AV Answers Video Lessons: The Importance of Access Time
Here’s one situation that we’ve had our fair share of nightmares about… arriving on-site to find that the crew has almost no time to set up, test, and rehearse for a show. Believe it or not, this isn’t just something from our nightmares… it’s something that happens all the time! It’s no secret that time = quality in the AV production business… and if you’re dedicated to quality for your show, the easiest recipe for success is keeping a close eye on your room access time.
In this edition of AV Answers, AlterEgo’s own Brian Burkhart joins us from on-site at a major AlterEgo client show in Denver, Colorado… where he’s pulling out all the stops to get a show ready with limited load and set up time.

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.
