The Journey Continues

The start to the year has been Evolve’s best yet and preparing for InfoComm and Tech Forward 2019 got us thinking a lot about the complicated journeys companies take in the live events industry – and our own. Just as our namesake would suggest, we’ve been building upon our existing partnerships while forging new ones, improving our core services, and striving in 2019 to help make our customers’ paths a little easier. 

Each announcement you’ll find on this page connects directly with that goal. We’re committed to finding the best brands with tech that performs day-in and day-out, building distribution partnerships with those brands, and providing more options than any company in the U.S. We’ll worry about the tech trends, so you can worry about the show. 

Service The Evolve Way

One of the main complaints we hear from customers who have gear serviced through manufacturers is how agonizingly slow it can be, and terms vary from product to product. Going 5-6 weeks or more with your gear on the sidelines is a revenu killer, that’s why we’re expanding our capabilities in 2019 so you can worry less about sluggish service. 

  • Gear serviced in days, not weeks
  • Service options on warranty and non-warranty products
  • Access to Evolve loaner equipment so you don’t miss out on business
  • We keep it “boutique” by offering Service exclusively to customers who have purchased their equipment through Evolve

Few companies can lay claim to providing the equipment that powers some of the largest stage shows in the world, and disguise is one of them. Ever heard of a band called U2? It’s disguise servers’ that power their world tours. That’s the caliber of disguise’s family of products, both on the hardware and software side of the equation and Evolve is happy be their only U.S. sales partner. We’re also excited to add their incredible lineup of gx, pro, and plus servers to the Evolve arsenal for rental and distribution. You can also look forward to disguise Academy classes starting in early fall of 2019! 

Nova Star designs and builds LED processing solutions for a variety of applications, most notably in the entertainment space. LED is becoming the go to tool for live events, and our customers are trying to constantly push the limits of LED capability, Nova Star’s display controls are a perfect pairing for our inventory of tighter pixel pitch panels. It’s a partnership that promises to add even more premium LED performance to your capabilities. Evolve is pleased to now be distributing Novastar products. In addition, we will be offering service and certified training for select Nova Star equipment in early Fall 2019. 


We’ve been busy adding tons of inventory for rental and distribution from several of our existing partners. This is vetted, show-ready tech that will transform your business.
