Wall Street Journal conference creators and executive producers, Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, have always depended on The Trillium Creations when it comes to producing the “All Things Digital” event, and for the sixth consecutive year AV Concepts was selected for audio, video, and lighting for the event.
For their part, the AV Concepts team had to be ready for anything that happened because as promised, everything about this show is surprising, spontaneous, and unscripted. This year’s challenge was sending SDI digital program video and audio feeds to a networked “ingest” system so the show could be shared “live” on the Internet by bloggers in virtual real time. The team also provided, as they did last year, a direct to edit system to deliver DVDs of the show to the client within 24 hours from the conclusion of the show.
The show is held annually at The Four Seasons Resort Aviara in Carlsbad, CA, and is billed as bringing to life “the energy and excitement of the digital revolution.” This year’s speaker roster included: Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zukerberg, Sony chairman and CEO Howard Stringer, Time Warner president and CEO Jeff Bewkes, IAC’s chairman and CEO Barry Diller, Amazon.com’s chairman and CEO Jeff Bezos, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates and CEO Steve Ballmer, to name just a few digital industry heavyweights.
