Last week, AV Strategies provided the complete audiovisual solution for the LINUX Foundation’s Open Source Summit North America which took place at the Vancouver Convention Centre WEST.

Open Source Summit is the leading conference for developers, architects, and other technologists – as well as the open source community and industry leaders – to collaborate, share information, learn about the latest technologies and gain a competitive advantage by using innovative open solutions.

AV Strategies has been supporting The Linux Foundation since 2011. We handle multiple events each year across North America. At OSS NA we provided a full suite of technologies and the complete audiovisual package for the keynote room which featured our d&b V-series line array for audio, our Christie HD laser video projectors for content display and our Christie X20 Spyder switcher for seamless matrix routing. We also incorporated our EPIX modules as a key set element on stage. These LED light boxes display a variety of visual content from our one of our lighting media servers and create dynamic colour and movement for the stage.

The show featured a large tradeshow component which we supported with multiple HD monitor displays, including technical support for custom mounting monitors in a variety of portrait and landscape applications at sponsor booths.

In addition to the plenary sessions and tradeshow, AVS provided audiovisual support for 24 breakouts with concurrent presentations. Our team was instrumental in the seamless execution of this major learning conference.

The Linux Foundation is dedicated to building sustainable ecosystems around open source projects to accelerate technology development and industry adoption.

Founded in 2000, The Linux Foundation provides unparalleled support for open source communities through financial and intellectual resources, infrastructure, services, events, and training. Working together, The Linux Foundation and its projects form the most ambitious and successful investment in the creation of shared technology.

Once again, AV Strategies is proud to have been chosen as a key vendor to the Fair at the PNE. 

Our SL-100 Mobile Stage is featured as the centerpiece of Festival Park, along with a distributed audio system for the venue. Stop by at Festival Park to watch a live performance, sing along with a band, and be amazed by the nighttime finale show! Our SL-100 Mobile Stage will be home to nightly acts such as Dr. Strangelove, Side One, R&B Allstars, and Groove & Tonic.

We are providing lighting and audio for the beer garden, audio for Celebration Plaza and Miller Drive, and we are doing the lighting for the Summer Night Concert Series at the PNE Amphitheater.

The Concert Stage will feature artists such as Chicago, Boyz II Men, Goo Goo Dolls, Cyndi Lauper, and many more. This is a large venue and we are implementing a large spectrum of our intelligent and conventional LED lighting inventory.

The Plaza Beer Garden is a fan favourite at the Fair and will once again feature the Dueling Pianos. This interactive act is highly entertaining and includes great audience engagement. The Dueling Pianos perform nightly.
