07.11.2019 - Exponent Women at SECOND.

On July 11th Moore PA Hire loaded in to SECOND to provide audio and video equipment and services for the Exponent Women Conference. Let's jump in to our set up.
We engineered two AV packages that could be either operated independently or linked together. The reason for this was that in the morning the full event space would be used for the keynote address of the conference, but then at lunch an air-wall would be rolled out to split the event space in two for simultaneous panels in the afternoon.

For audio, we started with (1) Yamaha QL-1 and (1) Yamaha QL-5, each with their own Yamaha Rio 1608D. For microphones we provided 11 channels of wireless via (7) decks of Shure UR4D, paired with combination of Shure UR-1 & Countryman E6-Ds, DPA 4088, DPA D-Fine, and UR2 handheld mics. We also provided (1) Shure MX-418 podium microphone and a couple PCDIs for some house music. For speakers we provided (8) L'Acoustics 112p and (4) L'acoustics 108p for a combination of front of house, delay speakers, front fill and monitors. We laid all this out and then cabled them up with all the XLR and edison necessary and then jumped onto the video side.

For video, we started with (1) Production Bot Switch 8 and (1) Roland VR50 HD. We loaded up a stack of PowerPoints, images, and slideshows (all provided by the client) and we were ready for any eventuality. For screens we used (2) Sharp Aquos 80" displays. We placed one at each end of the room so each section would have a display when the airwall flew in. Once these were cabled up with SDI our final task for video was interfacing to the house's projector and projection screen. We ran our feed though a Decimator MD-HX just for safety and then plugged into the HDMI port on the east wall of the venue.

Finally for staging, we built two stages, again for when the room would be split. We laid our 8' x 4' & 6' x 4' sections to build two stages both skirted with duvatene. Our Cherry Wood Pedestal podium rounded out the staging portion of our package.
