avs and the Best Part of Summer

The Fair at the PNE was a roaring success again this year.  Vancouver experienced the best weather in years during the Fair, which helped bolster the size of the crowds throughout the two week festival. The Fair is considered the best part of summer with exciting exhibits, rides, nightly headline entertainment and plenty of food and drink.

Once again AV Strategies played a pivotal role in the Fair by providing much of the AV, sound, lighting and, of course, our Stageline SL-100 along with the the PA system for Festival Park.

In addition to Festival Park, we provided audio and lighting for the Plaza Beer Garden and full stage lighting for Summer Night Concerts at the PNE Amphitheatre, which featured act such as ZZ Top, the Doobie Brothers, and the Pointer Sisters.  On the last weekend of the Fair, the Amphitheatre stage became the venue for iHeartRadio Beach Ball, featuring big names like Lorde, Train, Serena Ryder, the Philosopher Kings, and many more.

In the Pacific Coliseum we provided live cameras and video projection using our new Christie Laser Projectors along with the audio system featuring our new d&b Line Array.  This underscores our ability to provide audio for large venues such as the Coliseum with over 16,000 seats.  The Pacific Coliseum provides the venue for both SuperDogs and UNBELIEVEABLE: A Magical Experience. These shows are big crowd pleasers throughout the Fair.

Again this year, we supported the Fair’s Entertainment producer, Patrick Roberge Productions, by producing multimedia content to enhance some of the live shows.

We are proud to be selected as a vendor for the Fair and to be part of this Vancouver institution.

We have recently added the D&B Audiotecknick V-Series line array system to our national inventory. Our packages incorporate a mix of V8/V10 mid-highs V-GSUB subwoofers, Y10P point source loudspeakers for front fills, and D80 amplifiers – configured for Array Processing.

Comprised of both line array systems and point source solutions, the V-Series is the answer for any medium to large scale sound reinforcement application. The 3-way passive loudspeakers all share the same dipolar driver arrangement, while the subwoofers all exhibit D&B cardioid technology. In short, the V-Series is a verifiable recipe for success.

We recently deployed a system in Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum for the Fair at the PNE.
