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.

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!

2010 Web Exellency Award Winner!

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

We just found out that our website won the Theatre Seats 2010 Web Exellency Award! A note from the Theatre Seats website:

“Unless you are trained in all the latest audiovisual technologies, know it all from the boardroom to the home theater and everything in-between, it’s best to gain advice from the experts. Since this is likely to be the case, a sound piece of advice would be to read through some blogs for helpful information on true audiovisual specialists. Don’t waste your time with just any blog, though – Hold out for the award winners handpicked by our talented judging team.

The sites listed below will hook you up to the AV specialists that will truly connect you to whatever setup your heart desires. Sometimes it’s best to leave things to the specialists, especially when it comes to technical and altogether expensive equipment, so take the plunge and click your way to some free knowledge and power. You’ll be glad you did.”
