When the Pro Football Hall of Fame asked RBDG to upgrade their GameDay Theater from a 35mm film chain to high resolution video, we called on Digital Projection for the hardware. The results: excellent reliability, great service and stunning images.
Kennesaw, GA (Vocus) February 13, 2010
The Pro Football Hall Of Fame’s GameDay Stadium Theater recently received a major AV overhaul featuring two Digital Projection large-venue projectors. Specified by the Russ Berger Design Group (RBDG) and integrated by Altel Systems Group, the updated venue includes two rooms displaying separate but synchronized programs, a turntable floor to move the audience, and a series of video displays in the queuing area. By moving the theater from film projection to high-definition video projection, program content can now be updated more efficiently and cost-effectively without sacrificing video quality.
Displaying high-intensity footage shot by NFL Films of Mount Laurel, NJ, the GameDay Theater utilizes two distinct Digital Projection projectors. A 20,000 lumen LIGHTNING 40-1080p display, one of the most efficient large-venue projectors in the AV industry, illuminates the main theater from a dedicated projection booth. The LIGHTNING 40-1080p presents powerful NFL footage on a custom 30’ by 16’ Stewart Filmscreen Cinecurve screen.
Additionally, a 5,000 lumen TITAN 1080p Ultra Contrast projector is installed in a companion theater, which also employs a Stewart screen. The digital content presented by the DP projectors is synchronized with an Alcorn McBride V16 Pro Show Controller, which also acts as a control trigger for the automatic doors, rotation of the theater, and all aspects of lighting and video playback.
The Pro Football Hall Of Fame also enlists Digital Projection’s dVision 30-1080p projector in an interactive section of the venue. Displaying archival footage of some of the most recognized coaches and players in the history of the NFL, the dVision feeds an approximately 12’ screen.
