AVS has added the new Chauvet Rogue R2X beam fixtures to our rental stock.
Rogue R2X Beam is the light cannon of the Rogue series, boasting an intense 134,000 lux at 15 meters from its 231 W Osram Sirius lamp. This fully-featured beam can be focused down to 1 degree for extremely focused aerial effects, and comes with 14 fixed colors in a fully scrollable, variable speed color wheel, which also provides split-colors perfectly. Additionally, the unit features individually controllable and overlapping 8 and 5-facet prisms for an endless supply of creative and dynamic beam looks. Frost and focus options ensure even light distribution and the unit is equipped with RDM and DMX protocols.
AVS was proud to be part of the inaugural Squamish Constellation Festival July 26 – 28. We provided a turn-key production solution for the Creative BC stage including a d&b V-series PA and concert lighting rig, all deployed on our SL260 dual covered wing mobile stage. We also supplied our SL-100Mix to serve as the main stage FOH production control area and follow spot position.
Held on the traditional, unceeded territory of the Squamish Nation, The Squamish Constellation Festival is a mind-blowing, heart-opening experience of music, art and community. Nestled at the top of Howe Sound against the stunning backdrop of The Squamish Chief and swathes of evergreens, you’ll find Hendrickson Field, the idyllic location for Squamish’s preeminent cultural celebration. Featuring two stages of continuous music and more than 40 acts of multiple genres over three days and nights, the weekend promises fun in the sun – and, of course – under the stars.
We have recently added the new xVision Touring G2 4.8mm outdoor rated LED tiles to our rental stock. The cabinet dimensions (w x h: 500 x 1000 mm, 19.68 x 39.37 in) result in quick installs/dismantles and allow for true 16 x 9 aspect ratio display configurations. Walls can be flown or ground supported and the unique rotary-locking system allows for “curvability”” at 0, +/- 5, 10 and 15 degrees.
We have recently added 85 inch and 98 inch models of the new QMN series 4K UHD resolution Samsung LED screens to our national inventory of Flat Panel Monitors. The size of these screens is truly mesmerizing, and they are a great solution when a screen and projector is not an option (smaller meeting rooms, high ambient light situations, etc).
The picture technology transforms content from any source to UHD-level quality and optimizes on-screen text and imagery with crisp edges and fine detail. Their ability to be daisy chained enables them to support multiscreen configurations and the on-board digital signage engine allows for content display without needing a laptop source.
