The Power of the Remote

Sep 21, 2015 by Steve Rick in  Live Events

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.

What is Webcasting?

Aug 14, 2015

How can you get Jim in Dallas all of the information he needs from a business meeting even though he’s hundreds of miles away? The days of sending large files recapping the meeting are over. Now, Jim can sit in on the meeting in real time even though he’s not physically in the building. How? Live webcasts.

What is Webcasting?

A webcast means that you are taking media (whether it’s a corporate meeting or any other live event) and broadcasting it in real time over the internet. The process involves streaming which sends the information to computers or other electronic devices without having to save and send the files later on.

How Does it Work?

Put into simple terms, audio or visual content can be transferred to a streaming software from a video camera or speaker. The content is then encoded and sent to a special server where it is delivered. This is how Jim in Dallas can log on to his computer and have access to the meeting as it takes place.

With webcasting services from CitiView Audio Visual, your employees will never have to miss a meeting again. We offer multi-camera switching, picture-in-picture and content delivery so you can captivate your audience whether they are down the street or across the sea. Call us today to find out how we can help!
