TEDxCambridge at the Boston Opera House | AVFX Boston Audio Visual Staging

TEDxCambridge at the Boston Opera House

As the audience entered the Boston Opera House, they were engulfed in sights and sounds signaling a very different event. 2016 marked a major expansion for TEDxCambridge. The recent Fall Event in October attracted over 2,000 guests. The event, directed by Dmitri Gunn, relocated to the Opera House in 2016 and he again selected AVFX Boston to provide all audio visual services for the sixth time. In 2016 AVFX supported the event with widescreen projection mapping on a set designed by Paul Tate dePoo III of New York (see video below from 2016). In 2017 AVFX did some outstanding lighting effects on Atomic Scenic rental stage elements.

The audience was immersed in dynamic imagery provided by Tank Design. This assignment was a challenge AVFX approached with great confidence having provided AV production services for past TEDxCambridge events and a growing portfolio of corporate and non-profit events.

Barco projectors were mapped, focused and aligned to create a unique look and feel for each of the six TEDx speakers  and the closing dance performance.

Lighting and sound were also designed and executed by AVFX technicians and an AVFX technical director called the show.

“Projection mapping is one of the best technologies for meetings. It lowers the cost for building a stage, gives you more flexibility and shortens the time to change the look of the set…the resolution is amazing and the movement of images added the wow factor.”
