AV Tech from 2017 That We Love
So far in 2017 we’ve seen some incredible audio-visual technology released that has the potential to revolutionise the industry as we know it. This week, Flightcase Warehouse is taking a look at just 4 of the standout products that the brains in AV have brought to us, plus the benefits they could offer if you’re a pro working in the industry.
Osprey’s Talon G2 Encoder:
Osprey has been known to create some stellar products in the past, and their new encoder is no exception. Designed for AV professionals, this Osprey encoder allows streaming to up to three separate destinations, enhanced by a touch screen LED interface. To top this off, the kit has built in security features that promise a streamlined user experience, as authorised credentials need not be re-entered following every stream thus saving heap of time when on a job. For more information, you can visit the Osprey website here.
Samsung’s LED Cinema Screen:
Whilst purists may question notion of a cinema screen that does not make use of a projector, Samsung’s new LED cinema screen promises richer colours, no loss of focus and a consistent sharpness that is hard rivalled by traditional projection means. The self-laminating screen has a peak brightness level of almost ten times that of conventional projectors – as well as the potential to be utilised in many different industries, such as AV, as well as traditional cinema. AV pros working in events and broadcasting may want to check out the enhanced experience these screens offer. To learn more, read the official release here.
Delta DLP 4K:
On the subject of broadcasting, Delta group (alongside its brand Vivitek) has unveiled a 4K DLP solution, that is touted as the ‘world’s brightest 4,000 lumen laser phosphor illumination source’. If this makes sense to you – and sounds like good stuff – you’re in the right place. With a spec comprising four UHD-4k cubes, the platform can manage multiple video sources on one display, streamline control of several different video displays or even send a single signal to multiple outputs. Visit the Vivitek website to learn more about this brand new platform we think has great potential.
Sony’s 4K Projectors:
Sony are well-known purveyors of quality products that have mass popularity, and their new range of 4k projectors promises to uphold this tradition. Using a laser light source, the projectors can sustain a total brightness of 4500 lumens for up to 12,000 hours – which is perfect for the meeting room sized spaces that the projectors are aimed at. Integrated with ‘Reality Creation’, the projector processes every single input to ensure that the final image represents the sharpest, and most lifelike image possible. Learn more on the official website here.
These are only a few of the vast number of diverse products released this year – this week, next week, or even last week could see technology released that remodels the AV industry completely. This tech though, is always expensive and exceptionally valuable to its owners. This is why at Flightcase Warehouse, we design and manufacturer tailor-fit flight cases that provide unbeatable protection for the latest kit.

It’s no secret that the modern music industry makes the bulk of its money out of live performances. The world over, performing artists are directing more and more effort into delivering a live experience that will draw in new fans, and encourage a core audience to repeatedly spend their cash on a single “brand” as such. This live experience often manifests itself as a tour – and financial success often depends on getting it right.
There’s no single secret ingredient as such that makes a tour a success. Wowing an audience and making a performer appeal to whole swathes of new fans isn’t a singular thing. Yes, bands can play their songs 100% accurately, with 110% effort – but sometimes this is not enough. If not co-ordinated with a production team that’s equally razor-sharp, performances can leave a pretty bitter taste in the mouth of fans.
Let’s start with the bare essentials. Every touring artist should closely examine their sound equipment and mixing technology. Established performers will have a pro sound engineer to produce the perfect mix, but it’s always worth making an extra effort to understand the tech fundamentals that are behind your signature sound.
Spending a little bit of time learning about the production element of tours (and with vast online resources and by mining your professional network, you may not even have to plug in jack), will come with big payoffs. An artists, whether amateur or professional, who takes a comprehensive and careful view of their performance is certain to garner a great reputation and see reward in the form of bigger crowds, returning fans and wider opportunities.
It sounds obvious, but not rehearsing in musical isolation is also so important. Finding the time to rehearse with the full production set up in action means that from day one, the “live sound” as a whole will be worked upon and the performance will run (hopefully) like clockwork. Today, audience expectations are high and unfortunately for many, getting up on stage and doing what’s traditionally worked will no longer cut it. Embrace the full picture and tap in to fan preferences early on, and you’re on to a winner!
No matter what the genre, “spectacle” is becoming part of the standard package. When you look at some of the top earning world tours at the moment (Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Adele and Bruno Mars for example) a large part of these shows are based around lighting cues, LED displays, mini movies etc. The added-value element of these features is why they’re used, so finding a budget-friendly alternative to A List investments will go far.
Well thought out, on brand and smaller scale performance spectacle is totally doable. Starter kits including light fixtures that create a suitable stage ambience, smoke to play with light effects, banners for crisp projections and a dynamic backdrop greatly enhance the experience and communicate that extra value, experience-led performance the modern audience demands.

Flightcase Warehouse has recently worked on a number of real head-turning projects for some inspiring customers – and we wanted to share a few of our favourites from the last month with you! All 3 of the below projects were proudly designed and manufactured at our Staffordshire workshop following a close consultation from the client. Check out our Intsagram here for the latest projects live as they’re signed off!
Rally Car Protection for Viking Motorsport
How often do you see a flight case for a car? It's all part of the day job here at Flightcase Warehouse! One of our more recent projects saw us build a vehicle-sized protective case to transport a rally car for motorsport brand Motorsport. Our team built a reinforced steel base to ensure a secure environment for such high-value cargo paired with specially designed locking systems. We’re really proud of this one – a truly unique project that will travel with the Viking Motorsport team throughout their tour of the USA this summer! Best of look in your competitions, Viking.
Presentation and Personalised Storage for Converse
It’s not just UK clients that we work with – Flightcase Warehouse recently undertook a project with the Netherlands Head Office and Factory Store branch of global lifestyle brand, Converse. Our totally bespoke road trunk-style flight cases were fully branded with stylish black engraved Converse logos and featured custom-made, elevated inserts for enhanced display capabilities, storage and protection. The trunk cases serve a dual purpose of industrial-style display units and clever protective solution for storage and transit. An eye-catching visual statement perfect for the Converse brand.
Transport and Storage for Stevie Wonder Tribute Band
Another recent and exciting bespoke project saw Flightcase Warehouse constructing a case that could safely transport the entire lit backdrop for a Stevie Wonder tribute band. The case features a unique interior racking system that securely lodges the individual letters in place as they are stored or transported to different gigs across the country. See our Instagram for some brilliant pictures featuring the “STEVIE” illuminated letters, right there in our workshop.
