C3 Conference


Richard Runge and the AV Matters team are valuable partners of VAS Communications. The collaboration between our groups has been instrumental to the growth and success of VAS. For over 10-plus years Richard has helped us grow with our clients as smaller meetings become multi-conference room symposiums. AV Matters is more than just a staging company to VAS, as their technicians have become vital to our projects. From large to small meetings, or a last-second equipment rental/delivery in a remote southern town, AV Matters has never failed us.

Thank you for the help you provided during FALA’s annual conferences. Customer service is getting hard to find. When I get it, I have to say thanks. Let’s get that schedule booked for next year as I cannot imagine using anyone else. – Shad Haston, CEO

“Richard: We made the right decision. You did everything that you said you would do.

You and your team were magnificent. You are a great project manager and a real pro. Your sound and lighting people were fantastic. The people back stage were excellent. Everyone moved fast, were responsive, gave Jason all the support he needed to create what he wanted, and were a pleasure to deal with.

AV Matters helped us have a very successful Retreat. Richard, please pass on our compliments and thanks to your team from the Akerman team.”

Spirit of exploration

Originally commissioned by NASA for the Apollo program, the 223-foot long Saturn 1B rocket located in the open air Rock Garden was transformed into a giant projection surface comprising an eye-watering 6,528 by 1,050-pixel image that used 80,000 lumens of projected light. Visuals were accompanied by a dramatic musical score, actual launch audio, and other sound effects, in conjunction with a “Rocket Garden Light Show” that uses moveable lights to illuminate rockets throughout the Rocket Garden, complete the immersive sensory experience.

To create the spectacular, Delaware North turned to long-term partner and integration experts AV Matters to perform projection mapping, lighting, and sound.

“The unique challenges for this project were the length and curvature of the rocket and to ensure that the striking visuals could be seen from all angles of the festive display,” explained Phil Maingot, managing director at AV Matters.

“We’ve used AV Stumpfl technology for a number of years and for Spirit of Exploration we used the inherent programmability of Wings Engine Stage to ensure that images from 8 projectors were managed as well as show content and control of over 80 gobo lights for the show. Wings Engine Stage performed flawlessly throughout the duration of the event.”

Philip & Crew,

Just a quick note to say thank you for a great job at the SEC in Greenville. Particularly in meeting the last minute needs (desires) for the Middle School Program. You not only delivered – but did so with such eagerness to bring a solution. My many thanks.
