IMPORTANT Notice from hollywood sound systems - about COVID-19
To our friends, clients, vendors, and to those in the Los Angeles community we have been honored to serve for so many years — we very much hope you are staying safe and remain in good health during this unprecedented, uncertain, time — paying heed to the guidelines set out by our government officials, the CDC, and health organizations.
As a company that specializes in communications, pro audio equipment, and sound systems, Hollywood Sound Systems is defined as an "Essential Business" — as a “business that supplies other Essential Businesses with the support or supplies necessary to operate” (County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Order of the Health Officer, Revised Order 3/21/20, 13-D, N), and as “an essential critical infrastructure services provider” in the communications and information technology categories, as classified by the CISA guidelines, as per the Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19 Response. Hollywood Sound Systems provides vital communications support services, professional sound equipment, wireless communication, fiber optics, and digital technologies such as A-Over-IP — to media outlets, podcasters, radio, television, broadcast groups, and more.
To ensure the safety of our products and of our people, we are implementing particular precautions: monitoring daily updates from the LA Dept. of Public Health and CDC, following their guidance, including strict observance of social distancing measures, providing access to the correct hand sanitizer and hand washing facilities with soap and water, and keeping ourselves and our products disinfected and safe.
Please note: at this time, until further notice, our doors are kept locked — we do not accept walk-ins. Instead, we ask that you call and arrange an appointment to pick-up or purchase equipment. Of course, we are available to assist and consult with you by phone, and via email, to attend to all your communications and sound systems needs. We are reassessing current events as they unfold day-to-day, and will try to provide updates about our services in a timely way.
During this challenging time that emphasizes physical isolation from one another, we firmly believe in the power of sound to connect us all — to deliver the critical information and guidance that will lift us up and help us move forward.
Steve Harvey has written an article in ProSound News — describing Hollywood Sound Systems, a bit of our history, some of our contributions to the sound industry over the years — and highlighting our Bose Professional ShowMatch DeltaQ Line Array System. Harvey writes, “Harrison enjoys the challenges presented by his clients: “Somebody will say they want to do something out of the ordinary; I rather revel in those things.” This beautifully captures the passion and attitude of the entire Hollywood Sound Systems staff! — Read the full article here!
