Cosmo Pro AV managed the entire show’s video technical support from the multiple LED screens, AV Stumpfl media server playback system and LED mechanical door located in the center stage. The content played an integral role throughout the show with several video surfaces begin situated around the stage. Many of the performances involved the performers and talent directly interacting with the video content and LED screens. With certain acts choreographed to synchronize with the transitional and dynamic visuals. Many of the illusion acts involved large set pieces and properties that needed to be quickly and seamless moved on and off the stage and therefore a mechanical door was embedded the center LED.
