Portable Electronics – Automotive And On The Go Solutions

During the past two decades, the portable electronics category has evolved to the point where it seems as though there’s a new product coming out every day. If you’re not paying close attention, you’ll be looked at like you’ve been living under a rock at the next cocktail party!

Headphones, iPods, iPod accessories, MP3 players, portable stereos, boom boxes, two-way radios, audio docks, wireless speakers and mini speakers are among the most popular electronic options consumers have today. Among the most popular brand names of mobile electronics are Apple, Audio Technica, Beats by Dr. Dre, Craig Bluetooth Stereo, dreamGEAR, Everlast, GE, Hello Kitty, HTC, ILIVE, iSound, Jamsonic, Jlab, JVC, Koss, LenMar, Maxell, Naxa, Panasonic, Pyle, Quantum, RCA and Zenex.

The automotive industry has gotten up to speed quickly as almost every model they produce on the assembly line is equipped with audio jacks, USB cable and some with a two or three-pronged outlet. You could follow suit and say quite a number of industries have had to revamp or modify their business model ensuring a pleasant customer experience. Hotels now have multiple USB outlets in their rooms. Starbucks, McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Barnes and Noble, malls, salons and many more businesses have plug-ins to meet customer demands. Can you name others? It’s clearly an advantage to the business establishment if they upgrade to make their store more customer electronic friendly as it’s been proven a customer will stay at your business a longer period of time therefore purchase more product while they’re there. What has been your experience? Do you spend more money if you’re at a Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts for 2 hours rather than going to the drive thru?

This new electronic age isn’t for everyone. Whether you’re old school or not, how annoying is it when the person who is assisting you has ear buds in and doesn’t hear what you’re asking! In fact, I’ve encountered a few customer service people along the way who have one bud in and think it’s okay. Quite honestly, it’s rude and it shows you’re not giving your customer the undivided attention they deserve.

Whether you’re for or against this electronic revolution, one thing is for sure. It’s here to stay. For the most part, mobile electronics have improved our lives, saved us time and enhanced many small business entrepreneurs making it easier for them to succeed. Our society tends to take things for granted but when you sit back and go through how we got to this point, you appreciate what you have in front of you.

Getting The Best Audio Visual Installation

Audio visual services come in very handy in different occasions and events. The equipment used ensure that people get a clear sight and audio of what is happening or whatever is being presented regardless of the crowd. It is through the audio visual equipment that huge crowds are managed without the need for everyone to be near the speaker at the event. They can be placed in strategic areas of the grounds or location so that all people in attendance can be catered to.

The system can also be installed in homes to enhance enjoyment. But the most common areas where the installations are needed are in sports stadiums, retail outlets, military bases, training rooms, schools, colleges, boardrooms and even motor dealerships. The systems are used to pass across important messages or presentations depending on the demands of location or client needs. This industry has a number of installation and equipment that can be used to match the needs at hand. Some of them are

· Digital posters or video walls

· Digital projectors

· Smart screens and touch screens

· Digital visualizers

· White boards

· PA solutions or sound systems

· Lighting solutions

· Security enclosures for screens

Whatever your need is, there are a few considerations that you should make to make sure that you get the best installations for your needs. Here are a few of those important aspects that you should pay attention to.

To hire or buy – Most of the audio visual equipment can be very expensive, hence are best hired if you have a onetime event or events that are not that regular. You should, however consider buying the equipment you need if you run a business that requires you have them round the clock. Whether hiring or buying, choose suppliers and installers you can fully rely on.

Your specific needs – The event you have or the needs you need to serve using the audio visual installation will determine the equipment you need to serve all your needs. Choose suppliers and installers who have everything that you need for your event. It is much easier to hire everything you need from one supplier as it can also attract discounts to you apart from saving you time looking for everything you need.

The installation – Choose a company that does not only offer quality equipment, but one that also has qualified installers to handle your needs. The installers should be able to determine the number of systems needed and the perfect locations for them within your location besides getting it right with all connections that are necessary. If you are not familiar with operating the audio visual systems, consider the services of technicians for the event or some sort of training from them to take you through the basics of operating if you need the installation for long term use.

The team – A good audio visual company should be made up of engineers, programmers and designers who can customize your system to match your specific needs and preferences. Look at the qualification and experience of the team when making your decision.
