We've recently came back from the Financial Services Tax Leaders Meetings in Amsterdam and we managed to pull off some spectacular projection for our clients. Once we had arrived at the venue, we were told the hanging lights in the main room could not be move despite being told they could on the recce.
Our video tech, Alex Whitby, came to an amazing solution using edge blending whilst also having to tilt the projectors so the angle was wide enough to work around the hanging light. Edge blending is a technique that is used to combine multiple projected images to make one seamless image. We used edge blending to make our superwide main-room screen a possibility.
A common problem we have for the larger conferences is communicating to the crew where they should be, and when they should be there. We've developed something that streamlines this process, making it much simpler for everyone involved. Chris and Dharmesh have been working hard on new features for our timetable website recently. We're now able to input location and crew data, then assign crew to their respective rooms. At the start of the week we sent a link out which gave our team access to this data, allowing them to filter it by room, or name, so they can check which sessions our team should be in.
We've been trialing it this week in preparation for it going live properly in October, using this week to scope out any bugs and get feedback on any potential changes and additional features we can work on and include. So far so good, we've had nothing but positive feedback from our crew, this had proven to be an extremely useful additional feature which we can't wait to improve on and better for future conferences.
