Yes, the technology was really great! But I gotta ask this. Didn't Katy's second dress remind you of "Hot dog on a stick"?

Yep, both my neighbor and I commented on that.

Where did that Lion Go? That was a quick take down to a stage.

After the lights came back up there was a comentator talking and in the backgroud you could see the field. I noticed them rolling it out of the stadium. So they must of had it tucked away to the side somewhere.

Only 25K Amps???  That certainly looked more like 50K amps.  They must have been using a lot of LEDs.

Remember, most if not all of the equipment is running at 208/240 vac because of how easy it is to distribute large amounts of power over smaller cables. Thus, they are using 5,200,000 watts of power at 208 vac, not 3,000,000 watts of power at 120 vac. You also need to take into account that the projectors(for example) only take around 20amps at 208vac each, that's not as much power as one would think.

 

Also, here are some renders.

....and a timelapse of the setup.

......and here are some more numbers of the lights used.

I don't know much about the video mapping but am I safe to assume it was projected from the ground to up under the stage? how high up was the stage, doesn't appear to be very high.

All of the video content was projected from above, presumable in a double or triple stacked configuration(2-3 projectors stacked on top of one-another projecting the exact same image to effectively make it brighter). I will see if I can find some of the renders showing the projectors. Most of the stage was no more than 6 feet high, although most of the stage used LED screens mounted on the floor, not projection.

oh, I see. Makes more sense now. I really enjoyed the effect of the pillars hitting the floor from the bottom up. Thanks for clearing that up.

Jim,

 

I agree its not Christmas Lights but I am installing a Matrix the year in the roof. 81 sticks @ 16 feet long each and 50 pixels on each stick. I want to show a movie on it and pictures if this does not work the will become a replace of the 5 trees I have now. If this does not work I will do projection of the movie next year either on the roof or the shed.

Haha Jim... Depends on the movie clip being played and if it ties the sequence to what you want them to see from the lights. I am pleased each year that kids and adults tell me what they like best. The beam coming from the mega tree to baby Jesus gets  the highest votes.
