We Party Like Rockstars

Monday, October 25th, 2010

A BIG thank you to the Music Resource Center for allowing us to be a part of their ‘Party Like A Rockstar’ event this weekend.  It was a great time for a great cause and we wanted to share some photos of the lighting that we provided.  Another BIG thank you to Rick Trabell for capturing it so beautifully in these photos.  More about the cause from their website…

Customize Your iPad

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

As you have probably gathered from some of our recents posts, we love the iPad.  We have been doing lots of great installations with them lately and are looking forward to many, many more as the technology continues to grow.  Sometimes controlling a space via iPad involves leaving that iPad unattended in the space at times when it’s not a private residence.  This can obviously be a concern for clients given their popularity.

We recently came across what we think could be a great solution and the company is right here in Charlottesville with us!  Ipad Laser Engraving can engrave the back of an iPad with anything from a company logo to a family photo.  It would be pretty hard for anyone else to claim it as theirs.  And, even if you aren’t concerned about securing the iPad, it still looks very cool!

Find out more and check out some of the great projects whey have done on their WEBSITE.  They do iPhones as well!

Small Speakers. Big Sound.

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Picture This: You’re at a wedding ceremony or conference for work where you can hear perfectly  AND there is no large speaker blocking your view of the bride or presenter. Doesn’t happen very often does it?  Well, our featured product this week makes it very possible.  Meet the Bose L1 which is available for rental from The AV Company.

Believe it or not, the small speaker you see below is a unique, all-in-one system that delivers clear, powerful sound throughout small and medium-sized venues for up to 500 people.  Because it’s made by Bose, the sound is even no matter where you are in the room and it eliminates the need for conventions monitors, mixers and PA systems in most cases. 

Contact us today to reserve the Bose L1 for your wedding, event or conference!
