel. Our Sales Team has the knowledge to recommend the right product for your application. We'll determine the best projector or HDTV for your needs and budget; we represent a dozen different brands of TV's and projectors so we can give you a truly objective recommendation without pushing a certain brand. We'll tell you the pros and cons of each and what we'd buy if we were in your shoes. That's the AVM difference.

The AVM story

PM, Audio Visual Mart, Inc. is the Gulf South's premier full-service Audio-Visual and Computer Systems Integration Specialist. Founded in 1977 by John 'Prez' Payton, A-V Mart is Louisiana's eldest A-V Integration firm at 40 years and still going strong! We respect our customer's privacy, so we don't name-drop, but we regularly service Corporations, Governmental Agencies, Educational Institutions, and Home-Theater enthusiasts. John's particular skills were needed in heaven twenty years ago, which is when he passed the leadership of AVM on to his youngest son, a second generation 'A-V Guy'. Bruce Payton earned the title "the hardest working man in A-V" from customers and manufacturers in 2001and his commitment to detail on every project is unparalleled; he doesn't take short-cuts and he's an 'old-school A-V Guy', who still uses a measuring tape and hand draws all room design layouts!  Bruce literally grew-up in this industry; he was the youngest person ever designated a CTS, Communication Technology Specialist, thirty years ago! He has decades of experience and doesn't oversell jobs to make a buck; he designs for functionality and user-friendliness over sophistication & complicated...and he's instilled those qualities in his employees. Maybe that's why A-V Mart gets  service calls to fix other guy's mistakes?  'You get what you pay for' and at AVM, you get fast, affordable, professional, friendly, EXPERIENCED sales, service, installation, and consulting design; from mounting your new LED-TV to the installation an integrated projection system in your conference room, from voice reinforcement in a classroom to a complete distributed sound-system in a restaurant, from an Interactive Media Computer Lab to a multimedia ministry system for your Church, at AVM, we do 'dat!'

AVM™ does design-builds of Boardrooms, War-rooms, Courtrooms, Auditoriums, Bomb-shelters, home theaters, bars, restaurants, health-clubs, doctor's offices, & we even do Zoos! We've got A-V covered from A to Z, literally. So when you have a question about anything A-V, call 'the A-V Guys' at AVM for answers, action, and solutions.
