An overview our products & services All our services listed right here. In alphabetical order, here is a rough overview of all the equipment and services AV:Activ supply:
Projectors & Interactive Projectors
Digital Signal Reception
There is no denying the power of a projector in the meeting room. Presenters gain the power to better display their information, and the listeners sleep less. But what if, for a nominal extra amount, you could add interactive features to the presentation? Statistics show that a presentations information retention is multiplied 10 times in most cases. The presenter can interact and highlight parts of the presentation and the sleepers can even wake up and join in adding ideas and circling stuff. It becomes more fun, so everyone tries and absorbs that bit more.
Many types of business require TV reception, whether in the form of Freeview, Freesat or Sky, we can accomodate any requirements. AV:Activ can supply and install digital aerials and satellite dishes for all your needs.
LCD & Plasma Displays There are many reasons for having displays mounted throughout your business. Health and safety updates and notices, business news, advertising or just making your staff and clients relax with a bit of TV in the quiet areas. AV:Activ can source, install and service any of your display needs.

AV:Activ have even installed these into schools where the use them as in house radio stations for the students to use!
But these are not limited to board rooms. In-house training rooms are becoming more and more popular to keep costs down, and throw a projector into traffic heavy area like a canteen or waiting area to add TV or advertising to staff and clients alike.

An overview our products & services All our services, continued. Speakers
Wireless Receivers and Transmitters
It’s no surprise that ordering a PA system or music player without speakers is a bit daft. But why not throw some into the boadroom or training room? Adding sound to presentations and training is a great boost to information absorption. Other scenario’s are embedded ceiling speakers for background music and larger wall mounted variants for dance halls and sports rooms etc. AV:Activ can also provide portable speakers with attachable mics and players, see the Mipro section for more details.

projectors and screens Perfect partners for the perfect presentation. Overview
AV:Activ can supply and install any type of projector and screen for you, along with various options depending on your requirements and needs.
Other additions can be things like DVD Players, MP3 players, Freeview/Freesat and Sky.
Projector / HD Projector These vary in brightness (lumens) and vary in spec depending on how much ambient light there is. There are two common types, normal (medium) range and short throw. The medium range are normally mounted via a pole from the ceiling on a bracket. The short throws are normally mounted from the wall as close as 30cm (and getting less) from the wall! These have less shadows and normally a stronger image.
Screens for all Static Mounted to the wall or free standing on a frame.
Plug it in So how do we get our image and sound onto the screen, and into the speakers? AV:Activ will supply and fit a face plate onto the wall (or somewhere). This will allow easy and simple access by just plugging straight into the wall and off you go. Or, if you want a bit more outlay a wireless projector can be used (although sound will still require wires.)
Where can they go? AV:Activ have installed projectors into all manner of businesses. From schools, meeting rooms, training rooms, gymnasiums and even into pubs and clubs.
Manual Mounted to the wall but needs to be pulled down to use. Electric Wall mounted, but comes with a remote to open and close. Sizes range from 2ft up to a whopping 30ft!
Sound There are usually a couple of options here, and they depend largely on the size of the room. Smaller rooms will be able to get away with self powered speakers, much like the ones attached to common PCs and laptops. Another option is to have an amplifier with separate speakers, this will allow more than 2 speakers at a louder volume. This will need either a rack for the amplifier to be mounted in, or a lockable storage cupboard. Page 10

interactive continued... Take a tablet and get some feedback.... Smart Boards with Projectors
Smart boards can enhance any room where teaching, data analysis, reports, training or general meetings take place. They offer a superb method of the user EPSON EXCEED YOUR VISION being able to interact with the information on screen, as well as add and modify data on the fly from people giving input. From Smart Board drawing outlines to taking notes directly on the board and information.
Epson have stepped up to the mark with the EB-4x Series. This all in one solution can project onto most surfaces and give you all the interactivity you would need without the need for the interactive board element!!
Being able to select, change, highlight and pull information from other sources in an interactive manner has a massive bonus to the amount of information taken in by the participants. When you go further and start adding the voting and feedback systems, you will notice massive improvements in information absorption and learner improvement.
This gives some obvious cost savings over other products. The software lacks some of the higher end features of the likes of Promethean products such as converting written notes to text, but most other features remain. This product can also work along side the Promethean software too! You will just need to check licenses.
Slates and Tablets
Slates and tablets are also on the rise. They add the ability to take control of the interactive display as you walk around! Yes, draw on the board, interact and make notes on the presentation from anywhere in the room.
Now you have seen the boards, the projectors and even the slates/tablets for interacting with the presentation or whatever it is your doing. But what about getting feedback from the people sat down in front of you. Whether your teaching and want your students to answer a question, or in a meeting and want anonymous voting on a business idea - the voting and feedback systems can provide an invaluable resource for on the fly feedback. Genee Slate
Keep the results to yourself, or have them display on the board! Watch the charts grow as the votes come streaming into the presentation, then save the details for use later.
With these devices, you can walk around a large presentation talking and casually guiding the speech, or hand over the pad and let your audience get involved while you manage it from the main PC.
