Markey's Rental & Staging Delivers Strong Impact for Indiana Chamber Of Commerce Annual Awards Dinner

Over 1,500 people attended the Indiana Chamber of Commerce 24th Annual Awards Dinner November 12, 2013. This year’s event featured a tribute to our state’s strong ties to the military, and featured General Stan McChrystal as the keynote speaker. For an event of this stature, the planning staff selected Markey’s Rental & Staging to create a set design that would deliver major visual impact.
Markey’s utilized the Dataton WATCHOUT production and playback system to provide a 4-projector blend of visual elements onto a 100’ wide screen. The setup utilized eight Christie 1920 x 1080 14,000 Lumens projectors, double-stacked, for brightness and clarity of the projection. The WATCHOUT software enabled Markey’s to design a production that ranged from  depicting a single 100’ image, to a combination of video, moving sponsor loop, Image Magnification, and still graphics. This technology was used to great effect for the audience. The flanking screens measured 15’ x 27’ and Markey’s used two more of the double-stacked Christie projectors for each.     
Content creation is one of the most critical components of maximizing the WATCHOUT presentation software. For this show, the Indiana Chamber created much of the content (HD Video and graphics) under the creative direction of the Markey’s Rental & Staging production team, and there were a series of planning meetings leading up to the event. The Markey’s Rental & Staging production team then utilized the collaborative elements to build the show timeline. This software technology can also be used to great effect for smaller productions and screen sizes. Contact us to learn more.
