Our Story

Since 1960

The 1960s: On August 1, 1960, Robert and Bette Slye began Robert Slye Electronics, Inc., in Washington, D.C. “Sound by Slye” provided audio systems for large events including the President’s Cup Regatta, lighting of the National Christmas Tree, Fourth of July on the Mall, Washington football games at RFK Stadium, and the Cherry Blossom Festival.

The 1970s: The 1970s the second generation of the Slye family, Stephen D. Slye, joined the business. In 1976, Slye provided the audio for President Jimmy Carter’s inauguration and the July 4, 1976 Bicentennial Celebration on the Mall.

The 1980s: The 1980s were a transition period for Slye, which focused on the burgeoning computer industry, fixed installations, and audio and video presentation systems. During this time Mary Patricia Slye, joined the Slye team. Slye performed a great deal of work for the federal government, the armed forces, and international clients.

The 1990s: In the 90s as Internet technologies emerged, the use of digital control systems became central to the company’s work. Slye became a leader in touch panel design and video teleconferencing.  The late 90s also brought in the third generation of the Slye family, Katherine, Christopher, and Matthew Slye to the Slye team.

2000s: The new millennium was exciting at Slye; with the continuation of work for the government, large corporations, non-profits, embassies and universities. Slye added a new residential division in 2002. More and more people became interested in having custom high performance home theater systems installed. AV teaching and tutalatlige by Slye bolstered and spun employees towards their own success .

2010:  Slye found itself on the forefront of IP Streaming technologies.   IP Streaming changed basic point to point AV into scalable ecosystems.  Slye designed and built the first and largest true streaming system, connecting rooms and buildings  across a campus.
