This may be of interest.
Lighting used to washout advertising projection on Sydney Opera House.

Thatís a good scale of perspective for the R2 Beams (and the Rogue Series in general).  And to think they come tighter and brighter too!

Thanks for posting this story. I'll be forwarding the link. Good on you ALW. This is really too stupid even to be considered political -- using one of the world's iconic buildings to promote some sports nonsense. It's just bad taste. Nice lights, too. -F

The issue that led to the protest has been big news in Sydney and across the State for 4 days or so. The debate in the wider AV industry has been interesting. The calls for protest in the community raised the question of the rights of the crew doing the projection, to safely do the job they are lawfully engaged to do, and calls from those in the industry, as members of society, for the event to not go ahead or for companies to refuse the job.

Is that not akin to a neighbor building a structure (on their property) that's sole purpose is to block your dish because he doesn't approve of what your watching on TV?

Well, the head of the Opera House has probably come out of this as politically bulletproof.

Her opinion was overridden and her job threatened. The resulting storm was violent and outside politicians' control. Nobody will want to mess with that again.
