Giant Video in the Round
When the 1-minute pregame video concludes, the spandex screens are released from their mounts — using technology developed by TLC — and flutter to the floor where the Laker Girls cheerleading squad sweep them away in seconds. Then, the lights go up and the fans cheer the player introductions.
With video proliferation the trend for all manner of productions today, Bilida stresses the importance of video-playback flexibility.
“Video has become a staple, not a luxury, in shows,” he says. “We use the 9500GLs, not just for the screen drop, but for productions with rolling screens that automatically move up and down, screens on moving tracks that travel around a room, and plasma or flatscreens instead of a DVD player. The 9500GLs have proven to be a practical, high-quality video playback source, [and they] are also easily portable for shows on the road.”
