We surrounded the audience with screens which wrapped around all four walls of the ballroom. There wasn’t a bad seat in the house
Nearly three miles of copper and fiber optic cable, as well as six wireless networks, were needed to connect all of the technology. 22 Watchout-configured Dell computers, running 17 independent videos, kept the entire presentation in sync.
The primary focus of audience attention was on the stage—flanked by two 12ft. x 36ft. screens. Those most important messaging screens displayed videos, live IMAG and event branding.
The event was designed and coordinated by Rafanelli Events. They integrate all details from the videos to the décor. AVFX Boston and Rafanelli Events have worked closely for many years to make certain the event is memorable. Lighting was designed by Port Lighting.
The videos were split into 14 pieces that we stitched together and synced across the system. We programmed Watchout to treat them as a single “pre-split” video and distribute that to the corresponding computer to make the blended, seamless images.
