Do you want to succeed with your event? You can bet on interconnected AV technologies!
AV technology is a technological cocktail of the video imagining and the sound with more than 100 years of history, that is still moving more and more forward. If you follow the newest trends on this rapidly evolving industry, you will shortly find out that it is not just indispensable but also an interesting component of every successful event. So, what is hiding behind the mysterious term “AV technology?” It´s an equipment that plays on two senses at once and bring experience to the eyes of its compilation of light, sound and projection. What specific type will be used, depends on the type of event itself. Experts presenting on various fields will need crystal clear sound or a 3D hologram visualization of the person who could not come physically. For entertainment performances its more about video visualization and perfect sound of the live shows.
A consolidated solution is key
Before the AV technology play its part at the event, a thorough analysis of the client needs, needs to be done which includes technical parameters - air conditioning solutions, storage, whether the load capacity is sufficient to hold specific type of equipment, the noise of the technique used, etc. But this is only one part. After that, it’s necessary to get the content on numerous screens and connect all the electronic devices. In practice, sometimes the client has some data pre-prepared such as – presentations, quizzes, and voting, which they use in various applications. The AV team provides a popular and reliable service - the so-called Central Check-in of Speakers. It ensures that changes are displayed at real time, from the speaker’s phone app, through to the audience app and finally through to the content displayed on the screens.
Participants can have coffee and at the same time have up-to-date information on how long the pause is, what next presentation follows, or to see a change of speaker. This awareness as expected, contributes to the overall satisfaction of the participants by continually providing them information on what is happening thereby reducing any necessary confusion. Everything is transparently provided to the audience via applications and on screens.
Technically demanding events are not an exception in PCC
Over the years, the experienced PCC team has been though a lot and sometimes preparing for an event is particularly challenging. Among other things, the Congress Centre is a popular venue for International Medical Congresses, which often take place in 15 lounges at the same time, and Milan Svoboda, head of AV technicians adds: “During one of the medical congresses we had live streams from 3 operation rooms where operating doctors were connected with people in the lounges who asked questions and doctors answered them during the operation. Every event has its own specifics and every detail has to be taken into account in the preparation. “
These kinds of events is undoubtable proof of the professional and flexible approach of the PCC team.
Popular is audience interactivity
For example, by using mobile applications such as Slid.do, Superevent.com or Easypolls.net, all participants can interactively participate in the conference without having pencils and papers, which at the same time speeds up our efforts towards maximizing sustainability. Through the app you can do a lot of things such as fill in quizzes, vote or send questions to the speaker which is projected directly onto the screens. It is all real-time and transparent, which is a great advantage. Applications are also used for feedback, where the attendees answer a set of evaluation questions.
Movie Premiere? Not a problem
An exciting experience was the Premiere of the film the “Painted Bird” which was screened for 2000 spectators. Despite of huge pressure the team succeeded without the blink of an eye. A brand-new canvas, 21.5 x 9 meters was purchased, and the highest quality sound equipment was installed. Before the premiere, everything on site at the Prague Congress Centre was controlled by a representative of the Dolby Digital film distributor from London, who closely checked that was meeting their high standards, and it did.
The Prague Congress Centre is traditionally very busy with more than 250 events per year. Our professional team will advise you on how to handle AV technology in our premises in the most efficient way. Moreover, in today's technologically progressive times, the latest trends and news must be closely monitored. The team of AV technicians at the Prague Congress Centre leaves nothing to chance and regularly takes inspiration from abroad and from incoming performers, who often have their own special technique.
Cherry on the top
An inconspicuous but important part of a successful event is the right choice of music. AV team helps clients to choose music for specific events. Experience proves, that music during breaks has a major impact on the mood of the participants and therefore the rhythm of the whole event. The architects of the Congress and Forum Hall had the same thoughts, but in a visual way. Their deliberate differences are refreshing for the demanding congresses.
The Prague Congress Centre holds its place among the world's top congress centres, and overall modernization and digitization is one of the key areas that we focus on. For more information contact our sales team.
