Transformation Tuesday – McArthur Squash Center

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Greetings from The AV Company!

Welcome to our tenth installment in our Transformation Tuesday series! This month, we’ll be taking a look at the McArthur Squash Center at the Boar’s Head Sports Complex! This state-of-the-art facility serves as the home base for the University of Virginia men’s and women’s squash teams. The center features eight singles courts, two doubles courts, and one glass-walled feature court with stadium seating for almost 400 spectators. We were asked to provide an integrated audiovisual system to allow the space to be more adaptable and easier to use.

We were able to transform the user experience of the facility using a variety of new tools! We implemented an iPad-controlled score-keeping system for referees. We installed monitors at each court, all controlled by local iPads that allow one to set up a timer for an exercise, pull up a YouTube video for reference, receive updates on upcoming events, et cetera! We also installed cameras in five of the courts and used the Crestron Capture HD Recorder to allow live streaming both online and to monitors around the facility.


January Update – Live Streaming

Happy New Year from The AV Company!

As we begin the new year, we are looking at ways to help our clients reach wider audiences. One such tool that we often make use of is live streaming. Live streaming is great for connecting audiences, be they participants who cannot make it to your conference or friends who cannot make it to your wedding. In addition, it enables you to easily archive your event footage so that it can be accessed at a later time or distributed for training purposes.

Live streaming also allows you a whole new system for structuring your event! For example: Need to get a message out to a large group, but cannot physically get everyone in one place at one time? The solution might be to rent a space, create a set (see below), and broadcast your presentation directly to your target audience! All the participants have to do is follow a link to our online live stream platform whenever it is convenient for them, and they’ll instantly be able to engage with your event!
