About Us

It is important to know about the people who are going to be working with you at your facility. We have taken a moment to introduce you to our team below.
Mark Batts

Mark is the founder and Chief Executive of Operations of Batts Audio, Video and Lighting, Incorporated. Since 1997, Mark has been a primary engineer for sound, lighting and theatrical installs, and he ensures the integrity, functionality, and safety of all the systems that Batts AVL stands behind. Mark holds a degree in engineering technology from Texas A&M University.   

Mark works with churches, schools, civic centers, and theater staff to design sound and lighting packages that are tailored to their specific application. He also specializes in restorations and complicated aesthetic applications. Making time-period drapes along with discreet sound and lighting hardware can make an auditorium built in 1936 look as grand as it did the day the doors opened, but function like the state-of-the-art facility it is restored to be.
