There are often times when you need to give a presentation and everything has to be perfect. Whether it is a big event for school or something to impress your boss, quality is key. It is times like these that call for a projector that sets its standards above the norm and goes above and beyond what you typically have to work with. I'm talking, of course, about an HD projector.
However, HD projectors are expensive, even more so than your standard projector, which means that a lot of people who could really benefit from everything an HD projector has to offer are stuck using that same old boring projector that everybody uses. If you find yourself in this situation, you should consider an HD Projector Rental from Rentacomputer.com.

However, it isn't always necessary to buy a DVD projector; that is why Rentacomputer.com offers DVD Projector Rentals for those occasions that don't justify purchasing one.

Technology is making huge waves in the business world. With business people striving harder and harder every day to come up with the most high-tech presentations and meetings in order to get their point across, it is no wonder technology is in such high demand. While people may know what each piece of their equipment is for, they may not know where it plugs in or how to operate it or even if it is working correctly. Knowing the basics of your audio visual equipment could be the difference in making your presentation a huge success or a flop.
After you have made your presentation, tested your soundtrack, practiced your slideshow and are ready to go, what do you do next? Well that's simple, get a projector and get a screen because it is almost time to give your presentation. Multimedia projectors have come a long way in recent years. Almost all models have the necessary hookups for connecting any kind of device that has a video output. Connect anything from a high-end laptop to even a VCR and you are almost ready to go. The next thing you need to focus on is sound.
Your presentation will most likely use an audio track from a C.D. or MP3 which simplifies things. But that is not the only thing involved in making sure you have the right audio. The next step is asking yourself how big is the room? If you are making a small presentation to a group of 6 to 8 people then the built-in speakers on your projector should do the job with no problem. If your group is larger and in a larger room, however, then you will need to consider different ways of amplifying the sound in order for everybody in the room to hear clearly.
Projectors today have a plethora of audio output options from basic RCA connectors and 1/8-inch mini-jacks to S/PDIF digital on your more high-end devices. Many people tend to connect an amplifier to the right projector outlet and then connect speakers to the amplifier. But that is a little complicated and takes a lot more time. You also have to spend more money on equipment that you do not need. Thankfully, there are much simpler solutions in today's increasingly technological world.
Manufacturers have created a new product by building small amplifiers into speaker cabinets. This is extremely useful for people in any field that requires amplified sound and, especially, business people who frequently hold meetings or presentations. These units, known as amplified monitors, can attach via anything from old-fashioned speaker wire to 1/4-inch jacks. Plus, if you do have a problem, there are plenty of adapters around. Just do a little research and you will have no problem.
If you do have a problem, Rentacomputer.com is there to help. They have a full line of Audio Visual Rentals that are delivered by a local technician who will set up, install and test everything to ensure that it is working properly.
Outrageous I say! Outrageous because the convention center can charge what it wants. Some convention centers even make secret deals with AV and Computer Rental companies. In these deals, the Convention Center gets a huge cut, often 100% Markup on the technology rental company's base price. Plus the technology rental provider has to pay a huge up-front fee, just for the privilege of providing their capital equipment to the convention center.
Here is the Bad News
You have to pay. These 'back room' deals have the effect of keeping out competition which keeps prices artificially higher than those convention centers who are open to the best technology service providers. You end up with crappy equipment you that you way over paid to have.
Artificial Inflated Prices at Some Convention Centers
With some Convention Center getting a huge cut with no competition, many convention organizers and trade show exhibitors pay double or even triple the 'real' market rate for Plasma Flat Screens, Projectors, Sound Boards, Mics, Speakers, Staging and more.
Here is a Money Saving Secret
Truth be known, 'unofficial' technology rental companies get in anyway, as they should. I won't tell you how, but the Tech Army Membership is an industrious techie group. They have come up with many creative ways to get product to patrons at 'reasonable' market prices, wherever the venue.
Example of a Convention Center Blocking Free Trade from Better Tech Vendors
There currently are 4 'Official' vendors servicing Jacob Javitz and 40+ "Unofficial" vendors who are ready to serve this US based Convention market. (This is America, right? Free market and all)
If you rent a plasma flat screen from an Official Jacob Javitz Vendor, you are likely to pay double the price over what these 40 other companies would charge. Plus, where do you think the 4 'official' vendors get their inventory and extra labor? That's right, from the 40 'unofficial' av technology companies. The convention center want's its cut and gets it because they try to channel all transactions through their 'Official' Vendors.
I'm not saying Jacob Javits is bad or doing anything wrong, but.... the tactics a bad convention center would employ may be considered anti-competitive because of 'exclusive dealings' and some agreements can even utilize collusion to get the deal done.
At least one Tech Army Member rental company has changed verbiage on their Jacob Javits Rental Page.
Here is the Latest Update
Due to pressure from companies wanting to select their own vendor for computer rentals and av equipment, many convention centers are no longer being exclusive by allowing only certain companies who pay huge fees, both upfront and on every deal. Convention centers are offering a disservice to their clientèle while lining their pockets with the premium payment for AV and Computer Rentals.
More Good News for AV Technology Vendors and Customers
At the Society of Independent Show Organizers (SISO) executive conference, held August 9-11, 2010 in Boston, MA, the SISO board and its members sent a powerful message to convention centers and hotels who are in the business of hosting trade shows. SISO said they strongly opposed “any policies whereby facilities require show organizers to use only that facility’s appointed and exclusive in-house vendors for services that would otherwise be widely available in the marketplace.”
They added, “Policies whereby the organizer is limited in its choice of contracting for services will, inevitably, drive both exhibitor and organizer costs needlessly higher, endangering loss of business to the city and the facility by driving shows to more friendly venues without such restrictions.” - Source: Trade Show News Network
Its time that independent Audio Visual and Computer Rental companies unite with a voice for fair, free competition. A voice united in breaking down the illegal trade obstructionist policies by some convention centers and hotels. This includes Las Vegas too. Many hotels and convention centers have their own 'in-house' av. But they allow 'certain' companies the privilege of taking care of hotel clients. That privilege isn't completely free, if you get what I am saying.
We will be recommending to all our clientèle 'FREE TRADE' venues. Hotels and convention centers that want what is best for everyone.
