Audio visual (AV) hire Oxford

A creative company with AV equipment to create a perfect event.

While looking for an AV supplier in Oxford, Bucks and Berks in which to trust your conference or AV solution, you would probably think it wise to bypass a company with disco as part of its name, but what's in a name?

We are a supplier of high-end audio and lighting solutions and have grown from strength to strength since 2005. And our lighting technicians are second to none, flying all around the world for specialist events.

We can offer you AV solutions from simple plasma screens and projectors, to full conference sets along with anything audio related.

Even though AV hire is usually required for corporate events or conferences, there are no premiums for you: you will pay exactly the same prices as anyone else who comes to us for exactly the same equipment. A breath of fresh air, as other suppliers have been known to charge up to seven times our prices for lower quality equipment.

We consistently impress our clients and always reinvest back into our company so that all of the equipment we offer is exceptionally good quality and great value for money.

To give you an idea of our client base, we work for and on behalf of: Coutts, JP Morgan, Credit Suisse, Oxford University, Goldman Sachs, Blake Lapthorne, City of Oxford college, Oxford Brookes, Red Bull UK, Coca Cola, Cadburys, Walmart, Budweiser, Mahiki, Chase Vodka, Tyrells, Channel 4, BBC, ITV, Kraft Foods, Pimms, Agrivert, Levi's, New Look and Jack Wills to name just a few.

The above have had either AV, lighting or staging hire in Oxford, Bucks or Berkshire.

A - is for audio

Many services fall under the AV hire bracket, please see our tiles for more information.

Audio: This is about hearing what is going on, so whether it be a sound scape from a film, talking on a documentary media file within a presentation or with presenters or delegates talking to a crowds at conferences. We have the ability to supply everything necessary for unbeatable sound quality for your event.
Top of the range Pro audio d&b sound systems through to AKG 747 V11 lectern mics and Sennheiser's full range of handheld, lapel and headset mics (300 series) guarantees faultless audio reproduction of whatever you put through the PA system. Like anything we hire, this can be manned by one of our experienced technicians or we can set the package to run by itself.

Shotgun microphones: Highly directional and extremely sensitive to the front its an ideal lectern mic. Generally these microphones are used in pairs because when presenters are talking they naturally move their head side to side to address the room.

Cardioid microphones: One of the most common microphone types used today, these are most commonly used for delegates asking questions and presenters who will not need to use their hands to demonstrate a product.

Lavalier & lapel mic: Small and discrete microphones that attach to the user's collar and can be hidden from view. These are best suited for TV and recording.

Headset mics: The ideal choice for a presenter who wants to move around and still be clearly heard, these mics are preferred over lapel mics and are much better in reverberant spaces. They come in a variety of skin tones, so that they are almost invisible to your guests.

V - is for visual

The visual side of AV hire covers a large amount of different products.

Visual: This is all about the image of the event and how it's produced, whether that be by an amazing set built as a backdrop or a projector and screen being used for a presentation. We offer high-powered projectors and screens along with large Plasma and flat-screen hire in Oxford, Bucks and Berks.
Everything can be combined into a custom-built set and stage which can be illuminated in corporate colours or have a logo projected onto it. Our lecterns are all capable of being branded and lit internally so that the theme is carried on throughout the whole site. We also offer cameramen, live feeds with picture in picture, and recording of your event which can be edited afterwards for distribution to your delegates, so the event can be relived again and again.

We have listed a few popular AV hire items below with descriptions.

Projectors and screen: Small and large data projectors. Can be front or rear projected.
Plasma and flat screens: Large screens up to 70" available for small meetings and with delay screens for larger conferences.
Custom sets: Our team of dedicated set builders are able to design and build the perfect set for your event.
Set lighting: We have a great array of lighting for colour, design and branding.
Staging: Our Lite deck staging is modular and can be added to for larger platforms.
Lecterns: Trilite and acrylic in stock.
Filming and recording: Our dedicated team of cameramen, directors and post editors can make sure that your conference is not forgotten. We use PIP to put presenters on screen next to their presentation for larger events.
