More and more couples are opting for wedding AV rental, when it comes to preserving memories of their big day. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to use audio-visual equipment. With a little practice, it’s probably simpler than you think. Continue reading to learn more about five things you definitely need to make the job as easy as possible.
If you aren’t using an exceptional microphone to capture the audio portion of your ceremony, you may just end up with a silent movie. Because you won’t have the convenience of a “do-over,” that’s the last thing you want.
Wireless microphones are a must for any wedding, whether the event is held indoors or outside. You can’t have cables going every which way. Excess cords are an accident waiting to happen.
This type of microphone is very expensive to purchase outright. So, wedding AV rental is the perfect solution, when you want to stay within your budget.
Sound System Rental
One option is to use several pocket-size recorders in addition to a larger sound system wedding rental. Give the recorders to a few people at a time, instructing them to put the devices in their pockets. Put one microphone in the middle of the room. Plug another into the larger system. When all is said and done, simply sync the audio and video together.
Many couples choose to put their reception playlist on an iPad, as opposed to hiring a DJ. You do have to have access to (or rent) a quality amplifier. Obviously, the music needs to be loud enough for everyone to enjoy or no one will want to get up and dance.
Video Camera Rental
There is a wide variety of video cameras to choose from, if you happen to be thinking about wedding rentals. Two of the most important factors to ask about are depth of field and ASA/ISO. Any qualified AV tech will be happy to help you with your rental selection.
While it’s not an absolute necessity to use lighting, obtained through wedding rentals, it is highly recommended. Without lighting, there’ll typically be certain spots, inside or out, where it will be too dark to get good footage.
These are just a few tips in regard to the equipment you need to capture your ceremony on video. Wedding rental is the ideal option, because of the cost factor. Honestly, you’re better off renting the equipment from a company which specializes in audio-visual rentals. As the old adage goes, “it’s better to be safe than sorry!”
