Radio City Music Hall
2012 Christmas Spectacular


The Radio City Music Hall's Christmas Spectacular Relies on Digital Projection

Vote for this installation in the Live Design Excellence Awards here: http://livedesignonline.com/excellenceawards/

Immersive architectural mapping took top billing at this year's Radio City Christmas Spectacular in New York City. Seen by more than 1 million spectators each year, the Christmas Spectacular is an anxiously anticipated yearly dedication to the sights and sounds of the holiday season. Tasked with continually surpassing the previous year's production, MSG Entertainment brought together a select group of precision audio/video manufacturers and service providers to help deliver on that goal. Central to this year's production were 11 Digital Projection International (DPI) LIGHTNING 45-WUXGA, 3-chip DLP projectors, each delivering 30,000 lumens, enlisted to illuminate the historic theater's ceiling and proscenium arch with awe-inspiring imagery.

Incorporating custom 3D imagery, a video-game style action narrative and animated scenic imagery that envelopes the stage, the 2011 Christmas Spectacular surpassed all existing standards for this annual event. Larry Sedwick, senior vice president production, MSG Entertainment, explained, "As one of the leading companies in live entertainment, we are focused on delivering our Christmas Spectacular to audiences with content that has never been presented before in a theatrical setting and utilizing advanced technology features available in today's market, while still honoring those traditions steeped in our show." Sedwick continued, "So, in our recent production, we used large scale digital projection and gave audiences the feeling of being immersed in an array of image, sound, lighting, theatrical, and pyrotechnic effects as each scene transforms to the next."

New York-based batwin + robin productions created the projected animations that playfully enveloped audiences in more than 180 feet of bright, colorful visuals. At times, such as when a train traveled around and above the stage, animation traversed the arches as a visual feature. In other instances, DPI's LIGHTNING projectors displayed accent imagery, supplying a visual wallpaper of sorts in order to complement the on-stage theme. Due to the varying depths within the existing proscenium arch, overcoming any shaded areas within the arch with incredibly bright imagery was critical. The digital content displayed on the arch, as well as the image blending, was managed by 7thSense Design Delta media servers. Visual Acuity, an independent media and design consultancy, advised on the key technological aspects of the application by supplying expertise in the overall projection, custom content and edge blending implementation.

In order to uniformly project across the entire 180 foot plain, placement and alignment of the projectors was a key venue consideration. The bulk of the projected imagery emanated from two sets of four LIGHTNING 45-WUXGA projectors, with each set mounted onto choral risers flanking the main seating. Two LIGHTNING projectors, both using a custom mirror-bounce system to create portrait images, were installed in the projection booth. A final LIGHTNING projector was installed in the booth in order to project straight landscape format images across the top of the arch. Each LIGHTNING was installed with mounting frames, courtesy of RP Visual Solutions.

Tech Tip

How to Make 3D a Great Viewing Experience


The "3D at Home" experience has been greatly hyped for the past few years, and sadly, many consumers have experienced generally disappointing results. We have heard countless end- users comment that 3D "just wasn't for them" and that the experience "was terrible." After asking more questions, it became obvious that the reason many people have a negative impression of 3D video, is that their initial experience was poorly designed. In most cases, the biggest culprit was the size of the image.

Currently, the most popular 3D display for home use is a 46" flat panel. Simply put -- this is not the kind of display anyone should be relying on to cast judgment on a major new technology. Especially considering that this is a technology that, at its core, is intended to immerse viewers in a 3D environment. Immersion is simply not possible with a 46" screen.

So what are the key elements in making 3D a great entertainment experience?
