26 Oct Audio Visual Technology & The Award Ceremony – Looking At The Stars!
In modern society grandeur is resisted. We like to keep things down to earth. Especially here in Ireland. Here it is part of the national character to have one’s feet firmly on the ground. However, some occasions call for an amount of grandeur and dignity. They also call for the right audio visual technology. The award ceremony is one such occasion.
Award Ceremonies Are Necessary To Reinforce Excellence
Awards and status symbols are necessary in society in order to reinforce excellence and outstanding achievements. It is vital to the system to elevate and reward those who make an important contribution to society. The kind of people who make the world go around. But there is more to it than that.
Star Gazing At Award Ceremonies
Many award ceremonies are televised and watched by millions of viewers: the Oscars, the Grammys, the BAFTAs and the MTV Video Music Awards are just a few. Why do we enjoy them so much? It is because we live in a celebrity culture.
‘We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars’
Oscar Wilde said and it is true. We need stars because we need something to hope for and strive toward. We need to believe that if he/she can do it then I can do it.
Of course there are many different types of award ceremony for many different areas of achievement, not just the Arts, but they all serve the same purpose: to celebrate stars.
How To Get The Right Audio Visuals For Awards Shows
Getting the right audio visual equipment is important for the ritual celebration of stars. So what do you need? A stage and a lectern are probably the most important elements as they elevate the award winner. Sleek, minimalist lecterns are very popular these days. This style of lectern will both enhance and curb the grandeur of the occasion nicely. It enhances by being what it is, a lectern, and it curbs by being minimalist.
Of course, a sound system is also necessary. Often the award winner’s speech is the most entertaining aspect of the show. Especially their emotional reaction. A video wall or a flat screen can provide a nice background. A slide show of images that represent the occasion is a good idea. It can show the culture and ethos of the awarding body be it a business, a university or an association. Some creative thinking can go a long way to providing just the right back drop for the occasion.
