Dead & Company 2017 Summer Tour
For the Dead & Company performances at Boulder, CO’s Folsom Field and NYC's Citi Field, PBTV was brought in to provide two side screens to serve as I-Mag. Two 30’ high x 20’ wide video screens made up of digiLED Mirage MC7 blow-through screens were rigged on either side of the stage. With its 12% transparency, the high-resolution digiLED Mirage MC7 screens can deal with higher speed winds over any other high-resolution LED video screen. Learn more about this project here.
Springsteen’s The River Tour
PBTV provided close to 400 tiles of its digiLED DLP 5.9mm LED product for Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band’s The River tour. There are 180 tiles creating the onstage back wall, and 192 tiles for two side screens at 96 tiles per wall. The side walls each create an upside down “T” shape so that content can be played either horizontally or vertically. The popular new indoor/outdoor DLP 5.9 LED offers 6,000 nits of brightness, and the tiles’ light weight, each at 6.6 kg (14.5 lbs.), makes it easier to rig. Click here for more on this project.
