Whether you’ve got a high-school senior stepping into adulthood or a college graduate stepping into the job market, those diplomas and degrees deserve to be celebrated in a big way – and there’s no bigger way than projecting them onto your backyard theater system at a graduation party. 

Obviously you’ll need to do some videography to create a personalized graduation video to show at your party. Modern consumer-level cameras do an astonishingly good job of capturing smooth high-definition video. But if you don’t feel like buying/borrowing/renting a camera and entrusting the shoot to your own hands, you can always hire a professional videographer who has even better equipment (plus a wealth of experience at getting the perfect shots). Once you or the videographer has assembled the finished video, you’ve got a very special treat to serve up as the centerpiece of your graduation party. 

Is the graduation ceremony taking place at a really big institution such as a state university? If so, then you’ve got opportunities to record some amazing images, from sweeping panoramas of the school grounds to oceans of students in matching robes and mortarboards, not to mention the huge crowds of proud family members and well-wishing friends abuzz with excitement. Hugs, embraces, cheers, tears – you can capture them all to demonstrate the sheer scale of the event.

Want to add a nifty extra element to your graduation party’s big-screen treatment? Grab video at the graduation party – including video of your guests watching video of the graduation ceremony on your outdoor theater system. You can then edit this additional footage into a special “Director’s Cut” for the guests. You might even plug your camera into the Optoma projector’s HDMI port to display live coverage of your party. It’s a big moment – so get it on the big screen!

You might associate an outdoor theater system with big-time fun and entertainment, and rightly so. But have you thought about the potential for using one in your business? Sometimes the big-screen treatment is exactly what you need to get your message across to employees, trainees, vendor partners or prospective clients – and Backyard Theater Systems has everything you need to make it happen.

You can use your backyard theater system for any type of visual presentation you would normally use an in-house setup to display, including video clips, live video feeds, and of the ubiquitous PowerPoint slideshows. But unlike traditional piecemeal systems, a Backyard Theater Systems setup comes as a complete, portable, self-contained package that can go from conference room to employee lounge to banquet hall – or to another facility entirely – with only a few minutes of assembly/teardown time. And after all, time is money in the business world!

If you’ve always relied on your host facility’s audiovisual resources when giving a presentation away from your own workplace, you’ve been rolling the dice. It’s all too easy to discover at the last second that there’s no projector, the screen is too small, or you’re missing some critical connector or cable. If you’re presenting to a large crowd, the existing system may simply be inadequate to the task.

That’s when you’ll thank your lucky stars you have your own portable setup. For instance, if you’re packing our SilverScreen Showcase Series, you’ll always know you’ve got a 16′ or 20′ QuikScreen, a powerful Optoma projector, and a pair of 10” speakers on stands, positioned at just the right height for maximum clarity. Or you can choose our Indoor/Outdoor Series if you know you’ll mostly be playing to smaller audiences. Whatever your needs, Backyard Theater Systems’ multimedia packages can help bring your business to life!
