  1. PowerPoint Projector

    Comments Off on PowerPoint Projector

    A PowerPoint projector rental is perfect for your business meeting or proposal.  Our basic PowerPoint projector rentals are at least 2700 lumens, bright enough to light a screen up to 10 feet, even with some lights on.  They have a 4:3 native aspect ratio and 1024×768 native resolution, making text crisp and legible, both up close and from the back of the room.

    You can connect it to anything with a HDMI, VGA, S-Video, or composite video output, and we include an adapter for Mini Displayport at no charge.  That means you can connect it to your PC or Mac, laptop, DVD player, blu ray player, camera, and nearly anything else that plays video. This PowerPoint projector rental includes a small speaker, but we suggest upgrading to a speaker system if you want your audience to be able to hear the sound.

    All our projector rentals include a hard case, making it easy to transport safely.

    If you’re looking for a projector just for 16:9 video, like movies, we suggest a widescreen LCD projector. If you’re not sure what projector is best for you, give our office a call at 414.939.3653 and one of our AV experts can help you choose.

    We also rent computers with PowerPoint installed and guarantee they’ll work with our PowerPoint projector rental. Stop worrying about adapters and cables, leave your laptop behind, and focus on your presentation!

    Ask for the projector and screen combo discount and save $10 when you combine your PowerPoint projector rental with a projection screen.

    If you have access to a computer or a smart device — and can manage to form a simple declarative sentence, voilá — you’ve suddenly got what it takes to voice your opinion in bold print.
    Not so fast, Jeff Craig!
    While not an exact science, film criticism requires a certain discipline and understanding to be taken seriously.

    Our presenter is film critic Mack Bates. He writes for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and Milwaukee Magazine, and has been the recipient of the Crystal Pillar award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, as well as multiple Milwaukee Press Club awards.

    We follow his presentation with screenings of local short films and videos. Bring your short film on USB, Blu-ray or DVD and share with the audience!

  3. Zoom H6 6-Track Audio Recorder

    Comments Off on Zoom H6 6-Track Audio Recorder

    The Zoom H6 audio recorder allows for simultaneous 6-track recording. We rent it with multiple mic capsules and the EXH6, allowing for all six tracks to record XLR microphone inputs through the XLR/TRS combo jacks. With familiar menus for those who have experience on the Zoom H4n, the Zoom H6 is vastly improved, with better preamps and more versatile inputs.

    The Zoom H6 is the smallest way to record from multiple sources with broadcast-quality preamps. There’s no need to bring a bulky mixer or huge recorder in a sling bag. The H6 is small enough to mount on a camera.

    It supports bitrates up to 96kHz, 24-bit for six discrete channels, plus two more channels of stereo mixdown.  It has separate headphone out and line out jacks, so you can monitor while still sending a signal to your camera or other device.  Each of the six channels can be set independently, allowing you to fine-tune levels, compressor/limiter, and low-cut filter.
