Audio/Visual Support for Engaging Breakout Sessions

Conferences are engaging, active events – especially when they include breakout sessions. While your general session is a great place to get the entire team in the same room, breakouts provide more intimate spaces for deep dives into a specific topic, and closer interaction between the presenter and their audience. It's important to keep your breakout sessions engaging, but that can be difficult to do so without the right audio/visual support.

How to Create Multi-Site Interactive Corporate Events

The pandemic was forever changed the way we experience events. The years of endless online meetings have created meeting fatigue, while simultaneously changing audience expectations.

Virtual events provide a lot of flexibility for your company, including reduced travel costs, and the ability for presenters and attendees alike to join from anywhere in the world.

Vehicle Mounted Displays for Outdoor Events

LED display technology is an amazing tool for many applications. LEDs emit their own light rather than reflecting light from a projector, so they're visible in bright environments like exhibit halls or outdoors in full sunlight. They can be viewed from almost any angle, and can be assembled as screens large enough to be suitable for huge crowds.

They also have some serious drawbacks.

Using cameras at your corporate event

Cameras have a lot of uses in the world of corporate events. Whether we are showing your presenters on the big screens, broadcasting a worldwide web stream, or simply recording for archival purposes, having the right cameras set up in the right places allows us to provide exactly what your event needs.

Manned Cameras

The camera setup that provides us the best image quality and usefulness is the manned studio camera. This is a high-end camera, with a large viewfinder and tripod-mounted zoom and focus controls. Having a skilled operator running this camera allows them to smoothly follow on-stage events: zooming, focusing, panning and tilting all at the same time to create the best possible viewing experience.

Why we recommend the gear we do

We can “do” AV at a lot of different levels. At VIP Audio Visual, we work with every client to understand the scope of their event, and the level of the show that they want to produce.

When we provide a quote, we do our best to match the equipment we're providing to the client's needs as we understand them. Many times we get questions from a client wondering why we’ve chosen to include a certain piece of gear. On the surface it may appear that we can get by without that equipment, but our years of experience in the industry have helped us recognize the most common problems that are likely to arise, and the tools we need to avoid them – creating a flawless event for you and your guests.

Filling Dead Air on Your Live Stream

A few years ago, live streaming was new and exciting. Now it’s basically expected. Whether it’s an internal event being broadcast to employees worldwide, or a public event targeted at customers or partners, live stream opportunities have become an essential part of the corporate communications world.

As beneficial as the technology is, your audience likely still has a few gripes. The experience of attending a live event is very different than sitting in front of a monitor at your desk, and most live streams are essentially letting the remote audience “peek in” on the live event.

Passing the Baton: Planning Effective Handoffs Between Presenters

It seems like it should be an easy thing, but in our experience the most-often bungled part of a presentation is the handoff from one presenter to the next. There have been countless scenarios where we’ve seen a speaker finish their talk and just walk offstage, leaving awkward dead air while everyone tries to figure out what to do next. Or, they’ll finish the presentation and look helplessly at the emcee for direction.

Avoid these scenarios by planning how you want to handle your transitions ahead of time. There are a lot of different ways to do this. No one option is better than another - the right answer just depends on how you want to run your event.

Why You Shouldn't Skip Rehearsals

Rehearsals usually seem to fall into one of three categories. They’re either super-organized and regimented, or really casual and disorganized, or they don’t happen at all. Most presenters view them as a waste of time - an interruption in their day that doesn’t accomplish anything. If there’s no organization, that may be true. Here’s how to set up rehearsals to maximize value and minimize time.

Everything you need to know about Lighting

Good sound and video are cornerstones of any effective presentation, but when you’re ready to take your event to the next level, it’s time for lighting.

Stage Lighting

Stage lighting is usually accomplished using ellipsoidal reflector spotlights, commonly referred to as Lekos. These lighting instruments can throw light from some distance away.
