April Update: Chauvet Rogue R2 Series

April Update: Chauvet Rogue R2 Series

Greetings from The AV Company!

Great lighting is integral to the work we do and to the events that we produce. One group of lighting fixtures that we frequently use is the Chauvet Rogue R2 series! Featuring the R2 Wash and the R2 Spot, this series that debuted in early 2014 delivers upscale performance and advanced features that were previously unheard of at its price point!

The Rogue R2 Wash features nineteen 15-watt quad-color LED's, five zones of LED control, a unique lens design that allows for smooth color blending, and six distinct dimming modes. It also brags an industry-leading zoom range of 12°-49°, giving it the spread to cover very large areas.

The Parnelli Award-nominated Rogue R2 Spot also features high value and a range of colors and effects, along with its 240-watt LED lamp. It employs gobo-morphing technology and two variable scrolling color wheels to allow for an unlimited number of shape-changing and split-color effects. It also has a 3-facet rotating prism, motorized focus, iris control, and a frost filter.

Transformation Tuesday: Keswick Hall

Transformation Tuesday: Keswick Hall

Greetings from The AV Company!

Welcome to our eighth installment in our Transformation Tuesday series! This month, we'd like to take a look at a specific venue that we work with frequently and that has been the setting of several beautiful weddings we've recently helped to produce. Keswick Hall is an impressive 48-room mansion set within a 600 acre property here in Charlottesville. This gorgeous estate, originally built in 1912, is a fantastic venue for events ranging from weddings, corporate gatherings, retreats, et cetera.

Take a look at how we've recently transformed some of Keswick's event spaces using bistro lights, colorful interior uplighting, and fun custom gobos!

November Update: Ceremony Sound

November Update: Ceremony Sound

Greetings from The AV Company!

This month, we are taking a look at one of our favorite tools for providing excellent sound quality, without impeding on the aesthetic feel of an event! Often times, when you attend a wedding ceremony or conference, there are large speakers blocking your view of the bride, presenter, or stage. Well, we've found a solution!

Enter the Bose L1 which is available for rental from The AV Company. Believe it or not, the small speaker you see below is a unique, all-in-one system that delivers clear, powerful sound throughout small and medium-sized venues for up to 500 people. Because it's made by Bose, the sound is even no matter where you are in the room and eliminates the need for conventional monitors, mixers, and PA systems in most cases.

The unobtrusive Bose L1 projects sound forward and to the sides, providing 180-degree horizontal sound coverage and consistent tonal balance as sound spreads more evenly across the stage and into the audience. Due to its slender shape, it is also highly discreet, does not stand out in photos, and will not obstruct views the way many large speakers do!
