Screens Director Drew Findley and Video Director Dirk Sanders worked with PRG Mbox Extreme media servers to merge video content and live camera work for Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 tour.
Jay-Zâ€™s Blueprint 3 tour brings together the artistâ€™s urban edge, innovative video technology and live camera content creation that keeps on top of their game. The city skyline video wall set, designed by UVAâ€™s Matt Clark, offers multiple video surfaces to create compelling imagery throughout the show but the real technical magic is in the complex video system feeding the video walls. Sanders and Findley take full advantage of the capabilities afforded them by combining the Control Freak Encore DMX Bridge system with the PRG Mbox ExtremeÂ® v3 media server. Production Resource Group (PRG) provided a five-server system for the tour, which has played arenas and stadiums around the world. more
