Did you know that lighting alone makes up about 12% of global grid based electricity consumption? That’s a lot of energy if you ask us. But if everyone makes the switch over to LEDs, you can see energy savings of up to 70%. Couple energy-efficient bulbs with smart lighting controls and savings could soar to 80%.

What’s more? Switching to LEDs can lead to an increased feeling of safety with white light, they provide a better working environment and increase performance both in learning and working! At CitiView Audio Visual, we have made the switch and boy are we glad we did!

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of your live event and LED lighting is not only the green choice, it’s the best choice! Contact us today at 212-632-5196 to learn more!

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!

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.

  • Louis C. (GREY Advertising)

“At Cooper Union we hold many public events in our historic Great Hall and in another smaller auditorium including the very popular “Herb Lubalin Lecture Series”. Inquiries from around the world for an online recording prompted us to find a sponsor and hire CitiView to record and edit our events. In April one of our latest video recordings became Vimeo staff pick in the art category. See it here: https://vimeo.com/124062807. The folks at CitiView are very responsive to the specific needs of our spaces and set ups and took great care to be sure the editing was fluid and professional. Every step of the way these guys are very easy to work with; they’re articulate, reliable and professional.”
