When you rent or use audio visual equipment, you may also
need audio visual staging as well so that your presentation can be fully
viewed, in a safe way, by your audience. Many services that rent the equipment
out will also rent staging as well, but this is not always the case, and you
will want to find this information out well in advance of your event. There are
other things that you need to know and consider as well.
will your audience be spread out in the venue? How your audience will be
positioned during your presentation often determines the exact type of
staging that is required. Be realistic, and of course, if possible try to
visit the venue where the event will be held well in advance. Also consider
how the staging will affect the sound and lighting quality.
you need some height for your audio visual staging? Most staging will give
you height, but how much height you need will matter a great deal. You do
not want your event to get started only to find that the people in the
front are looking straight up to see your presentation, while the people
in the back can’t see anything other than the back of other participants
heads. Visit the venue and determine exactly how much height is required.
much security is needed for the equipment? Often the staging for the
equipment will play a role in the security of the equipment as well. This
is security in terms of protecting against theft, in some venues, as well
as protection from damage caused by the movement of people. Do you need
staging that plays a big role in security as well?
sturdy does the audio visual staging need to be? How much does the
equipment weight? Will there be anything other than the equipment on the
staging? Will people be moving near the staging? You don’t want your
staging and your equipment to tumble to the floor during your event, so
you need to select staging that has the sturdiness that you need.
you rent what you need? Again, not all equipment rental services also rent
staging materials, and you will need to ask this question. However, in
cases where the service does not handle staging, they often have a
relationship with a company that does rent this type of material, and they
may even be able to arrange a discount with this other company for you as
well. So, if the service you are using for the equipment does not also
rent out the staging, be sure to ask for recommendations before striking
out on your own to obtain the staging.
When you need audio visual staging, as you can see, there
really are several things that must be taken into consideration before you
select the equipment that you need, including the audio and video equipment.
Make sure that you have a definitive idea concerning what is needed for your
venue, and work with a qualified Audio Visual Hire sales representative to ensure that you do
indeed end up with what you really need.
