Oomen’s innovative concept and set design immersed audiences in a total visual and
audio experience showcasing each element in a different chapter onstage. Using a single d3 4×4pro media server to play six custom pixel-perfect timecode shows, one for each element, on giant LED screens.
“The video set up was massive with 450 square meters of 3.6mm LEDs,” says Oomen.
“Besides the six timecode shows we also needed the flexibility to quickly switch to one of the DJ inputs. The DJ inputs had a different, more light-weight pixel map to make it workable for live performances. With the disguise 'remappable' set up we were able to provide a high-resolution pixelmap to the content creation team and a DJ pixelmap to our guest DJs early in the process. This gave the content team a huge time win.”
Additionally, “on some screens we mapped the live video input on top of the video content,” he reports.
Live Legends’ Bas Knappers was the lighting operator for the festival, Jim de Brouwer the disguise programmer/operator, and Dave van Roon and de Brouwer the disguise project set up team. Muen Hang from Illuminate Productions provided the disguise media servers.
