Do-It-Yourself ARS rentals are simple and affordable. A blue box (or more) arrives on site with everything you need:
- ARS clickers (with backup)
- Receivers (with backup)
- USB cables and extension cords
- Return label
All you have to do is download the software and perhaps signup for a bit of training, if you feel you don’t have the time to explore everything by yourself. Check out the contents of the box below.
- Ensure full battery
- Limit distracting apps
- Force a specific Wi-Fi connection
- Allow for a consistent experience
We can make sure that they are always charged, have backups for the unexpected, and limit the activity on them to your business and not games, email, or football-watching.
Our CloudVOTE mobile polling service streams your slides directly to the audience and offers single-vote, multi-vote, and free-form text answers. You have an option to do the polling anonymously, or with two kinds of participant lists – free-form, optional entry, or restrictive, secure list where only those who need to sign in are allowed to vote.
The instructions for the audience to join a session couldn’t be easier: “Go to cloudvote.com, click on Join Session, and enter the Join Code”

- You can make your event interesting and relevant

Don’t hesitate and send us an email, or give us a quick call, so we can start the next journey with you as soon as possible.
Our EZ-VOTE Connect Suite comes with multiple apps that suit your style and can integrate with PowerPoint, or Prezi, let you play a Jeopardy-like game, or do town hall-style voting quickly and efficiently. Download it for free and test the functionality. You can even request a demo kit to test the hardware – that’s free, as well!
If you just want to see how the software works and if it works for your event, schedule a demo with us and we’ll walk you through it. That way, you know what you’re getting into. You’ll see how easy the software is, but if DIY isn’t for you, we can still send our staff to your event and make sure everything integrates into your event production smoothly.
We think that you will get a great value out of renting our audience response equipment. Just compare how much more benefit you’ll receive from a single-day rental price compared to other typical event necessities like food or chairs.
If you’re looking for modern audience response rentals, look no further. Our fleet of iPads with CloudVOTE mobile polling and texting app is a perfect companion event app where you can collect candid, anonymous feedback from your audience. Ask specific questions, share your presentation content directly on their iPad screens, and collect free-form text messages at any point – not just during a polling period.
With our partners, we can help you equip your whole event. From audio-video rentals, to corporate photography and some very cool and interesting gadgets, you will not have to shop around and run around to put a show together. It’s already here.
We understand you may need custom graphics applied to these types of results display. We can work with your own designers, or you can tell us what you need and we’ll come up with design that’s right for you…The real-time data stream from our system can be easily customized through JSON files and used in your application instantaneously.
Live Surgery with Polling
Every year in January, a group of surgeons escapes to beautiful, warm Miami for some R&R and educational session where live surgery streamed to the screen is supplemented by a display of real-time polling and results of questions from the panel of experts.
National Sales Meeting
One of the Big 4 (accounting firms) hired us to do their worldwide partner meeting in Orlando. The questions answered at the meeting literally helped save the company $1,000,000 when they decided on cutting certain costs over the next 4 years.
During this annual event, we travel to the next location of a major worldwide charity, where we assist in electing the top-ranking officers. We process thousands of votes in a matter of seconds to deliver accurate election results, as well as impromptu amendments (and amendments to amendments) with ease. Accuracy is verified by a review panel and submitted in near-real-time to the election board. It doesn’t hurt that the client saved $40,000 by cutting the meeting by one day due to speedy electronic election process.
Remote-Controlled Multisite Training
A major east-coast bank hired us to provide a multi-city audience response solution for their sales meeting. Our representative in each location set up and connected the audience response system to the dedicated internet lines for a flawless presentation with competitive questions, where teams were playing against each other as part of a team-building exercise.
Explore the world of interactive audience response events that Meridia managed since 1970. We have been to over 30 countries on 6 continents, and rented over 1,100,000 wireless keypads and counting…
