Official AV supplier to MPS 2018

As the official AV supplier to the Media Production Show 2018, Anna Valley will provide and run the audio visual equipment for all six stages at the show, including;

  • The Keynote Theatre
  • The Production Theatre
  • The Audio Theatre
  • The Digital Disruptors Theatre
  • The Blackmagic Design Live Production Theatre
  • The Post-Production Creative Hub

The Keynote Theatre will be equipped with two 98-inch screens with playback managed by Anna Valley’s Barco S3 Event Master Switcher.  Wireless clip-on and handheld microphones will feed captured audio to the Yamaha QL5 desk via twelve licensed radio mic frequencies.  The sound reinforcement system for this space includes two d&b T-series line arrays and subs, with the latest Shure Axient Digital wireless system and microphones.

The other stages will each feature a 75-inch  screen controlled by a Barco Seamless Presentation Switcher.  The sound reinforcement systems are all designed using d&b loudspeakers and Shure Digital wireless systems, giving optimal coverage and speech intelligibility in these areas.

The exhibition utilises a total of 42 channels of radio microphone frequencies, and given that the stages are all within close proximity of one another, the wireless system has been meticulously designed to avoid interference.

A team of ten event specialists will also provide AV equipment and support to a number of the show exhibitors and will be on site from Sunday the 10th until the show derigs on the night of Wednesday, 13 June.
