Drive-in clip art Theater Audience Audio Video Equipment Rental Home Page


Blue Planet is the ONLY A/V rental house in Key West and virtually the only rental house that details equipment and rental rates. This is a small market and most people bring their own equipment or rent in Miami, thus we have a limited selection. However, we are much less expensive than any Miami or other rental house (especially considering shipping & insurance) and if you need something in a hurry we are the only company that can help you today. We are also the only company that offers local support. We are one of the very few rental houses anywhere that does not require a large deposit tying up the funds on your credit card.

Delivery and pickup in Key West area only $20.00. Half-Day Rental 4 hrs. Daily Rental 8 Hrs. and 24 Hr. Rental rates available. Longer term rentals are quoted individually. Renters must be over 18, have DL and credit card or PayPal account. All rentals in one order package must be for the same length of time. See Terms and Conditions page.

TVs are great and all, but if you want really epic entertainment, you need a projector. Ideally you will also have a screen of 100 or more inches of high-definition awesomeness. TVs just don't compare to a quality projector and screen, and at 80 inches or more, TV's are just not economical or easy to use in a rental environment.
