    InfoComm 2020 Cancelled far. The contact tracing has so far put at least 100 cases directly to the event covering over eight states. One study suggests that there could be over 250,000 that will be traced back to Sturgis. Personally, I believe that they won’t be able as many who spread it won't be responding to...

    Switching Projectors

    Just to keep terminology correct, a dowser is someone seeking water using a divining rod; a douser is an object that extinguishes light (such as dousing a fire). Though, similar to other words, the longer that these two are misused, they will be correct with time.

    Animated Projections

    Often PP is all you need. Make sure that you have permission to do the live streaming. Just getting rights to do the production does not inherently give you the rights to stream it as well.

    Switching Projectors

    If you have dousers, you could always send the same signal to both projectors and then have the douser blocking the one you don't want used. Fade through black to give the douser the time to close/open.

In addition, you can use them for less necessary means, such as digital marketing in your lobby, or special events like a haunted house. However, knowing...

    Requiescat in pace, Grant Imahara

    This is so sad. I am not usually one to get too broken up by the passing of a celebrity, but like you said, he was more like one of us.
