PLSN - Jonathan Beswick Interview Quotes

"Yes. Last time around, I used a 53-by-13.5-foot LED wall upstage, and then LED fascias on the set carts. In the air, I had previously used the Nocturne V-Lite with its 28mm resolution. This time I wanted to go with a higher-res product, and I wanted to go bigger. The problem we had to overcome was, how do we go bigger within the same core design and make it look fresh? After considering it, I redesigned the large upstage screen area. It is now 63 by 17.9 feet, and I broke it up into seven separate panels."

"We provide a big-looking presentation for Def Leppard; a great backdrop for a really great band. Weve been told that its one of the best looking shows that are out on tour right now. I will take that compliment any day."
