Mason Brooks, CTS

Senior Technology Consultant

Mason brings 15 years of audio-visual integrated solutions design and project management experience to Crux. He has worked in roles that span equipment installation and independent contracting to designing complete audio-visual solutions for multi-million-dollar venues, such as American Airlines Arena and AT&T Cowboys Stadium. 

Mason has dedicated his career to telecommunications, learning and growing on pace with industry-leading technology. He has earned certification as an InfoComm CTS through AVIXA, where he continues to further his education to stay current with trends, tech, and troubleshooting best practices. Mason believes that you have to have a solid knowledge of new and emerging audio-visual tech to guide clients toward the best solutions to fit their budgets. 

One of Mason’s most challenging projects involved overhauling the existing audio system for the Mansfield ISD Center for Performing Arts. This 141,500 square-foot facility in Mansfield, Texas, seats up to 5,500 people for performances, in addition to hosting graduations, banquets, and other large events. The loudspeaker system was only operating at about 60% of its capacity at the time, resulting in major difficulties understanding announcements and limiting facility bookings. Mason and his team developed a custom audio design that replaced the entire existing system and upgraded the venue with the latest technology. The resulting increase in intelligible audio coverage enabled the center to host larger national artists and increase profitability. 

Finding simple solutions that meet both client expectations and budget while delivering excellent customer service are at the core of how Mason does business. He always presents clients with a detailed plan for integration and maintenance that includes insight into life-cycle management, costs, and design options. To Mason, every project has its own challenges that require different testing and troubleshooting techniques to provide complete, functioning systems without any issues.
