AV For You proudly provided Audio, Video and Lighting for a company Awards Show for U.S. Foods at Aria in Downtown Minneapolis.

For Audio we used two of our JBL VRX Line Array Speakers and four of our QSC K10s to distribute even sound throughout the venue. We also set up our Shure podium microphones on our frosted podium.

For video we rear projected two Eiki 7kHD projectors onto two of our Draper 6.75×12 fastfold screens. We also rear projected another Eiki 7kHD onto our Dalite 8×14 fastfold screen center of the stage. We were able to do a split screen show using our powerful new Analog Way Nextage08 video switcher. We provided a 40″ confidence monitor as well, to be seen by those speaking from the stage.

For lighting we set up 18 of our ADJ Flat Par LED lights in the catwalk to shine down onto the venue creating ambience for the event. We also set up 5 ETC Source 4s to provide light on the stage as well as spotlights for the VIP section and a window from which awards were to be presented. We placed two Elation Powerspot Moving Head Lights on 5′ truss towers on each side of the stage. This was for Bally light sequences during the awards show.

At the tech table we had the Behringer X32 Digital Mixer, along with our Shure QLXD4 and UHF-R Wireless Mic Racks. We had the Analog Way Nextage08 Video Switcher, Delvcam 4K Ultra HD Monitor and Playback Pro. We also had our ETC Element Lighting Console for advanced lighting control over LEDs and Movers.

AV For You provided Audio, Staging and Lighting for Health Foundations Every Woman Can Event, a fundraiser and concert held at Aria in Downtown Minneapolis.

For audio we provided the main sound system which was used for a musical performance by national act the Indigo Girls. The sound system used 12 of our dB technologies DVA T4 speakers making up a total of 16 speakers which were rigged from the catwalk at the venue. We also provided two of our QSC K10 speakers as front fill and two more K10 speakers for preshow music in the lobby area.
We set up a large amount of staging, using 18 of our 4×4 stage decks with 24″ legs to help create a stage big enough for two musical acts. We provided three panels of our black pipe and drape to create a hidden corner for the guitar tech equipment. Also the drape created an area from which the talent could walk onstage.
We set up a large amount of lighting as well, using 14 of our ETC Source 4 lights for a bright and well saturated stage wash. We also used 2 of our Source 4 lights for gobos. One was the Every Woman Can gobo above the stage and the other was for Health Foundations on the center of the adjacent wall. We also provided our ETC smartfade lighting console to control the stage wash from the front of house.
