PT 2-The TechnologyIn part two of Hybrid Event Success, we are going to look at the technology you need to add elevated production value to your Hybrid Event. Giving your people the right tools to produce a professional hybrid event broadcast allows you to control the quality and look of the event for a remote attendee. The right technology also allows you and your team to be flexible and agile when things need to change.
What do you need to create a successful Hybrid Event? Building an experience that’s is engaging for your live attendees and your remote audience can seem like an insurmountable task when you first start out. You want to make sure you give both of your audiences the attention they need and keep them connected, entertained and immersed in an experience.
How is this achieved? Using the right people, the right technology and the right process, you can create a dynamic experience for both your audiences.
As you plan your next event, whether fully live, virtual or hybrid, focusing on production value is key to developing your audience and getting your message across.
How will the content be shot? How many cameras do you need? These are important questions that need to be thought through well in advance of your event.
Audio is one of the most critical parts of your event that often gets overlooked. It is one of those elements of an event that you would never notice when it goes well. The moment you get ugly feedback, or it is hard to hear what is happening on your stage, you know, you will hear about it. In this week’s design inspiration, we look at the essential parts of your audio design. What are the important questions to ask about audio for your event? What are the important parts of your audio system, and what design considerations do you need to factor in to ensure you use the technology to its fullest potential.
In the early days of the pandemic, event professionals were reeling. However, like the forward thinkers and innovators, many started to look immediately to the future, what the pandemic would mean for the industry, and how we could recover and grow.
Organizations and service professionals quickly shifted to virtual and digital solutions. This saved a lot of clients, kept the industry going and preserved a lot of hard-working jobs. Almost immediately in this phase of the “Pivot” event, experts started to think about what would come next. The word Hybrid started to be talked about and soon was embraced as the future.
Truss has very practical uses, from supporting rigging and lighting to critical support infrastructure and specific engineering needs.
On top of that, trusses can be used to enhance your stage design and create stunning visuals for your next event. Truss is modular and can be used to create sets, frame screens and add dynamic lighting to your environmental design. In addition, a truss can be left uncovered to give a more industrial or mechanical feel or covered in fabric to allow you to create clean lines throughout your event design.
Here are a few ways we love to use trusses in the design of events, meetings and conferences, along with some practice tips to keep in mind.
