We offer years of experience with state-of-the-art lighting technology, designing and installing powerfully effective design and production solutions. Our expert team helps you set the tone and will execute your event flawlessly and with absolute professionalism.
Professionally lighting a room can often make the difference between a regular event and one that helps captivate your audience, enhance your message and is remembered long after the event is over.
The graphics and multimedia production team can provide complete creative services for your event. From marketing materials such as registration websites, logo design and invitations, to onsite environmental graphics, signage and video, we ensure that every aspect of your event is consistent with your brand and messaging.
Today’s corporate events rely on video as part of their audience presentation. Our team of onsite video directors and operators ensure your message is seen by your audience.
Having the ability to digitally share your event with others is critical. Our proprietary based system, FiftyView captures your presentation’s audio and visuals allowing you to share your message or archive it for future reference. This can range from a simple Powerpoint to a complicated three camera shoot. Our secure servers provide efficient file transfers of your event direct to you.
We can provide you with a copy of your event immediately after or push it out for you. We also offer in-house capabilities to edit what is sent out from your event.
The delivery of your message is arguably the most important part of your event. Our creative team will work direct with you to produce a high impact Powerpoint presentation that will captivate your audience.
With a seamless integration of text, graphics, video and audio, the final product will be an effective tool to communicate your message. Through our FiftyView content capture, all Powerpoints can be captured with audio. This is great to send to others who did not attend the event and as a training tool.
