When It Comes To A/V Equipment, Leave It To The Pros

Oct 27, 2015 by Steve Rick in  Live Events

Have you ever set up a conference room or an auditorium for an event only to have the equipment fail when you needed it most? This is not uncommon when people try to do it themselves. In order to have your next event run smoothly and be a great success, leave the audio visual equipment to the professionals.

Background Noise In Recordings

When you’re capturing an event in a room full of people there is bound to be some disturbing background noise. If you don’t have the right equipment and editing software, your content may have poor sound quality and you may not even be able to use it for the future.

Blurry images? Trouble resizing? Can’t find the right input? These are all common problems when it comes to displaying an image on a projection screen. We can help by providing innovative solutions to reach any size audience. Our experts will provide you with the right screen size and create crystal clear images.

Not Enough or Too Much Light

Event lighting is one of the most important aspects of an event – it can change the entire feel of your space and should be carefully thought out. If there’s not enough light your audience may miss out on important parts and too much light can distort images or hurt your audience’s eyes.

Why Is Event Lighting Important?

Sep 25, 2015

You’ve spent hours on end preparing for your upcoming event, don’t ruin it with poor lighting. Now that you have your speech memorized and the screens and speakers set up, allow your presentation to be seen as well as it is heard. Find out why proper event lighting is important below:

If you’re lighting an event space for filming, turning an office into an intimate reception hall, or creating distinct ambiences for separate displays in a single room, you’ll need to consider having control over lighting. Especially when the venue is unfamiliar, having the proper lighting tools on hand is the best way to make sure you’re message is seen.

Whether the lights are too bright, not bright enough, or not focused in on the right area it can make it very difficult for your audience to see what’s going on behind you. Event lighting is one of the most important aspects of an event, it can change the entire feel of your space and should be carefully thought out and executed as the powerful tool it is.

I have a presentation coming up for an upcoming conference and my team has been trying to find ways to make it more effective. Renting audio visual equipment was mentioned and it does sound like it would be beneficial. Though from the sound of this post, we’d probably look into hiring professionals to manage the equipment. I trust the people I work with but I always prefer for things to go smoothly as possible.

I am looking into getting audio visual equipment and wondering if i should do it all myself or hire someone to help me with it. I agree that a lot of things can go wrong in a presentation if the equipment is not set up correctly. I will be buying my equipment soon and learning how to use it all correctly so i don’t make any of the common mistakes.
