How To Choose A Projection Screen

Jul 02, 2015

Size. Aspect ratio. Material. There’s a lot more to a projection screen than you may have thought and they can be the most vital part of a visual presentation. With so many options to choose from it can make your decision seem nearly impossible, but if you stick to these basic guidelines you’ll be able to put on a crystal clear display for your audience.

Consider The Size

Before you go ahead and rent a projection screen for your event, you need to consider the size of the room it’s going to be in and how many people will be focusing their eyes on the screen. Projectors create a limited amount of light and as you increase the image size, you decrease the overall brightness. At CitiView, we are stocked with projection screens ranging from 5ft. to 20ft. wide so we can accommodate just about any size room.

Width of the Screen vs. Height

Another important piece of the puzzle is the aspect ratio, or the proportions between the width of the screen and its height. Most projectors come equipped with a 16×9 display meaning a 16-foot-wide screen should be 9 feet tall. However, your screen doesn’t have to be 16×9 just because the projector is. There are plenty of ways you can adjust the projector to fill the screen.


All projection screens are made from the same material, right? Wrong. Most basic screens are made from a smooth, vinyl material but there are also perforated and woven screens available. It’s a good idea to speak with the venue to find out what kind of lighting is used in the room because this will affect how the images show up on the screen’s material.

The Power of the Remote

Alone on stage, all eyes are on you. You’ve got a packed house, hanging on your every word. Don’t be the person who constantly retreats to the podium to advance through the presentation. With a small hand-held remote, you can power through the slides with no interruption. Find out why a slide advancer is a must below:

There’s nothing worse than a boring presentation, especially when the presenter has to go back to the computer to move on to the next slide. Thanks to the invention of a tiny remote, or a slide advancer, you will bore no more! Now you can own the stage, or the room, while moving around to captivate the audience.

Keep in mind that tempo is key when running a meeting or delivering a message to an audience and with a slide advancer, you can quickly and seamlessly click through the presentation from anywhere in the room.

Take your presentations to new heights and keep the audience engaged! At CitiView Audio Visual, we can help. Give us a call today at 212-632-5196 to learn more.

Why Record Your Next Event?

Jun 12, 2015

Don’t be like the thousands of people who wish they had a copy of their event to look at after the big day. When planning your next event we highly recommend considering recording it so you can go over it to find out what went well and what didn’t, and that’s just one of the benefits. Find out a few more reasons why you should record your next event below:iStock_000039859106_Large

No matter how big or small your event is going to be, you can never go wrong by having it recorded. Not only will you able to pinpoint positives and negatives to better prepare for future presentations, you can use the content for podcasts, video promotions and even ads on social media!

First, you need to decide what the video will be used for. Is it going to be turned into a tutorial for training purposes within your company? Is it going to be released to the public? This is a vital step because it will also help you determine the type of lighting, audio and sound equipment that you will need for the event.

According to Events Uncovered, “One of the most difficult aspects of recording an event is the audio. Any event that is heavy on talking will need to have good audio to make it worthwhile.” For this reason, we strongly encourage the use of professional audio engineers and expert video recorders. That’s where we come in!

CitiView Audio Visual has the tools and expertise you need to help organize your event. We bring your presentation to life by administering state of the art audio, visual, staging, and video streaming services. CitiView Audio Visual offers cutting edge AV production and recording equipment to make your event a memorable one. Give us a call at 212-632-5196 the next time you’re preparing for an event.
