Perils of Large Monitors

You’d think someone would have come up with a solution to this by now:

Perhaps the solution is, instead of splitting the primary monitor, split the SECONDARY monitor and put the image there. Having not messed with big displays like this I have no idea, but it seems like there isn’t a lot of thought going into the screen many thousands of people are looking at.

I saw that at Summerfest in Milwaukee yesterday. I was over there to see Michael Franti & Spearhead, as well as Jack’s Mannequin. As a lighting designer I tend to watch the lights during shows, and the addition of a hazer to the stages, and a bunch more moving lights, makes for a good show. Franti is always a good time, Jack’s Mannequin sounds a lot different than in the studio but their energy is incredible, and I also stumbled into Ryan Shaw’s performance. That guy has an amazing voice, and proves to me that while I’m not usually a big R&B fan there’s parts of every genre I enjoy. Good beer, decent weather at the end (cool, not raining), and great crowds made for an excellent time, even if I did get home at 2 AM.

P.S. Sorry for the crappy photos, I left my camera at home and the iPhone doesn’t cut it.
