CUSTOM SCENIC: EXPERIENTIAL CAMPAIGN BUILD
Take a walk with us into a unique space to see a custom scenic build that we completed in the blink of an eye! With little time, and a large task to finish, our scenic, creative, logistics and production teams all banded together to complete this project on time and on budget.
We were tasked with creating a custom, modular, interlocking wall system that allowed numerous rooms to be built in a flash. In efforts to complete this project effectively, the scenic needed to be durable, ship efficiently and assembled easily by our on-site team.
To communicate the theme of each room, our graphics team supported the design of scenic application, and pre- production proofs of the digital files that were either direct to print or applied vinyl. Once these graphics were provided, our scenic team then labeled and organized hundreds of panels for an effective set-up and strike.
CREATING A MULTI-FUNCTIONAL SCENIC SPACE
Our DC metro location supported a national investment association to host their 2015 general membership meeting at the Marriot Wardman Park. Our virtual set solution allowed us to transform the ballroom into a general session, luncheon and company gala look with a few simple switches. Along with scenic, LSAV was able to provide full AV, content creation, management and production.
COMING TOGETHER TO SUPPORT AND INSPIRE
LSAV and AWHONN (Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses) partnered together this summer for a successful 2015 leadership conference. Upon entering the event, guests were directed with digital signage that displayed registration information, an event timeline and greeted with a social media feed to highlight the best moments of the conference.
The AWHONN message and brand wrapped itself around the audience with cool lighting tones and projection mapping that made it possible to transition from a general session design to an awards gala atmosphere.
A LARGER THAN LIFE PRODUCTION
ORANGE COUNTY CONVENTION CENTER - ORLANDO, FL
LSAV collaborated with their client and event producer Flirt Communications, to assist in the design, operation and execution of this high energy sales conference. The event featured a 120’ wide center screen which was outlined by numerous, boldly lit scenic elements.
LSAV AT IMTS: EXHIBITING EXCELLENCE
This September, LSAV provided video, lighting and audio support for an exhibit, at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago’s McCormick Place. LSAV supported a 20,000 square foot double-decker installation with over 1,000 feet of truss, motors, moving heads, LED fixtures, full sound re-enforcement and multiple high resolution LED walls.
The LSAV team spent multiple weeks involved in the planning, installation and execution
of this successful event.
STAYING CONNECTED AND ENGAGED
Nothing is better for the LSAV team than seeing one of our solutions used to great effect at client’s event. Case in point: this year’s AWHONN 2014 Conference, in which LSAV provided our premiere social media aggregation solution, Live Mix, for the 5-day conference. Over the course of those five days, AWHONN’s members were able to easily post, tweet, share and network with each other using the #AWHONN14 hashtag, as well as see their contributions to the social community on the big screen. Talk about engagement!
LSAV fully supported a private, charitable event for United Airlines employees in a 72,000 square foot airline hangar at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. LSAV designed, staged, and executed five unique areas of focus including sections for an awards ceremony, dining, gaming, live entertainment, and the belle of the ball—a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. LSAV designers engineered a central cluster with a 25 foot diameter, 12.5 feet high circular screen and stage with LSAV’s DecoTec tensioned-fabric system to soften the audio dynamics of the massive space.
Additionally, LSAV produced the sound and lighting for the outside red carpet, live band stage, silent auction, award ceremony, car giveaway, and photo ops with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Truss, automated lighting, technical support, and large-format monitors were used to support these various functions. All-in-all, LSAV’s immersive solutions thrilled the hundreds of attendees and proved the event a great success.
THE SKY IS THE LIMIT FOR CREATIVITY
LSAV excels at designing floor plans of any size, including small and non-standard room layouts. We maximize a room’s potential and take advantage of the unique architecture features that lend themselves to successful projection, lighting, and scenic opportunities.
We offer custom-built projector stands that blend into a room’s architecture along with our modular systems to design and secure any scenic wall or screen into the desired space. We may even use the ceiling to enhance the experience—the sky’s the limit!
LSAV had a major presence at ProMat 2013 held at the McCormick Place in Chicago. We created the scenic set design and supported the material handling for the general session which featured keynote speaker Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media, Steve Forbes. We also provided full audiovisual support for all of the meeting rooms and custom-built exhibit floor education theaters, providing the state of the art equipment necessary.
Across the entire event, LSAV recorded multimedia presentations for the Promat website, created and installed a promotional LED display wall with custom printed event graphics, and updated event schedules, show highlights, and presentation graphics on a daily basis.
More than 500 event-marketing professionals came together for the prestigious Event Marketing Summit sponsored by Red 7 Media at the Sheraton, Chicago. LSAV was proud to showcase our modular scenic systems in front of the nation’s leading event and marketing strategists.
We were also eager to demonstrate our full video, audio, and lighting capabilities for general sessions, awards banquets, and workshop tracks. Our experienced project managers supervised the local union labor team to ensure a well-choreographed and cost-controlled installation and execution.
As a trusted partner, LSAV and United Airlines work closely together to produce and stage United’s annual conferences and special functions year after year. From leadership meetings to airport hangar events, we immerse our services in as many as 75 productions a year. United appreciates the high-quality audiovisual solutions and creative processes that LSAV provides especially the imaginative scenic designs and interactive technologies that always produce successfully staged events.
HOW SWEET IT IS: SWEET ADELINES
Each year Sweet Adelines holds their international singing competition in a large-scale arena. LSAV’s staging is designed to incorporate singing groups of all sizes, from quartets to choruses of 150, or more. Our massive audio system is carefully designed to amplify the singers’ voices for the audience of 10,000, but keeps it compact enough so as not to be seen.
LSAV’s experienced rigging designers engineer an overhead truss layout to support drapery and lighting flawlessly. Our scenic design incorporates white sheer fabric drapery to create an eye-catching backdrop, while forming a dramatic ceiling affect. Our staging skills and creative involvement have kept our client loyal for over 15 years.
PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION NIGHT 2012
LSAV proudly provided audiovisual staging support for President Barack Obama’s 2012 election night celebration at the McCormick Place in Chicago. Providing 2,500 feet of truss, over 100 motors, multiple projection screens, video monitors, and sound systems, we were able to transform the raw space of the convention center into various glamorous receptions, parties, and private viewing areas for President Obama and all of his guests.
IBS NEWYORK 2013
LSAV was excited to be a part of the world-renowned International Beauty Show (IBS) in New York again this year. With a classic fashion runway set, we incorporated a high-impact scenic design, incorporated with two main screens, and three center-stage projection surfaces allowing for multiple placements of IBS New York 2013 branding, graphics, and video.
A BOLD MODERN LOOK
As widescreen projection becomes more standard in the event industry, the need to further develop the design continues. This 103’ ultra-modern, concave projection screen is the perfect surface to challenge our projectionists, projectors, and video systems with effects that are made possible by warping and blending graphics and video. Multiple stacks of Barco HDX projectors as well as other equipment and support continue to set us apart in the industry.
SLEEK SCENIC DESIGN
The incorporation of simple scenic flats and projection mapping created a lively and very useful surface for video content and full motion graphics at this event. Additionally, the use of bezel-less, “floating” projection screens and elegant lighting created a modern, fresh, and impressive look for this event’s general session.
