Mirage Audio Visual - Live Camera to Screen

"Live camera to screen" refers to sending a live camera feed of the presenter to one or more screens, generally located above the stage, so that all those in the audience can see clearly.  This is generally used in larger venues, and brings about its own challenges.

When organising camera to screen, a number of factors affect the camera operator's ability to record or capture the images they to, so these need to be discussed ahead of time.

The distance between the camera and the presenter influences whether or not the camera can be operated from a tripod or on-the-shoulder, and the amount of light available.

We generally record audio from the sound-desk rather than from an on-board microphone, and this can be done through either a cable (not practical for moving camera situations) or via wireless transmitter.  Specialist lenses may be required if the focal distance is quite long, in order to get the size of image desired, as well as a camera riser to give height, in order to get the correct angle.

At the control end, is generally a vision mixer, audio mixer, and lighting mixer, all working as a team to combine all elements as a whole.

Event and Production Services

While an event's audio visual requirements may be minimal, we can ensure equipment is installed correctly, and on time, minimizing the stress of organising a conference, product launch or display. Our staff bring valuable experience gained working on international touring shows, and apply it to conferences and corporate events.


Mirage Audio Visual - Projection

Projection is an art, with the size and type of projector being dictated by the audience and room sizes, and partly by the availability of adequate hanging points. With larger setups using multiple projectors, the images must be colour balanced, not only to each other, but to the presentation material. At the 'back end' of projection, is all the equipment that creates the projected image.


Mirage Audio Visual - Audio

We also supply concert audio - for indoor or outdoor events and festivals, we have systems to cover the largest venues, for band audio or where an even sound distribution for music is required, we supply it all. Distributed Audio is a system (commonly used in conference situations in larger venues) that is ceiling mounted across the space, making it easier to give a consistent level of sound to all areas of the room.
