  3. Short Throw Video Projector


    A short throw projector lets you keep the projector close to the screen while still having a large image. This InFocus video projector can project a 100″ diagonal image when placed just 38″ away.  If you’re working in a small room or like to walk around your projection, a short throw video projector rental can make things a lot easier.

    The projector rental also comes with a stylus/wand, which lets the projector work like an interactive whiteboard. The features of the projector make it great for classroom and collaborative business settings. It has HDMI and VGA inputs, and can display a JPG slideshow from your USB device. Composite and S-video inputs let you connect to DVD players and legacy video equipment. You can even project up to four different computer displays at once, using your computer network. We include a mini displayport adapter with each of our rental projectors, making it ready to use with Mac laptops, too.

    The projector is 3000 lumens and uses DLP technology. It accepts input resolutions up to 1920×1200. The display is natively 1024×768 (XGA). It features two 10-watt speakers, relatively loud for a portable projector. This makes it great for classrooms and meetings where sound is needed and setting up external speakers is not an option. We suggest this projector for screen sizes up to 120″ (ten feet) diagonally.

    The short throw projector has a crisp wide lens and fantastic imaging edge-to-edge. It’s also quite portable, weighing under ten pounds. We send it out with the projector, cables, and remote wand inside a hard case.

    Don’t forget, we offer a $10 discount when you combine your projector rental with a projection screen.

It can also function as a webcam, making it a great addition to a virtual sales meeting or collaborative Skype session.

  6. You’re Worth More Than $100 a Day

    make-moneyThe best part about a career in film, video, or television production isn’t the pay. We have a great job that makes other people jealous. Many of us get to travel, work with celebrities, and have our work seen by thousands or even millions. We get to express our creativity, and when we’re done, the things we’ve worked on can make an audience feel something. That’s a perk that doesn’t come with every job. (more…)

  7. 49″ TV on Truss Stand


    This 49″ TV on a silver truss-style stand is perfect for trade shows, video sets, and other places you want to showcase video, logos, and get attention.

It can also be used in a shorter configuration, for use on tabletops or risers.

    Widescreen HD displays can increase traffic at conventions and trade shows, help keep your audience engaged, and make your product or service look its best. We include the 49″ display, 74″ tall silver stand with weighted base and monitor mount, power cable, and remote.

  8. Backyard Movie Night Package


    We include everything you need in our backyard movie night package: a super-bright HD projector, a huge 120″ screen that’s easy to set up, two powered speakers, a DVD/Bluray player or TV tuner with Antenna, and all the cables you’ll need to make it work, indoors or outside. All you need to bring is the disc and the popcorn.

    If you’ll be setting up indoors, we recommend a room with ceilings at least 10′ high. Outdoor areas should be clear of branches and overhead wires.

    While you are welcome to connect our equipment to your own devices, we strongly suggest bringing a DVD or Blu-ray as a backup. We can’t guarantee your devices will work with ours, or the quality of your internet connection.

    A backyard movie night is a great way to have a memorable night. We suggest inviting the neighbors, so you can turn up the volume! Here’s some more information about  Preparing for Your Movie Night.

  9. Plan a Backyard Movie Night

    backyard-movie-nightA perfect backyard movie night just takes a little planning and a nice summer evening. Here’s how to bring together a movie night that makes you the coolest neighbor on the block.

    Start with invitations. As with anything that has the potential to be loud, you’ll want to invite the neighbors! Invite anyone you think might be interested and encourage them to bring outdoor movie necessities, including a blanket and bug spray. If your party is open to the public, or you’re charging admission, you’ll need to license your movie from the movie studio.

    Pick the right spot. You’ll want to be away from streetlights and other bright lights, ideally in a space with some open grass for viewing. Or you can set up the screen above the pool and host a “dive-in” movie!

    Plan enough food and drinks. Since your screening won’t start until after dark, you probably won’t need to provide a meal. No snack screams “movie night” more than popcorn, and you can serve it in classic paper popcorn bags for just a few dollars. Don’t forget, you’ll want to provide a trash and recycle bin, too, so your guests can clean up after themselves.

    Start after dark. It’s tempting on late summer nights with kids to try to start the movie early, but the projection won’t be very visible until after sunset. Using a brighter projector can help, but no projector is going to work well while the sun is still up. At least you’ll have an excuse to use your glow bracelets. They’re for the kids, right?

    host-outdoor-movie-night Pick a spot where the lights won’t shine on the screen, to help keep the image easy to see.

    Choose the right screen size for your group. Most backyard movies look best on a 16:9 screen that’s between 10 and 12 feet diagonal (usually for crowds between 20 and 120). You can build your own budget screen from a large sheet or project on a plain white wall, or you can get much nicer results from an affordable outdoor screen rental.

    Use a bright enough projector. Projector brightness is measured in lumens. Here’s our suggested brightness chart for a good-looking projection on a typical summer night outside:

    Screen Size
    80” 2000
    100” 2700
    120” 3000
    144” 4000

    Good sound is really important. Most digital projectors include some kind of speaker, but it’s not designed for large groups outdoors. For the outdoor movie experience, it’s best to use powerful speakers with good sound quality. For safety, you can add wireless audio to connect your speakers without running cables through your audience.

    If you don’t want to worry about getting all the right av equipment and cables, we offer a backyard movie night package that has all the equipment you need. We can even have an AV tech come set it up if you like!
