Project Title Description

There are many screens at AT&T Stadium. There are two rows of "ribbon" screens surrounding the stadium bowl, the "Diamond Vision" 💎 and the "AT&T LiveFX" board. Usually different content plays on all the various screens but in certain "takeover" situations immersive content plays across all stadium screens.

From a design perspective, the challenge on this project was to create a user interface familiar enough to stadium personnel that they would feel comfortable enough to takeover all the screens in the stadium with the press of a button.

In addition to writing the show control software, I got the great opportunity to evaluate my programming in situ while serving as its operator on a several occasions.

During the takeover situations the director would call out which "moment" he wanted played with an emphatic countdown. My narration in the featured video is a much slower (and less enthusiastic) interpretation of his fairly epic call outs.
