This is a story about why you want professionals staffing your live events.
The MC gave such a rousing introduction to the CEO, the crowd leapt to their feet. In the ensuing bro-hug, the CEOs lavaliere mic got tangled in the MC’s suit button, yanking the mic of his tie and pulling his tie wildly askew in the process.
The boss got up on stage, making a joke about losing his mic as he clipped it back in place. He didn’t know how crazy his tie looked.
A crew member - one of the men in black - volunteered to go up on stage and straighten it out, but the client didn’t like that idea.
Instead, technical director Matt Clover came up with a genius idea and punched up a camera on one of the two 42” downstage monitors. The CEO noticed he was in disarray, made another joke about it, straightened his tie and began his 60-minute presentation.
There were hundreds of guests in the ballroom, and hundreds more across the country viewing the live feed. Was this the end of the world? Of course not.
But as we always say, our job is to make you look your best. No matter how we make that happen.
ImageStream live events are all about effectively supporting the program. But sometimes, the tech gets our attention. This center screen is 20 feet wide and is lit with a 13-thousand lumen LASER projector. It looks more like a giant banner than projection. Amazing!
