Why Is Audio Restoration Software Important?

Ever wonder what it takes for music, film and television to sound so clear and pleasing to our ears? We can guarantee that the first audio recording is not what you hear as the final product. Just think of how the air conditioning units, electrical buzzing from the power supply and car sirens or horns in the background would sound in the final production of your favorite song or movie. You can thank expert audio engineers and their restoration software for taking care of these undesirable sounds and creating “music to your ears”!

With home recording on the rise due to factors such as low budgets and little time, “dirty audio” is becoming more prevalent as well. Just think, while you may decide to belt out your latest song in your room it wasn’t built to filter out extraneous sounds.

That’s why you need to call in the experts who have a plethora of knowledge with audio restoration software. That’s where we come in! Our audio engineers have the latest technology and know exactly what it takes to make your event sound spectacular. We’ll provide you with the crystal clear sound you have been searching for!

The Future of Audio News

If you had to guess the most popular way people listen to audio in their cars which method would you choose? With so many options, from satellite radio to smartphone streaming, chances are you wouldn’t choose traditional terrestrial radio, right? After all, more and more new cars are making it possible to connect to the internet where you can access just about anything, and we mean anything!

While some believe traditional radio news is on the verge of becoming obsolete, others “see an opportunity to reshape how news and information are conveyed,” according to Current. However, listening to traditional radio news may not be as traditional as you may think. Rivet Radio has created an app accessible via iOS and Android devices where users can set preferences and create news playlists based on what they want to hear as well as their location.

It’s important to keep in mind that we spend lots of time traveling via automobile and we all need something to keep us busy. Although advancements in technology are fast and ever changing, I’m sure we can all agree that we will continue listening to audio in our cars for years and years to come.

If you’re looking for professional audio solutions in New York City, there’s only one number to call: 212-632-5196. CitiView Audio Visual has the tools and expertise to make your event stand out!

Did you know that lighting alone makes up about 12% of global grid based electricity consumption? That’s a lot of energy if you ask us. But if everyone makes the switch over to LEDs, you can see energy savings of up to 70%. Couple energy-efficient bulbs with smart lighting controls and savings could soar to 80%.

What’s more? Switching to LEDs can lead to an increased feeling of safety with white light, they provide a better working environment and increase performance both in learning and working! At CitiView Audio Visual, we have made the switch and boy are we glad we did!

Lighting is one of the most important aspects of your live event and LED lighting is not only the green choice, it’s the best choice! Contact us today at 212-632-5196 to learn more!
