Can I rent individual products at BeamSystems?
Almost all the equipment BeamSystems rents out, can be rented individually. Just for one day, or for several months. We gladly think along with choosing the right model, that handy tripod, and the right cabling.
Will all the equipment I rent be tested in advance?
All products returning to our wharehouse are inventoried and tested in our testing room. In our administration, we accurately keep track of the number of lamphours of projectors. After that, the complete and tested equipment is returned to the wharehouse, where it will be ready for pick up or delivery.
Do I pay the same rental price for each day?
When equipment is rented for more than a day, we apply a discount. This means that you will pay the daily price for the first day, and a percentage of this price for the following days. Especially when you rent equipment for over a week discount can increase.
Can I rent equipment per hour or per shift?
All our equipment is rented out for at least one day. Due to our quality control, it is not possible to rent it out for less than the daily price.
How do I know what cabling I need in order to connect everything?
Having the right cabling is key. Unfortunately, there is a lot of unreliable supply is in the running. The cabling and adapters on offer continue to develop. In order to be sure that you use the appropriate cabling for products and that you connect the equipment fault-free, we gladly advice you in choosing the right cabling. On request, we can also make a cablingplan, including spare cables.
Why choose BeamSystems?
Developing the right light design and soundplan is a profession in itself, as is the display of film and the playback of content. The right knowledge of players and codecs is key for ensuring smoothly running display. For instance, different projectors often vary in colour differences. We make sure that they are adjusted perfectly, so the colour will be the same.
Do you also create content, such as leaders, bumpers, or even complete videomapping for productions?
In corporation with our creative agency BeamLab, we are able to provide a complete presentation for each situation. Depending on the order and the desired style, a skilled team is composed, where BeamSystems delivers the hardware.

For the bigger productions a site visit is indispensable, even when detailed maps and CAD drawings are available. The sooner we are involved in the production, the better we are able to give accurate advice in achieving the best result.
Why should I purchase equipment from BeamSystems specifially?

Thanks to our longstanding experience in renting out equipment, our technical team knows the equipment from both inside, and out.

An important advantage is that customers purchasing from BeamSystems, will get a 70% discount on the rental of replacement products, in the unlikely event that products are defect, or in need of service. Furthermore, we offer a lot of possibilities in additional service. Our delivery varies from an individual projector in a custom-made flightcase, to a complete design and furnishing of spaces.
