AV Concepts can provide audio-visual services just about anywhere, as evidenced at the American Specialty Health (ASH) 2008 Awards Banquet. ASH invited everyone to the esteemed USS Midway to provide a little pomp and circumstance for their annual awards banquet in March. They wanted to host a banquet that was outside of a normal hotel meeting venue and do something out of the ordinary for this event, so AV Concepts was there to help make a little Midway Magic. "Midway Magic" was a term known throughout the Navy for the USS Midway, as it steamed through a 47-year career of service to country. The carrier was commissioned in 1945 and served as a flagship in Desert Storm in 1991. No other carrier served as long as the USS Midway.
Providing audio, video, and lighting onboard, AV Concepts designed two 9-point spandex panels on truss frame set pieces to accommodate the show coordinators’ request for a unique look for the unusual historic venue. “The banquet went off without a hitch—it was perfect,” comments Rebekah Snell, senior marketing operations coordinator for ASH.
AV Concepts supplied (2) Christie LX-100 10k Data Projectors, and (2) 4.6-6.0:1 Christie LX-100 Zooms, along with a Presentation Pro Switcher for the event video, as well as an array of EAW KF 300 speakers for audio and gobo lighting.
