    I work for the ETC Rep in Dallas. We have 16 different dimming and control systems throughout the space. We dim everything from the house lights in the catwalk to the leds in the bunker clubs. (and a lot of things in between) There are also a couple of Pharos controllers on the job as well.

    There is still lots of programming to do, but the system is up and running.

    I went by yesterday and they already had moved the production truss from the one end to the center for Jonas Brothers in a week and a half. They kick off their tour from there so they are setting up early to allow some time to cue and rehearse. But the show is in the round.

    Very impressive, too bad they just cut Dallas from our 2009-2010 tour schedule. All that downstage truss, what's it doing, I don't see anything hanging on most of it but I can't imagine that's house stuff?

    It is the House Truss. And there's still lots more in storage right now as well.

    The biggest in the world I believe... At least until the latest and greatest super-stadium is built.

    In this economy, it will be that way (the biggest screen) for a while.

    Its about 160 feet long and 72 feet tall. It's also about 90 feet off the ground. More info about the stadium can be found here:

    Look's like God's view of the field will be obstructed a bit by the big screen and support truss. Have to see how that plays out. ;)

    According to the site the screen cost $40 Million. I want.
    Can't wait to see what it looks like at night.
