“Univision shows are very intense and collaborative,” says Frank. “We pack a lot into the set and the looks are very dynamic — Univision and the Latin Grammys don’t shy away from big looks. We had only three days to put together a three-hour show and 20 performances. Not many teams can pull that off.”
“The advantages of being able to work ahead on content prepro using the disguise timeline and taking advantage of all the design tools and visualising features saves time and avoids many hours of content re-renderins on site. It just makes everything more efficient.” Concludes Moncada.
The Visual Solutions team also found other advantages to using disguise. “The ability to use multiple editors on one system to perform cable and wireless alignment was key to this project,” Pauly reports. “And versioning made it easy for the content producers.”
The eye-popping video projection mapping depicted chapters from the cultural history of Saudi Arabia from ancient times to today; it also ushered viewers through the new building, which was shown in beautifully abstract wireform, solid and tiled modes. Content was created by Belgium-based Dirty Monitor.
“We used up to 10 outputs per machine, and the 4×4pros worked like a charm,” says Pauly.
In addition to the video projection on the façade, the grand opening also featured a holographic LED show driven by a v.2.5 system and the mapping of a model of the building, which was run from a 4×4pro.
