The Bright Future of Projectors

Jul 24, 2015

The days of traditional projector lamps are just about over. Lasers are making their way into the machines and bringing lots of benefits with them. See below to learn more about the future of projectors:

Not only do lasers provide the biggest and best images you can see, they last longer than traditional lamps, won’t break or blow out as easily and offer an almost instant on/off. Not to mention, they’re much more efficient.

What can you expect? Laser projectors won’t be much different than what you’re used to now – they’ll create light and then use the light to manipulate an image on the screen. The major difference is what is creating the light.

Just like most technology, lasers are expensive because they are new to the market. We are excited to see where the future takes us and we hope to see the prices come down soon.

How To Fix Speaker Static

Sep 04, 2015

Picture this: you purchase a new set of speakers and are eager to try them out so you turn them on and you hear static. If you praise sound quality like we do, there’s no worse feeling than hearing fuzzy or cloudy sound. How can you fix this problem? See below for a few solutions:

  1. You may be hearing a ground loop caused by another component in the room. Try the speakers in another room along with your A/V receiver/amplifier and see if the problem persists.
  2. Try a new set of cables. Sometimes cables that aren’t properly shielded can cause interference.
  3. Invest in a power conditioner that offers isolation and surge protection.
  4. Connect the speakers themselves into the main L/R outputs of the receiver, if they sound fine you know it’s not a problem with the speakers.
  5. Check to make sure no wires are running across another electrical cord, metal duct or any other piece of equipment.

Still hearing static? Contact the experts at CitiView Audio Visual, we may be able to help you out. And if you’re looking for sound equipment for you next event, make sure to call us at 212-632-5196.

Make The Switch To LEDs!

May 04, 2015

Why switch to LEDs? The days of incandescent bulbs are over as more and more people are trading them up for LED bulbs. Longer lifespan, less energy and less heat are just a few of the many reasons to make the change. We switched, have you?

Less Energy 

LEDs produce far less heat than standard incandescent bulbs, therefore they endure much less heat loss. As a result they are more energy efficient, sometimes up to 85% more than the vacuum/filament method used in incandescents.

In addition to using less energy, you’ll use fewer bulbs. Tired of replacing your bulbs multiple times per year? Well, some LED bulbs can last up to 50,000 hours. That’s a long time if you ask us!

The Green Choice

We think the decision is simple, but if you’re still not convinced here are a few more benefits. Even though you may have spend a few more dollars upfront, LEDs can save you hundreds of dollars in the long run. Consider this: even if you spent $100 for a single bulb, you’ll only need one every 10-20 years. Spending less money on home lighting can save you about 7% on your electric bills which will be far more than the initial $100.

At CitiView Audio Visual, we’ve made the switch to LEDs. While still providing the quality and brightness you expect from exceptional stage lighting, LED lighting is not only the green choice, it’s the best choice. So give us a call the next time you’re hosting an event, and let us take care of the lighting!
