Vistacom Celebrates 65 Years of Audiovisual Innovation
The Vistacom team is celebrating its 65th year in business in 2019. Originally named the Daveland Company, Vistacom was founded in Allentown, Penn. in 1954 with a staff of six people, led by founder Jack Ferlino. Starting with the installation of the first intercoms and background music systems in local businesses, Vistacom started to grow alongside the quickly changing audio communications industry. The company installed the first paging systems in town in the late 1950s, set up the city's first and only public air raid system in the 1960s and installed the audio system in Veterans Stadium, the former home of the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles, in 1980.
With the introduction of video technology in installations in 1989, Vistacom advanced as a premier audiovisual integrator in an emerging digital landscape. Vistacom now installs high end, integrated technology solutions, such as video conferencing in hospital settings that allows physicians to offer remote care, small to large meeting spaces with advanced collaboration tools and the ability to easily include remote participants and security operations centers around the world.
“Vistacom has always been on the forefront of technology that makes organizations more efficient,” said Jim Ferlino, president, Vistacom. “But now, technology allows us to do so much more than just streamline. We can now help organizations become safer, create better customer service and equip businesses to be ready for the changing technology landscape.”
From a group of six to an organization of 75, Vistacom has continued to expand within the audiovisual and security markets, bringing new and emerging technology to the forefront, and designing spaces that serve employees, visitors and staff.
“We are thrilled to celebrate this anniversary and thank everyone who was a part of our path towards success,” Ferlino said.
