Connecting Your Projector Rental

With projector rentals becoming a popular item to bring to trade shows events and business meetings, we thought it would be important to inform you on how to connect your projector to a video source using a common connector. Connecting a projector to a video source such as a computer or dvd player is an easy task. If you look on the back of your projector rental you will usually see the common connectors:

• Dual VGA - This is the most common and flexible projector connection type. This is a very versatile option that is mostly meant to be used with home/work projectors and often seen when connecting the projector to computers.
• Component Video - This is a relatively flexible connection type which carries an analog HD video signal. When dealing with HD input sources, either HDMI or Component Video can be used. However, Component is recommended for HD when dealing with cabling longer than 30 feet.
• HDMI - This is one of the most common found connection types in the Projector world being that it is optimized for video and can carry both a High Definition video and audio signal. HDMI is common on newer video sources such as DVD and Blu Ray video players.
• S-Video - This is great connection type to have around as a backup for older video sources. Although using S-Video will produce a noticable decrease in image quality, it is compatable with many older video sources that will not work with HDMI or VGA.
• Composite Video - Similar to S-video, a great backup for older video sources but it is in fact the lowest form of video connection and will be noticeable.

Ever Considered Leasing?

Have you ever thought of leasing your computer and audio video equipment? Leasing has so many financial and budget benefits that it has become a very popular choice.

Here is a quick list of reasons why leasing computer and AV equipment makes good sense.

Flexible 1 to 5 year terms
A lease is a great way to get new equipment right when it comes out. Instead of having to buy the new equipment every couple of years you can just lease a certain model for a couple of years and just upgrade when you lease runs out.

Preserve Bank Credit Lines
The availability of credit today is unknown, but leasing is still an option. Leasing is a more convenient and efficient way to borrow; you're only charged for what you use, and you don't have to wait for credit from one source to get your equipment from another.

Technological Advantages
With a lease you will be able to have the technological edge over the competition by having the latest equipment every year.

Low or No Down Payment
Many times leasing company’s offer low to no payment down options to make leasing more affordable to you and your company.

Preserve Capitol Budgets
No initial capital expenditure, so your working capital will not suffer. And the lease payments are lower compared to purchase options.

Possible Tax Savings
Leasing may qualify your business for valuable tax deductions. Check with your company accountant to see if your company qualifies.

Many Financing Options
Leasing has many Financial Options that are unique to leasing, including lease purchases, fair market value buy-outs, and structured payments designed to meet your company's cash flow needs.

In today’s tough economic times saving a few extra bucks can go a long way. So if you and your business are looking for a way to get a competitive edge in the market without having to beef up costs you might want to consider leasing.

Electronic Copyboards

Electronic Copy Board
An Electronic CopyBoard is a great presentation tool. They are just like a normal white board that everyone owns. You can write on them with a marker, but this is a special marker that u have to select the color you want to write with and when you start to write on the board it will draw exactly what you are drawing in the color you selected.

There is something very special and useful about this white board though. Electronic Copyboards allow you to print out what is drawn on the board. Write your thoughts and ideas, save, share, fax, email, and print them out. Some Electronic Copyboards come with a printer already and u can print straight to that printer and handout your presentation after you are done drawing it. Other copyboards have a port that allows you to connect it straight to your computer which allows you to download your copyboard presentation to the computer and save or send out the information.

Rentacomputer.com has just started renting out electronic copyboards. If you would like an Electronic Copyboard please visit our Electronic Copyboard Rentals page.

Why rent a high definition projector?
"High definition projectors represent the highest tier of technology for portable projectors and these products are excellent for large conference rooms, large classrooms, home theaters, auditoriums, and generally well lit or big areas. High Definition Projectors are also the most flexible type of portable projector because it outputs a very bright image and doesn't have the same problems of ambient room light washing out the image that many other projectors have. High Definition Projectors also project at native 1080p resolution (1920X1080) and can illuminate a very large screen with little loss in image quality."

A high definition projector is a great choice for anyone who wants to have the best looking image possible to bring that spark to their meeting or if they just want to enjoy a movie in HD. Nothing is cheaper than a HD projector when your talking about watching a movie on a 10 foot screen in 1080p.

The Screen Lifter

Plasma Screen LifterThe screen lifter is a very nifty tool for the 103" panasonic plasma displays. Its designed to make transporting the plasma much easier and safer. The flight case has wheels to cart the massive plasma to the desired position and the case is then removed. With the help of an electric lift, the plasma can then be raised to over 3 meters off the ground by the simple push of a button.

The most amazing feature of The Screen Lifter is that it has a simple lock on the back that, when unlocked, allows you to rotate the screen 90 degrees clockwise so you then have a portrait view instead of the usual landscape view. The Screen Lifter gives your 103" plasma display a lot more viewing flexibility.
