The December 2010 issue of Projection, Lights, and Staging News profiles the Guns N’ Roses Chinese Democracy Tour.
Chris Nathan, the video programmer, and Greg Shipley, the production designer, talk about how Compulite Vector consoles work with lighting and video:
Nathan says they rely on a Catalyst V4 media server and have three on this tour. He runs the video elements much as Shipley runs the lights. “That’s the beauty of running video from a Compulite console,” he says. “It does all the things that the lighting rig can do, fading content in and out, bumping the faders, creating white flashes for cymbal crashes – that’s what makes it really cool.
