History

For nearly 2 decades, we have served the Southeast.

My name is Steve Schnugg and I founded Synergy Multimedia in 2001 while finishing my B.S. in Business Management degree at Georgia Tech. For as long as I can remember, I have loved technology. That love evolved into a passion for designing solutions that harness technology to enhance peoples' lives. Nearly two decades on, I still love what I do, whether it's saving you 5 minutes during your day, helping you feel safe in your own home, setting the mood with lighting for an intimate dinner, or taking you to another world through the latest cinematic masterpiece.

I believe that personally serving my clients is the best way to design, install and support automated AV systems. I work hard to make sure there's nobody that has more knowledge about any system that we provide. Consequently, I'm confident that we are consistently offering the absolute best advice and we strive to always do so for the right reasons.

In 2019, we reinvented Synergy Multimedia to our new brand of KINETIQ as we look forward to the next two decades of service.

I invite you to contact us today for a confidential, personal consultation on your next project.
