In 1967, John Bogosian founded Visual Sound Inc., as the professional audiovisual division of The Camera Shop, Inc. one of the top three largest photo retail chains in the country. The Camera Shop, Inc.’s strength in the photo retail market initially helped launch Visual Sound as a key player in the Audio Visual rental and sales industry. Over the years, Visual Sound gained prominence and acclaim in the Audio Visual industry as a total provider of audio visual solutions to the education, business, government and worship markets.

Visual Sound is a highly regarded company with a reputation for excellence in designing and building customized audio visual solutions. Visual Sound, Inc. is headquartered in Broomall, PA with satellite offices in Baltimore, Harrisburg and Philadelphia.
