What You Need To Know About InfoComm 2015

InfoComm1 resizedInfoComm is a yearly executive conference exclusively available to live events professionals like Bay Stage Live! Here’s an inside look at what’s old and new in live event technology.

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.

Why You Should Let a PRO Light Your Event

What’s the difference between a good event and an amazing event? Details.

When you put on an event you want it to be memorable for the right reasons and you certainly don’t want it to be mediocre. Hiring a professional to light your event or production can make a world of difference and make you look great!

How many events have you been to where the production or lighting was just okay and it was the DJ or the venue that did it? You may not know the answer to that question but based on our experience, a DJ is busy getting people on the dance floor and the venue wants to make sure your food comes out on time and that everyone has a seat at a table. The production is often an afterthought.

A lighting professional knows what little nuances in productions or live events can make or break the event. They know how to run the equipment and what will look best for every different occasion and setting. Why waste time figuring it out yourself or putting it in the hands of someone who doesn’t do this type of work for a living.

We are experts at addressing factors that you most likely wouldn’t consider. Through the years we have been through every situation, room set up, production challenge, and type of event. We have the answer for every question and the creativity to make your event seem like one of a kind. We’ll work within your budget to optimize your event lighting and make sure you get the best return on your investment.

Let us do what we do best, make you look great and ensure a fantastic event. It’s all in the details and we have them all covered.
