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 Old Is High-Resolution Audio?

Jul 22, 2015

If somebody told you the first consumer high-res digital audio format was made available all the way back in 1948, would you believe them? Some say it wasn’t until the Super Audio CD (SACD) came around in 1999 and others will argue that as well.

I’m sure we can agree that both the SACD and The DVD-Audio (DVD-A) both sound better than the CD, but when was the first real consumer high-res audio made available to the public? You can listen to LPs from the 1970s and be convinced that this is where it started. Many recordings were filled with deep textures, synths, guitars, horns and percussion that were full of detail and most true music fans will tell you that it sounds better than anything produced in 2015.

But what’s the definition of high-resolution audio anyway? It sounds clearer and more like real music in simple terms. So this could be attributed to the vinyl LP that debuted back in 1948 with much better sound quality than the previous popular disk format.

We think the clearest answer is that there is no clear answer. It’s more about how the music makes you feel. If you can engage with the music and it makes you feel great, that’s all that matters.

Keep that in mind when you’re looking for professional audio solutions for your next live event. CitiView Audio Visual has what it takes to make it sound spectacular! Give us a call today at 212-632-5196 to learn more.

Why Is Audio Restoration Software Important?

Jun 24, 2015

Ever wonder what it takes for music, film and television to sound so clear and pleasing to our ears? We can guarantee that the first audio recording is not what you hear as the final product. Just think of how the air conditioning units, electrical buzzing from the power supply and car sirens or horns in the background would sound in the final production of your favorite song or movie. You can thank expert audio engineers and their restoration software for taking care of these undesirable sounds and creating “music to your ears”!

With home recording on the rise due to factors such as low budgets and little time, “dirty audio” is becoming more prevalent as well. Just think, while you may decide to belt out your latest song in your room it wasn’t built to filter out extraneous sounds.

That’s why you need to call in the experts who have a plethora of knowledge with audio restoration software. That’s where we come in! Our audio engineers have the latest technology and know exactly what it takes to make your event sound spectacular. We’ll provide you with the crystal clear sound you have been searching for!

Why It’s Important To Know Your Audience

Sep 29, 2015

Do you know your audience? This is one of the most important aspects of putting on a presentation especially when it comes to delivering a message for your company. After all, the company’s direction and your own career might depend on how the audience reacts. Find out what you need to know before you deliver your next presentation below:

There’s a very fine line between putting on a successful presentation and one that fails miserably. If you do well, you could get a promotion or open up a door to a new job and a new life, but if your presentation doesn’t have the impact you had hoped for you could find yourself in a world of trouble. So, what’s one of the first steps in the right direction? Knowing your audience size and becoming familiar with your surroundings are key starting points.

Whether it’s your friends, a couple of coworkers, or the president and board of directors knowing who your audience is will determine the approach you need to take. It’s vital to understand the level of formality and the types of people you will be speaking to so you can properly prepare.

Now that you know the types of people that will be listening to you present, you should also find out how large the audience will be. This information can help you stay focused and give you an idea about how to plan for the actual presentation. If it’s a large audience, you can prepare to speak clearly and directly with little interruptions, but if you have a smaller audience it’s a good idea to pause for questions throughout.

Where is this meeting taking place? Becoming familiar with the room will help you prepare, especially when it comes to the equipment you’ll need. If it’s a large conference room or auditorium you may want to consider displaying your presentation on screens for the whole audience to see and you might consider a microphone and speakers so it can be heard. Not sure what you’ll need? Don’t worry, that’s where we come in.
