AV For You provided Audio, Video and Lighting for the 2017 Philanthropy in Action Conference held by Minnesota Council on Foundations at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Downtown Minneapolis.

The Philanthropy in Action Conference is a yearly event where grantmakers come together to learn about new ideas and tools that will push their work forward, take action, and create change.

For Audio we provided 4 JBL VRX Speakers spread throughout the room on stands. We also provided our Audio-Technica Podium Microphones on our Frosted Podium.
For Video we front projected two Eiki 7kHD Projectors from towers in the back of the room onto our Da-Lite 8′ x 14′ Fastfold Screens. We also provided a 40″ Monitor as a confidence monitor for those speaking onstage.
For Lighting we used 6 of our ETC Source 4 lights from a single 13′ Tower from the back of the room to provide even coverage of light on the stage. We also set up 8 of our ADJ Flat Par Uplights to provide a colorful backdrop on the 20′ of grey drape that we set up behind the stage.
At the tech table we were using two of our Shure QLXD4 Wireless Microphone Racks, the Behringer X32 Producer Digital Mixer, a ETC Smartfade Console, a Playback Pro laptop for Video Rolls, and an Analog Way Quickvu Video Switcher for basic video switching.

New Years Eve at Dayblock Brewing for GetKnit Events

AV For You rental pic

AV For You set up video for GetKnit’s New Years Eve Event at Dayblock Brewing. The event coordinator wanted to send the Visual DJ’s video signal to the mounted projector in the room he was performing. He also wanted to send that same video signal to all of the LED Monitors in the venue so that everyone could see the visuals and a New Year’s countdown clock.

In order to do this we used 7 Decimator MD-HX Converters (to convert between HDMI and HD-SDI signals), 1 HD-SDI DA (to split the video signal) and we ran varying lengths of HD-SDI cabling between the monitors and projector. In the end we were able to input the same signal to all the different sources and achieve simultaneous visuals for the entire venue.
