Important Television and Radio Renting Terms
People rent televisions and radio equipment for a variety of reasons. Short-term rentals are perfect for watching sports and other televised events on a big screen. Long-term leases allow people to have high-end electronics in their homes without the commitment or expense of purchasing outright. The following are some terms to know when shopping for rental TV and radio equipment:
Two-Way Radio: A two-way radio can both transmit and receive radio waves over a particular frequency. Two-way radios are used to communicate in a variety of fields including transportation, construction, retail and law enforcement.
Rent-to-Own: Rent-to-own leases are a type of agreement where the renter has the option to purchase the rented property at some point. Rent-to-own leases are often available for home electronics equipment like TVs, VCRs and DVD players.
LCD TV: LCD televisions are typically lightweight flat screen models with high resolution. They use a liquid-crystal display to produce images by filtering light from the back of the screen. They are the most popular type of television on the market.
Plasma TV: Plasma televisions are typically larger flat screen models. They use florescent lighting technology to display images. Plasma TVs are known for their large range of colors and very black blacks.
Video Projector: Video projection equipment receives a video signal and projects it onto a large screen for viewing. Unlike with televisions, images are projected from the front instead of the rear. Projectors can be rented for use in presentations or home theater set-ups.
HD Television: HD televisions produce an image with a higher resolution than standard televisions. The three most common resolutions for hi definition TVs in increasing order are 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. Increased definition results in clearer images and more visible details.
If you want to find a company that will rent a television to you, whether it's for a company meeting, football party, or wedding, you can look in local phone books or online. Many audio visual companies will have different types of equipment so you're able to do exactly what you want for the event. Many companies will have big screen TVs available to choose from, some with wide screen and high definition availability. Plasma and LCD color panel display models will be among your choices depending on your preferences. If you need something specific to be connected to the TV, like a DVD player, satellite, or cable you can make this known when calling a company and asking for an estimate. If you want HD images to be available for the film you're going to watch you may find that it will be more expensive to do than other options. Digital media has grown in popularity as programs are available to watch on computers. If you're worried about energy consumption, you can ask if they have anything that was built to conserve energy. Many electronic devices are available to rent from audio visual companies that have televisions, projectors, and screens. While some companies may only offer their services to commercial customers, others will happily work with the general public. When calling a company, let them know if you're looking for a wide or big screen television and if you want the picture to be in hi def. Also, tell them how long you want to have the product for to get a fair estimate and to make sure they will have what you need.
