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 Hire A Professional Audio Engineer?

May 11, 2015

There are certain things you should leave to the pros and recording your events is definitely one of them. If you want to make sure everything is captured, clear and heard without any problems hiring a professional audio engineer is a must. After all, you have plenty of other things to take care of during the day of the event.

Why Record Your Event?

Whether you want to use the content in your next podcast, in a future promo video or simply to look back on as a fond memory, it’s always a smart choice to record your event.

Experience Is Key

Why leave something so important in the hands of an amateur? Recording your live events is something that shouldn’t be overlooked and if key pieces are left out, you’re going to regret it. That’s why you should choose somebody with years of experience and technical training, like the pros at CitiView.

Clarity

Want your audio to sound to be crystal clear? With state of the art equipment and technology you’ll get exactly what you’re looking for. This may not be the case if you decide to go with a beginner.

Reach a Larger Audience

You can turn your small meeting into a grand event with live streaming. If you have an important message you want to broadcast to people all over the map, it’s not a possibility. The days of pitching your ideas to a few coworkers in an office’s conference room are over. The same idea goes for presentations, fashion shows and the like!

Real-Time Engagement

Another benefit of live streaming is the ability to engage with your audience. With no delay, your viewers can participate in live chat and ask questions. You then have the ability to respond to their questions right away.

What Do You Need?

In order to stream your event, you will need a couple of things. First, you’ll need a camera. You’ll also need an encoder and fast upload speed to eliminate the risk of glitches and lags. Finally, you are going to need a streaming service and if all of that sounds like too much for you, don’t worry – we’ll take care of the entire set up for you!

At CitiView Audio Visual, live streaming is one of our specialties. Call us at 212-632-5196 the next time you are preparing for an event, and leave the rest to us!

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!
