THE CHALLENGE OF AUDIOVISUAL STAGING
Providing and operating lighting, audio, video and other related equipment for live events, the core of our business, requires the consumption of energy which is often produced from non-renewable sources. Our industry is commonly overlooked in terms of environmental impact but we understand it is our responsibility to play a part in the sustainability movement and support the greenest technologies available.
When building bespoke staging we prefer to use local products, responsibly sourced, wood, recycled materials and water soluble paints wherever possible and to avoid VOCs and toxic materials. We can creatively use LED light washes to save energy while creating atmospheric event environments.
We prefer equipment with energy-saving efficiencies such as lamp power switching and an auto-standby mode. We source the newest and highest quality equipment which offers sharper images, but use less power. We can offer our clients the latest in hybrid meeting technology using a “multiplex” platform, connecting speakers across time zones and nations and reducing the need for travel.
Switching to LED units is the quickest way to limit environmental impact. LED light-sources have much longer lifespans, use less energy and produce vastly less heat which has the additional benefit of reducing the need for air conditioning in meeting rooms.
We prefer Switch Mode Power Supply amplifiers to drive our sound systems. These are highly energy efficient, have lighter weight, and cooler operating temperatures.
Both onsite and at our warehouses and offices, we follow the mantra of “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”, separate waste and ensure it is disposed of in the most responsible way possible. We re-use partially used batteries in low energy demand equipment to ensure your important equipment always has full power and we dispose of our e-waste responsibly.
