All the unusual screen surfaces together with limited space and mounting options for video projectors created a real issue for both the projectionists and content teams. This also meant that very unusual content templates were required.
Well after everything had been signed off and the build was underway, we found out that the screens had not been made accurately to the original models, throwing the specially made content into jeopardy, as no time was available to re-render.
disguise loaned VTR Digital a 4U disguise system so they could prepare content and test it immediately. This ‘right-first-time’ workflow meant that when the content arrived on site the disguise Operator knew exactly where it went, what it would look like and how to sequence it into the show.
Like many productions, the set doesn’t always match with your plans, thankfully, the disguise advanced Projections Simulation tool-kit coupled with it’s Feed Warping and Projection Mapping abilities meant that we could easily re-configure the 4 different outputs on-site, so we didn’t have to go back and re-render content.
We relish the opportunity to integrate, and writing the appropriate control profile in disguise for the ETC console took just an hour or so by one of our excellent disguise Operators. (This profile is now available for all our users). This level of integration, along with the disguise rock solid performance meant that we could leave them with this solution with confidence for a trouble free 8 week run.
