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

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.

As part of our ongoing effort to utilize products that are efficient, innovative, and environmentally responsible, AV Strategies has invested in new Elation LED Blinders to add to our national lighting inventory. Β 

While blinders have been around for a long time, the new CUPIX Blinder WW4 from Elation is a marked improvement over older technology incandescent fixtures. Β 

Our new 4 light blinders feature a weatherproof housing, individual control over each of the 4 lights, and a decay feature. Lighting techs no longer have to pre-program a fade into our LED blinders, as the desirable decay effect is built-in to each of the fixtures.

They also feature long life 100W Warm White 3,200K COB LEDs, a 62Β° beam angle, individual control of each COB module, manual pan focus, variable and selectable dimming curves, strobe effects, flicker free operation for TV and Film, 3pin and 5pin DMX and powerCon in/out connections. Β They also have LCD menu display with 4 button control panel, integrated yoke and side mounting brackets, and a multi-voltage universal auto switching power supply.

doobie brothersWe spec’d these lights for the first time at the PNE last summer for the mainstage which featured bands such as Tom Cochrane, The Pointer Sisters, ZZ Top, Huey Lewis and the News, and the Doobie Brothers.

Our strategy of continuously upgrading our inventory with the latest technology in all our departments provides significant benefits to our end customers, a better experience for production companies utilizing our products & services, and it means we are using products that use less energy and reduce our environmental footprint.
