When it comes to organising a funeral, wake, or memorial service, audio-visual (AV) equipment can play an important role in helping to create a meaningful and memorable event. PA Hire Norwich offers a range of equipment and services to support the needs of these types of events.

The most common types of AV equipment hired for funerals wakes, and memorials include sound systems, microphones, projectors, tv screens and hardware for live streaming. A sound system is essential for providing clear and audible audio during speeches, music, or video presentations. Microphones can be used by speakers and performers to ensure their voices are heard clearly by all attendees.

Projectors and TV screens can be used to display photos, videos, or other visual content that pays tribute to the person who has passed away. This can include a slideshow of memorable moments, video messages from loved ones, or a live stream of the service for those who are unable to attend in person. AV hire companies can provide a range of projection options to suit the size of the venue and the needs of the event.

We can also provide lighting equipment to create a suitable atmosphere for the event. This can include dimmer switches, coloured lighting, and spotlights to draw attention to specific areas or individuals.

We understand the importance of compassion and understanding required to professionally facilitate these types of events with experienced staff, often working alongside the funeral director or event organiser to ensure that the equipment is suitable for the venue and the event’s requirements and often working within a complex schedule.

Our aim is to create a fitting tribute to the person who has passed away and ensure that their memory lives on.


Live-streaming a funeral can offer a number of benefits for those who are unable to attend the service in person. In many cases, live streaming has become an increasingly popular option for funerals in recent years, particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on large gatherings. One of the main reasons to live stream a funeral is to enable friends and family members who are unable to attend in person to participate in the service. This could include those who live too far away to travel, are unable to leave home due to illness or disability, or are in quarantine or self-isolation. By live streaming the service, these individuals can still feel a sense of connection and be part of the ceremony, even if they are not physically present.

Live streaming a funeral can also help to reduce the pressure on attendees to travel long distances or make arrangements for childcare, particularly if the service is held at a time that may be difficult for some people to attend. It can also enable those who may be emotionally overwhelmed by the occasion to participate in a way that feels more comfortable for them, from the privacy of their own homes. Another benefit of live-streaming a funeral is that it can provide a permanent record of the service. This can be particularly meaningful for those who are unable to attend, as they can watch the recording at a later date and feel as though they were part of the ceremony. It can also be a source of comfort for the bereaved family, who may wish to keep a record of the service for their own personal memories.

Overall, live streaming a funeral can provide a way to bring together family and friends from around the world, enable those who are unable to attend in person to feel connected to the ceremony, and provide a lasting record of the service for future generations.
