Drayton Manor

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Last week, Code Audio Visual provided AV tech support for a large conference at Drayton Manor theme park.

The conference, for over 300 of the company’s managers, had a 9” tall white conference set, incorporating one of our large 12’x7’ rear projection screens.

All content and projection was in Full HD providing a brilliant, crystal clear image. The presentations and videos were also shown on 50” LED screens further down the room so those at the very back were not left out. We also provided a live camera feed on another set of 50” LED screens so everyone was able to get a clear view.

This meant a lot of routing and cabling to provide a stable and full HD image on every screen. We put in a multi-speaker PA system, controlled by our Allen and Heath digital mixing desk, providing clear and precise audio to every attendee.

Emergency Services Carol Concert

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Every year at Chester Cathedral, Cheshire Emergency Services meet together and have their annual carol service.

Code Audio Visual was the supplier of choice, continuing on from years of successful events, to provide full technical support. Code AV provided full HD projection with one of their 12’ x 7’ 16:9 screens. There was a mix of presentations and live camera feeds which were seamlessly mixed through their Roland HD vision mixer.

Code AV supplied a multi-speaker sound system covering the whole congregation so they could hear every word clearly. The cathedral was also flooded with colour giving the wow factor by powerful LED uplighters. (No flashing blue lights though…!)

Roadshow

By | Event Production | No Comments

Roadshows are one of the things Code AV do best. We can take the same job on the road to give you and your clients a professional and familiar feel.

One of our regular clients approached us to technically support their roadshow again this year.

Traveling to different venues with varying ceiling heights, we had to adapt and tweak the conference set, but still give a consistent and always professional finish.

As usual, we supplied Full HD projection and superb audio meeting the needs of the guest speakers.

This year’s roadshow took us to the Bank of England Sports Club, Doncaster Racecourse and Newcastle Racecourse.

If you would like to speak to us about what we can do for your roadshow, conference or any other event, please call or email us directly on 0800 644 6165 or info@codeav.com.

This Is Your Life

By | Event Production | No Comments

Last month we supplied the full audio visual support to a ‘This Is Your Life’ style event at Crewe Hall, celebrating the time and commitment from one of their employees before she moved on to a new adventure.

Code Audio Visual supplied a curved conference set with a 10ft projector screen and full HD projector to display their presentation and videos in high definition as standard. There was many audio and visual cues including surprise guests, so the audio, visuals and lighting had to be spot on. Not a problem for Code AV!

As well as providing stage lighting and uplighters for the main event (in orange – the company colour!), Code AV also supplied all the event lighting for the evening entertainment giving a great party atmosphere.

Fully Booked October 2015

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

If you are a ‘frequent flyer’ on our blogs, you will know that Code AV has a lot of repeat custom. We have built up a loyal customer base because quite simply we are the best at what we do. We promise to give you a bespoke event solution that suits your unique requirements, using whatever best suits from our huge range of state of the art equipment, and we only use full HD projectors where others often don’t. You will soon realise that you CAN tell the difference!

FULLY BOOKED OCTOBEROne such loyal customer is ‘Fully Booked’: we have done several events for them now in the last few years… in fact you could say we are often fully booked with Fully Booked! Let’s have a reminder of what they are all about…..  It’s a marketing event for Personal Trainers and the fitness industry and it is as ‘un-conferency’ as it’s possible to be! No expense accounts at the cocktail bar for these gym bunnies, although they probably get through a few smoothies. Terrifyingly for those of us who have not been near a gym for a few summers, they have a ‘morning rave’ to wake everyone up… not the 90s type but certainly as lively if in a slightly different way!

As with all our events, there is Full HD projection and everything is supplied by us including stage, set, drapes, truss, moving lights, PA system, radio microphones etc. Code AV also film this event every year in Full HD as you can see above.

County Insurance conference, Cranage Hall, October 2015

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

County Insurance is a very well-regarded Cheshire-based insurance firm who had a need for a bespoke audio-visual solution for a conference at Cranage Hall, a popular local hotel and conference venue. Code AV was the natural choice as this is what we do and we are the best at it. Every company’s needs are different and we recognise this, providing the best solutions from our huge range of state of the art equipment.

Code AV only uses full HD projection systems, unlike many companies who use inferior technology. It really does make a difference! County Insurance’s conference had this along with LED uplighters in their very smart company colours of gold and blue along with printed signs on set. This was an important conference for them and all of their staff were present, so they appreciated the professionalism that Code AV bring to every job.

‘Over the Air’ conference, London, September 2015

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This September, Code AV were delighted to be involved in ‘Over The Air’,  an annual Apps developers conference that showcases the very latest of hip and happening technology. As you might expect, it is a very creative and competitive arena and they have a ‘Hack Day’ where participants share ideas and learn new things by coming up with ideas which are under no pressure to be commercially viable or even feasible in the real world! in addition to this, there are some specific Hack challenges some of which are related to the themes of the conference and others that are put forward by the sponsors and offer the opportunity to win a prize.

This is the seventh Over the Air event , but the first to be held in London’s very own Silicon Valley in Hoxton, London. The event was previously held at Bletchley Park, home of the national computing centre, and of course also famous for the wartime ‘Enigma’ code breakers, but it seems fitting that it is now being held in one of the foremost new technology centres in the world.NOVEMBER 11TH BLOG

It will come as no surprise that Over the Air will not use just any old AV solution. They expect and need the best, and to this end Code AV supplied a full and bespoke event solution using of course Full HD projection. This included a main room with 3 lecterns, 12’ x 7’ full HD widescreen projector systems, a PA system for 400, radio microphones, and 14 separate video inputs to the main screen all switched seamlessly. We also provided 2 x Marquees with large projectors and screens in both, plus PA systems and radio microphones. We also provided 7 breakout rooms, with a 50” plasma screen in each, with VGA, HDMI, Mini HDMI, Micro HDMI, and Mini Display port inputs available in each room (natch!).

This sort of event is technically very challenging, but with our know how and 4 of the best technicians in the business it all went smoothly. It is an event we are very proud of having supported and there is a beautiful synergy in the very best in technologies coming together to make such a prestigious and important event happen.

Fully Booked May 2015

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As you will have read in our last blog, we did a School Meals Roadshow in May and June this year. At the same time as the May Roadshows we also did a 3 day event in central Coventry called “Fully Booked “. As you can imagine doing two events at the same time is a challenge, to put it mildly, but this is what we thrive on. We provided a full event solution for Fully Booked last year and they made sure they booked us in for this year right after last year’s event finished! We are also delighted to share the news that they have already booked us for four events next year as well! Why do Code AV customers ask us to do their events and conferences year on year? Because we are the best in the business. We offer a bespoke solution for any event or conference and we always use full HD projection for every job.

So, we know that Fully Booked are a happy and loyal customer, so what are they all about? Well, it’s not your average conference, put it that way! It’s a marketing event for Personal Trainers and the fitness industry and it is as ‘hands-on’ and lively as you might expect! Your average delegate will have a full English breakfast and then head to a conference room for coffee and biscuits, not so at Fully Booked! Here we have a ‘morning rave’ to wake everyone up (including our MD Gary!) so for ten minutes it’s like an early morning disco but probably a little healthier.

As with all our events, there is Full HD projection , everything you can see below is supplied by us including stage, set, drapes, truss, moving lights, PA system, radio microphones etc. We also film this event every year in Full HD.

May/June 2015: DFEE School Meals Roadshow

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

School meals are very much the flavour of the month, with the likes of Jamie Oliver getting involved and lots of government initiatives to improve standards around the country. Code AV’s maître d ‘Gary was therefore honoured to be approached to provide a full event solution for the DFEE School Meals roadshows in May and June this year. These roadshows consisted of two back to back roadshows a week in some very tasty locations (some more wholesome than others depending on your football allegiance!): Manchester United, The Spa Scarborough, Gloucester Hotel, Aston Villa Birmingham, Tottenham Hotspur and Peterborough Arena.

From our à la carte AV menu, they chose a conference set in white (custom of course) which had different size screens depending upon the venue: some used 8’x6’ screens, others had 10’x7’6” if room sizes permitted. The only “fixé” part of the Code AV menu is Full HD projectors, which we use for every job. You can see a taster picture below:

June/July 2015: another happy customer.. back again for the ROMEC conferences!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

As you saw in our last blog, Code AV has some very prestigious and loyal  customers. Code AV were delighted to have worked with ROMEC last year for their “ROMEC Roadshow” management conferences and even more delighted that they asked us back this year to provide a full conferencing solution for their 2015 Roadshows, including a custom conference set and of course Full HD projectors which we use on every job.

ROMEC Roadshows June and July 2015

The ROMEC Roadshows are a series of conferences for management across the country in locations such as Newcastle, Aston Villa in Birmingham, the AJ Bell Stadium in Manchester, and the Mermaid Conference Centre in London. Each of these highly regarded events has a very packed one day schedule, which means for the Code AV people a very early set up and test, then a full day’s Roadshow followed by an efficient pack up and then a drive to the next venue to do it all again! The ROMEC Roadshow schedule means that we do this two or three times a week for a couple of weeks, and we thrive on it! AV is what we do and we are the best at what we do!

As outlined above, Code AV provided a full conferencing solution including Full HD Projection, 50” Courtesy plasma, Custom conference set in white… basically everything in the picture plus sound!
