Audio-Visual

What kind of audio visual equipment do you need? That depends on whether you are outfitting a school or office. Today's classroom and boardroom require AV carts which facilitate digital productions. From classic projectors and projection screens to advanced PA systems, we offer lots of multimedia accessories.

Store and transport digital equipment in our sturdy audio visual carts. When you're ready to begin speaking, you'll appreciate our user-friendly podiums. Hertz Furniture's selection of AV equipment is assembled to satisfy the requirements of modern-day customers.

What should I look for in an AV cart?

AV carts come in a large selection of materials and configurations. The right choice ultimately depends on what digital equipment you want to keep mobile and accessible. AV carts save the hassle of carrying heavy and unwieldy electronics from place to place. When large equipment is carried manually, there is a greater risk that it will get damaged from dropping or bumping against things. AV carts roll everything smoothly into place as it securely rests in tough cabinets or on shelves.

Because we know that every institution has a unique set of needs for audio-visual equipment, we have carts in a wide range of styles. Whether you just want a place for your laptop and notes, or you need a DVD player, document camera and projector, we have some great choices. Locking cabinets ensure that electronics are protected even when you are out of the room. With all presentation and slideshow equipment in one convenient place, special lectures and events can be set up virtually anywhere in very little time.

What is the most versatile AV cart?

Tuffy Carts from H Wilson are sturdy and versatile. They can support virtually any electronic equipment, making it easy to transport just about anywhere. They are available in a huge selection of styles, with multiple caster choices. Cabinet options are available as well. Tuffy carts are distinguished by a selection of great colors that make them easy to find and fun to use.

If you just want a place to put a television, we also have a number of excellent TV carts. Carts which are designed for flat-panel screens enable sturdy mounting so equipment is secured in place and highly-visible. If you still have classic, full size TVs our carts can accommodate your equipment as well.

Where is the best place to store laptops?

Many modern schools and offices have a considerable collection of laptops for training sessions or special class lessons. The advantage of laptops is that they can be taken just about anywhere in laptop carts. Laptop charging and storage carts keep these valuable computers secure when they are not in use. When it is time to take them out, they are fully-charged and ready to go.

Should I get a sound lectern?

Every auditorium and lecture hall requires a lectern or podium. If your rooms can house a large crowd of people, it is important to make sure that the lectern is equipped with the technology to reach large crowds. The most convenient arrangement to have is a sound lectern. With a built-in microphone and amplification system, the speaker won't have to strain to be heard - even in a very large room. Another great model from the Oklahoma Sound Corporation is the vision lectern. An LCD screen on the front of the podium can display a company logo or photos and slides which enhance a presentation and keep the audience focused.

If your presenters prefer to move around as they speak, or you don't have a built-in sound system, portable PA systems can really come in handy. Models are available with a personal microphone that can be held as the lecturer walks around, or a tie-clip microphone for hands-free operation. These options are great for the professional and educational settings. Headsets with wireless microphones are convenient when putting on a school play or arranging other performances and special events from behind the scenes.

What kind of projector should I get?

Every modern classroom, lecture hall and seminar room needs a handy system for displaying slide shows, video clips and other digital presentations. We offer a variety of projector setup options, so you can find the choice that fits every space. Table projectors can be setup anywhere, they don't require special accommodations. If your institution does not have room in the budget to equip every room with its own wall-mounted projector and computer system, a table projector is helpful because it can be moved around and set up in different spaces as needed. We also have overhead projectors for those who still prefer to print out slides and write on them.

Do I need a projector screen?

While a picture can be projected onto any plain white surface, the clearest images will result from the use of a projection screen. Freestanding models with a tripod support can be set up in any location. Wall- or ceiling-mounted screens can be rolled down when needed and stay in the same place, so no one will have to go looking around for the equipment when an event is about to start. Tabletop screens can easily be transported in a convenient case.

No matter what electronic equipment you are using in conjunction with an AV cart or multimedia lectern, having a built-in powerstrip is always helpful. With multiple outlets in easy access, you won't have to go searching around for plugs, or leave dangerous wires which can cause a tripping hazard running across the room. Having all electronics plugged in right there makes setup and cleanup much faster as well.

Hertz Furniture has all of the audio-visual equipment you need to bring your company or school into the twenty-first century. With great prices and a huge selection of top-quality models you can furnish any space with great AV tools.

Lecture halls, auditoriums, chapels and other venues require audio equipment and podiums. The Oklahoma Sound Corporation brings you a winning combination of top-quality microphones, powerful speakers and attractive lecterns. Their functional church podiums and portable lecterns come with a 25-year warranty so you can enjoy extended worry-free use.

Not every room has the same style or acoustics, so it is important to choose a podium that meets a space's practical and aesthetic requirements. We have wooden models with built-in sound systems as well as sleek acrylic ones. Hertz Furniture's full selection enables you to consider all of the options and ultimately choose the one which fulfills your needs.

It can be hard to make the right choice when buying a church lectern or podium. Although practical concerns such as the size of the sanctuary and the nature of events it will house are important, stylistic concerns must be taken into account as well. The ideal model will help the congregation focus on the person behind the podium. It is important that this piece of furniture not become a distraction or detract from the harmony of a spiritual setting.

The right church pulpit ultimately depends on the size and style of the room it inhabits. If you have a classic-style house of worship, a basic wooden lectern will probably fit in well. If you want one that has built-in sound capabilities we have a number of models that seamlessly integrate speakers into the podium structure so they maintain a basic style while serving a functional purpose.

For new-age churches and modern companies such as startups, a wooden model might seem to be a bit behind the times. For a more updated and unique look, acrylic podiums are an excellent option. Their sleek see-through material keeps eyes focused on the lecturer or presenter as the light appearance breaks down the barrier between the speaker and the audience.

When there is no space in the room for a freestanding model, but you still need a surface that is at a comfortable height for reading notes, a portable podium is the way to go. Tabletop lecterns can transform virtually any table-height surface into a speaking space. This arrangement is perfect for a room that is used for a number of different purposes where a podium is required on a regular but not constant basis. Portable models can easily be kept under a table, in a corner or in a storage closet without taking up very much space.

With a large congregation or student body, it is important to make sure that speakers and lecturers are heard loud and clear. With the aid of a microphone, you get great voice amplification without having to strain. We have mics in a variety of styles so you can find the arrangement that is best suited to your purposes and space.

The basic wireless microphone enables you to enjoy the benefits of amplification, even as you move around a stage or a room. While being able to move around is convenient, having to hold something in your hand can become a nuisance, especially when one is speaking for an extended period of time. Headset microphones provide hands-free use so speakers don't have to hold anything as they present. For those who prefer equipment that is more subtle, tie-clip mics can be clipped right onto the lapel where they are hardly noticeable.

In an age where technology is at everyone's fingertips, sometimes plain old speeches just aren't enough to entice a packed house. If you want to keep up with the times and draw a crowd, you need one of our versatile AV carts. With the capability to play digital slideshows from a laptop that is hooked-up to a projector, you will impress everyone as you provide multimedia demonstrations. With an audio visual cart, you can easily bring technology into the classroom, sanctuary or lecture hall.

Hertz Furniture is proud to bring you the Oklahoma Sound Corp's comprehensive collection of lecterns and podiums. These sleek user-friendly models are built to serve your institution through years of speeches, lectures, services and presentations. With the right furniture, you can make any presenter feel like a valued asset to your company, school or house of worship.
