DPI Gets Into NFL Hall of Fame
A 20,000-lumen LIGHTNING 40-1080p projector and TITAN 1080p projector are part of a NFL Films theater display.
GameDay Stadium theater in the Pro Football Hall of Fame features two DPI projectors.
Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith aren’t the only ones getting into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
It turns out DPI also has been inducted — err, installed — in Canton, Ohio.
A LIGHTNING 40-1080p projector feeds NFL Films content to a custom 30-by-16-foot Stewart Flimscreen Cinecurve in the GameDay Stadium theater inside the Hall of Fame.
A TITAN 1080p Ultra Contrast projector is used in a companion theater connected by a rotating floor.
I’ve never been to Canton, but this has me thinking it might be worth a trip. DPI describes the theater as two rooms displaying separate but synchronized programs and a complementary turntable floor to move the audience.
The digital content is synchronized with an Alcorn McBride V16 Pro Show Controller, which also acts as a control trigger for the automatic doors, rotation of the theater, and all aspects of lighting and video playback.
The 20,000-lumen LIGHTNING projector combined with that NFL Films guy’s voiceovers and a rotating floor are pretty enticing.
