  Description:

In service to Sun Technical Services, Inc. of Sunderland, MA, Zasco Productions provided video production / I-MAG for projection on four 15'x20' video screens.

The venue was set "in the round", and featured a four sided stage, with a 15'x20' screen flown above each side. This configuration allowed the entire audience to see the performer, regardless of which way he was facing, or how far away they were seated.

Our multi-camera live-switch "fly pack" system was a perfect fit for the job. The venue was "in the round", and thus camera placement was critical. In addition, the promoter could not sacrifice any seats for camera positions. Our Canon 26x and Fujinon 28x lenses allowed us to place cameras approximately 100' from the stage, and still get fabulous, close, and medium, I-MAG shots! In addition, a camera positioned just outside the arena captured an interpreter for the hearing impaired, which was placed in an insert in the I-MAG picture. Our top-notch video director, video engineer, and camera operators, delivered a high quality I-MAG program for everyone in the audience.

Zasco Productions also assisted Sun Tech with the video projection, by supplementing the rig with our Sanyo PLC-XF45 10,000 lumen video projectors. Our lead projectionist worked with Sun Tech to engineer and focus all the projectors, before the entire rig was flown out to trim height.

Planning and positioning was critical, as each screen was actually rear-projection. Projectors were flown from the lighting truss, just above each screen and shot across to the opposite side. Although the projectors were mounted above the top edge of the screens, and had to be tilted slightly, perfect focus was achieved thanks to the tremendous lens-shift and keystone correction features of the Sanyo XF45 projectors.
