AV Answers Video Lessons: Crew Communication
Despite our best efforts, most in the AV production industry haven’t mastered the art of telepathy… but thankfully, we don’t have to! For mid- to large-scale shows, the ability for your crew to communicate quickly and easily with each other is mission-critical. But all too often, it’s an overlooked element that could spell disaster when not handled properly.
In this edition of AV Answers, AlterEgo’s own Brian Burkhart breaks down what you need to know about crew communication… from types of communication systems, the do’s and don’ts for crew comm, and when you should consider it a must-have for your AV services.

What is AV Answers and Why Does It Matter?
Let’s face it: we’d have a tough time finding an event planner or meeting professional that would list “managing AV services” as their favorite part of their job. At its worst, AV is confusing, complex and… well, boring. But it doesn’t have to be! Great audio visual is the backbone of an awesome corporate event, and truly a make-or-break element when it comes to any successful meeting.
Yet, most meeting professionals will admit that they only have a cursory knowledge of what really goes into their events’ AV production… and for many shady AV companies, that’s exactly what they want. After all, it’s easier to rip off unsuspecting event planners when they can hide behind complex and confusing technical jargon (especially in their proposals). But at AlterEgo AV, that’s not what we’re about… and we’re going to let you in on a little secret: audio visual shouldn’t be mysterious. Behind all of those weird acronyms and bizarre phrases are some pretty simple concepts that are the real difference between eh and awesome AV.
