Transformation Tuesday – Jefferson Theater

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Greetings from The AV Company!

Welcome to our fourth installment in our Transformation Tuesday series! This week we’ll be looking at a space with loads of Charlottesville character, the Jefferson Theater. The theater was established in 1912 as a live performance theater that hosted silent movies, vaudeville acts, and a historic list of performers. Though frequently used for concerts today, this theater has the potential to be transformed into the perfect venue for many types of events!

Take a look at how we were able to transform the space for a gala a couple of years ago! With the help of some projected film stills and patterns and some fun, energetic lighting, the Jefferson becomes a fantastic setting for the Virginia Film Festival‘s opening night festivities!

September Update – Digital Annotation System

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Greetings from The AV Company!

Things are picking up for us this month, and we are looking forward to a fantastic fall full of exciting projects! As things get busier, we are looking for ways to increase efficiency and make communication easier for our clients. One tool that we are excited to implement is our new digital annotation system! Using specialized wireless presentation tools from Crestron, Extron, and Mersive, we have devised a system that allows presenters to interact with their presentation material in real time – think of it as a digital whiteboard! This opens up lots of new opportunities for audience participation, annotation storage, and content sharing!

Our system utilizes Crestron AirMedia to share content, an Extron Annotator 300 that provides a wide range of annotation tools, and Mersive software that allows wireless connection between a wide range of devices. This system fosters collaboration and decision-making, and smooths out the process of presenting and discussing information.
