Well, we've been busy!

We just realized that news hasn't gotten onto our website in quite a while. Which is good, because it means that we are so busy we forget to put news here, but is not-so-good, because unless you see our Facebook page   https://www.facebook.com/ProductiveMedia?ref=hl   you may not see what we're up to!  Here's an early morning view of Satellite Village on the Boston Common frog pond at the 2014 Boston Marathon.

2012 Harvard Signet Society Dinner

android-20120421204540-1.jpg

The Harvard Signet Society has been promoting the intellectual, literally and artistic life at Harvard for quite a while (since 1870). We've been supporting their dinner for a somewhat shorter period (not yet a decade) but every year we enjoy the poetry, music, and speakers that make up a Signet dinner.

We are less tempted by the two champagne bowls from which 170 very smart people drink.

This year we provided a small pa system, wireless microphones, a piano and a camera to record the event for posterity, and the staff to run it all. (The staff didn't play the piano, though, that would have been very bad.)

Happy Easter Everyone!

Every so often we get to help with an event that, while always professionally done, is also just fun. This March we got a call from the Highrock Covenant Church in Arlington MA to help with their Easter Services on April 8, which are held in the historic Arlington Town Hall.  It's a cool location, with a balcony, hardwood floors, and gilded plaster work, and it has enough power spread around the building to allow us to bring in a 10K HD projector, a 3000 watt PA system, a Source Four lighting package, and a light viper optical audio snake.  Pastor Eugene Kim was very helpful in assigning "volunteers" to help us run gear up into the balcony, and the result looked and sounded great!

Also, the staff at Arlington Town Hall were very helpful in explaining what was what and where, and they were easily accessible and pleasant during the set up and tear down of all of the gear.

Shhh! Secure World is Here!

For the past four years, the Seguro Group has asked us to provide all of the audio visual support for their Secure World Boston event at the Hynes Auditorium.  Our client contact Sean Besso informed us that registration had doubled for this year, so making sure everything was set was even more important than usual.  We provided flat screeens for some of the exhibitors, projection and sound support for eight breakout rooms, and screens and PA system for the 400+ person keynote theater for the two-day event.  Geoff Briggs was the lead for Productive Media.

The Hynes loading dock was - as always - clean and well organized, which made for an easy load in and out, and the Hynes staff was courteous, pleasant and professional.

Ryan Star At Aloft Hotel

Productive Media provided front of house sound, lights and monitor mix for Ryan Star in an intimate outdoor acoustic set at the Aloft Hotel in Lexington MA. Geoff Briggs engineered with a slimmed down audio package and LED lighting. “I chose to use the LED lighting instruments because they were placed very close to the audience and give off almost no heat” said Geoff, “Mosquito repellent would have been a good call, too.”
