Full AV Production & Streaming Services
Pro AV Rentals is called upon to provide FULL AV Production support for this Verizon sponsored Google+ Hangout event.
Pentatonix is an a cappella group of five vocalists, Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola, originating from Arlington,Texas. The group won the third season of The Sing-Off on NBC, singing an a cappella arrangement of "Eye of the Tiger", originally performed by the band Survivor, as their victory song. Pentatonix won $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony. Their debut EP, PTX Vol. 1, charted at #14 on the Billboard 200 Charts. Pentatonix is touring and currently working on their next album.
Verizon wanted to celebrate the opening of their new 42nd Street Times Square retail store, and invited Pentatonix to perform LIVE for it's Grand Opening. They wanted people to experience Pentatonix LIVE and in-person, but for those who couldn't make it, they decided to launch a Google+ Hangout for this particular event, so additional video and broadcasting services were required.
The Pro AV Rentals team quickly responded by creating a specific package which catered to Verizon's request consisting of...
- (2) Full Stacks (QSC KW Series Tops & Subs)
- (5) Wedge Monitors
- 6 Channel Shure Wireless Mic System
- Allen& Heath 16 Channel MixWizard3 Mixing Board
- Assorted LED Slimpars DMX Lights
- DMX Control Board
- Multiple 50" Plasma HDTV for the Verizon Store
VIDEO PRODUCTION / STREAMING:
(2) Sony HD Cameras
(1) TriCaster 300 HD Streaming System
- A1 Audio Engineers
- V1 Video Engineers
- Production Assistants
- TriCaster Operators
- Camera Operators
Ultimately, a last minute decision was made to move the LIVE Pentatonix performance to the rooftop of the MOPHONICS Recording Studio. However, 50" HD playback monitors (TV's) would be installed in the Verizon store to broadcast the NYC rooftop performance. Our team was able to adjust and accommodate the clients' last minute request with no issues.
