About Doyle Martin

I am a production and AVL expert dedicated to bringing creative visions and concepts to life. I left my production home of 16 years in November 2021 and am currently building my own consulting business while keeping my options open for the right opportunity.  Since 1994, I have had the opportunity - both as a freelancer, small business owner, and an executive team leader - to work in delivering solutions on a scale that most people rarely see while up against timelines that seem impossible. My diverse, well-rounded background allows me to understand almost any organization or project's technical, creative, time management, and team building needs. I pride myself on the ability to creatively overcome challenges while creating an enjoyable experience for both my team and our clients along the way. I believe the job of a true leader is about more than creating and executing a strategic vision or strategy. It is about being a trusted team member, mentor, and leader. It is about creating a culture of earned respect and mutual trust where everyone believes they are a vital member of the team. It is about a firm commitment to the complete satisfaction of every customer, stakeholder, and employee.

I find it interesting that when I read the articles about the future of XR and AR there is very little or no discussion on how it will impact live events in the very near future.  Having XR/AR designers working with the creative director for a live event we will see AR  rendered scenery, "more information" prompts, and fully immersive environments - all in addition to the traditional AV, lighting, and scenic on these types of shows.  I know, the wider world of pro-AV tends to forget its brothers and sisters in the live events space or simply don't feel qualified to write about our part of the industry.  But hey, throw us a bone now and again!  

Totally in agreement with you, Matthew.  I don't think we've even scratched the surface yet of what may be possible.  It feels like those very first baby steps with moving lights or video projection.  It's hard to even conceive of how it can all be integrated into an event.

Fitting in with all of that and not mentioned is a coming trend that I think will have just as much, if not more an impact.  That would be the use of AR (Augmented Reality) at live events and concerts.  It will provide another creative canvas for both content, information, and rich visuals.  True, it is still a bit farther away from widespread deployment than the options discussed in the video, but not that far and its effects will be very far-reaching.

Hi, Lulia,

With more wearables in the pipeline (google glass, MS Hololens, etc.) the sky is the limit to what the future holds.  I'm with you, though, it's going to be really interesting to see what all the creative minds in the live events industry will come up with for this, so far, underused technology.
