Invest Your Summer in Audio Visual Exploration

May 28, 2012

audio adaptersMultimedia broadcasting and recording have really exploded for the amateur that wants to explore these areas. It is no longer an exclusively professional endeavor to create your own album or music video, nor do you have to wait to be discovered before you produce your own comedy show. YouTube videos receive viral status based on viewer interest, not executive approval, and summer is the ideal time for a teen with time on his hands to try those hands at media endeavors. 

So what do you need to get started?

Proper equipment can help in the process, as audio adapters and stereo adapters provide the connections needed to make the equipment you have work for the purposes you have in mind. Find a good source for your stereo adapters so that you will have clear sound. Audio adapters allow you to connect your electronic instruments to your own speaker system, creating the audio you need. Whether you are working with your smartphone or your parents’ camcorder, you can work with a trial and error approach in order to create interesting audio and visual effects.

As you find interesting ways to create the multimedia production of your choice, you may just become an overnight sensation. One viral hit is all it takes!

May 18, 2012

It’s not just high school grads who need a gift bag when they move up and onwards! College graduates often move into their first apartment or first not-so great apartment once they leave the nest and start to live a life in the real world. Lend a helping hand by preparing these graduates with the tools they need to survive in the real world.

Protective pieces. Keystone inserts for those shady rooms with exposed wall plate units. There’s nothing more dangerous than exposed wiring or holes, so make sure that your graduate is safe with covered jacks.

The perfect entertainment system. Was a new flat screen TV and BluRay player on the graduate gift list? Remember to get them all the necessary mounting equipment and cables to connect it all. HDMI cables are always a must for the newest media systems!

Tape, tape, lots of tape. Electrical tape, duck tape, masking tape, they’re all essentials at some point. Buy yourself packing tape so you can send lots of care packages their way!

Tiny toolkits. While toolboxes are typically a ‘new couple,’ ‘new house,’ or wedding present, a smaller starter toolkit will go a long way for a new apartment. Screws, hammers, tape measure, and any other basics can help add comfort to the new place.
