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.


August Update – Custom Fixtures and Decor

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Greetings from The AV Company!

In our office, we always try to keep new, fresh ideas flowing! We enjoy playing with new design concepts that we haven’t seen around yet. So we often find ourselves building custom fixtures and decor for our clients!

One recent example might be the pieces that we built for the NAMIC 2014 Management Conference at the Williamsburg Lodge this past June! One of our client’s requests was to have large rear projection screens surrounded by gold frames that reflected the history and style of the Williamsburg area. Well, as you can imagine, finding frames this size might be rather difficult. So we built some!

We also enjoy building custom lighting fixtures! These fixtures were built for Glass Haus Kitchen by our principal designer. He wanted something that would make an impact while enhancing the unique contemporary feel of the space. We think he succeeded!

•     Expanded furniture rental inventory for events and conferences

Here are a few photos from a conference that we recently provided audio visual support for here in Charlottesville, Virginia.

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!
