Read about the Versa RAY video fence thing

The Versa RAY by Element Labs made it's debut with Nine Inch Nails' most recent US tour, and they wrote a little article about how they came to implement it.

When Martin Phillips took over the show design for Nine Inch Nails' With Teeth tour, he knew that video projection on an opera gauze screen would be impractical on an outdoor amphitheater tour. "But it had played such a key part in the previous legs of the tour that we were loath to lose its drama and spectacle," he explains. "I was looking for a way to put the band IN the video footage."

It's a cool read if you're into the technical aspects of the Nine Inch Nails tour. Don't forget to hail s8n for sending the link in.
