Whether you are in the media industry or simply need to make effective presentations either in school or at work, you need some basic know-how of different types of audiovisual equipment in order to use them to your advantage. Read on to find out what the latest audiovisual presentation tools are and to see how they can work for you.
The latest in audiovisual presentation technology is the plasma monitor, which is now common not only in advertising agencies but in boardrooms and university halls. These monitors are cleverly thin but never fail to deliver clear images and clear sound in any setting – whether it is a crowded theater or a private conference room. Many plasma monitor models feature very useful on-screen menus that let you easily adjust images. They also come with built-in speakers that can stand alone but can also be augmented with external high-fidelity units for bigger presentations. What’s more, a plasma monitor is highly compatible with any computer system – just hook it up to your laptop and flash your audiovisual presentation clearly, so that even audiences from a distance can appreciate your work.
An LCD projector is an upgrade to the old acetate projector; LCD projectors allow even rookies to share professional-looking presentations anytime, anywhere. Gone are the days of heavy, overheating LCD projectors – they now come in lightweight models that are perfect for an active lifestyle. Most of these powerful yet portable LCD projectors easily connect to any kind of computer, whether it is Windows based or a Mac. Instantly project any presentation from your hard drive or from an external storage media (such as a CD or DVD).
Digital video cameras allow you to shoot, edit, and present instant audiovisual presentations. These nifty gadgets let you easily transfer your videos onto your computer for manipulation. They also hook up easily to both LCD projectors and plasma monitors for quick presentations. It’s very easy to convert digital video into any format, making the possibilities for your audiovisual presentation virtually limitless.
