VIA International Ceases Operations, Customers Left With Incomplete Home Integration Systems
October 15, 2015, Alameda, CA -- After two years of operations, Via International and their six home theater technology integrators have ceased operations and employees at all locations have been let go. After a new financing source withdrew their offer, Via International became unable to continue operations with the lack of sustainable funding. A receivership action has been filed in the Colorado state courts.
Via International conducted business across 19 locations in 8 states, and was even briefly listed as #4 on the CE Pro 100 list. Their ambition was to create a national business within high-end home theater systems integration.
Unfortunately, as the secession of operations is effective immediately and all employee's roles have been terminated, this leaves many Via International customers with incomplete home theater systems and the daunting questions of, "Who will finish this now?"
Audio Images (Tustin, CA) has partnered with other industry leading integration partners in order to assist home and business owners in what could be a potentially difficult transition out of Via Home / International projects.
"I'm concerned about homeowners with half-finished home theater or business projects. I'm concerned about businesses that require proper A/V integration that may have spent money and been left with only wires hanging from walls. And I'm also concerned about the reputation and integrity of our industry," said Audio Images Founder and CEO Mark Ontiveros. "That's why we've partnered with other industry leaders to offer discounts and rapid recovery services to help those harmed by Via's unfortunate collapse."
Audio Images creates high-quality audio/visual technology, automation and integration for both homes and businesses, from home theaters and sound systems, to professional recording rooms and more.
Audio Images specializes in complex project management and project recovery. In order to assist Via International / Via Home customers finish their home theaters, they are offering significant discounts and free consultations to anyone involved.
