During these difficult times, we have developed several Outdoor Graduation Options for groups between 100 to 1,000 cars. The Graduations can be during the daytime using LED screens or for a bit more of excitement, at night, with our high power digital 18,000 ansi lumen laser video projectors coupled with 19.5’ x 35’ screens. We provide a powerful FM transmitter as well as a line array audio system, lighting, staging, etc. You provide the parking lot; media and we do the rest.
