Freddy Sampayo

The Smart AV Creator, The Smart AV

Hi! I'm Freddy Sampayo, engineer, teacher, and creator of TheSmartAV. I started in the world of Audiovisual (AV) technology 17 years ago, and I have been part of more than 1,800 projects, yet I'm still that kind of person that all family members come to ask from, what do I do if I forgot my e-mail password, or what kind of TV should I buy? Initially, I was responsible for everything, advising, buying, getting down on the floor to connect equipment, plumbing cables through the wall, climbing boxes of equipment 20 floors in a building under construction, connecting, configuring, teaching, troubleshooting. As the business grew, together with my partner we decided to create a company focused on the high-end market, with the highest standards of quality and aesthetic value. In our country we are recognized as one of the top 3 companies, and we have achieved international recognition for our projects on Homes, Universities, Theaters, Museums, and Stadiums. I joined the associations that bring together professionals in this industry, such as: CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association) oriented to the home sector, in which I was certified as Electronic Systems Certified Designer (ESC-D) and AVIXA (Audiovisual & Integrated Experience Association). Every year, these two organizations hold the most important events in the industry, where major brands make their launches and test their latest developments. I have been attending these events for more than 10 years. Thanks to this experience, I was invited by two universities to create a chair on smart homes for architects and interior designers. Now I had to make a 5-month program that wouldn't bore people with technical details. It had to focus on benefits and tools that they can use in their work. The class was a success! I taught at the university for 9 years and instructed more than 800 professionals. There, I ended up bringing speakers to class for live demonstrations, doing experiments in acoustics, lighting, visiting construction sites and designing their own projects.
