Zasco Productions provided video projection, staging, audio, and scenic equipment, as well as production personnel for the show.

In addition, Zasco Production met two distinct challenges of producing an event in this venue.

First, we met the challenge of conserving space in "Center Court" while still providing rear projection. By using our ultra-short throw lenses, we were able to project an image on a 7.5' x 10' screen using just 8' of rear projection distance. This allowed for optimum screen placement in areas which would otherwise be useless for seating, thus allowing for maximum capacity for the event.

Second, the large, highly reflective and reverberant "dome structure" over "Center Court" presents a challenge for audio reinforcement. Zasco Productions overcame this challenge by providing a 6 speaker distributed sound system. By locating loudspeakers in precisely calculated locations around the front of the room, and using state-of-the-art processing equipment, we were able to provide highly intelligible sound for every seat in the venue.
