Audio visual equipment is really nice to have when you need it, but it isn’t something you necessarily want to invest in. Audio visual rentals have proven a popular way to get some pretty impressive technology, without having to commit to a purchase or long-term lease agreement.
What Kind of Equipment Can You Get?
You name it. Most rental firms offer a huge selection of equipment, from the biggest plasma screens to the smallest microphones.
If you are planning a trade show booth, training seminar or even a small sales presentation, you can use AV rentals to fill in the gaps in your technology. You’re up against competitors who may have deeper pockets than you, so you need to find a way to impress for less. With rentals you can obtain some great technology for the short-term:
- Plasma or LCD screens are perfect for any kind of trade show exhibit. They have instant cachet and help you create an eye-catching presentation. Want to really hit one out of the park? Try a video wall.
- The greatest display screen in the world is nothing without a decent projector. Although LCD projectors have come down in price recently, they are still a luxury for a lot of businesses. Renting the latest model can help move your AV presentation from good to great.
- The sound in your trade show booth is also a major attention getter. Good speakers are essential.
- If you are presenting a seminar to a large group, a wireless microphone can ensure your message gets across clearly.
You can probably see the great potential in this AV equipment, but an outright purchase is still pretty hard to justify. So rentals are probably the best way to go.
Other Advantages of AV Rentals
All that fabulous technology looks great in a booth or conference room, but pulling it all together takes time and a lot of expertise. When you rent your AV equipment, you get all that finicky setup done for you. No need to waste time figuring out what input and output and HDMI and DVI are. The rental company will take care of it all. They will also disconnect everything and remove it. Additional technical support might also be available, if you required.
If you need to travel, renting makes complete sense. A national rental company can arrange for a local office to supply your AV equipment and set it up where you need it.
With rentals you get the latest technology without having to buy it. Rental companies generally have large inventories of AV equipment available. They can also help you decide on the equipment that is best for your needs.
Why Rent Instead of Leasing?
Renting and leasing are often confused. Leasing is normally done over the long term. It is a great solution for everyday IT equipment like computers or copiers. But when you need a specific piece of equipment for a short time period – a few days or weeks – renting is the better choice. This is especially true of AV rentals, which give you the flexibility to obtain the equipment you need for the exact length of time you need it.
