AV Gear You Must Know – 5 AV Essentials

The audio/visual world is quite unique and you will often see all kinds of electronics that enhance your experience in one way or another, from impressive 10k projectors (which we’ve got access to), to awesome applications like FXP | Touch that helps you engage with your audiences — the audio/visual gadgets are everywhere!

More often than not event planners feel intimidated by all the equipment we carry around with us, not to mention the cables we get to work with, which seem they could extend for miles. All this stuff plus the stress they have to put up with, plus their never-ending to-do list can make the audio/visual production the last thing on their minds and often forget to place orders on basics such as microphones. So, we’d like to think this list will help you keep the essentials clear in your mind so that your next event is successful and as stress-free as possible.

1. Microphones

Wireless Microphones offer quick setup and exceptional wireless clarity for working bands and any type of speaker. With full-featured UHF wireless choices for experienced engineers and professional setups that require powerful solutions.

Definition: An instrument for converting sound waves into electrical energy variations, which may then be amplified, transmitted, or recorded.



2. Mixers

4. Lighting

The fixture that changed the lighting industry. A complete rethinking of ellipsoidal technology, Source Four is the only fixture combining the energy-saving power of the HPL lamp with the patented dichroic reflector for the coolest beam on the market. That means your gels, patterns and shutters last longer, and your performance space stays cooler.

5. Cameras

These cameras are designed to handle long hours of recording at full 1080p resolution. They feature 1/2″ Exmor Full HD 3CMOS Sensor, MPEG HD422 at 50Mbps, Fujinon Lens with 14x Zoom, Interchangeable Lens Mount System, Dual ExpressCard/34 SxS Memory Slots, SD/HD-SDI & HDMI Outputs and Four Channels of 24-bit.
