ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS ''AUDIO VISUAL EQUIPMENT'' AND SHARES SOME USEFUL INFORMATION

AV EQUIPMENT HIRE

AUDIO VISUAL EQUIPMENT HIRE FROM LONDON'S INDUSTRY LEADING SUPPLIER ON TOUR EVENTS

Audio visual (AV) equipment is a crucial element of so many events. Contrary to popular belief, AV installations are required for all types of events, not just conferences! Technically, an AV setup is probably appropriate for all types of event. It doesn’t matter if you’re putting on a large-cap music festival or a small-scale business meeting. You’ll need to hire equipment that falls under the AV umbrella.

 

Here at On Tour Events, we have been providing AV hire services for over 20 years. We have worked hard to develop our reputation as an industry leader in the UK, and today we serve a client base that spans all industries.

 

So before we run through the different types of audio and visual equipment we can supply to you, it’s worth running through the specific types of event most likely to require our AV services.

 

+WHAT EVENTS BENEFIT FROM AV EQUIPMENT HIRE?

 

Well, truth be told, almost all events benefit from AV equipment. In the traditional use of the word, the corporate event setting is where AV installations are most frequently put together. There’s perhaps nothing more iconic than the projector and screen combination when it comes to AV installations.

 

Perfect for conferences, product launches, business presentations, fashion events, exhibitions, and even personal events such as weddings and birthday parties, the projector and screen combo is, in many ways, the original torchbearer for AV installations.   

 

But technology has moved on, and the terminology has followed suit. Today, the term “audio visual” refers to anything that fits in those two respective categories. In other words, anything that emits audio or visual media, or both. So it could be that you wish to hire a large TV screen, since it’s both audio and visual, this device alone could be enough for your sales pitch to investors, for example.

 

But the list is extensive. For instance, LED screens paired with industry-leading sound systems from d&b audiotechnik is another example of an AV installation used by many conferences and award shows these days.

 

Thus, since the term has now become all-encompassing, so have the types of events that can benefit from hiring this specific type of event equipment, which include but aren’t limited to:

  • Conferences

  • Awards ceremonies

  • Weddings

  • Birthdays

  • Exhibitions

  • Fashion events

  • Live sporting occasions

  • Outdoor cinemas

  • Festivals

  • Music concerts

  • Gala dinners

  • Education events

  • And many more…

 

There’s hardly an event type that doesn’t require some form of AV equipment. So now we’ve run you through the numerous events that benefit from an engaging and immersive AV installation, let’s look at the specific types of AV equipment we can supply you with for your event.

+HIRE SCREENS OF ALL DESCRIPTIONS FOR YOUR EVENT

 

Here at On Tour Events, we stock screens of all shapes, sizes and technologies. For starters, we stock a number of TV screens in several sizes starting at 50” and progressing at 5” intervals up to 110”. These are best suited to smaller events such as business presentations, sales meetings, and small conferences.

 

But many of you will be looking for something even bigger and more impactful. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Firstly we have screens for projectors in numerous sizes, spanning several feet. When hired with a projector, these screens are a perfect fit for medium and even large conferences.

 

Other events that work well with projectors screens include award ceremonies and product launches. We would personally recommend integrated sets and screens, which allow us to blend in your screens seamlessly with your set, giving your event a professional edge.

 

Finally, we have our cutting-edge 3.9mm pixel pitch LED screens. These screens are made of LED video panels and so can be configured to your preferred specifications. We can, of course, advise you to ensure that you choose dimensions that are going to do your content justice.

 

+AUDIO EQUIPMENT HIRE

 

Of course, visual equipment is only half of the AV equation. You need to hire cutting-edge sound equipment solutions to ensure that you give your event attendees immersive audio that matches the stunning visuals.

 

The good news is that we excel in this department too. We have all manner of sound equipment available for hire – including stage monitors, line arrays, subwoofers, amps, PA speakers. We also have industry-leading wireless microphones from Shure, and we also supply MIDAS and Yamaha mixing consoles to balance everything nicely.

 

When we first started all those years ago, we were sound equipment only, and it shows. We’ve continually reinvested our profits over the past few decades into the latest and greatest sound technology, and today we’re proud to have amassed one of the most extensive sound equipment inventories within Europe.

 

+LIVE STREAMING & BROADCASTING EQUIPMENT

 

The most significant AV trend of the 2020s has undoubtedly been live streaming, webcasting, or live broadcasting. While borne out of a necessity when crowds of people couldn’t meet, the benefits of live streaming have been so great that it’ll be here to stay long after our lives return to normal.

 

Here at On Tour Events, we can help you expand your local event’s reach to an international audience with our live streaming equipment. We have invested in the latest Blackmagic and Canon cameras, and we have both hardware and software video encoders for streaming.

 

We can work with any (yes, ANY!) live streaming platform, and we even have a purpose-built live streaming studio available for you to use for your virtual and hybrid events.
