Old and New Technology
There were so many cool things at InfoComm! First off, there were a LOT of video walls. We’re starting to see LED technology become more universal. As more and more people embrace the LED, the focus has turned to fine-tuning it. We really liked the mesh walls you could line a truss with. It’s similar to a ticker that goes around the seating sections of an arena. We’d love to be able to line all of the trussing on any given show with the video mesh for added effect.
Throughout InfoComm, we noticed the excitement and tension in the air. The next big thing is going to be released soon and we’re all waiting for the moment when it happens.
In preparation, anyone still using and distributing old technology, such as projectors, are looking to sell these items. Now may be the time to get a deal.
Trending and Future Technology
There’s no green tech yet, but it is coming. There are a number of new technologies (out within the past few years) where we haven’t even scratched the surface in what they can fully do.
Sunbelt’s solar-powered light tower is one such example. The Tesla battery is another newer technology which could eventually be incorporated into the event & lighting industry. That would be revolutionary. Harnessing the power from the sun and turning it into event lighting is one of Bay Stage Live’s ultimate goals.
We also sense hologram technology will be improved on, maybe in a year or two. Right now, it’s very limited. We’re just getting to a place where we can do some cool stuff.
We’ve been waiting for the day when the lighting expert and video expert become the same person. It looks like that’s happening now. As all of the LED video technology continues to be used for lighting effects, the lighting professional must be well-versed in LED video technology in order to keep up with the times.
Understanding technology trends and how to use them to make your event incredible – is our job. If you would like our help in creating your next event, call us at (813) 877-1089.
