Audio Visual Staging

Useful Links

Onscreen Presentations & Hire was founded in February 2000 after twelve years of service to a highly specialised market in the audio-visual staging, video and photographic fields all of which are an essential part of conference organization. Since then, we have worked extensively in audio-visual productions, as well as slide and video presentations and allied services for a range of clients from the medical profession, academic institutions, the corporate field and the public sector, including key government departments.

Our key, fully integrated multimedia services include:

  • Video productions
  • Computerised video editing
  • DVD/CD high speed duplication
  • Mpeg video creation which can be used in Powerpoint presentations
  • Computer generated Powerpoint 35mm slides ??
  • Commercial photography on digital or film formats

Our company has been appointed as a preferred subcontracted service provider by some of South Africa’s leading events management companies for the past five years. Despite fierce competition in the industry, we have consistently had clients return for our high quality and reliable service.

In our ten years of operation we have invested over R3,5m in specialized industry-standard equipment which gives us a competitive edge over other players in the industry. This eliminates the need for outsourcing. Onscreen Presentations, as a 100% black-owned company, has also developed a social responsibility profile by virtue of its corporate social investment in community projects. These include cultural events, economic empowerment projects and educational institutions.

We also provide in-service training for semi-skilled and skilled young sound engineers who seek opportunities for advancement in the industry. With the advancement of technology and the introduction of the multimedia solutions industry, the business has diversified and grown into a dynamic service that incorporates a variety of skills and services that are usually outsourced by businesses and institutions.
