I spent August 2012, 2013 & 2014 looking after the on site AV requirements for the BBC at their Edinburgh Festival site at Potterrow.
The main venue (blue tent) had 2 stacked projectors fed from a Kramer switcher. In the outdoor area a 15sqm LED screen provided information for visitors, recorded material and live relays from across the site. I also provided my own bespoke ticker software for easily updated messaging on the screen. The smaller, bar area (pink tent) contained 2 plasma screens with local and remote input facilities.
A Broadcast Pix system was used as the main switch and for keying and playback purposes. A Behringer X32 mixer was programmed with preset scenes to accommodate the local audio routing to the venue areas and green room, production office, radio OB’s and studio.
I designed the AV distribution between all the different zones, making use of a cat5 based system to allow video and audio to be routed from any location, to any location across the site. This allowed a level of versatility essential when dealing with multiple varied productions every single day.
In 2013, I provided public wifi access using Ubiquiti software and access points.
