Columbia University is an Ivy League university located in New York City. Each year, it holds its weeklong graduation event in its outdoor courtyard. This eight-day celebration includes the graduation ceremonies of different schools within the university and culminates in a general commencement for all graduates.
For a number of years, Advanced Staging Productions has helped to develop a comprehensive approach that provides a more intimate and engaging experience for graduates and their guests. This involves changing the layout to accommodate various configurations and audiences. It also entails using an audio design that incorporates multiple line arrays, LED video walls, cameras for image magnification and recording, and a reality TV-style live entertainment video production.
