“All speech, written or spoken, is a dead language, until it finds a willing and prepared hearer.”
– Robert Louis Stevenson

A properly amplified voice, weak or strong, carries a long way. Our audio equipment allows us to adjust voice levels to make each presenter sound his or her best. Having the right microphone is vital to the success of your event. Presenters must be heard with perfect clarity. Audio quality influences the mood of an event and can make or break your presentation. Our technicians know how to interpret the venue’s schematics to provide the right number of speakers to ensure clear and crisp sound from the back row to the stage. Whether it is analog or digital, we have the right audio systems for each of your events.

“The soul never thinks without a picture.”
– Aristotle

Apple founder Steve Jobs was known widely for his great presentations. Perhaps his best presentation (and one of the best marketing presentations of all time) was the unveiling of the iPhone back in 2007.
Jobs' presentation was engaging and passionate, but most notable, was his use of powerful visual aids. He knew that slides are most effective when they tell a story rather than convey information, so his visuals were simple and image-based. This required that they be in a crisp HD quality and presented in a manner that was easy on the eyes. His use of imagery complemented and reinforced his message, yet they never competed with him for his audience’s attention.

With rapid advancements in technology, the expectations of our audiences are increasing all the time. Breakout AV remains current with all technology advancements to ensure your videos, multimedia presentations or power point slides will be projected on the proper gear for your event space, and with the optimized brightness and resolution to achieve the desired impact.

Our imaginative lighting designs create stunning settings to compliment the space and reinforce your specific message. We know how to safeguard the speaker from facial shadows, and avoid baths of light on stage, all the while still allowing free-range movement during any type of presentation.
