Stage-Tech had the honor of participating in the 50th Superbowl compound festivities in San Francisco. We were tasked with lighting a massive banner featuring the Lombardi trophy that was hung on both sides of the Embarcadero 4 building. In the months leading up to the event multiple walk throughs took place narrowing down the logistics, namely lighting positions and footprint we would be allotted to accomplish the task. We went through several simulations in Vectorworks utilizing the light meter tools to come up with the desired even wash over the entire banner. Several custom IES files were imported for non-stock VW spotlight fixtures for various design options, but at the end of the day the mixture of 750 watt ETC source 4 Pars and ERS fixtures proved to be the best solution.
Here is a look at the deisgn:
The design worked perfectly and the Lombardi Trophy banner was visible from miles away!
