On November 18th Pix2o had the pleasure of providing video screens for the grand reopening of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel (Grand Ole Opry) in Nashville, TN. Attended by over 1,500 of country music’s who’s who, the hotel was reopening after floods damaged it in May 2010.
Pix2o provided three 4-meter wide VideoReel™ SkyRolls™ for use during the show. The three screens showed a large variety of videos; in some instances with a different picture on each display and in others a continuous scene across all three screens. The show producers made extremely good use of Pix2o’s rolling features as they displayed video while rolling up and down many times during the show.
The screens rolled up for performers to move from behind the stage and rolled back down once they were on stage. Dramatic effects were achieved by rolling the screens up and down independently of each other or in sync.
The outdoor stage was very compact and the VideoReel™ SkyRoll™ was perfect for the job as it rolls up into a small rectangular truss. This allowed the set designers to fit the roll-up screen in a very small place, keeping the set small.
Check out the video for a brief view of how the VideoReel™ SkyRolls’™ were uniquely used for this show.
Full Show in HD 720p.
