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.

In order to keep our inventory up-to-date with the latest technology – we have added new projectors to our national inventory. Introducing the Christie DHD850-GS Projector with the Christie One Rigging Frame.
Laser phosphor is a lampless projection illumination platform, so no more lamp filter replacements! Instead, it uses blue laser diodes as the primary light source and generates the other colours by exciting a phosphor-coated wheel. The projector then sends the separated red, green and blue colors onto an imaging surface, such as a DLP® chip, which then sends the light through a lens and onto the projection screen. The value for your event is that this technology combines high-brightness capabilities with a long operational life, low maintenance and reduced downtime for a low total cost of ownership.
This technology meets our high standards not only with bright and accurate images, but in changing environments, too. With Christie BoldColor Technology, those laser phosphor projected images are authentically reproduced by meeting the Rec. 709 standard. What this means is practical benefits for you, even in uncontrolled environments, such as rooms where ambient light may fluctuate. An investment in Christie technology means your vision will not falter or come up short.
The Christie One Rigging Frame is a single assembly that fastens to the bottom of the projector. It can be hung in normal or inverted orientations, and can support up to three stacked projectors. If need be, it’s versatility also allows it to mount the projectors to truss in a portrait orientation.
Here at AV Strategies, we believe in offering you the best options for your events. On top of all of the incredible features, Christie technology is greener and more efficient than many comparable projection systems. No bulbs mean less waste and less chance of a projector going down during a show. If you have any questions about these projectors or any other AV solution, contact us to discuss your next event!
