On February 10, Pink Talking Fish paid tribute the Pink Floyd masterpiece The Wall at The Capitol Theatre using a LED wall created with CHAUVET Professional PVP X3 LED tiles, all supplied by Image Production Services.

The featured video show was designed by Vin Pugliese.

Using Resolume Arena 6, Pugliese served up a mixture of custom-designed visuals and live camera feeds to envelop the stage and the room from walls to ceiling with a procession of images that captured the spirit of the music. Working in total visual harmony with the video images was a lightshow by Victor Cornette that utilized the theatre’s house rig and a floor package of eight CHAUVET DJ Intimidator Hybrid 140SR fixtures. 

Pugliese’s video wall, which was flown about 4’ over the deck and ran almost the entire width of the stage, was made up of 124 PVP X3 tiles. He used the 3.9mm pixel pitch tiles to display high resolution artwork that reflected the songs being played, such as showing pulsating brick walls during “Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2),” and a writhing fire-colored David Byrne during “Burning Down The House.” He also called on the PVP X3 tiles to show images of the bands being celebrated and live video feeds of the artists on stage. With a brightness of 1500 NITs, the panels had no problem showing up against the intense lightshow and surrounding projection images.

“The panels were super bright and clear,” said Pugliese. “We had a lot going on throughout the evening, since visuals are a big part of the show.  The massive video wall was obviously a focal point of the design, and the panels were definitely bright enough to stand out.”
