Media Servers For Live Events - Combining Science and Art to Make Magic Happen.

The growing use of digital footage and/or animation technology in live performance environments such as theatre, corporate events, dance, installations and music shows over the past few years has led to the development of media servers designed specifically for live events. There seems to be no end to the spectacular visual effects that can be created with this technology as it is continually evolving. Often it is the team work of the designer and their programmer that produces amazing results. Facilitated by ALIA President and Lighting Designer Rohan Thornton, this panel of leading lighting, video and projection designers and their programmers will share their experiences with the technology. The discussion will cover the process and workflow they follow in different live event situations including live music concert, theatre production, television and installation projection to ensure the creative vision is delivered – everytime!

Meyer Sounds Constellation addresses a problem most performance venues suffer from: the need For multi‐functionality. The problem is, multi‐function venues often end up being ‘no‐function’ or ‘multi‐ compromise’ venues — at least from an acoustical perspective. Learn how electroacoustic architecture systems are changing the way venues are designed.
