Audio/Video Resources

Event Services offers professional audio systems from a simple small sound system for a mic and podium or as large as a concert with our RCF Speaker Array system.

We set small sound systems for events that require the use of a microphone and or IPOD connection for background music.

We have professional sound engineers that can act as a facilitator and technical support.

We have multiple projectors and screens that can be used indoors or outside if it is dark. The projectors cannot be used outside in bright light conditions.

We have configurable Video walls that have multiple 1.5-foot square panels.

We can set one 91 large panel or flank a stage with two 50 panel video walls. The 50 panel video walls are 16.4 feet wide by 8.2 feet high. The 91-panel wall is 21.3 feet wide by 11.4 feet high.

Our professional staff is required to stay with the video wall system during its entire use.

We also have mobile. We can do outdoor movies on the drill field with projectors and screens that can only be used outside at nighttime. During the day projectors are not bright enough to be seen. If using the video system outside during the day, the video wall can be used in bright sunlight with video bright enough to be seen clearly
