We have recently added Martin RUSH MH 1 Profile lighting fixtures to our national inventory.  These super bright LED moving head fixtures with efficient optics punch out a variety of effects and colors from two gobo wheels and two color wheels.

Their small size and versatility make them perfect for small and medium shows.

Grey is the new black….!  New to the avstrategies inventory is 32 Panels of Northern Grey Drape.

Measuring 16ft. tall x 8ft. wide, these panels are ideal for creating a lighter look within the room, as opposed to the standard drape in black.

Call us if you have any queries!

We have recently purchased 90” Sharp LED screens to add to our full inventory of Sharp Flat Screen Monitors.

These screens are perfect when projection is not feasible and you want a stunning screen that will capture people’s attention.  These screens are so big, bright, and clear that it is hard not to stare at them.  The actual screen dimensions are 81” x 47 ¾” and support full 1920×1080 resolution.
