Markey's Production Amps up AMLE2014

Markey’s  traveled to the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Conference Center in Nashville, TN for the AMLE2014 Annual Conference for Middle Level Education November 6-8.  This was Markey’s 5th year as the audiovisual partner of this event, which is held in a different city each year.

4,000 educators from all over the nation gathered to share best practices and celebrate their profession.  The three-day conference consisted of multiple events, for which Markey’s provided all the audiovisual equipment and professional services:

  • General Session
  • 45 concurrent breakout sessions
  • Trade show
  • Middle school student entertainment stage
  • Multiple receptions
  • On-site award recipient videos 

 Markey’s project manager consulted with the AMLE2014 planning staff on their needs and desired look for the General Session, and then designed, assembled and managed the General Session production from beginning to end. Equipment included a custom 15’ x 73’ stage screen with dual projection fabric, three 14k Christie Roadster projectors, Barco FSN switching, Encore processing and HXHC cameras to ensure that all 4,000 attendees could see the graphics, Image Magnification, and Twitter feeds shown during the session.  Martin MAC 700, Martin MAC  2k, and Martin 101 LED Robotic Lights were used in conjunction with Coemar Par 56 and Stagebars LED Cyclights to color the existing architecture and enhance the grandeur of the room.
