Five Tips to Keep in Mind before Purchasing Multi-room Wireless Speakers

Posted by on Jul 5th, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Five Tips to Keep in Mind before Purchasing Multi-room Wireless Speakers

Gone are the days when, in order to listen to music in different rooms, you had to encounter several logistical challenges. You were either forced to move your stereo from room to room or connect long wires that trailed under the carpet. The rise of digital technology has made life easier for music lovers. Now, with multi-room wireless speakers, you do not have to shift your sound system or trail wires across rooms. Because multi-room wireless speakers are becoming popular among users, here is a rundown of some aspects you should consider before buying them. Synchronization Capability — Synchronization is essential in wireless connectivity because you do not want your devices to be out of sync when enjoying music. Look out for speakers that do not lag behind in sound from television pictures. Also, ensure that the device can handle playback for various configurations and wireless environments. You do not want your speakers to work properly in the living room but drift in audio while in distant rooms. Select speakers that a user can optimize for a unique interior sound.   Capacity to Support Multiple Services and Sources — A multi-room speaker system should enable the user to stream music directly from various sources such as internet radio, podcasts, and online music retail stores. A superb system has the capability to play music from all these sources without any technical glitch. Fast Installation and Ease of Use — The whole point why wireless speakers are popular is that they solved the logistical problems that old sound systems had.  A user should take the shortest time possible to connect the wireless speakers to the visual or audio device. A good wireless system should have an interactive and easy to use interface that allows one to make playlists and share music with other users.       Durability and Aesthetics — Many people who purchase wireless speakers may opt to sacrifice durability for aesthetics. A good wireless speaker gives you the ability to enjoy both these qualities. In five years, the speakers should function as they did when you bought them. The wireless system should also have the ability for software upgrade so as to enable a user to enjoy added features. Besides durability, purchase wireless speakers that match the interior design of your home. From a range of models in the market, choose a system that blends with your style.    Capability for Inter-operability — Ensure that you buy devices from manufacturers that do not place propriety standards on their speakers. Such standards hinder integration with other wireless devices from different manufacturers. Inter-operability enables users to integrate their pre-existing sound systems to new sound equipment. This quality saves you money besides ensuring greater convenience for users.        ...

What To Consider When Hiring Audio Equipment For Your Event

Posted by on Jun 18th, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on What To Consider When Hiring Audio Equipment For Your Event

Audio systems are a key part of events. They streamline communication from the stage and ensure that everyone present gets to follow what is being said at any given time. They also play a key role in entertainment, distributing music throughout your venue. However, not all audio equipment needs are the same. Each event requires a different approach based on a few pertinent factors. Read on to see what they are and how they affect the kind of audio equipment you should get. Number of guests The number of people in an event plays a huge role in the size of the audio system you need. The more people you have coming in, the more speakers you will need to ensure everyone gets covered adequately. The distribution of the guests also matters. If you have guests scattered in different areas, you might need more speakers so that every group is catered for. The size of the crowd also determines the size of the speakers. While a small gathering may need just a few medium speakers, larger gatherings will need larger speakers. That way, you don’t end up hiring so many smaller units instead of fewer, larger speakers that are easier to maintain. Size of the venue The size of the venue matters too. It helps the audio hire company evaluate how and where to install the audio equipment. In a small venue, speakers can be installed on the stage and adequately serve the entire room. However, for larger venues, the speakers may need to be installed on the sides and at the back too. This creates a more even sound system, ensuring no ‘sound gaps’ are created in the venue. Type of event Lastly, you need to evaluate the type of event you’re having. Is it a corporate gathering, a wedding, a music concert or a birthday party? Each type of event requires its own set of audio equipment. Corporate events, for example, may also need a projector and TV screens for added display support. A wedding will require more microphones to cater to entertainment performances. A birthday party or concert, on the other hand, will be more centered on entertainment. If the guests range from children to younger adults, you might consider hiring a DJ to jockey the music and entertain the crowd as opposed to just playing music. With their vast experience in the industry, an audio equipment hire company like Fordtronic Video & Sound Pty Ltd can tailor a package for you based on the above parameters. This will help you quickly discern what you need so that you can concentrate on organizing your...

3 Important Questions To Ask About Hiring A Videographer

Posted by on Apr 24th, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Hiring a professional videographer is a great way to ensure that your memories are captured for any special occasion—on video and not just in pictures. It’s true that your friends may be recording your wedding or birthday party or other special moments on their smartphones, but a professional can ensure that nothing is missed and that everything looks professionally filmed and recorded. Before you hire a videographer, note some important questions you might want to ask to ensure that these special moments are not lost, and that you understand everything involved in the process of using their services. 1. How is the sound handled? An overhead microphone can be very distracting for any occasion, and many of today’s professional cameras have a microphone built in so that overhead mics are not needed. A professional videographer may also have a wireless microphone that he or she will attach to an individual during certain times, such as to the jacket of an officiant during a wedding ceremony or to the guest of honor during a speech. Ask about their sound options so you know what to expect and ensure that no microphone or other equipment will be in the way of your celebration. 2. Do you only book one event each day? If a videographer has a morning speech to record the day of your evening birthday party, this may not interfere with your plans. However, if they need to rush to two different weddings or parties in one day, you may see that they arrive late or need to leave your party long before it’s over. Usually your contract will be for a certain number of hours or certain timeframe, but it’s often good to ensure your major event is their only event that day. This will cut down on the risk of having them delayed and will give you the opportunity to keep them overtime if you think it’s needed for your event. 3. Will the video be HD-quality? With many computers and televisions being equipped for high definition playback, you may want to ask if this is something they offer with their finished videos. If not, you may see some fuzzy areas or a less than crisp picture with the video they create. If you have a high-def TV or want to enjoy the finished video in high-def, be sure you ask about this and don’t assume that it’s an option with the video they produce. For more information, contact a company like Audio Visual...
