Living up to its branding as Sponsors of Tomorrow, the innovative Intel booth at CES 2013 presented the electronics giant’s forward-thinking products with AV support from WorldStage, the new brand for Scharff Weisberg and Video Applications, Inc. CES 2013 marked the fourth consecutive year that WorldStage partnered with Intel on its booth; WorldStage also recently provided AV support for the keynote at the Intel Sales Management Conference.
With the promise of connecting to richer experiences with Intel, the company’s presence at CES 2013 in Las Vegas showcased third-generation Intel Core processor-powered Ultrabook devices and tablets as well as several phones and tablets powered by Intel Atom processors.
“The 2011 Intel CES booth we worked on won Intel’s best overall or Grand Prix award at the company’s Third Annual Marketing Innovation Awards,” says Josh Weisberg, President at WorldStage. “So we were excited to build on that momentum again this year.”
This year WorldStage teamed with client Taylor Group and designers 2LK and (Rockwell Design) on the AV components for the Intel booth, handling all of the AV integration. WorldStage provided two media walls composed of Barco C5 LED tiles; one LED wall served as a decorative element to engage passersby and pull them into the booth, and the second acted as the primary presentation screen for an ongoing series of demos, performances and product introductions which were integrated into the Spotlight Theater’s AV system.
WorldStage also supplied a Meyer-based audio system for the booth and presentation area as well as a number of 46-inch thin-bezel monitors.
James Sarro was project manager for WorldStage and managed the AV integration for the booth as a whole, and Terry Nakamura was the LED technician. Raul Herrera handled network systems and video playback, as well as electronic interfacing with the lighting team to manage lighting effects with the Spotlight Theater’s presentations.
Ben Judah and Leslie Di Rado were the executives at Taylor Group.
