The pace of change is increasing all the time, but you can rest assured that Audiovisual.ie and its parent company will stay abreast of changes and developments in the technology and the industry. We’ve been in this game for over fifty years and we are looking forward to the next fifty!
Renting The Very Latest In AV Gear
We love what we do. Every time a new piece of technology comes on the market, we are excited about it and eager to share it with our customers. It’s our goal to make your life easier by renting the very latest in AV gear. This means ever increasing user-friendliness and improved performance.
It All Started in 1968 With The Projector
Let’s have a brief look at some of the major developments in the evolution of our business over the last fifty years. Ok, so it all started in 1968 with the projector. We began with the 16mm projector and for the first ten years or so it was all about projectors. In 1970, the 8mm projector arrived, followed by the slide projector in 1971, the overhead projector in 1974 and the filmstrip projector in 1975.
Branding Out Into Other AV Gear
In the early 70s, we also branched out into other technology such as the Coomber multi-sound centre and even the microscope. In 1977, the cassette tape arrived, and this was followed a few years later by the VHS cassette and player. By the early 90s the Epidiascope had arrived as well as the LCD panel and projector. In 1995, the interactive whiteboard came on the scene. From here the pace of change really picks up and the business expands rapidly.
New Departments & Technologies
In 1999, ToomeyAV installation dept is launched. In 2000, we start offering technology for video conferencing. The plasma screen arrives in 2001, followed by the portable high-resolution projector in 2003. In 2006, our rental dept is launched. Since then technology has evolved at an incredible rate. We see the advent of digital signage players, HDMI, the interactive flat screen, wireless connectivity and 4k resolution.

We pride ourselves with being at the forefront of the ever-evolving audio-visual industry. If we think our customers will benefit significantly from a new piece of technology, we will offer it.
