Typical AV hire equipment used at events

Audio-visual equipment is a crucial part of any event, be it a corporate gathering, a wedding or even an outdoor concert. AV hire equipment such as microphones, mixing desks, PA systems and LED video walls are essential to make sure that the audio and visuals at your event are up to par. Screens and projectors are also important for displaying information or videos during your event.

Audiovisual (AV) gear is an essential part of any event or gathering. Whether it’s a corporate event, wedding, or large-scale concert, AV rental gear can help ensure that the event runs smoothly and looks great. But what types of AV rental gear are available and what benefits do they offer?

Let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular types of AV rental equipment and their associated benefits.

  • PA Systems – This might sound like an obvious one, but a good PA system is worth its weight in gold when it comes to getting your message heard. This will require a bit of research especially when combined with in-house systems, but thankfully the team at Hybrid – AV is on hand to advise.
  • Microphones – Depending on what style of event you’re hosting, there are lots of different styles of microphones, however, dynamic microphones are a popular choice for live addresses on stage.
  • Mixing Desks – Mixers typically work by receiving input signals from microphones and relaying them to output jacks connected to speakers. If you want more information on our range of mixers then talk to one of our technicians today.
  • LED video walls – These can be used to present large-scale visuals either as a centre point or backdrop to your event. Typically these are used for indoor events but Hybrid also have a range of LED video walls suitable for outdoor use as well.

A typical AV checklist for events

It is important to have a comprehensive AV checklist that includes all the necessary audio-visual components such as microphones, mixing desk, PA system, LED video wall, screens and projectors.

Having a thorough AV checklist for events can help save time and money by making sure that everything is set up correctly before the event starts. It can also help reduce any potential problems or issues during the event itself by ensuring that all of the audio-visual components are working properly.

Some typical questions when creating a checklist should be:

  • What is the setup timeframe?
  • Will we need additional power for our setup?
  • Will there be someone on-site for the event in case of a malfunction?
  • Have I tested the equipment when fully set up to ensure that it all works correctly together?

As well as this there should be a comprehensive list of the equipment you will require. (Note: A professional AV company can help you with this if you’re unsure.)

An equipment checklist could typically look like this:

  • How many microphones will I need?
  • Will I need supplemental lighting or will in-house do?
  • Is there an in-house sound system or will this need to be supplemented?
  • How many mixers will I need?
  • Are there enough power outlets or will I require additional power?
  • How many video cameras will I require?
  • Laptop computers and how many?
  • Do I require on-stage decor and furnishings like podiums?
  • If I’m running a big team with lots of moving parts, will I require two-way radios?
  • If I’m using visuals will I need projectors and screens? If so what size?
  • Will I require technicians to run multiple equipment in the evening?
