Wishing you all prosperity in the New Year!

EventMediaTech’s hat must be tipped.  The entirety of our staff, technicians, vendors and family made 2017 an incredible year of growth and prosperity. As we all face the start of our own resolutions, Eventmediatech will set new challenges and hold itself to ever higher standards. Upon some internal reflection, we have come up with a few to get us started!

  • We will do our part to make sure the DMV always remains a successful market for the AudioVisual Industry via our business integrity and industry training.
  • We will listen, harder than ever, to our technicians and clients to find inspiration for improvements.
  • We will train and promote from within, establishing career relationships with our Technicians.
  • We will look out and care for each other, with an understanding that it is our duty to protect and support our Technicians.
  • We will cut back on beer and carbs! (At least until Friday)

We also quickly wanted to say thanks to everyone that made it out for this year’s holiday party!  (9’X16′) Super Nintendo Mario Tennis was equal parts epic and damaging to our vision.

Also I am not against shamelessly plugging pictures of my cute kid for likes. That is all, thanks everyone!

 

 

Support for ACTSPWC @ Water’s End Brewery

On this cheerful mid-holiday Sunday, local artists and beer enthusiasts alike gathered at Woodbridge, VA local brewery, Water’s End. The amazing (and thirsty) crowd generously participated in give-aways, raffles and substantial cash donations, all made in support of the ambitious Action in Community Through Service Charity Foundation.  Event & Media Technologies was humbled to offer sponsorship towards local issues concerning housing, emergency assistance, sexual assault, domestic violence and suicide prevention. We can all continue to back this pivitol foundation by visiting and donating to ACTSPWC.ORG

None of this of course, would have been possible without the compassion of one local man, Travis Morton! As a well known audiovisual technician, Travis needs no introduction.  As an emerging art and social issue spokesman, this is just the start!  We applaud his community service and agree locally distilled beer and art will always draw a crowd!

 

Advanced TAP Classes in Session!

 

Winter TAP (Tech Advancement Program) sessions have started, and the team jumped right in with an advanced Projection class! These classes are designed to propel eager-to-learn technicians forward into greater roles of responsibility and knowledge. Today’s (8) hour course covered everything from Max Resolution & Refresh Rate to Converging and Blending.  With hands on learning employing use of Eventmediatech’s  Barco RLM-W14’s and real-world scenarios, we take a practical and fun approach to learning projection. Check out the video below!

Edge Blending!

Remember, these classes are held FREE OF CHARGE! With lunch provided! The reason? We know that by bringing techs up, we all benefit. We encourage those who posses a solid foundation in one or more fields to Contact Us and request a spot on our exclusive training courses. Due to the high volume of inquires already, we will be steadily hosting classes ranging from Audio Theory & Digital Consoles to Lighting Control & Programming throughout the Winter and into the spring.

Eventmediatech storefront gets a facelift!

The new storefront design was a welcome improvement as part of this year’s renovations. It’s really starting to feel like home! We wanted to make sure the departments (Technical Staffing, Production & Rental, Business Admin and Accounting) each had an office to conduct business in and common areas to work together! Message us to stop by, meet each of the department heads and get more involved.

We know the fall rush is upon us, does your upcoming event require Technical Staffing or Equipment Rental? The departments are open for consultation!

Thanks to everyone in the Event & Media Tech family!

Promotional Filming begins!

Over the weekend, Event & Media Tech and Glass River Media teamed up to begin the filming process for several production videos.  The series will cover a broad range of services, team members and operational procedures that make Event & Media Tech the family and business it has become! The filming was a fun team building experience, that many of the full time staff got to participate in.

Glass River Media took tremendous stress off the afternoon. There was normal business to attend to coinciding with the filming and they understood that completely. They have great artistic vision and can present ideas in an easily digestible manner. We are tremendously excited to continue gathering footage and focusing the script!

  

 

 

Congrats To Our Featured Technician: Josh Young

Our featured technician, Josh Young, has been killing the game in a serious way! After only a year and some change, he immersed himself heavily into the video realm of production. Being in the driver seat, managing graphics is where Mr. Young finds himself most comfortable. His robust technical skill set, coupled with his superb client-facing personality, makes him a very popular Graphics Operator for some of the largest productions our nation’s capital has to offer. In fact, NASA was in town a few weeks ago at the Omni Shoreham Hotel and Josh got to shake hands with Elon Musk!

Being punctual, professional, and polite are just a few of the qualities that shine through Josh’s work. Any crew would be lucky to have him!

We’re always looking for hardworking, professional, and personable A/V technicians to add to our roster. Please visit our Technician Portal for more information on how to become a part of our team!

The rig will boast (8) Chauvet Rogue R2 Spots, (16) Ovation 910fc and (36) Chauvet Hex 7, (links below) so come see him in action!

Summer Renovation: Hard Hat Zone!

Eventmediatech is no stranger to moving, building and when necessary, demolition! With hard work from the team, we managed to demo and remove over 7000lbs of interior construction materials just a few days. The renovation is being focused on organization and efficiency in partnership with our new Bar Code Scanning system. These new processes will allow us real-time inventory management and faster response time to inquiries.

Check out the Team in action!

Updates to the finished warehouse & offices to follow in the coming weeks!

 

Congrats To Our Featured Technician: Zach Smith

A special congratulations to our Featured Technician, Zach Smith. Working hard, staying positive, and finishing the job with a smile are just a few of the traits that make Zach the sought-after technician he is today. The A/V freelance industry was somewhat new to Zach a couple years ago, but he wasted no time immersing himself and gaining all the knowledge he could possibly get his hands on. He continues to attend our Tech Advancement Program (T.A.P.) sessions and his repertoire is constantly growing. Thanks for your hard work and dedication, Zach!

If you are interested in becoming a part of the Event & Media Technologies freelance roster, please visit our Technician Portal and submit your resume directly through our website! We’re always looking for motivated and professional team members and we hope to hear from you soon!

Summer TAP Classes; always improving!

Summer TAP classes are in full swing. We have multiple class types happening with different class sizes.

As the backbone of any great event, the GAV tech is always hard at work and rarely has time to increase skill levels, on-site. For the techs that are looking to take the next step in their careers, we offer GAV-GAVOP training. This will give them the confidence to run a small event themselves, and a basis in which to ascend to a lead tech.

For our lead techs, we offer specialized training, and cross discipline training. These techs may be a V1 and need to learn a specific switcher. These gear specific trainings are always 1 on 1, and taught by industry experts. Pictured is Ryan Leonardo learning the High End Systems, Hedge Hog 4.
