AV101 utilizes both front and rear projection screen technology for it’s projection media.

We also have screen sizes ranging from 6′x8′ all the way to giant 50 foot screens.

Video Wall
For events where projectors are impractical, an LED video wall is often an ideal solution. AV101 can supply a your event with an LED video wall that features 10mm elements. We’ve found the 10mm LED is equally well suited for both outdoors and indoor events. Of course, our LED video walls come complete with a qualified operator to setup and run it to your specifications.


  • DVD/Blu-Ray
  • MPEG4
  • FLV
  • MOV
  • AVI
  • PAL

We can provide your presenters with confidence monitors to follow up their notes or cue their presentations. We also have a wide array of LED television monitors sized from 17″ to 70″. These monitors are great for use in exhibition halls, green rooms, hallways and more. If you need a freestanding monitor near the entrance to your event to display a schedule, we have sturdy floor mounts for raising monitors to eye level.

AV101 uses top-of-the-line Sony DSR-500′s to record your events. We have extremely powerful zoom lenses that allow us to place the camera literally at the back of the room and still get detailed closeups of the  presenters on stage. These cameras can output a signal that is suitable for televised broadcast and online webcasting. Should you desire a video archive of your event, we can record the entire event directly to a portable hard drive for your future use.
One very specialized cable can deliver high-definition images  from our video cameras directly to the screens on stage. This helps keep your audience alert longer and minimizes eye strain from audience members near the back of the house. IMAG is the perfect solution for large events where attendees may not be able to sit close enough to the presenter to actually see what they are doing.


Create a more dramatic look for your keynotes speakers or presenters. A well-lit presenter will carry a more impressive presence on stage. Proper lighting adds a remarkable effect to any presentation.

Decor Lighting
The simplest way to transform any room into something truly remarkable, decor lighting creates the mood you’re after. Add a splash of color to walls, columns, tables, buffets. If your event has a specific color scheme, we can easily match our lighting to fit. We can light your event’s hallway, breakout rooms or the entire ballroom!

Set Lighting
Get your audience’s attention from the moment they arrive with dramatic set lighting. Create a dazzling effect with different colors and textures on the stage. For a greater effect we can even add your company’s logo or graphics to our intelligent lights and project it across the stage or throughout the room.

Stage Lighting
AV101 ensures your stage is well lit so your presenters can be seen from across the entire room. We always employ theatrical lighting techniques to ensure that your presenters are seen without annoying facial shadows.

Spot Lighting
The perfect way to call attention to a person in the audience, spot lights can increase the excitement of your event. Our follow spots can pick up award winners from the audience or simply create a more intimate feel for on stage talent.

We also have all the necessary presentation software for both operating systems, as well as the complete Microsoft Office Suite for advanced document editing and creation.

We can help you leverage this terrific resource by actively promoting and displaying a Twitter Stream throughout your event.
