Have you made your New Year’s AV Resolution?
Commit to doing one of these things this year…
Retire all of the 4:3 content.  Do you still have some 4:3 PowerPoint presentations hanging around?  Make 2020 the year to get all your event content switched over to 16:9. We know it can be time consuming to make the change. If you are still using 4:3, chances are your content hasn’t had a complete overhaul in several years and a refresh might be a great idea. Set aside time early and work on small chunks at a time.  If the task just doesn’t fit into your busy schedule, there are resources out there to help like Markey’s Creative Services Team.  Most AV providers have switched to all HD (16:9) screens. Having your content in HD (16:9) will ensure that it fits the screens and monitors perfectly, making it easier for your audience to read and eliminating that awkward black space around the edges of the presentation.
Livestream your event.  Livestreaming is one of the hottest trends in event technology right now.  We have been streaming town halls and corporate addresses for years, but livestreaming now goes way beyond the formal business meeting. With products like 360 cameras we are able to livestream your event and allow the virtual attendees to actually feel like they are part of the action. Add a Q&A platform to the stream and not only can your viewers see and hear the event, with a 360 degree view which allows them to adjust the camera angle, but they can also interact and ask questions. 
Get your team trained. As part of the Markey’s Headquarters expansion in Indianapolis, we are incorporating a client training center that will allow equipment, such as lecterns, downstage monitors and the multitude of microphones that presenters use, to be set-up and speakers will have the opportunity to get professionally trained on best practices and the proper way to use each piece of equipment. This gives presenters knowledge and practice from a real stage with real lights shining in their eyes so they are completely ready when it comes time for the event. Look for class sign-ups starting this summer!
Incorporate an LED Video Wall. Whether you have a meeting for 150 or 5000, LED walls are designed as panels that can fit together in limitless configurations, which means there is a solution that will fit your event!  Check out our LED Wall Image Gallery for inspiration.
Make your AV partner part of your planning team. Including your AV partner at the beginning of the event planning process has TONS of benefits.  Not only do you have someone to answer technical questions, like “Will the stage fit in that area?” or “Is the house sound adequate for 1500 people?”, but you have a partner that understand all of the event’s goals. This allows them to work within your budget to select the perfect event technology and deliver the most impact while reaching your goals.
