Production Resource Group, LLC, a leading supplier of entertainment technology, has launched PRG Video, a new division complementing its audio, scenic, and lighting operations. The new division was introduced to the industry at a two-day demonstration event in October at New York's Manhattan Center.
Tim Wiley heads the new division as vice president of PRG Video. Mr. Wiley went to PRG from Florida-based LMG, where he earned a national reputation as a technological innovator for the corporate staging industry. He also will serve as general manager of PRG's Orlando office. Bob Murdock, an Emmy-award-winning producer and journalist, is general manager of PRG Video operation in Orlando.
Tim Kuschel, formerly a master show technician with LMG, has been named general manager of PRG Video's Las Vegas operation, and Art Lavis, PRG's longtime specialist in large-format projection solutions, heads PRG Video's New York operation from its office in Mount Vernon.
PRG has stocked its three PRG Video locations with a full inventory of state-of-the art equipment, including native high definition (HD) cameras and projectors as well as switchers that perform seamless transitions between standard and HD formats.
Top-of-the-line equipment available from PRG Video includes the Snell & Wilcox Kahuna switching system, Di-VentiX high-resolution switcher, Grass Valley LDK cameras, Panasonic PT-7700U and Digital Projection, Inc., 12000DSX, 35 HD and 22K 40HD video projectors, and the new Element Labs Versa Tube HD.
In addition to big-event technology, PRG Video also offers products and services custom tailored to help small-to-medium corporate meetings and events achieve professional results while minimizing costs.
