Events United delivers realtime, two‐site kickoﬀ for connection with CHAUVET Professional
Garrett McConchie experienced a brief moment of disorientation recently, and was both confounded and excited by what he saw. The project manager of CNXN Live, a real‐time in person and livestreamed corporate event that took place simultaneously at two sites, McConchie was watching a panel discussion occurring at the Armory in Manchester, New Hampshire, when, for a fleeting second, he thought he was looking at the monitor for the stage in the Palm Beach Convention Center, 1,465 miles to the south. It was at that point that he fully appreciated how well the team at Events United had achieved the seamless connectivity they were after for this ambitious four‐day conference, which involved extensive use of broadcast and communications technology, as well as 111 F2 video tiles and 185 LED lighting fixtures from CHAUVET Professional. “We made a very conscious eﬀort to use the same set pieces in each location to help bring a cohesiveness between the two stages,” continued McConchie. “The fixtures on the ladders, along with the eight COLORado PXL Bar 16 fixtures on the floor gave us amazing visuals for walk‐ons and speaker transitions,” continued McConchie, who notes that at the New Hampshire site, the rig consisted of five onAir IP Panel 2, 12 Maverick MK1 Hybrids, 12 Maverick MK2 Spots, 10 Maverick MK2 Washes, six Ovation F‐ 265WW Fresnels and 12 Ovation CYC 1FC fixtures.
