Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions Frozen, the Broadway musical brings a world of snow and ice to the stage with video design by Finn Ross of FRAY Studio and AV support from WorldStage that will include ROE Visual products. For this collaboration FRAY tasked WorldStage with supplying a large complement of equipment including state-of-the-art media servers, the latest in laser projection, and a cutting-edge LED wall to help transform the set of Frozen into a magical, icy domain.
According to WorldStage account executive Lars Pedersen, "We provided an extremely large roster of complex video-centric equipment for Frozen, which FRAY uses in quite unique ways. WorldStage has been involved with the show from the beginning. It's been amazing to follow the evolution of the production on its path to Broadway."
A ROE Visual Black Pearl, BP3 LED screen, measuring 12m x 9m, with Brompton processing forms the back wall of the stage, that predominantly displays skies and blends into the scenery throughout the show. A custom network topology was designed to facilitate signal distribution and online backup between the processing and the LED panels.
Lyle explains that the ROE Visual Black Pearl BP3 LED screen was chosen "for its fantastic color handling, especially in the low end. It is also one of the lighter weight 3.9mm products and fits into a very tight space while not compromising the weight limits of the theater. The partnership with Brompton finished off the package with their fantastic processing and network-based hardware."
Asher Robinson is the engineer who installed the system. At WorldStage Randy Briggs and Bryan Dominick are the project managers for Frozen.
