About Us

Hi, my name is Steve Bateman I am the owner of Master AV Services

I started out in 1979 as a TV and Video Engineer.  In 1982, I opened a retail outlet called Bateman Television, selling consumer electronics including TVs, Hi Fi, car audio systems and car alarms.  We moved into different fields of servicing TV, video, Hi Fi, microwaves and repairs, carrying out work for trade and the general public.  By 1996, we closed the retail side and just concentrated on service repairs, home tuning and installations.

The installation work grew as we moved into the new millennium and consumer electronics became ever more complicated with the arrival of Plasma, DVD, home cinema and digital television.  Although I still maintained the repair side of the business, I decided to set up a company specialising in audio visual installation work. Master AV Services Ltd was registered on 29th January 2001, company registration no. 4149669.

The repair business was in decline and by 2005, as flat screens and home cinema became more affordable, I decided to sell the Bateman Television business and dedicate my efforts in the emerging market of  audio visual installations. Our clients include residential homes, schools, churches, offices, retail outlets, hotels and pubs.  In early 2007, I expanded taking on more installers to cover most of England and Wales.  I still kept a hands-on approach and like to get out a least once a week on installations and often ring back clients after the installations to make sure the highest standards are being maintained.

We can design and supply all types AV equipment including Home cinema surround sound, commercial sound systems projectors Large screen TV up to the latest 4k 100″models,   we take time and pride in our work and believe the basis of running a successful business is good communication I am always personally available any time to help with a current project or one of our past AV installation’s.

As part of our installation we design  best possible method of connection, depending on your existing equipment, whether that be Sky,Virgin, DVD home cinema, Sonos mulitroom audio ,projection or the latest gaming systems such as  Xbox one or Sony PS4 etc. We will also check and configure, if necessary, the settings on existing equipment to make sure they match the inputs used, also advising on future connections such as super high def 4K media streamers and wired and wireless home networks s, Master AV services will always strive to ensure  that you get the very best performance from your Audio visual  set-up.
