How can remote content improve collaboration and build a better show creation process? That's the question addressed in this article.
In this article we focus on three familiar concepts in the AV industry – remote content, content management solutions, media servers – and home in on their potential as a combined force.

Display technology has evolved from the early days where the only display you encountered was a TV, the monitor on your desktop computer or at the cinema, to something that is an integrated part of our daily lives.

I have never really written a lot about the types of tech art that are coming to the forefront of the art world these days; videos, digital, immersive and projection are all a part of it. I found myself very interested in an email I received about the festival and was fascinated with the colors, patterns and stories behind the creations. Let’s take a deeper look at it in this post.
The world has changed. A global pandemic, the rise of Black Lives Matter and social justice movements, and the intensifying climate crisis have altered how we live and work. This includes the theatrical industry. These changes, however, have been happening while theaters have been closed. It’s been an opportunity for us to reflect and look critically at our own industry.
