Data Summit was a high profile event for the Government of Ireland and hosted in Croke Park on the 19th September. The setup was based on a promotional event held in Croke Park in 2017. Split LED wall, LED Diamonds and relay screens. All LED content was created by Jacob & Jonathan. Pablo was the technical project manager (TPM) on this event and supervised and coordinated all activities between the various skillsets. The Data Summit presented many challenges and was delivered with great professionalism by all involved.
A small box, but with big potential – Interfaces professional video and audio equipment to computer via USB such that – the professional equipment can be seen as regular USB devices by apps (such as Skype, Facebook, WebEx, Zoom etc). No drivers required.
Planning was very involved, 35 days after the initial brief and 300+ emails, 100+ calls, 6 client meetings, 3 complete redesigns (5 graphics design days). Then – Jackpot – 1 signed quotation! Avcom produced a design that was within budget, suitable for TV broadcast and manageable in a very busy events day.
A big welcome to all our new recruits that joined the team over the past couple of months; Venetia, Przemek, Colin, Randy & Mitch and the best of luck to Paddy & Sean in their new roles.
On top of our move to Cherry Orchard and all that entailed, Avcom continued to invest in our rental stock and the last of our Q3 investment was available to hire from October. Investments included the introduction of a custom made Media Server, our largest ever display screen – the Christie 86” and of course additions to our general stock of audio, visual, scenery & lighting.
Internally it was great to witness so much creativity, positive can do attitude, overall teamwork and sense of pride you all showed throughout the Showcase week and indeed the weeks leading up to it. Externally we really showed what we do best and even surprised some attendees on our size and creative flair. In fact the National Lottery Good Causes Awards design is a direct result of showing the Showcase LED staging / video to the client team.
