See what we did there?
We all communicate. Some of us communicate in front of students in a classroom. Others communicate on a stage with dramatic lighting and live sound. Still others communicate from one boardroom to another halfway around the globe. Regardless of your communication needs, Schiller’s can help design and implement a system that is right for you.
What sets us apart?
Our People. Plain and Simple. Our staff is passionate about what we do and who we do it for. We take it personal and have pride in the products and services we deliver. To us, it’s not “just AV”. No other St. Louis source has more experience at consulting, planning, designing, installing and servicing audio-visual communication systems.
For over a century, Schiller’s has provided outstanding products and services to our clients in the St. Louis region and beyond. William Schiller emigrated from Germany to St. Louis hoping to find his future in the photographic plate business. In 1892 Schiller’s Photographic Supplies first opened their doors in St. Louis on Broadway near current location of The Gateway Arch. As St. Louis grew, so did Schiller’s.
Over the years Schiller’s has expanded into three business groups serving photographers, large format digital print providers and clients seeking the very best in Audio-Visual solutions. In the early 70’s the company moved to its current location on Manchester Road. Schiller’s continues to serve the clients with the utmost expertise while fulfilling our mission.
Our mission statement: To acquire and maintain relationships with clients who need business partners and resources to help them reach their business goals.

I am writing to express my personal gratitude and deep appreciation for installation of the new audio visual system at our facility in St. Louis. I hosted a symposium “Synthetic Biology and Metabolic Engineering” for our company Friday, April 27, 2018. The invited speakers are world recognized researchers and thought leaders in the area of science. Guests and attendees were from all over the US and a few from Germany. It was fundamental to provide an appropriate auditorium for such an event. The installed system impressed all in attendance. – Tom
Much, much thanks to you. I will reset the projector lamp just in case it would happen again around the same amount of usage hours. It is because of people like you that Schiller’s has been in business for such a long time. Thanks again! – Jackie
Thank you so much!!! You are great at taking care of us and we really appreciate it! – Shelly, District Support
Thanks for all your help, and I would really like to thank your department and everyone involved with making it possible for the installation on 12/30. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You all have been so helpful these past 2 years during this switch to SMART Boards. It has been my pleasure to work with your wonderful company! – Jennifer Jones, Computer Tech
Your installers were great today – they went above and beyond to make sure our equipment was working perfectly. This is the type of great service I have come to appreciate from Schiller’s. As usual, many thanks! – Russ, Private School Technology Coordinator
I am the principal at an area elementary school and Andy was here, installing our SMART Boards. I just wanted to pass along a compliment to your company. Andy did a wonderful job installing them, and not only did he do that, he worked with the teachers and he made himself available to let them know that if they had any questions, he would help them through things. He actually walked them through some things with the SMART Boards. And then when he was done, he came and walked me around and we looked at each one. The teachers were very impressed with his willingness to make sure that everything was ok before he left our building, and I appreciate that as well. I know people always call when they are unhappy about things and people seldom call when they are pleased with things. Hopefully this is a good call for you and for Andy. Thank you for managing your people in such a way that they know your company’s expectations and are adhering to your mission. Again, thank you and I’d like to go on record saying that Andy did a wonderful job! – Nicole
I can’t thank you enough! Your staff has done an excellent job and I truly appreciate your generosity in foregoing the setup fees for the additional installation. We’re thrilled with your service and will continue to send you our business. Thank you so much! – Janet, Missouri K12 Principal
I have been extremely pleased with the professionalism shown by the Schiller’s staff. They have conducted about 500 installs within the district. The team at Schiller’s ensures installs are timely and managed well. In the infrequent event that a problem occurs, they are willing to step in and help get things corrected or components repaired. – Technology Coordinator, Large Missouri District
We have enjoyed the service and responsiveness provided by Schiller’s through our sales rep, Nathan Clark. From the sales quotes down to the installation, we have been impressed by Schiller’s. Their vast resources and great knowledge of how schools and businesses work provide a great asset to our district in steering us towards prudent and wise purchases. We truly appreciate the excellent communications and personal touch that everyone on the Schiller’s team provides. Thanks! – Bruce, Technology Coordinator
Thank you so much for your generous donation of a SMART Board to our school. Winning it was the highlight of the conference for us, and we will certainly put it to good use. The new SMART Board has been installed in our elementary school computer lab where I teach computer science. It is so kind of you to support the education of the children with such a charitable gift. We truly appreciate your thoughtfulness. – Carrie
We’ve found the people at W. Schiller and Co. to be highly professional, extremely motivated and extraordinarily considerate of our school’s special wants and needs. Schiller’s Customer Service is exemplary across the board, from the receptionist to the sales staff to the installers. I would not hesitate to deal with Schiller’s in an old fashioned “verbal agreement and handshake only” type environment. The honesty and integrity exhibited by this company is a welcome breath of fresh air in today’s business environment. Thanks, Schiller’s, for helping to meet our students’ and staff’s technology needs. – Director of Technology and Computer Services, Local Community College
Schiller’s has blown the competition out of the water. This entire process was seamless with little interruption to the school. Your technician Ken is an amazing person and has an incredible attention to detail that you don’t see very often. I would very highly recommend Schiller’s to other schools or anyone interested in a project involving audio/visual. Travis, who also works in IT, sent me an email and said you guys did a great job on the installs. Another teacher who got a SMART Board last year saw the new ones and commented about how much cleaner and more professional the new systems looked. I am very please with the installs and services provided, and I look forward to working with you in the future. Thank you. – Marshall, Director of Technology
Thanks for your excellent presentations yesterday. I appreciated hearing each one and have heard many positive comments from teachers. Scott, I want you to know what my definition of a good teacher is. It is one who will invite another teacher to come up and demonstrate a lesson (vortex) without feeling threatened. What you did changed the whole workshop, from instruction to collaboration, and really opened up dialogue (even with the stressed out teacher). Thank you. I’ll be in touch. – Diane
I wish to express my gratitude for all of your efforts in assuring absolute customer satisfaction! If it were not for your combined effort, our district would not have had a successful workshop…on time and as scheduled with an adequate number of SMART Boards available, nor would overall response to our new SMART Board have been overwhelmingly positive. You all helped to ensure a seamless transaction, installation, and training process, which will be perceived as a positive experience by the staff, students, administration, school board, and community… rather than another unfathomable technology nightmare/fiasco. Again, thank you so much for everything all of you did to ensure our complete satisfaction. I appreciate the effort and time each of you spent demonstrating company and personal pride, as well as the desire to please each customer – no matter how small. You all left me smiling! – Susan, Technology Director
I am in hog heaven. It works beautifully. Not only is the image clear, but the sound is unbelievable. The flash drives make it effortless to let the students have a copy of their sessions. – Valued Customer
