How To Project The Best Image

Sep 10, 2015 by Steve Rick in  Uncategorized

Not happy with the way your equipment is projecting images? There are lots of factors that determine the quality of the image on the screen, including resolution and the size of the room. But if you want to display the best image possible, it may be time to give up that old bulb and switch to a laser light source or wireless connectivity.

Why Switch to a Laser?

Laser light sources offer a number of benefits when compared to standard lamp models. They have a much longer lifespan, up to 20,000 hours, and require much less maintenance. This will help you keep costs down and you won’t have to purchase new equipment as rapidly as before.

In addition to the lifespan and maintenance costs, laser light source technology also offers “brighter, purer, more intense images.”

Ditch The Wires

Another aspect that’s making a big impact in the projector market is wireless connectivity. During a time when technology is changing just about every single day, it only makes sense to be able to connect a projector to smartphones, tablets and laptops without the use of wires.

How To Test Speaker Wires and Connections

Jul 08, 2015

What’s one of the most common problems with speakers? Their wires get tangled up in a pile and the hardest part is figuring out where they are supposed to go. But you don’t have to spend hours untangling the mess, you can trace the wires with common household batteries.

Speakers and their wires have a positive and negative polarity and so do batteries. Therefore you can hold one speaker wire to one of the batter terminals (using AA or AAA) and hold the other wire to the remaining terminal to find out where they are supposed to go.

To do this, take one of the wires and repeatedly touch and disconnect it from the terminal. You should hear a static sound each time the wire touches the terminal and this will allow you to identify the speaker. It’s a good idea to label each wire with is corresponding speaker so you won’t get them mixed up again.

Ability To Connect

Whether it’s a tablet, smartphone or laptop it’s important for your clients to be able to connect to your display equipment. Still using a flip chart to show graphs and notes? Sorry, this isn’t going to work any longer. Switch to a projector with HD display today and see the difference.

Collaboration Is Key

Need to get on a video call with clients or business partners across the globe? Is your conference room equipped with web streaming technology? Working collaboratively has never been easier as long as you have the right tools.

Collaboration in the Conference Room

Nov 06, 2015

The ways in which businesses and clients communicate have taken on a whole new shape in the last couple of years. With widespread innovations in technology, companies are now able to communicate in real-time with people across the globe. That in mind, it’s vital to improve the audio and visual components in your conference room.

Web Conferencing

When you are doing business across the country or across the globe, it’s difficult to get everyone in the same physical location. Thanks to web conferencing, we now have the ability to set up meetings any time of day as if everyone was face-to-face. But you can’t host a successful web conference without the right equipment. If you don’t have the capabilities of multi-camera switching, picture-in-picture or a content delivery system you’re missing out.

Audio

A few years back, a webcam with a pinhole mic was enough to get the job done. However, technology has evolved since then and audio transmission is much clearer. But this means you’ll need a higher quality mic. Don’t worry, we’ll take care of that for you!

Video

If you have web conferencing software and a decent mic, it won’t do you much good without a quality camera. Failing to use an HD camera with proper background lighting can make your company look unprofessional and outdated.

At CitiView Audio Visual we understand that meetings pop up and presenters’ needs change on-site. Our staff will respond quickly and professionally so give us a call at 212-632-5196.
