‘Over the Air’ conference, London, September 2015

By November 10, 2015January 26th, 2017Uncategorized

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.
