As revolutionary as black and white TV once was when it ruled the airwaves so many years ago, it has paved the way for what we enjoy now - high definition display resolution that mirrors real life. This technological jump illustrates how PSG Inc. has transformed the business, allowing them to flawlessly assist their clients with event production that is light years ahead of the 'old way'.
Long gone are the typical exhausting days of pre-show event production, where directors, designers and talent stand onstage or are on-site for extended periods of time while the technical crew focus lights, program lighting levels and set up video for the show. Event managers and producers are forced to wait until rehearsals, to see how the final lighting, video and sets would look like with the onstage performers, and to ascertain if the planned locations even work after all. If changes are needed at this point, it is usually difficult and expensive to make, creating a bona fide nightmare for all involved!
Producing An Event, The Right Way
Although it might be easy to imagine an ideal event, making it a reality is way more difficult. Technical challenges and requirements need to be addressed and properly integrated at the beginning to avoid last-minute costly adjustments.
That’s why PSG Inc. uses the award-winning LIGHTCONVERSE 3D Show Platform software in its studio to create highly realistic pre-show visualization, thereby eradicating potentially problematic event scenarios. This new and highly efficient way capitalizes on accurate 3D simulation and presentation, which can save hours or days of costly event programming and venue time.
An event producer can breathe easy, knowing that PSG Inc.’s technical expertise, along with their imaginative and clever solutions to event logistics which will bring their vision to fruition within budget and on-time.
Here’s how it works: PSG Inc. will build ‘virtual’ or 3D versions of the stage or space in order to perform the lighting, video, set design and programming well before arriving at the venue. Client input is given early on, when changes can be easily made, and then the client can approve of the outcome based on what the show will really look like (including lighting, video, moving objects and more!), which helps in avoiding potential headaches down the road. By using PSG Inc.’s pre-show visualization services, the whole show experience right from conception to the final curtain becomes less stressful, highly satisfying and an enjoyable process.
The above images show the type of detailed realism you can expect when planning an event with PSG Inc.’s expert use of LIGHTCONVERSE software. Looking closely at the real room images, compared to the virtual images, one can see how accurately they resemble each other.
By creating the event virtually (while keeping your idea intact, including the event’s look in the venue and how we can adjust for budget), the event can play out before your eyes, with all the factors coming into focus. This matters because the precious resources needed to carry out the event are not guessed, offering an incredible value. Our goal is to show our clients the final product while keeping to the budget, all without sacrificing quality.
We pride ourselves on showing you money-saving possibilities! For instance, we’ll look at every facet of the production and say, “What can you save on....do you really need 24 moving lights when we can do it with 30 leko lights that are just 20 dollars each!”
Once all of the moving parts are analyzed like in the scenario above, we calculate a list of materials and services that are needed to successfully produce the event, allowing you to tap into your staffing and product needs accordingly (using your own resource list or ours). It’s science morphed with art, and by employing this tactic first, it typically equates to significant savings for our clients’ overall budget, by as much as 15% to 35%!
In other words, you continue to be the artistic director to the production, and we are merely the conduit that stays true to the vision and budget.
PSG Inc. has also perfected the planning and implementation of ultra-fast room turnovers, necessitating up to 100 staff members for each stage’s metamorphosis. Your event’s guest list (whether it’s six board members or sixty thousand convention attendees) will be turbo-charged by the seamless transitions and flawless execution.
