One of the of the most vital aspects to a teleconference, is presence. With a lot of confusion out there regarding how this works, it can be simply summed up as "Streaming with the ability to have a conversation".
22nd Avenue provides true two-way collaboration for meetings and conferences, through a variety of platforms. Where we are different from the rest, is that we provide the needed equipment to ensure your project launches successfully.
What is available on the market today:
With most solutions on the market today, you could download a third-party app and instruct your viewers to download the app as well and collaborate that way. Or, you could opt for a one-way streaming service and then field questions via twitter or other forms of social media.
These are great economical solutions, which can help a business or agency get out there and engage their public. However, these solutions can be difficult to deploy and troubleshoot without the correct equipment or personnel.
How we are different:
With Broadcast Solutions by 22nd Avenue, we provide the entire software and hardware solution on a project, temporary or long-term basis. There's no need to determine what equipment to buy, how to source audio, or what app's to download. We provide all cameras, switching, routing and even the internet (if needed).
We provide a simple web-based link for everyone to connect through, which can also be password protected.
Plus, if your project calls to be shared with the general public, we can even integrate with all social media platforms - Live and in Real-Time. If you have a presence on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or even Instagram - we can broadcast a stream to that account!

Since the K10.2 debuted, we have been fans of this powered speaker from day one. Originally thought of as a utilitarian speaker for premium sound indoors, we had started to utilize this speaker and a variety of other applications.
The biggest plus in outdoor live sound applications is the ability to delay your signal path right at the speaker level. Granted some engineers would prefer to have delay and timing control at the mix position, but for most Civic and medium-sized public events (between 10,000 to 15,000 people) the quick and dirty approach is perfect.
With that being said, if you are seriously considering the K10.2 as your next purchase (assuming you already have the capability to properly control the tone and dynamics of your sound, mix wise)... You are going to be extremely happy with the versatility of your purchase.
Don't take our word for it though, schedule a rental of a QSC sound system package today!
In 2020, Focus Groups are still going strong. When a company or a private individual is paying good money for research data, it’s important that researchers are able to analyze that data in real-time or have pristine records to refer to.
Many times, this responsibility falls on the audiovisual vendor.
As audiovisual experts with over 30+ years in the business, we’ve been working with Focus Group Researchers to provide custom solutions for their polling needs.
From a simple two-camera CCTV, recorded and delivered same-day; to remote streaming to multiple locations globally, with viewing rooms, two-way communication and playback for groups. Whatever your project calls for, we’re looking to build relationships and custom solutions for our clients.
The challenge for us was that the venue was a boutique hotel with poor Wi-Fi and internet options – as well as limited connectivity for power in critical locations.
After evaluating the site for the focus group studies, we determined that a cellular bonder would be the best option for data and streaming. This would allow for us to provide our own internet service on-site, without worrying about the local venue’s connection speed and reliability.
Lastly, to connect the cameras, we used a tuned wireless protocol over IP for our PTZ function as well as wireless SDI equipment to transmit signal to the viewing room. We provided boundary microphones and wireless lav (Lavaliere) microphones, which connected through the wireless camera stream, for perfectly clear audio.
This allowed us to remain out of sight of the focus groups and be in direct communication with the research associates in the viewing room. The collaboration between 22nd Avenue Entertainment Logistics and the research team ensured that the research group’s clients received a precise product that was reliable and specific to their needs.
Serving the entire Western United States and portions of the East Coast, 22nd Avenue Entertainment Logistics is the right choice for professional results when it comes to your most challenging projects. For researchers, focus groups or anything in between – give us a call, or contact us, for your next audiovisual rental or production need.

A lot of our clients come to us looking for a specific "thing" in search of a greater solution. In reality, it is a great way to get to meet us and connect.
For most of our major clients, the experience we bring to the table and the broader scope of their needs becomes apparent. With that, the name "Entertainment Logistics" begins to become clearer.
For example, we get a chance to meet a lot of new first-time concert promoters looking for a sound company. But after consultation, we come to find that a lot of these clients have not put together all of the additional pieces in their quest for concert production.
One of the biggest aspects to promoting a concert and ensuring that your event is a success, actually has nothing to do with the sound lighting and video (even though that is an important step).
As a promoters production partner, the team at 22nd Avenue Entertainment Logistics becomes more than a sound company or a lighting and stage company... We become the single entertainment production resource for professional results in the Western United States.
Interested in seeing what the 22nd Avenue Entertainment Logistics difference can do for your next major event or festival?
Let's start a dialogue today.
As a sound company, 22nd Avenue Entertainment Logistics has the inventory and experienced personnel to provide professional results at your next major event or concert.
For example, many local EDM festivals will not book talent traveling with specific equipment or needs. However, our experience with EDM festivals has shown it's more than just quality low-end and "thump". For a premium experience, attendees want to be able to "feel" the low-end substantially... But promoters and buyers do not necessarily have the budget to provide adequate power.
We have found that specific engineering on certain cabinets we have in inventory along with proper placement and height throughout the venue, will deliver dramatic results at a lower cost of power consumption.

Interested in learning more about what 22nd avenue entertainment logistics can do outside of sound and concert production?
That's great! Let's schedule some time to start a dialogue and see what we can do for you.
With half of 2019 pretty much behind us, it's always nice to check in with Productions and see what's new, trending and consistent. Some departments aren't rocking much change, as brands haven't really brought out new innovation... which makes 2020 look awesome!
The go-to system of choice still for concert work comes in at the EAW KF730 line array system. In our opinion, it's still a bit heavy for a 2-man crew on corporate work, but when there's little time to strategize a build-out... you can't go wrong. Polish off your low-end with the Danley TH118s or the EAW SB1001 accordingly.
We've also been getting great results with the QSC K12.2 in triple, as a stack, for wide array type applications (e.g. smaller concerts, corporate events - both indoors and out). They're easy to fly and a breeze to tune (using DBX Driverack PA Management racks). To fill in the bottom-end, we're still sticking with the JBL PRX818XLF x4 (2 per side). It's honestly amazing how good such a small rig sounds at performance levels.
Lighting is becoming more and more automated these days for smaller shows and while we're still pretty proud of our particle projection screens - the next big thing for lighting is really going to come down to placement and timing.
Getting light at the precise moment, in the precise location - has been made way easier with the Blacktrax system... but another cool thing to consider is by combining up to 4 20k Projectors to a visual server and "projecting light". Currently, our projector of choice - Panasonic PT-DS20K2UBH.
We're still using those upgraded Sony X-70's for broadcast/streaming work. It's a quick in and out system. We're not fumbling with lenses, mounts, packs and everything else attached to basic streaming. However, for live work - we've had great success with the Blackmagic Ursa (EF Mount) pairing with wireless SDI Ikans for transmission back to the Blackmagic ATEM 2 M/E. It's a capability that's nice to have and lends a much more "cinematic feel" to streaming productions.
As far as workflow is considered, we still consider proxy-based post more difficult with the Ursa's... as opposed to the Arri Alex Mini (no joke), or even the Canon C300. (Just a side note).
Stage and Rigging
Still fans of James Thomas, you just can't go wrong. A good pair of ST-25's and we're in business. With safety at the heart of any great production, It's honestly super reassuring that rigging continues to stay pretty consistent in build-outs.
For ground built stages; a speedy time of deployment is absolutely key. With the Quicklock stages from intellistage, we're getting up to 15 minute deployment times (in smaller applications).
Productions as a whole
The truth is, we love taking the awesome tools at our disposal to make great experiences for our clients. From conferences to concerts and everything in between... we're always looking to create something awesome, because sometimes the easiest solution isn't always the best solution.
