Our mission is to elevate your special occasions, community events, music performances, and corporate conferences with the most professional, innovative, and convenient AV solutions on Vancouver Island.
We value:

You can trust us to provide you with high quality, reliable AV equipment tailored to your event for an affordable price.        

We are professionals who strive to provide you with unmatched customer service – what you think of us matters.


VIA will get you up and running with powerful yet crystal clear audio in no time. Our portable PA systems are designed to sound amazing while being easy to carry, set up, and look good. Whether you are a keynote speaker or solo performer, our high-quality equipment will amplify speech and your musical instruments with no need to worry about feedback and dropped words – even if you decide to celebrate on the beach without a power outlet in sight.


We live and play in the Comox Valley, so it makes sense to work with local businesses in the community who share our values and complement our audio-visual services. You can even book us directly through Courtenay-based Relay Event Rentals if you prefer a one-stop shop for all your event supply needs.

Find the right AV package for your event.

VIA offers door-to-door AV equipment rentals and technical support for small to mid-sized events (venues for up to 350 people) from Nanaimo to Campbell River. 


Weddings, Galas, & Private Parties

Special occasions at public venues or private locations require clear yet powerful sound to ensure your guests hear every word. Our portable mixing consoles and cleanly designed speakers allow for easy set-up and won’t visually distract from the main event. 


Live Music, DJs, & Performances

With our all-in-one portable PA systems, musicians, DJs, and performers can set up quickly and focus on entertaining the crowd, not tending to the equipment. We even have battery-operated equipment for outdoor venues or instances where you want to go cordless.


Corporate Conventions, Meetings, & Conferences

We have the AV equipment you need whether you’re organizing an internal presentation, an intimate appreciation event, or corporate convention. Our range of portable PA solutions can be set up and operated with or without the help of a professional technician.


Community Events & Fundraisers

Many groups meet in borrowed spaces and need to bring in their AV equipment and set it up quickly. Let our professionals do the work for you so you have one less thing to worry about.


Press Conferences & Public Announcements

If all you need is a mic, stand and speaker, we’ve got you covered. Want to engage a wider audience? We can set up a live feed to a big screen and live stream your event. With VIA, you will communicate your message loud and clear.

Meet Rob

Rob is in his element on stage. Originally from Yorkshire in England, Rob spent many years as a professional musician touring Europe as the lead singer of the band 3milehigh, among others.

Although Rob’s touring days are behind him, his passion for music continues to thrive as does his curiosity for the technology that amplifies it. His wife Chris, who has organized numerous community and corporate events over the past few decades, also understands the impact AV equipment has on the success of a speaker or performer. With their combined event experience and entrepreneurial spirit, it was only natural that Vancouver Island Audio – VIA – was born.


We work with the best in the business.
