Grammy award-winning Imagine Dragons has skyrocketed in popularity since the band’s debut album hit the alt rock scene three short years ago. Working hand-in-hand with Moment Factory, its creative team chose Barco XHS-400 media servers as the powerful video engine, coupled with event projectors and High End Systems lighting to transport concert audiences on a psychedelic journey.
For its Smoke+Mirrors tour, the design team created eight LED columns to
serve as massive multimedia screens for constantly morphing and
shapeshifting video projection. Moment Factory developed the
groundbreaking video content, which was completely driven by the media
servers. A small scrim section was also brought to life using Barco’s
HDF-W26 projectors with built-in ImagePRO Athena™ technology for
flexible scaling. High End Systems’ Solaspot Pro 1500 fixtures mirrored
the musical dynamics with brilliant lighting.
Sophisticated, yet easy to use
Despite its bold, raw power enabling fast end-to-end show design,
creation, setup and control, the XHD-400 media server couldn’t be easier
to use. Video producers can easily develop their show from idea to
realization, simplifying 3D visualization for projection mappings and
ultimately simulating an entire show for convenient preview.
