The spectacular show is performed across a multi-level stage that is part of a 3.7 million-gallon pool, with projections that transform the space into stunning locations transcending time and space throughout the 85-minute spectacle. Different projector positions, zoom and focus values are used for multiple screens, including flat stage surfaces, floating fabric being tracked through the air, uneven curtains and water fountains, delivering a captivating and truly unique water stage production.
After wowing audiences since September 2010, the world-renowned show overhauled its entire production workflow, investing in a new fixed technology infrastructure, powered by disguise. There was a unique brief on Macau's acclaimed $250 million show; to preserve Dragone’s original design aesthetic, whilst increasing technology efficiencies through the upgrade of critical hardware and infrastructure.
“One of the key challenges I had through this migration was to safeguard the integrity of the original video content,” stated Eve Bernier, Lead Projectionist since the shows creation, “Not only were we able to achieve this, but ended up adding an extra punch to our outputs, creating even more magic for the audience. This was thanks to the combination of the disguise VFC card capabilities, and the signal carrier, Lightware Ubex, which allowed for an increase in resolution, and considerable gain in surface coverage per projector.”
