Who we are

Our Company

Control AV is managed by a group of industry professionals who share a vision of creating a truly customer orientated company where excellence is the norm.

As a Miami based business we provide leading edge entertainment technology to the Cruise, Yacht, Commercial and High end Residential markets.

We are a flexible and responsive service provider delivering the very highest level of technical expertise. We give customers access to the widest range of skills and technologies, while maintaining the flexibility and personal service of a truly customer focused business.

Control AV operates internationally and is set up to execute and manage projects regardless of their geographic location. This allows us to support clients who have properties in different countries or vessels with worldwide itineraries.

Control AV’s facility in North Miami provides administration and engineering offices, warehousing and workshop space for fabrication and test. Our purchasing department has access to all major brands needed to support our client base.

Our engineering department designs and documents complex audio, lighting, video and control systems with drawings produced to American or European (ISO) standards. Control AV is fully insured and licensed.

Co-owners Douglas Ellis and Amir El Yordi are experienced professionals with a track record of successfully securing and managing multimillion dollar international AV contracts.

Our Markets


Cruise Ships

Providing Entertainment Technology to Cruise Ships is a demanding and specialized discipline. Modern Cruise Ships have been compared to a ‘slice’ of the Las Vegas strip, but with one very important difference; the ship moves.

We may see a ship in port here in Florida for a few hours once a week but the rest of the time it is constantly on the move.

Designing for the cruise market means designing for the most demanding environment, for 24/7 operation and for reliably and consistently delivering the highest quality ‘WOW’ factor.


A yacht is the ultimate expression of the taste and individually of the owner and at Control AV, we have the skills and experience to work at the very highest level to bring the owner, or his designer’s, vision into reality.

We can provide full packages or thoughtfully specified upgrades, always designed in a robust, future proofed manner.



Conference rooms, learning facilities, museums, galleries, spas, restaurants, clubs and shops can all benefit from the Control AV touch.

Our engineers work with owners, developers, designers and architects to produce custom solutions tailored to the requirements and budget of the client. Large or small, local or overseas, we offer a truly collaborative service for your project.
