Themed “The Olympic Games, Stylized”, this recent event took place at Muzik Nightclub on Exhibition Grounds in Toronto and took the form of a fashion show organized by APG’s client Hudson’s Bay Company to launch the Olympic athletes’ apparel – including the official Team Canada uniforms.
The show was greatly enhanced by an array of visually stunning audio visual effects including a highly visible backdrop provided by Advanced Inc. created using 36 seamless Infinite plasma panels wired with over 900ft of cabling. The panel display took around a day to set up. Placed at the top end of the stage, the display had a live HD camera feed of the catwalk models as well as pumping out custom-designed HD video material created over a two year period. Input was provided in HD-SDI format from ‘front of house’ and converted to DVI prior to being fed into the wall.
The over-size screen created a highly stylized atmosphere built like a sports stadium with the screen as the ‘scoreboard’. The stage resembled a figure-8 running track with the audience were seated on industrial, unfinished stadium bleachers and the floor covered in astro-turf.
The event passed off flawlessly which can be attributed to a dedicated sales team, impeccable project management and a skilled technical support and installation team willing to go over and above to make every request of the client a successful and stress-free reality.
