AV Equipment London

If you’re planning an event in the Big Smoke this summer, there’ll come a point during your preparations where you’ll ask yourself - or Google - “Where can I hire AV equipment in London”? And the answer to that question is simple: right here at Media Services; we hire AV equipment in London.

From a wide range of lighting solutions to microphones and sound systems, from filming equipment and video production to projectors and different types of screens of all shapes and sizes, we can either “dry hire” the kit you need (which means you’ll be responsible for setting it up, operating it and taking it down), or we can “wet hire” the equipment (which means one of our skilled technicians will set it up, operate it and de-rig it for you).

But then again, we actually offer a whole lot more than that because there’s actually a whole lot more to AV equipment than meets the eye, it’s not just lights; PA systems, sound desks and projector screens. So when you find yourself asking, “Where can I hire AV equipment in London?” you should also be asking yourself “What do I want to achieve from my event?” as you’ll be amazed at the wide range of other tech available which you can hire to make your exciting event plans an exciting reality. After all, life is too short to host a boring event, so stand out from the crowd with Media Services.

The array of AV equipment available and the power it all has to affect an event is habitually underestimated. Audio visuals give so much depth and create such a dynamic ambiance that they actually play a huge role in tying everything about your special occasion together, so hiring the highest-quality and most appropriate pieces of AV equipment is the key to producing an event that’s visually unforgettable, highly experiential and utterly memorable.

So what other type of AV equipment is there?

The interactive, engaging kind

Event trends for 2017 reveal that your delegates will no longer be satisfied with ‘just being involved’, they’ll want to be truly engaged - they’ll want to be a part of an experiential event. This means you’ll need to incorporate more interactive elements into your agenda. For this, there’s such AV equipment as touchscreens (whether that’s on an iPad or a 60” 4K screen - with content which audiences can edit and control); voting panels, interactive mirrors, drones which take selfies for people or serve guests with food or drinks. There’s Artificial Intelligence in the guise of robots; interactive wristbands and event apps, live tweeting, interactive Q&As, photo booths and much, much more!

The kind that makes your story worth sharing

Live video streaming is the future of content. By 2020, 75 percent of the world’s mobile traffic will be video, so it’s a great way to promote your current and any future events whilst engaging and interacting with audiences from all over the world. Other ways in which you can make your brand stand out from the crowd with AV equipment are digital signage; holographic apparatus and augmented reality (a.k.a. video mapping). There are even opportunities to utilise sensory branding paraphernalia like scent machines and fog screens to help prompt retention as they’ll get your important messages across in new, exciting and thought-provoking ways.

The distinctive, artistic kind

For when you need or want something completely different and visually stimulating, there’s a cornucopia of AV equipment available that you can hire to give your event the wow factor: LED furniture, video walls for cinematic experiences and special effects AV equipment like bubble; dry ice, snow and confetti blowers, pyrotechnics like stage flames and fireworks.

So no matter what type of event you’re hosting or what type of effect you want to gain from your special occasion, if you’re looking to hire AV equipment in London, come to us and we’ll provide you with custom solutions to match the theme of your event.
