Your One Stop Shop For Party Technology

2016-07-01 19:04:38 admin

audio visual companyPlanning an event is no easy task.  Between deciding the food, guests, entertainment, and decor, it can feel like you have no decision making power left when it’s all done.  On top of that, if you want to have any sort of lighting, video presentation, or even music, you need to contact completely different vendors…for all of them.  However, at Tolar AVL, we can provide you with all of the tech for your event.  Unlike competition, we don’t just specialize in audio-visual production or lighting, we specialize in all things tech. 

Event Lighting

Lighting can not only give a great look to your event, it can accomplish so much that you may be able to downsize your decor.  Whereas a table linen can only cover so much, the right lighting can span an entire room.  We don’t only do general event lighting, but stage lighting as well.  Many indoor stages are already outfitted with a lighting system, but our services are perfect for lighting at outdoor events like open-air plays and concerts, or your beautiful outdoor wedding.

Video Services

Tolar AVL can provide the visual equipment that you need for you event.  We have movie screens and projectors ranging in size up to 9‘x12’, perfect for your event indoors or out.  These are great for presentations, slideshows (that one might see at a graduation or birthday party), films, and more.  We even have Jumbotron rental available.

Audio Services

Any audio services that you could need to go along with our video services we’ve got.  We have the audio equipment to broadcast your movie or presentation as loud as you need.    Whether you’re planning a small private event or a community wide festival, we can set you up with the audio visual system that fits your needs.

On top of lighting and AV, Tolar AVL also has pipe and drape rental.  This essential part of AV is what allows for a “behind the scenes” at your event.  Pipe and drapes hide all of the ugly technological wiring that is crucial to the success of your event.  At Tolar AVL, we can be your one stop shop for party tech, so call today to let us know what you need!

Using Tolar AVL For Your College Programming

2016-06-17 20:41:40 admin

sound production californiaCollege campuses offer a wide variety of activities for students and members of the surrounding community alike.  From concerts, to music festivals, to movie showings, and more, Tolar AVL can provide the sound, lighting, or video equipment for any type of college event you may be throwing.  If you’re a member of your school’s programming board, consider using Tolar AVL for your next event.

Music Festivals

Though many colleges have the proper equipment for running small, coffee shop-like concerts, few have the equipment on deck to run a full scale music festival.  A popular annual event for colleges large and small alike, a music festival draws in the community and provides a fun, safe space for people of all ages.  Putting on a great show that has interesting technical effects and runs smoothly is what will keep people coming back again and again.  Tolar AVL can provide you with the newest, most state-of-the-art audio equipment for your college’s music festival, and provide you with the lighting for a great show as well.

Outdoor Movies

If you have the good fortune of living in beautiful Northern California, you’re going to want to take advantage of that weather as much as possible.  Outdoor movies are a fun, easy way to bring the community together.  At Tolar AVL, we have screens that go up to 9×12 feet in size and projectors that run as bright as 10,000 lumens.  The expert video production along with the expert audio will facilitate a movie watching tradition that your fellow students would be sad to see go.  Most college campuses offer some sort of weekly/bi-weekly movie event, so why not add something different and make it outside?  For only a bit of extra money, you can put on a professional movie showing on your quad.

Field Day

A little less common on college campuses, Field Day is typically associated with elementary schools.  It’s a day in which classes are cancelled and kids get to just get out and play, competing in a series of easy to understand, fast-paced games.  These games include egg toss, water balloon fights, kickball, and anything else you can think of.  The hardest part of college programming is getting people to come to your events, as everyone is so busy with school, work, friends, and more, so having killer audio equipment to blast music and show people that something fun is going on can be a great tool in boosting attendance.

For all lighting, video, and audio production needs in Northern California, call Tolar AVL today!

Should You Rent Or Buy Audio-Visual Equipment?

2016-06-03 12:23:34 admin

audio-image-1We’ve talked about how renting audio-visual equipment can benefit you by saving you money, preventing transportation hassles and helping you avoid maintenance costs. If you still can’t decide whether you should rent or buy, there are a few other factors to consider. Ask yourself the following questions to determine whether you should rent or purchase audio visual production equipment.

  1. Am I new to the business?

If you’re just starting up, you’re probably managing a tight cash flow. Investing in expensive equipment before you have many clients can leave you with a deficit. Why not spend the money on marketing that can get you high-paying clients? Rent the gear on an as-needed basis until you have the steady stream of income that can support the purchase of your own gear.

  1. Am I sure what equipment I need?

Trying out a variety of equipment can help you decide what to get when it’s time to purchase inventory. Instead of buying a bunch of equipment that may or may not work for your projects, test out the products by renting them. You’ll get more experience with different items at a fraction of the cost.

  1. Do I work from home?

If you don’t have a studio, finding a place in which to store your equipment at home can be cumbersome. Renting the items that you need for a particular project can help you save space.

  1. Am I having trouble setting my rates?

When you’re coming up with a fee schedule, you might need to increase your rates to cover significant up-front business expenses like the purchase of equipment. On the contrary, you can work the lower rental fee into a specific job. It’s easier to work the rate into your accounting when you’re just renting what you need for the project instead of purchasing a large quantity of tools based on the expectation of future business.

The decision to rent audio visual or lighting production equipment doesn’t necessarily come down to money. There are several things to consider when you’re making a business decision like this one. Convenience, variety, learning opportunities and space are major factors that play into the decision.

How To Choose the Right Space For Your Event

2016-05-20 12:20:36 admin

image-1Whether you’re hosting a professional retreat or managing a corporate training in Sacramento, Chico, Redding or Roseville, the room that you choose will affect the flow and success of the event. When you’re selecting a space for your gathering, consider the size of the room, the layout and the options for incorporating audio visual production equipment.

 

Size Of The Room

Find out how many people the room holds. Discuss different scenarios with the company from which you will be renting the space. The room will accommodate a different maximum number of participants for a yoga workshop than for an award ceremony.

In addition to your guests, take into account the other participants in your event. You may be hiring servers, performers and technicians. Do you need space for a registration table? A larger room can usually be blocked off to create a more intimate environment, but a smaller area can’t be enlarged if the crowd is too big.

Room Layout

Consider the layout within the space as well as the location of the room in relation to the other meeting rooms in the building. If you’ll be delivering a loud presentation with booming music, will you interfere with the meeting next door? Perhaps even more importantly, if there is a noisy gathering across the hall, will it hamper your quieter, more formal function?

Options For Lighting And Sound Equipment

Think about the electronic equipment that you’ll need for your meeting. If you need a projector, make sure that there is room to incorporate it into the seating arrangements so that everyone can see the screen. Check out the location of the stage and the traffic pattern so that guests won’t have to cross over wires. If the room is challenging to find within the building, you might want to rent video monitors or a jumbotron to guide participants to the right place.

Many different factors must work together to ensure that you have a productive event. Create a sound foundation by selecting the right space.
