Dale adds; “The system also allowed me to provide content creators Blink with the correct pixel templates. The biggest stumbling block for this project was how to create the upstage centre pyramid. Aside from the engineering of custom 45-degree/diamond frames by ACASS Engineering, the challenge was maximising the output raster, plus gaining 45-degree rotation from the 2x4pro to an LED processor without any rotate function. By treating the LED screen as a projection surface and rolling the projector output I was able to satisfy my overall concerns early on. Once the feed map was cut up for the 1920x1080 feed to handle the pyramid within the constraints of the LED processor, I was a lot happier about pushing on.”
Dan found the Sock Puppet feature to be “incredibly useful on this tour as control of disguise is split between me and Steven, who is able to toggle different parameters on and off. Setting different attributes to a DMX channel that it wouldn’t normally default to was key to getting everything integrated with lighting.
The media server has pretty much been a non-issue the entire tour: Every idea or question has been met with a quick solution within the software, and considering how powerful disguise can be it certainly is intuitive in its layout making changes with ease.”
