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.

When it comes to audio visual equipment in New York City, the experts at CitiView Audio Visual have you covered. You’ve got enough to worry about, let us set up your next meeting or event.

The Early Days

When audio and video streaming first came into play in the late ‘90s, it wasn’t all that fun. Depending on the speed of your computer and internet connection, you could spend more time watching a black screen, or at the word “buffering”, than you actually spent watching video. But as technology has evolved, the streaming process is much more user-friendly today.

How It Works

In a nutshell, information travels in the form of satellite signals or radios waves to your electronic device. This way you can watch and listen to what’s going all across the globe in real-time.

Our Services

At CitiView, we offer expert webcasting, recording and video production services. Our Multi Camera Switching, Picture-in-Picture and Content Delivery features allow you to captivate any audience whether they’re down the road or across the ocean. Live streaming your wedding is the perfection solution for any of those “distant relatives” that can’t make it for your special day.

Interested in these services? Give the experts at CitiView Audio Visual a call today at 212-632-5196 to find out how we can make your wedding the most beautiful and the most memorable day of your life!

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.
