The Ins And Outs Of Conference Audio – Explaining What We Do

All About Conference Audio

In the world of corporate events, conferences are on a level all their own. These types of gatherings require incredible planning. There are speakers to organize and schedule, vendors to book (that’s where we come in), venues to scrutinize and attendance bookings to manage.

Conferences bring people together from many parts of the world or unite colleges from extended locations within a single company. They generally center on a theme and a variety of experts and company representatives will prepare speeches to give to the audience.

Hearing these speakers is a huge reason people attend in the first place. It’s vital that the experience runs smoothly.

We are here today to explain a little about how we get your message out, loud and clear.

Conference Audio Checklist

As soon as we consult with a client about providing conference audio services, we secure the date and ask detailed questions about the venue. By understanding the location of the event, we can anticipate the type of equipment necessary.

We take potential interference into account. We also review the number of speakers that may hold talks simultaneously and the physical distance between their locations. These details inform our approach.

Another important consideration we review is whether the event will stream live. This raises a host of new logistical challenges but offers valuable exposure for our clients. Remote attendees expect a high level of quality, especially if they are paying to watch the live stream.

While this merely touches on some of our planning, we also take the time to plot out our logistics. This includes the equipment we plan to use, how we will transport it to the venue and the staff we need at the event.

The Diamond Sonic Client Experience

Our goal is to take the lead on the audio side of your event so you can focus on other things. You’re providing an experience to your attendees, and we match that energy.

Our approach and demeanor are friendly and accessible but always professional. We hope our staff can impart positivity and competency because we understand that we’re a representative of your organization and brand while we’re on site.

We love to plan, but also pride ourselves on being able to react in the moment. Together, we can pivot and troubleshoot to bring your guests a memorable experience. The most important thing we can do is make sure all the tools are available to empower you to deliver your message to your conference attendees.

In some cases, we can offer pre-visualization space or make ourselves available to provide services at your venue for a dress rehearsal. We know it’s often important for clients to see their presentations in motion before the curtain lifts on event night. Your pre-event planning is one of the main keys to your success.

San Francisco Area Sound Equipment Rentals

San Francisco Area Sound Equipment Rentals

Diamond Sonic has a long-standing history of affordable, cutting-edge sound equipment rentals in San Francisco and the surrounding area. This experience backs up our tips in this article, which cover what you need from your equipment rental company.

We hope you’ll think of us for your rental needs. Even if you don’t call us, we hope this article helps you choose a reliable and skilled rental company for your next event.

San Francisco Area Sound Equipment Rentals: Why Rent Equipment?

It simply isn’t a good idea to rely on your venue to supply sound equipment to you. It can also be tricky to figure out what equipment you’ll need without the opinion of a skilled technician. That’s why meeting with a rental company and discussing your needs is the right way to do things.

Some rental companies have special packages that include both the rental and the services of sound technicians. These sound engineers know how to set up and run the equipment. They’re very handy to have around during your event!

San Francisco Area Sound Equipment Rentals: What To Look For From Your Rental Equipment

Don’t go blindly into your rental agreement. Here are some things to look out for. Feel free to ask questions to make sure all of these bases are covered.

Is your sound rental equipment well assembled? If any corners get cut you may have technical difficulties down the road.

What brand of equipment are you renting? Is the brand respected in the industry and trusted? It pays to do even a quick Google search to check this out. Feel free to talk to your rental company about this as well.

How old is the equipment and when was the last time it was serviced? Ask these questions, and find out if the rental company stands behind the equipment. They should perform a top to bottom check to make sure all components are in good working order before it leaves their place of business.

How does the equipment look? You want all of the sound components to look like they’re in good condition. This is important because it helps you rely on their performance. It’s also important to know that your rental will look good to your guests.

San Francisco Area Sound Equipment Rentals: Technical Specifications

These general guidelines will help you select your rental equipment.

Each speaker should feature 800 – 1500 watts of power capability. Speakers must have high sound clarity and the ability to project into your venue.

The mixer is the component that basically steers the ship. The number of channels a mixer has indicates how many components can be run through it. You should look for a mixer with no fewer than 4 channels. This is a basic, bare minimum, that allows iPods or mobile devices, turntables, CDs, and microphones to all run through this central point.

San Francisco Area Sound Equipment Rentals: Hiring Technicians

While many rental companies will let you run the equipment yourself, is that really the best option for you? If you understand how to run your own sound, this is an ok place to save money. However, if you have a complicated setup or many variables, a technician is really helpful. Furthermore, if you have never run event sound in your life, we highly recommend finding a little room in your budget for a professional to help.

If you need equipment rentals or professional sound technicians during your upcoming event in the San Francisco area, please give us a call! You can reach us by phone or through the website’s contact form.
