- What is video projection mapping? If you're not familiar with the term or have not seen video projection mapping in action, you will be amazed at this an exciting new technique that turns virtually any surface into a vibrant display. Specialized software and technical support are used to project an image to make it fit on irregularly shaped screens, other objects, or even buildings. For example, a simple wedding cake can be turned into a spring show of growing flowers or design.
- In-house AV companies are vendors to the hotel that pay a commission to the facility to be in-house. You are not required by any hotel to use an in-house audio visual company. While many of these companies are very reputable, it is important to understand the potential challenges with using them. First, in-house AV companies pay a very high commission to the hotel in order to be located within the facility. This commission can often go higher than 50% on the dollar. That means in order for them to ensure profits, they must dramatically increase the rates that they charge you, the customer, to make up for the commission they pay the hotel.
