In May, AV Strategies provided the audiovisual support for the G7 Finance Ministers Symposium in Whistler, BC.
The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, and the Honourable Bill Morneau, Minister of Finance, along with Stephen Poloz, Governor of the Bank of Canada, co-hosted the meeting of G7 Finance and Development Ministers and Central Bank Governors.
Cantrav, one of Canada’s premier destination management and event production companies, hired us to deliver the audiovisual solution. That solution included audio, lighting, large LED flat panel displays, multi-camera video production, and a live stream of one of the sessions using IBM Cloud Video. Through our partnership with IBM, we stream video through our webcasting portal which provides a highly scalable and reliable platform for streaming both live and on-demand video.
The secured closed-circuit stream was viewed by media and government staff in other venues throughout Whistler, so they could remotely participate in the meeting.
This was another high-profile event that required AVS to deliver a multi-disciplined approach with complex technical and logistical requirements while having a minimal impact on the meeting.
