LONG BEACH, CALIF. — June 14, 2011 — PSAV® Presentation Services has been selected by the InfoComm/Lighting&Sound America Staged Events Awards judging panel as a "Winner" in the "Best Overall Staging for a Corporate or Association Event - Technology budget over $200,000" category for its Transitions Optical project. PSAV will be honored on June 15 at InfoComm 2011 in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center.
InfoComm is the largest and most comprehensive pro-AV event in the world, with more than 32,000 AV professionals and 950-plus exhibitors. Lighting&Sound America is a monthly publication dedicated to covering the entertainment technology industry.
Presented with the idea that the future is a "blank canvas" by Transitions Optical for its 2010 Annual Convention, PSAV conceptualized filling the 84,000 square-foot ballroom at Disney's Yacht & Beach Resort with just that—a blank canvas or immersive video screen—to support the meeting message: "Never Lose Sight of the Possibilities." The collaborative effort resulted in the production of a Wide Area Video or WAV that is longer than a football field and the "World's Widest Single Blended Video Display System."
PSAV is the leading supplier of audiovisual and event technology to hotels, associations, producers and meeting planners worldwide. With more than 800 luxury hotels, resorts and conference centers worldwide, PSAV is totally committed to making every live event an unforgettable experience.

"The judging panel was notably impressed by [their] submission and the award presented is a testament to the notable staged event work produced. We congratulate them on this achievement."
