The International Association of Movers, a global association of 2,000 company members, hosted its Annual Meeting at the Marriott Orlando World Center that gathered 1,200 people.
American Audio Video, the Rental & Staging company chosen for the project, designed a demanding setup for this event. They created a stunning stage composed of a large 16’x95’ curved screen, fed by four projectors, plus two delay screens of 9’x16’ fed by one projector each.

To manage the video processing, American Audio Video tapped Analog Way’s Ascender 32 (Ref. ASC3204), a powerful multi-screen Seamless Switcher. As more output capabilities were required to feed the delay screens and the confidence monitors, the LiveCore™ Output Expander (Ref. LOE032) was added enabling four additional outputs on the system. “Adding the LiveCore™Output Expander to the LiveCore™ system was the perfect cost-effective solution. We did not have to add a second switcher just because we needed a couple more outputs”, explains Rick Mathews, Regional Manager at American AV.

Mathews details how he used the Ascender 32 paired with the LiveCore™ Output Expander: “We used all 8 outputs. Four outputs were used to do the blend on the main screen, one for the delay screens, one for the overflow room and two outputs for the confidence monitors. In total we had 18 sources, 8 sources for the background layer, 2 PlaybackPros, 2 cameras, 2 PC graphics and 2 Mac graphics. There were two display configurations, one background layer and two PIPs and one background layer with one PIP. We also did full screen videos.”

He also explains why they choose to use the Ascender 32: “We selected the Ascender 32 because it is the most flexible and easily configurable device on the market. The show wasn’t very long so we needed something that enabled us to do anything we wanted quickly. Also the device was simple enough to have only one person run it from the control room.”
