I think my favorite Showcase story was from three or four years ago. We had a huge screen setup. Literally a floor to ceiling screen. High definition, beautiful. And we had a nice sound system with it because we were showing video clips from events that we had produced over the past year,
During the course of the week in setting up and rehearsing for this showcase, some of the techs had decided, well, you know, hey, we have this big, beautiful screen, so why don’t we plug one of the PlayStations into it and make it into a gaming screen too, because that’s really an immense TV screen at that point.
