What is a Matrix Switch?

Jul 09, 2015

Is your next event going to consist of multiple screens with a number of video components? If you want your content to be shared everywhere at once or only on certain screens at a time, you’re going to need a matrix switch.

Matrix Switch Options

Depending on the number of inputs and outputs you need, there’s a matrix switch for that. They range from 2 inputs and 2 outputs (2×2) all the way up to 32 inputs and 32 outputs. They aren’t usually meant to be installed by your average-joe, so make sure to hire a professional or at least consult with one before using.

Why Do You Need One?

If you had a standard home theater system, the HDMI ports on the back of your system support the role of a matrix switch. However, if you want your video sources to be seen on multiple displays or even in separate rooms at the same time, then you need a separate matrix switch.

Why do all the hard work yourself? The next time you are hosting a live event, contact the experts at CitiView Audio Visual to take care of it for you!

Sep 25, 2015

You’ve spent hours on end preparing for your upcoming event, don’t ruin it with poor lighting. Now that you have your speech memorized and the screens and speakers set up, allow your presentation to be seen as well as it is heard. Find out why proper event lighting is important below:

If you’re lighting an event space for filming, turning an office into an intimate reception hall, or creating distinct ambiences for separate displays in a single room, you’ll need to consider having control over lighting. Especially when the venue is unfamiliar, having the proper lighting tools on hand is the best way to make sure you’re message is seen.

Whether the lights are too bright, not bright enough, or not focused in on the right area it can make it very difficult for your audience to see what’s going on behind you. Event lighting is one of the most important aspects of an event, it can change the entire feel of your space and should be carefully thought out and executed as the powerful tool it is.
