Design & Installation

With having over 6 decades of experience in the realm of professional audio, it only seemed like a natural fit for Masque to create a Design & Installation division. Masque has had great success in working with some of the finest acousticians and AV designers in the country, while also designing custom creations of our own. We take pride in these partnerships and in the outcome of complex, state-of-the art AV integrations. You can find some examples listed below.

Masque offers consultation, design and integration services, system integration, in-house engineering and AutoCAD drafting, project management and training. We are fortunate to have long-standing relationships with the highest quality manufacturers of pro-audio equipment and we are able to pass down the savings to our clients. And you can find our work in theaters, concert halls, educational facilities, sports complexes, night clubs, recording studios and houses of worship throughout the country.

Our list of projects includes but is not limited to:

Brooklyn Technical High School

Built in 1933, Brooklyn Tech is home to the third largest auditorium in New York, second only to Radio City Music Hall and the Metropolitan Opera House.  Featuring seating for 3,100 and two balconies, the auditorium underwent a 2010 architectural makeover designed to preserve the hall's 20th century elegance.  The Masque Sound upgrade, meanwhile, brought the audio capacity up to 21st-century, professional-caliber production standards.

Lincoln Center's Claire Tow Theater

The new 23,000-square-foot, two-story state-of-the-art facility is home to a 112-seat theater and dressing rooms, as well as rehearsal and office space for Lincoln Center Theater staff and outdoor terrace surrounded by a green roof.  This new addition to the facility further’s LCT’s programming initiatives, which are dedicated to producing the work of new artists and the development of new audiences.  Masque Sound worked closely with Yorke Construction as well as design firm Jaffe Holden and Tri-State AV union electricians for the project.  

54 Below

Located below what was once the legendary nightclub Studio 54, 54 Below aims to provide an unforgettable New York nightlife experience, combining performances by Broadway’s best with world-class dining in an elegant setting.   54 Below features up to three shows nightly as well as a late-night lounge.  Accommodating 144 people in the main dining room, with all tables situated no more than 24 feet from the stage, the facilities include the capability to broadcast and record audio and video.

Dimenna Center for Classical Music

Home for the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the DiMenna Center was constructed on the first three floors of a six story building shared with Baryshnikov Arts Center on West 37th Street in New York City. This new complex is used for music rehearsal, recording, broadcast, teleconferencing, educational and streaming purposes. Designed by Akustiks, LLC, principal designer Anthony Nittoli stated that “we were confident that Masque Sound’s skill set and attention to detail were a perfect match for Orchestra of St. Luke’s needs.”

Rockland Ballpark

Masque Sound acted as the AV integration consultant for the Provident Bank Park, a multi-zone, multi-input system design allowing the ballpark the flexibility to control inputs and overall level in specific zones. Masque worked hand-in-hand with Mehl Electric to facilitate the in-house rack build, production of drawing package, and site supervision as the speakers, racks and wire were installed by Mehl.

The New Victory Theater

A staple of Times Square theaters since its grand reopening in 1995, the New Victory received a substantial audio upgrade in August, 2010. With the addition of new wire to existing A/V panels the new d&b speaker system has provided the NVT with unparalleled flexibility to offer visiting production companies.

St. Bartholomew’s Church

St. Bartholomew’s Church is a New York City historical landmark, with the present location serving Manhattan since 1918. In November of 2009, Masque Sound was approached to install an updated sound system designed by Anthony Nittoli of Akustics. Dennis Durney, Director of Facilities, states that Masque was “cooperative and flexible in their approach of wiring and working around our schedule. Your organization is the best contract service group I have had the pleasure of working with.”

Husson University

Husson University recently constructed Gracie Theater, a 500-seat state-of-the-art performing arts center, and hired Masque as A/V installer for the project. The Gracie is an intimate theater with balcony, orchestra pit, oversized stage, fly space and exceptional acoustical properties, five miles of wiring plus expansive audio and lighting control systems.

The NYU Steinhardt Schools’ James L. Dolan Music Recording Studio

New York University is well-known for their School of Music and has updated their 6th floor recording and audio research facility. In addition to adding equipment normally associated with a recording studio Masque also incorporated an intricate Crestron control system. The system allows the user to have complete control over video, camera control and several other aspects of the system with the use of a single remote.
