BEYOND’s Custom DJ Booth



With the BEYOND custom DJ Booth we are able to meet your audio visual needs. Our custom DJ Booth sits on a riser and holds a 55 inch high definition TV screen. The Booth itself is 42 inches high and when placed on the riser it sits at approximately 6.5 feet. With the DJ Booth and riser painted white it makes for clean background that can be easily customized. The riser can be customized with a companies logo or graphics. For a wedding you can use a couple’s monogram. On the TV you can show anything from your logo for branding, a slide show and videos or movies. Most recently at the D Magazine Best of Big D event we had a go pro stationed above the custom DJ Booth and on the TV screen below the DJ we projected the DJ himself spinning.

Get to Know the BEYOND Video Team


Lightly Photography 2015
Last week we introduced you to the video team and you saw why the video team loves doing what they do. This week we want you to get to  know more about the faces behind the cameras.  We first have Melissa Weyer our Video Production Manager who will be celebrating 10 years with BEYOND this October. Melissa began her career in Maryland attending Howard Community College majoring in Business Management. Next we have Judy Philips our Associate Video Department Manager who will have been with BEYOND 6 years this November. Judy studied Digital Media at the Art Institute of Dallas. Our newest video team member who has now been with BEYOND for 2 years this past August is Whitney Cochran our Video Specialist. Whitney attended the University of Oklahoma majoring in Broadcasting and Electronic Media.

Each member of the video teams unique backgrounds and experiences helps them to work seamlessly together. Melissa’s background in business management as well as her previous work in the hospitality industry and office environments allows her to lead the video team with her attention to detail and assigning tasks to the team. She makes sure nothing is missed not only on the wedding but throughout the editing process. Judy’s background in digital media helps her as she films to visualize the end product prior to going into the editing of a video.  With Whitney coming from live sports programming it helped prepare her to be ready for anything on the day of the wedding where she is ready to capture all the emotional moments that can occur.  With each of their diverse set of skills it allows them to view the wedding day and editing process through their own creative eye and together they transform the footage from the wedding day into beautifully crafted stories. 

During their free time Melissa, Judy & Whitney each enjoy spending time in the outdoors. Melissa enjoys having a cold drink anywhere with a view with her husband Justin. Judy enjoys camping and attending concerts and festivals with her girlfriend and Whitney likes to go to the lake where she enjoys paddle boarding and wake boarding. Each of them is also a proud pet parent. Melissa has 3 dogs at home with Justin, Judy has her cat Jack who is famous on Instagram and Whitney has 2 chocolate labs named Bear and Charlie as well as her cat Harley.

Create a Warm Atmosphere with BEYOND’s Stringer Lights

A great way to add a warm ambiance to your next event is to add stringer lights into your lighting design. Stringer lights can be utilized in both outdoor and indoor spaces to create the mood you are wanting to achieve. Here at BEYOND we have used stringer lights, also known as beer garden or pizzeria lights, in our designs to add a unique touch to an outdoor patio, suspended over a walkway for an inviting entrance, strung across tents and over guest tables to highlight the event space.  The stringer lights can also be used to add a unique touch to your design by stringing them through windows or across a pool area. In the photo of the tent below our twinkle lights were used to string across and highlight the chandelier centerpiece. For a variation lighting design elements clients can combine the twinkle and bulb stringer lights. Another way you can create a certain mood or ambiance for your space is to change out the bulbs in the stringer lights for a different color effect. One thing you want to consider when adding stringer lights is to see if there is an existing structure you will be able to use or if you will need to add a structure such as a support beam into your design. BEYOND offers support beams including a unique cedar wrapped beam to attach the lights to. The cedar beams works great in outdoor spaces or if your event has a more rustic feel to it.

BEYOND’s new 80 inch TVs

When talking with a client in regards to their audio visual needs for their event we want to make sure we are providing the best service to suit their needs. For our clients who we have provided our HD LED 80 inch TVs for they have been used for viewing of speakers during a conference, rehearsal dinner slideshows and corporate dinners. Often times in rooms that have limited views where the floorplan does not allow for some of the audience to see the screens upfront we will often put the 80 inch TVs as supplementle visuals on the side of the room. The TVs along the side of the room are then tilted at an angle for easy viewing. When helping a client choose between the traditional screen and projector or the 80 inch TVs we also consider the look of the room the event is taking place in. For example at Cafe 43 at the Bush Center for a clients rehearsal dinner we suggested the 80 inch TVs  to match the clean and chic feel of the room.
