    Moving Heads with Music-Activated Mode

    I would look into Chauvet DJ's intimidator line. They have a fairly large range of sizes/prices and can do what you asked for.https://www.chauvetdj.com/products/category/moving-heads-scanners/

    This was sent to me by one of the other local theaters in town, looks like the first real opening plan I have seen from a Theater, thoughts?https://ultimateclassicrock.com/covid-19-concerts-fan-pods/?fbclid=IwAR3iDkgW3mgNZuplFj4EJC2GKWfMjZky6m1Zoqxb3pg5c8xi99KA_zXpaGU

    Re-opening Procedure after Covid-19

    I don't want anyone to think I am in any way doing all of it on my own. As the building "expert" my job is to make building specific recommendations and recommendations to events, but my university has a task force of around 40 qualified internal and external experts who make the final...

    Re-opening Procedure after Covid-19

    Attached is all of the information I have been sent by our reps, it looks like it has been approved on various things but we are just looking at it as a possible option in conjunction with a lot of other procedures. At this point, if it doesn't hurt, it's worth looking at right?

    Design Issues and Solutions Projector Screen with Full Stage Wash Lighting

    For a further example here is the wash with no projector at all, again; the lights cannot be moved any further SL or SR in order to cross light as much as possible, they are already at the extremes. I do like the idea of a dark rug, that may meet the requirements of still having the wood stage...

    Design Issues and Solutions Projector Screen with Full Stage Wash Lighting

    It is just about 16' tall x 25' wide. Along with the extreme angles all of the lights are currently pointed in, the worst reflecting are turned down as low as possible to help minimize any issues.

    Design Issues and Solutions Projector Screen with Full Stage Wash Lighting

    I guess I could have added this earlier, we are working with a Panasonic PT-RZ120, which should have plenty of both distance/output for the space.

    Design Issues and Solutions Projector Screen with Full Stage Wash Lighting

    Attached is a picture, please keep in mind that them walking in front of the projector is not the issue, it is just the reflection onto the screen, there are only 7 lights on each at around 25%, any higher and it instantly washes everything.It definitely feels like a catch 22, but I wanted to...

    Design Issues and Solutions Projector Screen with Full Stage Wash Lighting

    I will add a picture in a minute, we are actually running presentations all day in the space. I agree that diffusion will not necessarily help but I wanted to check and see since I do not personally have much experience successfully using diffusion gels. It is cross lit as much as possible; but...

    Design Issues and Solutions Projector Screen with Full Stage Wash Lighting

    Hello, I am new to an older style proscenium theater that is a VERY multi-use. My issue is with when we have PPT presentations it is projected onto a screen flown just behind the proscenium and main curtains very simple and foolproof.
